North End Reviews

2 reviews
Homey and comfortable with a community vibe - the North End is a magnificent neighborhood in Boston. Great food options (largely Italian, but plenty of others), beautiful brownstone buildings, and friendly people everywhere. Easy access to Logan Airport, and other awesome neighborhoods (e.g., South End, Seaport, Charlestown). More affordable than South End - some of the buildings are older, so you have to be a little discerning, but overall great experience.

Historic and lively. This part of town is a historic gold mine, where the lanterns were hung and where the founding father's met to plan our great country. Best Italian food you will ever have. Many restaurants in this neighborhood have been open for decades and with one bite you'll know why. Whether you want to walk through history or enjoy a night out, it can't get better than this.
