north end italian restaurant - authentic - for lunch

  • l

okay chowhounds, I am looking for the real thing here- none of this breaded eggplant and soggy garlic bread and thick sauce - where in the north end is there an italian restaurant that is small, cozy, not too expensive, that serves casual, authentic, light italian fare that would be good for lunch? I mean, I am looking for sauce like they have in Italy - does this exist in the north end?

Please share if you know of anything.

    Last year some friends took me to Limoncello in the North End. It had just opened up. I believe some fellow in Italy won the lottery and opened up the restaurant in Boston. My Slow Food chowhounds (one being from Istria {great food place} though now living in Boston) and I had very nice food there.

    Someone else posted about this restaurant earlier in the year. I hope this link works.

      FYI- Maurizio was a waiter for many years at Saraceno on Hanover St. One scratch ticket later, he's a restaurant owner! Nice guy and a good choice.
