Best Hole in the Wall Little Italy

I'm looking to take my girlfriend (we are both new to the city) to a small romantic place in Little Italy that's more of a "good find" then a big place. I like red sauce Italian. Any suggestions?

  1. There is no Little Italy in Boston. A search for the North End will garner many thoughtful posts. I especially love bachslunch's review of that neighborhood.

    1. You asked about this in a different thread a few days ago:
      There are some good suggestions there, and some searching the board will give you many additional pointers. The search term you want is "North End", not "Little Italy"; if you want to narrow things down further you can add "red sauce".

        1. Paglicua's on Parmenter Street is a good option if you're looking for a cozy little spot in the North End. Actually, it's not the most romantic place in the world, but it has some character and is definitely a find. Good pasta, veal, etc.

          1. I like Antico Forno on Salem next to the hardware store. Not the most romantic, but really good food. Try pretty much anything from the wood fired brick oven.
