Trattoria Il Panino is the kind of place that one would expect to find along the Amalfi Coast. It is a warm, friendly, unpretentious and a food-focused environment. From the casual and positive energy of the atmosphere and waitstaff, to the serious and professional energy of the kitchen, the front
and back of the house form a desirable marriage. The entrance on 260 Hanover street has a full liquor license.

    Zucchini blossoms are the best! Lasagna was delicious and my daughter loved the pesto pasta served in a skillet.

    Always great food! Hits the spot every time. Service at the table is great, although the hostesses are pretty curt. There are some really weird tables in the basement but that’s the norm for them! Love this place, it’s a go-to.

    Very authentic experience and the food was very well cooked. Pasta was on point and flavors were a good meld. The charcuterie board was 3 out of 5 stars but still not terrible. Bring your appetite because you’ll want to try it all. Piero was our cameriere and helped us know where to go in Italy when we visit.

    The original restaurant has always been a go to for us over many years. Our recent visit was ok. Nice vibe and friendly service. Appetizers were great but main dishes, especially the chicken parm was a total disappointment. Felt like it was pre cooked and was tough and dry.

    Nice Italian food. Lots of action with tables turning over quickly. No coffee or dessert which was disappointing. It’s a great place to go if you want good food fast but not conducive for a quiet or slow paced dinner.

    I was taken to a weird back section that had no ambience, uncomfortable wooden chairs, and right next to the kitchen where workers were scurrying back and forth. When I made my reservation I expected to be seated in the nice seating advertised, not tossed in a random room packed like sardines. There was maybe a foot of space between tables. When I go to the North End or any restaurant, I can never finish my food. I finished my pasta and was still hungry. My meal was around thirty dollars, I expect to at least get enough of it to become full. Carmelina’s was similar price range with better ambience and value. La Summa is my personal favorite restaurant in this area. I would suggest either of those over this place. They give an adequate amount of food. For reference, I am 5’2” and 120 pounds. I don’t eat a lot. From Cheesecake Factory, Carmelina’s, La Summa, or any other restaurant, I usually have half of my pasta left as leftovers. This is the only restaurant I’ve been able to finish my plate not even full.

    We ordered the calamari to start and it was super tough to chew. My dish was the bolonaisse and it was not that good and it was only lukewarm when served. My partner had the pesto dish and she said that she had better elsewhere.

    We asked for a quiet table on our reservation but were seated in the bar beside a group of very loud people. We asked for a quieter table and we're immediately granted a great table in front window in the dining room. Started with a very good calamari and shrimp appetizer but disappointed with the small portions for the price. Ceasor salad was good and fresh. The pasta in a lamb, beef and pork ragu was good and rich but most of the meat had deteriorated. Our server was attentive with a smile. Overall, we prefer their sister restaurant Bricco across the street.

    Food and service was great but won’t return because they do not offer coffee. The owner owns the gelato cafe next door and forces everyone to go there for coffee. We enjoy an espresso and dessert after our meal and would prefer not to leave and find another establishment after dinner

    Trattoria IlPanino is consistently one of my favorite North End restaurants. Their Mushroom ravioli are the best anywhere. Meatballs are fantastic. Great service, wine list, cocktails. Had Sunday dinner on the way to the airport. I can’t say enough.

    Excellent food and wait staff, unexceptionally long wait times even with reservations and extremely crowded. Had to wait for an hour after the reservation time to get a table and the front of house wouldn't give anything more than "a few more minutes" whenever asked and made us wait for an hour before we could be seated even if we came in 5 minutes early.

    One of our staples.not the greatest experience tonight. Service was a little slow yet we felt rushed. Typical for a Saturday in the North End I guess. Husband asked if he could still get penne vodka chicken since it's not on the menu anymore. They said of course. It came with a chicken cutlet (breaded / fried) on a plate on the side. Maybe just communication wasn't clear. It used to be grilled chicken cut up in the pan with the pasta. overall it was still good, it was more about feeling rushed and slow service.
