North Shore Italian - Need Suggestions

AM I missing something..???.yes! Like where to get good Italian chow on the North Shore. The North Shore being the towns along the shore E of Rt1/I 95 and 128 N up to Gloucester.
I don't travel to that area often, but the closest thing I know to you that is really good and worth the drive (we come from the South Shore) is Theresa's Italian Eatery in Middleton. The veal and eggplant parm combo is delicious with the homemade fusili. Wish I could jump in the car right now just thinking about it.
In Salem, NH Ralphies on rte 28 is very good, La Tratoria on Main St. in Gloucester is also good and they have a coupon in udine4less.com. IMO, for the best, try Rino's in.
Bella Verona is Salem is excellent, next to the Hawthorne Hotel. They also have a sister restaurant in Beverly Trattoria Bella Mia. In Gloucester, La Trattoria & Pizzeria on Main Street is also one of our favorites.
218 Cabot St, Beverly, MA 01915
107 Essex St, Salem, MA 01970
Anyone been to Artichokes in Wakefield?
I'm meeting some people there on Thursday and have note heard much about this place recently.
Any insight is appreciated.
I recommend Sixty2onWharf in Salem for great Italian. It's not inexpensive, but it's terrific. I second Bella Verona and Antique Table, and I continue to hear good things about Grapevine in Salem, although I haven't been for a few years. I also like Caffe Italia in Marblehead very much. For a full review with pics and prices of Sixty2, Bella Verona, Antique Table, and Caffe Italia, see our blog (search on the name of the restaurant).
I would suggest I Pazzi in Danvers Square. Good solid, moderately priced Italian.Google it for reviews. Here's the address:
