Boston’s North End Restaurants
What are your favorite North End Restaurants?
The North End is Boston’s oldest Neighborhood. A one-square-mile waterfront community close to Faneuil Hall, The Freedom Trail, and The Old North Church. It isn’t dubbed Boston’s “Little Italy” by accident.
Top Picks for North End Restaurants
Some say the North End is THE place to eat in Boston. We know there are many great establishments to choose from all over the city, but our “Little Italy” does have an amazing selection of restaurants.
There are over 100 restaurants, bakeries, and cafes to choose from and most of them are Italian. No matter what you are craving, you are sure to find something here you will love.
Hanover Street is the main street in the North End. It’s a good place to start. Sip espresso, enjoy some gelato, shop at boutiques, check out a bakery…the possibilities are endless.
After that, venture out onto some side streets and be sure to check out Salem Street, which runs parallel to Hanover. Discover a butcher, fish markets, flower shops, more bakeries, don’t forget the liquor stores, and much more.
Here is a list of a few of our favorite North End Restaurants:
