Where to eat and what to order in Boston’s North End

We know, we know: The North End is packed with delicious places to twirl pasta and sip wine. The biggest challenge when visiting — besides finding parking — is deciding where to feast. Luckily, you have this list, where you’ll find elegant hideaways, noisy trattorias, and (of course) an abundance of incredible pizza.

Linguine al frutti di mare from Antico Forno.

ANTICO FORNO

93 Salem Street, Boston, 617-723-6733, anticofornoboston.com

With brick walls, soft lighting, and a roaring oven, this rustic neighborhood staple on Salem Street has sweet service (our server talked superheroes with a 5-year-old guest) and sweeter prices, with big portions to boot. Almost anything finished in that signature wood-burning brick oven is a hit, including crackly Neapolitan pizzas with homemade mozzarella and a husky osso buco with carrots and celery, the ideal antidote to a dreary winter.

Make Sure to Try: The homemade rigatoni with Italian sausage and sweet onions, topped with ricotta cheese and blasted in the oven. A hearty $13 lunch portion will leave you plenty for dinner.
