Tables are tightly packed, but we had a table against the wall so keep people from bumping into us. The noise level is loud, but if you lean in, you can hear.

Food was good. Service was okay. The waiter just seemed busy and that’s always hard. My biggest complaint is that we ordered sparkling water for $7.50, but the water guy kept coming by and putting iced tap into our glasses - even before I took a sip. I told the waiter and he said, “Oh, that’s too bad.” and didn’t take it off the check. We couldn’t drink it.

If everyone slowed down and took care of details it would be much better.

Have been several time and love the food. Hubby had the lobster and shrimp with pasta in a red cream sauce. Excellent. I had the special seafood and pasta. Although the flavor was amazing I didn't like the fact I had to dig the two claws from the sauce and use a cracker to get the meat out of them . I guess I wasn't prepared to get so messy. Service was great as always. Oh though i should mention the table we sat at was an outside metal table with two metal chairs. Kinda tacky. This will not stop us from retuning....

Perfect spot for Girlfriends Dinner before our show. Walkable to The Garden. Great ambiance. Not too loud and we were sitting very close to another large table of women. The upstairs dining room is very cozy but not small. We were seated almost immediately. Wine list and food impressed us. Everyone was happy with their order. Service was attentive. Food was very good.

We certainly enjoyed Ristorante Fiore :) It is a very cozy restaurant where it is easy to have a conversation with friends over yummy food. I really loved my veal saltimbocca and they had a veal shank special over risotto that my dining partner ordered, and I definitely had plate envy!! This is a staple of the North End. You will not be disappointed!

My friend Cindy and I were in Boston for a conference. I always dine at the same places in the North End so I asked a friend for a recommendation. She sent me to Ristorante Fiore. It was delicious and our server Samantha was exceptional. The food was delicious and I will definitely be back and add it to my list of favorite dining spots in the North End of Boston.

Great waitstaff especially our wait person! However I’ve had better Italian food at olive garden. Fish was not fresh, chicken was tough/burnt... sauce and homemade pasta was nothing to write home about. Feels like this restaurant is coasting... need someone to lead it that has passion!

I needed to make a reservation last Saturday for our party of 6 women, and we really wanted to go to the North End and have Italian. I was not familiar with this restaurant, but Open Table let me know they had an opening and we took it....what a happy find!

The food was outstanding, but what really brought it all home to us was the service. We were having a tough time deciding what to eat, what was too much food to order, etc. The waiter solved that problem by suggesting we order a couple of appetizers and 3-4 entrees and just eat them family style. He cheerfully got us plates and beverages and made it so fun! There was no judgment about sharing, and he could not have been more friendly. We tried the clams with white sauce, risotto, pasta with Bolognese and a baked sausage dish.... everyone agreed each was just as good as the last.

There are so many restaurants around this part of Boston, but I can personally recommend this one as a neighborhood jewel!

Start to finish this restaurant was a huge disappointment. I had to request silverware and then napkins. The Italian bread was cold and stale. The food came quickly, but that is indicative that it’s a food factory with zero ambiance, and the food fell flat on the palate - utterly tasteless. Could not have been more disappointed. Apparently, this is a rarity in the North End of Boston. Avoid at all costs. Plenty of other good options.

Very disappointing, clearly living on a name it made years ago. Gin and tonics were undrinkable, beer served in the bottle, cappucino smothered in chocolate and cinnamon that i hadnt asked for. The 2 teenagers on reception spent haf their time giggling and looking at their phones and thought it highly amusing to mimic my London accent when i politely said good night. We had high expectations, tgey eere not fulfilled, and we wont be back.

This resturant is a true tourist trip. Our server started out nice with a warm greeting but that didn't last very long. He forgot to place our meal order and we waiting over 90 minutes just starters. He never came back to the table to check how we were doing. The food was ok and nothing special. I would never come back to this sad resturant.

Went to Fiore on a Saturday night and had an 8:45 PM reservation. We were sat promptly and received water. Another 15 minutes later our waiter came to ask if we wanted something other than water. My friend ordered a Diet Coke and got something that tasted like knock-off store cola that had gone flat. We placed our entree orders and then went another 30 minutes before getting a water or drink refill by a staff member. Then 30 minutes later, our server came over to tell us that it was a nice night out and the kitchen was backed up. At this point, we have been seated for well over and hour without food but he wasn't busy. He just kind of was standing around because all of his tables were just waiting for food. Once our food came out, the Saltimbocca had particles of some other dish that contained tomato sauce on it that made for an odd flavor combination. The other entree was a mediocre veal parmigan. There are a ton of places to go that have lower prices for mediocre italian in the North End to try instead.

I had family in town visiting and we wanted a greatNorth End dinner. After waiting 20 minutes for our 8:00 reservation, we were led to the top of the stairs on the second floor and asked to wait in the corner while they finished bussing our table. We placed our orders, no special instruction, and after 45 minutes of no check-in from our server, we finally flagged him down and asked for an ETA on our food. He said the kitchen was backed up and he would go check. 5 minutes later he came back upstairs and walked right by our table, not even acknowledging us. We left after that. The worst experience I've had at Fiore.

My husband took me here on date night after he had come here for a work dinner. He had a fabulous experience, but that was a weeknight. We arrived for our reservation and agreed to sit outside so we could be seated right away. We waited for service for long periods of time. When we finally ordered, we ordered everything as we worried we wouldn’t see the waitress again. Our anti pasta came, but we still had not gotten our wine.
Our food was delicious, as was the wine and may return but maybe on a weekday next time bc the service was horrible.
