Best of Boston 2010: Neighborhood Restaurant, North End
319 Hanover St.
Boston, Massachusetts 02113
With just eight tiny tables, this isn' exactly a place to spread out. But in exchange for elbow room, diners get super service from owner Siobhan Carew, gratis bites from the kitchen, and the most delicious antipasto platter in the North End. The seafood entrées, like a stellar zuppa di pesce, make it easy to forgive Pomodoro for its other inconvenience: It's cash only. RUNNER-UP Trattoria di Monica
