    CASH ONLY and will only seat parties when the entire party is available (seats 20 only). The Fra Diavlo is awesome as is the Squid ink Aligo Oglio. You will not be disappointed with either choices.

    During the weekday, getting here before 5:30 will be fine for a party of 2. Party of 4 will depend on your luck. We didn't have to wait but it's worth a 2 hour wait! Clams w linguine and black ink FTW

    Come on weekdays for an early dinner or very late lunch, and you won't have to wait. Service is a bit gruff, but it only adds to the restaurant's hole-in-the-wall charm. Amazing food!

    This family-owned, no-thrills restaurant serves whatever came in fresh within the last 24 hours. Andrew ate skate, served with stone clams, on the half shell, and pasta made with flour and squid ink.

    I adore this place. Try the black pasta with sautéed calamari and garlic or the fra diavolo. Come with an empty stomach and don't arrange anything for after.

    With seating for just 20 & a kitchen in the dining area, the restaurant guarantees patrons an intimate culinary experience. Try the shrimp and scallops, calamari salad, or homemade squid ink pasta. Read more

    My favorite place in the North End. Shrimp linguine with red sauce is my preferred dish, here. Big succulent shrimp, perfectly cooked al dente pasta, topped with a great flavorful marinara.

    Park at the Parcel 7 garage at Hanover & Surface. 5 mins walk and 3 hours validated parking for $1!! Don't go above 3 hours though. And get the black ink pasta w/ aglio olio YUM.

    <3 the monkfish marsala and the seared tuna. Order the calamari scampi, and use the bread to sop up the delectable juice. Also, Max was a wonderful host, waiter, and all around nice guy.
