This place truly does have he North End flavor that you get at most places in Boston's North End, though it's conveniently located on the South Shore just off of exit 9 on Rt 3. I've tried many of their dishes - never disappointed!

We came in based on the distance from our hotel and were glad we did. My son loved the chicken fingers and my husband said the veal parmesan was the best he's had in years.
