North End Italian - Help us choose
We'll be in Boston on Tuesday, July 9 and I've looked over some posts on Italian and came up with this list:
- Piccolo Nido
- Piccolo Venezia
It's the first day of our New England vacation so we're looking for a pleasant dining experience - good food/service, romantic, and not too noisy or crowded. Do I need to make a reservation at any of these places?
I'm leaning towards Euno, Piccola Venezia, or Limoncello.
stay away from Piccolo Venezia - noisy and not very interesting food. Prezza is very nice but trendy and busy and you will need a reservation. Piccolo Nido is a very good alternative. Small and owner is very nice and accomodating - A little more romantic than some of the others. Have not been to Limoncello but heard good things. Marcuccio's is great too. Leave time for a nice long walk after dinner. Enjoy.
My favorite North End place is not on your list. It's Marcuccio's, a high end place with lots of very strong flavors. Sage is also wonderful. It's expensive also, with cooking that is deceptive; it seems very simple, but it's perfect and surprisingly memorable quite a while later.
