We were just arriving into the City after a 7 hour car ride. Famished! The worst part was finding a parking place on the street! But found one after about 15 minutes. We walked in without a reservation and got the last table. It was packed at 8pm on a Monday night which really says something! The restaurant is small... More

This is our first time at Panza. Good thing we arrived early. As soon as we sat down and ordered, the place got slammed and a line formed outside.. the food was amazing! Great service! The beef rib was out of this world...

Poor first impression as we arrived a couple minutes past five (opening time) and several people were standing outside. I figured a staff member would open the door and usher us in shortly. After a few more minutes one group just tried the door and walked in, and the rest of us followed. Not sure how much longer we would... More

Had the chance to go there for dinner last night and it was an absolutely amazing dining experience. I would highly recommend making a reservation ahead of time as the restaurant doesn't have many tables to go around. The atmosphere in there is very similar to the restaurants in Europe with each tables being so close to one another and... More

Unfortunately, quite disappointing. Canned mushrooms, packaged Parmesan cheese, no dessert 😩 Nothing authentic about this Italian cuisine.

SOOO GOOD. And the bread !!! Then we shared the pasta carbonara. EXCELLENT !!!! A nice bottle of wine and a great server.... More

I took my mom here for her birthday and we both enjoyed the experience. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We did not feel rushed. Our meals were great. There was a large selection of both wine and food to choose from. It opens at 4 pm. I recommend eating here but definitely make a reservation!

Excellent Italian food! Portions of pasta are larger than normal, so you may share some pasta and add something else and you will get full! Cozy atmosphere, better for couples than large groups.

We have been to Giacomos over 20 times however the last few times the service has been far below average, the waiters seem to rush you in and out, do not fill requests, and the food has been mediocre . ON this visit to Boston we decided to try a different Italian restaurant. We opted for Panza, the waitress was... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
