Love this place!
Had an amazing meal here! Great spot for getting together with the girls, excellent drinks and super fresh and delicious pasta.
The food was amazing! Pasta was freshly made and perfectly cooked.
Waiter was knowledgeable and quite attentive to our requests. Antipasto plate, Lobster ravioli and pancetta pasta were phenomenal. Great Wine list.
Best pasta I’ve had in the North End! We sat outside on the patio and had a lovely time.
Amazing!! Italy level Italian dishes
The outdoor seating was very nice. The food was expensive for the quantity.
We had a really nice evening here. Our server was wonderful. My daughter had the puttanesca which was deliciousl. I had the cacio e pepo which I liked. They only down note was my husband's lasagna, he was not impressed. But overall really a nice way to spend the evening.
Fantastic food! Would definitely recommend to those traveling to Boston.
Perfect day to sit outside and enjoy some great food.
Food was good, but the bread was disappointingly/unexpectedly cold and hard
Disappointed in the fried calamari. Frozen not fresh
Excellent service and food. We sat under heater which was uncomfortable for a few in our party. Still great overall though!
It was delicious, cozy and friendly staff. I'd definitely go back! Very yummy!
My uncle was visiting and I had to take him to one of my favorite places in the North End before he left town. Generous and delicious portions along with super nice waitstaff will always have me coming back here. The carbonara and gnocchi were delicious!
the food was delicious. However, the service not so good. it could be because it was a packed Sunday night but everything else was great!
Recommendations: penne a la vodka.
Wonderful food and ambiance! Definitely get the shrimp appetizer with lemon sauce!!!
They use paper napkins, overwhelming busy thus little attention to the customers. Staff running around line crazy wisking by the table - no chance to ask them for anything. They don’t offer grated cheese and stated they do not serve dessert. Reasonably priced for the North End.
Amazing experience and the food was perfect
The food was fabulous. I wanted to try something new and the waiters’ recommendations did not disappoint. My husband wanted something that was not on the menu and the chef gladly made it for him.
Food was solid but not exceptional. We got the meatballs and Caesar salad for appetizers, and I had the gnocchi alla sorrentina as my entree. The service was lacking, understandably so given recent restaurant staffing issues, but our waitress never came to check on us after we put in our order and we had to wave her down multiple times to order drinks, get the check, etc. I would go back but maybe not on at a peak time like a Friday/Saturday evening.
Such great carbonara and awesome ambiance, I will keep coming back!
The food was served in a pot and wasn't even hot. It was very poor quality, and tasteless. The place was packed and very noisy, the tables were stainless steel with plastic glasses for water. I can't think of one positive quality. So disappointed
First time to North end seemed like a lot of better places to eat. Ambience was not great. Plastic cups for water. Service was ok. Had chicken parm plate was hot but sauce had no flavor til I added salt pepper and crushed red pepper.
Generous portions of delicious food. The veal was HUGE. The food was all so tasty and the wait staff was amazing. Highly recommend for a nice meal!
Trip to Boston, everything was great
We frequented Trattoria often when we lived here so naturally when we came back to visit for the first time since moving it did not fail to impress. I dream of their lasagna, there’s nothing else like it. Good is amazing, service is amazing, ambiance is amazing. One of the best in the North Wnd by far.
The best tortellini I’ve ever had! Excellent service!
Loved sitting outside and enjoying the view and hustle and bustle of the north end. Wine selection was fantastic. The artichoke hearts left something to be desired, but the cacio de Pepe was the best we’ve ever had. The chicken parm was a classic and great as well! Service couldn’t have been better. I loved in the north end for years and find this place above and beyond the usual traps like Giacomos.
We had an excellent time. We had a 7:30 reservation however there was a great deal of traffic and no valet parking So we were a bit late after looping back around to the Haymarket garage where they validate parking. When we arrived our table was not quite ready but there were three seats at the bar and we elected to take those. Bartender was great. Excellent cocktails, always kept our water full. I was disappointed they were out of zucchini flowers that just goes to show how amazing they actually are. For advertisers we share the Buffalo mozzarella caprese in the limoncello shrimp which are amazing. We had a different handmade pasta. I had the gnocchi sorrentina which was light and delicious as usual. Another diner had the coce pepe what was buttery, peppery and delicious and my husband had the carbonara what he said was amazing. What a great bottle of red and finish the nights off with small taste of limoncello. Couldn't have been a better experience for my birthday
Food was okay but not hot at all, comes out in a skillet, but barely Luke warm, disappointing.
We sat right away, given a choice of inside or outside seating, chose outside. Service was very quick, friendly, professional. We started with the Octopus Salad and Caprese, Excellent! Finished with the Fruti De Mara and Mom's Ragu, both were incredible. Il Panino is a staple in the North End and NEVER disappoints.
Very cozy(tight)quarters…. Sound level was so high we could hardly hear our conversation, server had a difficult time as he could not reach all of us at the table, food was good but have had better.
Fruti de Mar
Mushroom Ravioli B+
The veal Osso bucolic was great.
The fried calamari was rubbery.
Service was spotty. We had to ask for bread.
Attitude was questionable.
Enjoyed a bottle of the "Luma", the meatballs for an appetizer, and the carbonara and cacio e pepe entrees. The meatballs were subtle, but the pastas were phenomenal. Would recommend Il Panino to anyone, especially my Italian friends visiting the States.
Good food, excellent neighbor
Excellent host seated right away outside first experience out since this all started thank you
