Never disappoints! Great food and lovely staff. Our favorite spot in the North End.
Delicious food, very accomodating, excellent service. We were a reservation for a party of 5. 2 friends showed up unexpected 45min after we were seated and eating. The staff swooped in, added 2 seats and quickly served the other 2 so that we nearly all finished our meals together. I was very impressed with how they handled this on a VERY busy evening before the Boston Marathon. The food is excellent with generous portions and it feels as though you are dining in a lovely New England home. Highly recommend.
Meal was slightly below average for the area, but was reasonably priced. Service was slow but not excessively so. Nice ambiance for a meal with friends, cozy and inviting atmosphere though slightly loud. Meal was over seasoned, but meat was perfectly cooked. I would give it another try but won't be dying to get back there anytime soon.
Wonderful meal !! Frank is a great host. We will be back
excellent italian food - great wine list - great service
The food was delicious and the service was very good
Always good and didn't disappoint this time either!
Great! Best italian in boston
Wonderful, traditional Italian cuisine
Quaint little gem on Hanover Street. The food was very tasty and the staff couldn't have been better. Jose was our waiter and took very good care of us! Cozy, comfortable, great service, delicious food. I recommend the mushroom risotto with safron. They also had pretty nice wine list available by the bottle. House wines were available by the glass. We definitely will be coming back.
Service and food amazing Selvin our server was the best! Highly recommend
My family and I enjoyed Easter lunch today. It was beyond perfect.
Food good, not best in North End but still good. Service terrible, rude waiter demanding higher tip despite terrible service
Tight quarters but excellent meal & good service. Great location in the heart of the North End.
Awesome dinner- all five of us loved our meals!!
I thought the food was good but not spectacular. The waiter was extremely helpful especially with suggesting kids food. There are not a ton of vegetarian options - I would have preferred a few more.
Great food and service at a fair price
Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Seating was very tight and not very comfortable. Service was a little slow
Haved enjoyed this restaurant for years! Delicious dishes in all areas. Best seafood risotto anywhere. Veal dishes always perfect!
Lovely ambience, good fun, owner is very friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend!
Delicious. Location is ideal. Perfect for a “North End” experience.
Excellent food ,service was outstanding and the food came out extremely quickly even thou the restaurant was full. Would go back in a second.
We had a late night dinner at this cozy place. Service and quality of the food were outstanding. They serve tender lobster and homemade vegetarian pasta as well. Tastes like the Italian food you get in Europe. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Delicious food and nice place to relax and enjoy the ambiance
Worst host and hostess ever! They were not prepared for my reservation and proceeded to give us all a hard time including yelling at one of my guests and not letting her in for five minutes
We celebrated my son's birthday on our first visit to Ristorante Saraceno last Saturday night. Had to make reservations "last minute" (late Friday night), but had no problem reserving a table for 5 at 7:30 PM. Service was EXCELLENT, house wine was wonderful, food was scrumptious.... love the ambiance. We will be back!!
Although we had a reservation, the hostess was very confused and ran us around their property finding our table. They have several options which includes their main dining and another upper level dining room that you have to go outside to access. Not happy with that whole process. Once seated, ( at a table that was acceptable), there wasn't a waitress assigned to our table. I made a comment to my husband which was overheard by what I think was either the owner or the manager. He was very accommodating; however, and we were able to enjoy the rest of our evening. I want to also mention here that the food was fabulous!!! I am also very critical of Italian food as I am Italian and was raised in a "food obsessed" family.
Horrible experience. Extremely rude. Got up and walked out
Great Italian meal at great American price. First time here, visiting from NJ. Red sauce phenomenal. Service superb: attentive and friendly. Booked table for 8 via Open Table on a Thursday for that Saturday (Presidents’ Day Weekend). Place was packed too! Would definitely return.
Great atmosphere and even better food!!
My boyfriend and I made a reservation for Valentine’s day this year. We arrived early and were seating promptly. The service was really great and fast. They were accommodating to my dietary need and the food was really wonderful! Desert was authentic and fantastic. Would recommend for date nights and romantic evenings.
Great experience, cute downstairs, good wine & love the ambiance! Have the Shrimp Carbonara even though it sounds strange
Food was excellent service was outstanding would go back when I’m in Boston. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Italian food. Many authentic receipts on menu.
Our server was wonderful, she took good care of us. My linguini vongole was superb & so did the mushroom risotto. Will definitely going back when I come visit Boston.
Highly recommend!! Very romantic
