Area is great to walk through and is jam packed with restaurants which all look amazing and you would be hard choosing. I think you may need to reserve in some or be prepared to wait as they were all so busy. Great vibe and...More

I love everything about the north end, especially the food. I’m a sucker for Italian pastries. Lots to see and do, definitely wear comfortable shoes.

Stayed in the neighbourhood at AirBnB, great area for eating, drinking and meandering! Famous Mikes Pastry and Modern Pastry are always lined up as is Neptune’s Oysters and most of the Italian restaurants.

Fun to walk through. The streets are narrow and wind around. The buildings are old and there are shops and restaurants everywhere.

Read great reviews of local/popular restaurants (catch of the day, bakery across the street from them, Neptune Oyster to be exact) they are very expensive and just rush you out...for the price I am paying this should not have happened. The seafood was not out...More

Place is tightly packed but easily maneuver around to good foods and bakeries. Carry cash as many bakeries take cash only.

If you like Italian food, you're in the best place, visit Mother Anna's, magnify Lasagna and then try a cannoli at Mike's Pastry.

Boston's North End is a truly unique experience. The most notable characteristic is the Italian atmosphere and traditional Italian cuisine, as experienced in many Italian restaurants. Periodic Roman Catholic festivals add to the Italian atmosphere. American history is evidenced by such sights as the Old...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

I love the Harborside Inn, as it's a quick walk over there and a great location.
