Best Italian Restaurant in North End

I only have one night in Boston and have decided on dining in the North End. I am looking for a good, authentic Italian restaurant but am having trouble deciding. Any suggestions?

  1. My favorite in the North End is Prezza. Great wood-grilled meats and house made pastas. Also pretty solid bartending for the North end.

    1. Do yourself a favor and go to Rino's in Eastie, worth the diversion and a short ride from the NE.

        But almost impossible to get into.

      2. Daily Catch, if you like seafood.

                For old school red sauce in the North End there are about 75 restaurants all with pretty much the same menu and more or less hit or miss on any specific night. I lived in the NE for about 10 years and tried pretty much every restaurant, one night the place is great, the next night sucks. That being said for red sauce my go to's are Locontes, Antico Forno and Massiminos. For a slightly different spin Maurizios can be very good.
