LA summa is tucked away in a quiet side street in North end and when we came in for a late lunch (or early dinner) the place was almost deserted - which was fine by us. We were served graciously by an aging gentleman. The...More

The wait was really not that long but this was probably one of the best meals I have had. From the wine selection to the menu. There were 4 of us traveling on the East Coast and this was our first dinner. We all thought...More

I had read so many restaurant reviews before going to Boston, then could not find my "list" when actually in the North End, Ugghh. For whatever reason I remembered this one had been mentioned when we passed by. Too Bad. The décor and lighting is...More

If you are in Boston's north end you have to eat here. It is worth the wait, we had to wait almost an hour, but once you are in the service is impecable! The pasta is very tender and the meal is succulent.

Disappointed the third time around. I've been to this place a couple of times before and liked it more previously. It tries to be authentic Italian (vs American Italian) but once you see Caesar salad on the menu you know it can't be THAT authentic....More

Went here based on a good review by Frommer's which is usually pretty good with their picks but not this time. We arrived at 12:15 for lunch on a Friday and there was no one there. An older woman in the rear of the restaurant...More

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
