Italian Best Picks in the North End?
My Brother's comming into town for a couple of nights and I want to show him some good Italian. We've been to Mama Maria (3 North Square) and loved it. Our old, modest favorite, however, is Bella Vista on Hanover St. Lucia (owner/manager) has been so nice to us and her tortellini alfredo is out of this world. Outstanding noodles and incredible, rich sauce. Go on Friday or Saturday nights when the best chef is in. Very reasonable prices.
I want to know:
A) Your favorite Italian dinner or appatizer spot in the North End
B) The must order dish(es) at that place
Thanks so much!
Last time my brother was in town we stopped at three places. The idea is to find the best dishes at several, sample them all, and compare (We call this the "good people, good food and lots of it" principle ha). We'll be sure to post the results. Thanks Again.
Indeed bachslunch's post is still germane. Seeing as you have prior experience in the NE, doing a search on "North End" will bring up tons of posts which will allow you to mach your tastes with those of other posters. I like the oven baked dishes of Antico Forno, my wife's favorite is Giacamos' and I popped the question at Carmen.
