Born out of our love of fine wines and traditional food, Ristorante Saraceno Italian/Napoletana style cuisine has become the premiere location for fine dining in Boston’s Historic North End. After traveling the Italian regions and sampling different cuisines, we decided to make our way back home and bring Napoli’s best to Boston. Our biggest challenge was finding the right, high-quality ingredients for the dishes we wanted to serve. We are dedicated to offering only the finest and freshest foods. We have also taken great care in assembling a team of only the best chefs and experienced kitchen and dining staff. Come and taste the experience yourself.

    Everything was amazing! Little bit more expensive than I thought it would be, but it was still worth it! We'll be back for sure!

    We both had the lasagna and it was really good. We were seated in a upstairs area up some very steep and small steps. The server was good, but not great and the wine was $48 for a house bottle.

    We were looking for a great Italian dining experience in the North Boston area, and most certainly found it here.

    The food was excellent. Service was good. But we were seated on the lower level which felt claustrophobic. If we were seated on the main level the evening would have been perfect. I didn’t know to request main floor and not lower level. Again, the food was so delicious that it made up for this. And the prices were the most reasonable of any of the other places in the area which was nice.

    This is not the place to go if you are looking for a well prepared, tasty meal. All in three of us in my party ordered different dishes and agreed our meals were pretty bad to mediocre at best. Not at all worth the money. And the glassware was dirty. We won't be back. On the positive side, the setting upstairs near the window is a lovely spot for people watching, the service was attentive, and they validate parking at Haymarket.

    Fantastic experience! Every dish was cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable! We were even treated to a serenade! It was a special night for our group of 9 people - we definitely chose the right restaurant!
