We visit Boston each fall, always eat here at least once. Great lunch menu…love the arugula, pear, fennel salad with chicken and prosciutto panini. Nice selection of wines by the glass, excellent service, reliably good food. Outdoor seating along the side of the building gives...privacy but still allows for people watching on Hanover Street.More

We stopped in for lunch when we first arrived in Boston. We were so hungry, and their menu did not disappoint. My husband and I both had the gnocchi with sausage, mushrooms, and tomatoes. It was delicious. We did not have alcohol but it looks...like they have a very nice wine list. And we were too full to get dessert, but it looks like they had nice options. The service was friendly, and it had a nice ambience. We would definitely go back.More

We went there to the roof top bar for a drink and after we saw all the meals coming out we stayed for dinner! I had a phenomenal eggplant parmesan and my husband had an equally delicious chicken parmesan. But the best part of the...evening was our server, Antonio. He was kind, patient and very good at his craft. We are so glad we happened onto this restaurant!More

I agree completely with the review titled “shockingly terrible”. The bread was terrible and so was the bruschetta. Worst bruschetta I’ve ever had. But the risotto and the penne with chicken and broccoli were truly shockingly bad. The entrees are $30+ so we paid a...lot of money for a truly terrible meal. When we told the server how bad the risotto was, her response was “do you want a box to take it home?”. Bizarre. We recently moved near the North End and will make it a point to never go back here.More

First, I have to preface that I have never written a review like this and I am not fussy about food. I had a friend visiting from NC, so I thought it would be cool to take her to Boston’s North End. Well, this was...certainly the wrong choice. We were not super hungry, so we ordered burrata, the main course to share and wine. I was also going to get a gift certificate for friends who were dog sitting for me. Needless to say, I changed my mind about that. Let’s start with the bread. They brought cold bread that tasted like it was purchased at a grocery store a day ago and just sliced up. The dipping oil, was exactly that, plain olive oil. No Parmesan cheese, no herbs, no spices, no garlic. So cold store bought bread with olive oil. Next was burrata. Small blob of cheese, very little balsamic and definitely not beefsteak tomatoes. There comes the best part, main course. Can’t remember exact name, but it was supposed to be chicken breast with prosciutto, mushrooms, Marsala sauce and homemade penne. They key word there is “supposed to be”. Chicken cutlets must have been previously frozen prepackaged type. What was supposed to be prosciutto, was cheap grocery store ham, not anything remotely close to prosciutto. It was cut in rectangle pieces. Sauce was some sort of sweet mess and, pasta… it needed another two minutes to even get to al dente and definitely was not homemade. So, so called Italian restaurant in North End that doesn’t know how to boil pasta!!! When we got the bill, the meal was $28 PLUS $9 for the raw pasta! The waitress said that pasta was extra! I will say the waitress was nice enough and I think felt bad, so I just paid the bill, because I am sure it wasn’t her fault. Skipped the gift certificate part, lol. Interestingly, I have been to this restaurant years ago, like 10 years ago and it was a whole different experience. Never again!!! Please, there are many other places in that area, save yourself your money and ruined experience.More

We made reservations online for this restaurant on a Wednesday evening. The Italian district gets crowded before the weekends so we went mid week. It was great service, accordion player entertained us, the food was amazing and we enjoyed the street seating outdoors. Would definitely...return.More

Charming with a variety of seating options: inside, outside in their gated courtyard or outside on the sidewalk, which is what we opted for. Mid afternoon, this side of the street was in shade. I intended to get pasta, but the lure of the chicken,...feta, artichoke, onions and maybe red peppers??? Itslian style pizza lured me. $15 and I will get two good sized meals out of it. My husband opted for build your own gluten free pizza. He came back with about w 1/3 of his thin crust, GF, pizza. Will go again!More

Amazing Italian restaurant in North End. Our waiter Rachid gave us options: a Ravioli Lobster/Shrimp dish that was fantastic! Accommodated by Bruschetta and a nice Chianti wine. Highly recommended!

There are lots of great options to eat Italian in Boston, and particularly on or right off Hanover Street in the eclectic North End, and Ristorante Fiore came recommended - and for a good reason. The service was superb, the treatment special and the food...very tasty. We tried different items and shard, and liked the primadora, salmon and carbonara. You just hav3 to try multiple places and items in the North End because each place seems to have some menu choices that are a bit bette than the other guys. It sure will be fun going back to Fiore and other places until we decide — if we can — on our favorites. Reservations are recommended, prices are very comparable with the neighbors, and it is definitely an Italian place.More

Went for lunch, dined on the covered patio under the heaters (which kicked out enough heat to keep us perfectly comfortable on a brisk November day). It’s actually refreshing to have professional and dedicated staff who seem to really care about the food and service....Waiter was great, taking time to explain the menu options, specials, and offering to customize anything. Salad was very fresh with grilled shrimp, sandwich was huge on fresh-baked bread. There are certainly many choices of good restaurants in the North End, but this is a standout.More
