Go to Bova’s for pastries or any kind of Italian deli lunch! Skip mikes. We learned this from the locals & had to go back 3 times just to keep trying more.

Any particular restaurant recommendations? Was looking at mamma Maria for Italian but open to suggestions. Also looking for good brunch spot ideas as well

I think most of the ones in the north end are good, check reviews online to make sure. But I have had good experiences at trattoria il panini and nico

Hit up some row 34, modern and mikes and bovas, Neptune oyster, mike and patty’s, Myers+Chang, and saltie girl. Boston was amazing, thx to all for the recs

@OP The Friendly Toast is brunch. I’ve only ever been to the one in Cambridge, but there is one in Boston as well

Visited in the summer and went to daily catch in North end for some Italian w lots of seafood. cash only!

For pastries / coffee in the North End, Cafe Vittoria is a must. Way better than Mikes or Bovas. Also Friendly Toast is fine but Zaftigs or Regal Beagle in Coolidge Corner are much better (though farther from downtown)

If you have to travel during COVID, it was helpful to have CLEAR. Less physical contact and don’t have to take off your mask. To confirm your identity stand in front of the screen to scan your eyes (with your mask on) and then scan your ticket with your phone.
