Looking for Casual North End Italian That I Haven't Tried Yet

I've been to:
Have I run out of casual, reasonably priced Italian restaurants in the North End, or are there any I still haven't hit yet? If there are still a few, are they any good? Thanks!
I don't see LaGalleria 33 on that list. Give them a try, the owners try so hard and are very welcoming, the food is good, and the tables are nicley spaced. I believe they have a website now. Prices range from $15 to around $36.
You've hit most of the places I might suggest (I've been to Massimino, Pagliuca, Mother Anna, and Rabia recently for lunch, with Massimino the clear favorite -- the eggplant, garlic and oil antipasto was stunning).
Not extraordinary but decent, and new to me, was Emedio's, at the far end of Hanover St. Mangia Mangia is just a counter-service lunch spot, but quite worthwhile for its soups and Parmigiana subs (veal, chicken, eggplant).
One entry on my list of places that my native North End buddy recommends for casual Italian-American is Ricardo's on North Street. I haven't been yet.
