Neptune Oyster Review

This piccolo oyster bar, the first of its kind in the neighborhood, has only 22 chairs, but the long marble bar adorned with mirrors has extra seating for 15 more patrons, who can watch the oyster shuckers deftly undo handfuls of bivalves to savor by the dozen or on a plateau di frutti di mare, a gleaming tower of oysters and other raw-bar items piled over ice that you can order from the slip of paper they pass out listing each day's crustacean options. Dishes change seasonally, but a couple of year-round favorites include the North End Cioppino (fish stew) and the lobster roll that, hot or cold, overflows with meat. Service is prompt even when it gets busy (as it is most of the time). Go early to avoid a long wait.

    Excellent little charming seafood restaurant

    This restaurant is tiny so you don't want to go at a popular time. Excellent quality raw bar and delicious interesting seafoood dishes. Excellent wine list as well. Charming atmosphere but be prepared for it being loud. Not particularly Italian although it is Italian and in the North End.

    Best seafood spot in Boston

    The best place in Boston to get seafood, has great chowder as well as hot or cold lobster rolls. Plenty of wine and beer options to go with the food. Smallish space but has a friendly, casual feel. Not a bargain seafood shack in decor or prices, but the finest option in Boston for fishy goodness.
