I LOVE this restaurant!
My wife and I have gone here to celebrate our anniversary when we were dating. It’s also where we went the night I proposed to her (that’s another whole story). It’s usually a very quiet restaurant and if you get in fairly early you have no problem getting a table. The wait staff is attentive but not intrusive and they make great suggestions if you’re not sure what to choose.
I have had Gnocchi al Pomodoro, Tortellini Quattro Formaggi, and the Gnocchi al Pesto so far (that I can remember). The gnocchi are always delicious and melt in your mouth with the creamy pesto. Pair any of these with a nice glass of red wine and it’s a small taste of heaven. You won’t want to leave yourself any leftover as the food tastes THAT good.

After you’re stuffed to the gills you’re going to need to take a walk and make some room for dessert as Modern and Mike’s pastries are both just down the street (I’m a Mike’s Pastry guy myself but I haven’t tried anything from Modern yet so I can’t say Mike’s is better). Grab yourself a latte or cappuccino at Cafe Pompeii and enjoy. A night out in the North End that isn’t too expensive and is absolutely something you’ll want to do over and over again.
