    Best Hidden Gem in North End!

    If you want to get out of the tourist craziness in the North End, turn onto Fleet St., right off Hanover...to find La Summa. This is real homemade Italian - not haute cuisine but a very personal experience with authentic cuisine in a small, candlelit dining room. I have been dining here for both lunch and dinner for about the last seven years, and it's always a great treat....and I am a native Bostonian, so I have had lots of good Italian food in my own backyard...but La Summa is actually an experience, not just the food. The sauces are all fresh and homemade, same with the pasta, and everything on the menu. The meatballs are fantastic, same with the homemade sausage, too. After a quiet dinner in this intimate place, with everything fresh and always homemade, you just leave feeling wonderful, as though you have escaped from the world for a little while to relax and really dine...we love it here, and we always come back! It is truly personal, not just great food. I highly recommend La Summa. It's a good value, too.

    I live in the North End, and I LOVE this place!

    I'm almost don't want to write this review because I like keeping this place a secret. I live in the North End in Boston and I have tried many many restaurants. This place, by far, is my favorite for a number of reasons: 1) Food is incredible: I highly recommend the muscles in red sauce (I contemplated drinking leftover sauce directly from the bowl). I also love the gnocchi, and my boyfriend loves the chicken parm and the pasta with sausage and brocoli rabe. 2) Nice, large pour of wine by the glass 3) Rarely any wait time, or crowds. This place is not particularly well known, so you don't feel shoved into a tiny table with people pushing past you while trying to enjoy your dinner. One thing I would say is that the decor could use updating (I would place the book shelf in the front somewhere else, and change some of the wall art; it's a bit tacky). Also, the music is a little strange. I still come back here whenever anyone is visiting me in the city or on my anniversary! It really is my favorite place in the North End!

    Best north end gem

    Food is fantastic, service is great, and you get what you pay for. My wife and I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Don't waste your time/money on touristy places.

    Great value, nice atmosphere

    We were looking for a North End restaurant that wasn't too pricey for a party of seven on a Saturday night. The staff was very accommodating, considering it took over half an hour for our entire party to arrive. The food and wine were terrific and reasonably priced. Portions were large. We will certainly return to this little gem.

    Sat evening, Easter weekend 2009

    Nice quiet neighborhood atmosphere, located at block from North Sq and easy walking distance from downtown Boston. The arancini starter and main courses were delicious. The service was very friendly and prompt. A great place to go for a tasty Italian meal at a reasonable price.

    Hidden Gem

    This place is cozy and wonderful. We've always had terrific service and often bring out-of-town guests here. It's our go-to spot in the North End. I can't wait to go again this weekend!
