Fodor's Expert Review Daily Catch

$$ The North End Seafood Fodor's Choice

You've just got to love this shoebox-size place—for the noise, the intimacy, the complete absence of pretense, and, above all, the food, which proved so popular, it spawned two other locations (one in Brookline and another in Boston's Seaport area). With garlic and olive oil forming the foundation for almost every dish, this cheerful, bustling spot specializes in calamari, black squid-ink pastas, and linguine with clam sauce, all served in the skillets in which they were cooked, hot from the stove. Compact and brightly lighted, this storefront restaurant has been a local staple for more than 40 years and for good reason.
