"The best Hanover alternative"

I discovered North Street the way most people do-I was frustrated with the insane waits at all the incredible Italian places on Hanover St. and decided to explore off the beaten path. Turns out that North St. in the North End boasts some amazing restaurants-Limoncello, Ricardo's, and the best restaurant in the North End, Carmen. Couple it with the fact that some great history sites, including the Old North Church and Paul Revere's house, are only steps away, and North St. is an experience in and of itself!

"busy street in historic North End"

North Street is a somewhat busy street that runs from downtown Boston through the historic North End. I mostly visited the street walking in the North End area. North St. cuts through Boston's little Italy, so there are many great little authentic Italian restaurants and bakeries in the area. I loved Limoncello Ristorante, which is near the Paul Revere house. This is a great street to walk up and down and enjoy the history and a nice Italian lunch or dinner.
