Decent while not outrgarous $$

I am looking for a decent Italian place in the North End to go for dinner on Saturday evening. I will be attending wicked w/ my girlfriend after which we would like to go to the N. End and have some good italian food. Based on many review i have seen here and elsewhere our original plan of going to Strega is not a great idea. I am looking simply for good italian at a resonable price (where if possible I can make a reservation). If there is nothing that meets my criteria that comes to mind we are open to suggestions for other good food around the theatre district or N. End with a decent selection of non-meat dishes its worth a shot.

Thanks for any and all suggestions

      I think that Antico Forno fits the bill. I don't find them to be over the top expensive. Their food is excellent and very authentic, yet simple and casual at the same time!

        Ristorante Euno is very friendly, tasty and reasonably priced.

          Some of my favorite restaurants in the North End that are also reasonable include:

          Antico Forno (Salem Street)
          Al Dente (Salem Street)
          Pagliuca's (Parmenter Street)
          Massimino's (Endicott Street)
          La Summa (Fleet Street)
          and, of course, there's always Pizzeria Regina...

            I would not recommend strega. Tried it awhile back out of curiosity, and it turned out to be a big disappointment. Overpriced, noisy, slow and the food was only ok. Some of the highest wine prices I've seen at ANY Boston restaurant - and they were not high-end wines, just highly marked-up ones. Similar bottles at other North End places would be considerably less $$$. A basic Italian red was ~ $90.

              Antico Forno is always good.

              I also love pomodoro...it's also very romantic. I think they take reservations, but cash only.
