Let's open a can of worms!! Best North End?

I lived in Boston in the mid 90's and I'm coming back in a couple weeks for 5 days in the North End!! What do you guys have for me? I can do w/o a bunch of marinara and mozz on some kind of breaded meat! I used to love Antico Forno, or at least one of the servers and Terra Mia!! P.S. Save your dessert choices! I'm heading to Cafe Vittoria for the best Tiramisu EVER!!!!

  1. Neptune Oyster or Taranta would be my votes. I admittedly don't spend too much time in the North End but when I do, it's to visit one of these two spots.

    1. Vinoteca di Monica and Prezza

      I also like Lucca but I'm not sure it's up there with these two or Neptune and Taranta.

      1. My favorites are Bricco and Taranta. I try others, but nothing seems to measure up.

        1. Skip the NE and go to Rino's in Eastie.

              I was kinda hoping that wore off, I guess it totally ruined that place, I'll have to retreat back to Vinny's.

          2. I like Rabia's on Salem Street. Nice mix of Southern Italian, Northern Italian, and Mediterranean fare.

              Taranta and Rabbia's are both really good and don't think you'll be disappointed with either of those.
