North End Restaurant Poll

Let's say you were planning to eat 3 times at the North End while in town and you like good sized portions and moderate prices.

What 3 Italian restaurants would you choose?

La Summa, Giacomo's and then probably Massimino's.

I favor the Southern Italian dishes so my Top 3 would be:

1. Lo Conte's

2. Assagio

3. Giacomo's

I'd say:

La Summa

Daily Catch


Giacomo's can substitute for Daily Catch, if you are not a fan of calamari. That's most of what's on the Catch's menu.

If you like some more Northern-Italian food, substitute Antico Forno for Massiminos. Antico Forno is Tuscan-style, with a wood fired oven, and they do a great job with baked dishes and roasted meats.

I have to agree in the same exact order as previously posted here. All these 3 restaurants are absolute gems. If you want good sized portions with moderate prices? Then any one of these above mentioned should be your pick. I've been to all three a few times now and there's no question about it, hands down, they're definitely winners these days, in my book!

I like Antico Forno (especially their pizza and gnocchi), and recently had my first meal at La Summa. Won't be my last.

Since this is a poll.... what do you all think of Il Panino Express? I personally would kill (okay maybe not kill, maybe just maim) to have a place like this in my area. It's quick and fast Italian food.... but I think the selection of freshly made paninis is nothing short of deliciousness at its best.
