This restaurant use to be good, it was a huge let down. Sat in the "heated" tented area. It would have been fine except it was a thru way for patrons at their space next door. Doors opened constantly which made it very uncomfortable. The menu has changed with less appealing options as prior visits. I asked if they could... More

We arrived without reservations on a Friday night. No lines, no waiting. We were seated downstairs in the back. Except for the loud party at the table next to us, it was quiet and quaint. Our waitress helped us decide between difficult choices of entrees. We had Ravioli Porcini, Chicken Parmesan, and Penne Amatriciana. I don't think I've ever had... More

This is our second visit to Trattoria Panino and it remained as good as the last time. Any place that serves stuffed Zucchini Flowers like they do, know what they are doing. The food is delicious and the portions are large - so bring your appetite! My wife and son could not finish their Frutti Di Mare entrees and their... More

It's a bustling busy and somewhat loud restaurant. Not for a quiet romantic dinner. The food was quite delicious and portion size was generous. Price was very reasonable $170 for 4 people with drinks appetizers and no dessert. I will say there is very little options for GF person. There is GF pasta. The salads we had which was both!...

Aloha everyone, A month long business trip to Boston gave me the opportunity to visit the North End for some great Italian food. I chose Trattoria il Panino as a good, classy spot for a Friday-night, 12-person social/business dinner--principally based on reviews--but then I also asked among a few locals and got thumbs up all around. First off, the managers... More

Our waiter, Tino, provided us excellent service as well as suggesting the perfect menu items for us after telling him what we were interested in. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the lobster and shrimp in our dish were fresh and abundant! Tino made the experience so great, we returned again for the delicious food!

The food was fine. Not anything would rave about. Just fine. Waiter had to ask for bread to be delivered three times. Ordered a Rose wine but was served white - not sure what happened there(?). Water and wine glasses didn't seem clean. Nor did the ones on the table next to us when they reset it - covered with... 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.
