Go for the food not for the experience – If you're a tourist and you're going to Boston's North End for the first time I wouldn't go here. Although the food at La Famiglia Georgio's may be a bit better, and more appropriately priced than the restaurants on touristy Hanover street, you miss out in the ambience and people watching.
La Famiglia's is a great middle-of-the-week restaurant for locals. The food is great, but the ambience and the service are no where to be found. The dining room has bad acoustics and can get very loud and the servers could care less if you'd like more bread or need a new fork.
I had the linguni with the Fra Diavolo sauce. It was wonderful. The pasta tastes homemade. The portions are enormous. The meatballs are like your Mom's. The food makes up for where this restaurant lacks in other areas.
One of the best – This is the only place I eat in the North End. It is like sitting in your grandmothers house. Simple tables and service, wine served in juice glasses. The portions are huge and the prices are cheap. The food is great. A very nice place to bring the whole fam. DON"T BE FOOLED BY THE SIMPLE APEARENCE
tremendous – great original italian food no foo foo food great quality, great price. the food you know! lasagnas, chicken and veal dishes gnocchi, ravioli pizza
prices are more in the 10-15 dollar range
good service just like my grandmothers house on sunday mornings "ask for auntie" she'll take good care of you
Best Italian Food in Boston – You'd never know from the unassuming exterior that this place has the best Italian food not only in the North End, but the whole city. Their gnocchi is especially good, as is the chicken marsala. Service can get rather slow on a busy night, but its worth the wait.
Si! Si! – Great flavor, fresh ingredients, real Italian cooking. Small family restaurant, can't get any better!
The Family is Great! – Awesome! "The family" has the best deals intown for lunch! Awesome food, I'd eat there every day if I could. Get the sampler, you CAN'T go wrong!
Best Deal In Town – Our first choice when in Boston!! No trip to Boston is complete without a meal at La Famiglia's topped off by pastries from Mike's.
Excelente' – I love this place! I've been there so many times... I have a hard time trying other resturants. Not only do they have a large selection on their menue, but their prices are the best in the neighborhood! Also, the portions are great... if you like to eat "big," this is the place to go!
If you're hungry...... – If you're hungry, go to La Famiglia! The portions are extremely generous! The menu had all my favorites and then some. I think they should stop presenting 5 green olives in the wooden salad bowl with light, tasteless oil at the beginning of the meal. My veal was cooked to perfection. The service could have been a bit more efficient as there were many tables open, but none of them cleaned off.
