“We had such a wonderful lunch here. While exploring the North End, we just wandered in to Trattoria Il Panino without knowing much about it, and we’re so glad we did! The food was outstanding. We ordered the cacio e pepe, the lasagna of the day (beef lasagna), and the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp. Everything the was delicious! Our waiter was also very friendly and super helpful. We might have happened upon this restaurant spontaneously, but next time I’ll be making a very intentional effort to come back!”

Spent a great weekend on the north side with a good friend and we found this gem on our last day. Kind of glad we did find it then or we would’ve ended up eating here every day and not tried anything else. Food was amazing, Vince was great , Maria the manager is a personality and did I mention the food??  Risotto special was to die for and lobster fra diavolo just killed it.

Probably the only place I’ve been to EVER where they bring the whole pan to you. Love the setup of the place. Great to take families, dates, or friends to enjoy some good Italian food! This is probably my favorite in the North End because of how its a healthy medium between the north end hype and your regular Italian place. It’s a place you can depend on for last minute decisions when someone is in town. Very dependable!

The food is amazing. I can’t wait to go back. I’ve never had raviolis as tasty as the ones they serve. The gnocchi was to die for. I hope they have one in LA but this place made the Boston trip so worth it.

So the impetus for this review was mainly because I was eating with the world’s pickiest eater. So the only thing we could’ve ordered was lasagne that was on her ‘yes’ list, and that is exactly what we ordered. Oh my goodness, it arrived and we all were ENTHRALLED and I mean truly mesmerized by a plate of the most delicious lasagne I have ever encountered. So my picky friend sat in ecstasy with a glazed over look in her eye and sat for the rest of the meal in the most blissful state of food coma. So overall, I would really recommend Trattoria Il Panino to anyone traveling with people who are very picky/if you want to eat the best lasagne of your entire life.

In terms of the ambiance of the restaurant the waiter was super attentive and gave us good recommendations. The chicken parmesan was also delicious, but the lasagne stole the show.
