The opening and closing of the entry door made for a chilly eating environment. The waiter never came around to refill water. I had to flag him down. Bread was cold and tough. We were just NOT impressed. The food was good and that's

Cons: FOOD, SERVICE, STOLE OUR MONEY

I went to Saraceno last week and it was awesome. It looks so small from the outside; little does one know that they have seating downstairs and also on two floors above the restaurant next door! The hostess took us up a flight of stairs

I have a foot in the 5 star and in the 1 star camp. The food here is good, let?s face it. I have eaten here twice, once it was terrific , the waiter was great and the food more than passable and the value was good. Will I ever go there

Ristorante Seraceno (ie the tunnel restaurant or knife, fork, spoon place) has very rarely let me down. The biggest mistake people make when entering a restaurant is judging souly based on bread. After spending 6 months living in Italy, i

Pros: Distinguishing back rooms

Cons: no parking

As we entered, there were two waiters staying about 5 feet from us, and not serving customer, but doing some clean up at vacant tables. Nevertheless, we stood there for about a minute, and even then the waiter only paid us some attention

Cons: Rude waiters, very limited space

The waitress at this restaurant, who we have had the two times we've gone there, is the rudest waitress I have ever had. She literally rolled her eyes at very simple requests. The food is okay, but the waitress will ruin your experience.

We ate there this past weekend! Do yourself a BIG favor - pass right by it! The place was a "factory" turning people around with "canned" and "americanized" dishes of virtual slop. I KNOW ITALIAN FOOD! The garbage (in my opinion) they

Pros: still thinking to come up with one

Cons: everything

Don't bother going unless you don't know any better! Food is mediocre and not truly Italian. Service is fair or worse. Skip the Italian antipasto unless you are expecting an escarole salad! Bring your own Italian bread - they don't kinow

We went looking for a good North End restaurant without the noise - a perfect place to meet and dine with friends that we have not seen in a great while. The atmosphere was very Mediterranean; make sure you ask to sit upstairs, even though

Usually we always know exactly where we are going in the North end but we decided to head in last minute with no reservations. We walked by and saw the restaurant was busy so we headed in. We were seated in the basement and it smelled old

Wonderful restaurant with exceptional food and service. We were there on a Friday night. Stepped in without reservations and were seated immediately in the beautiful and romantic basement. We were not rushed at any time during our meal.

My wife and I have been dining at Saraceno's at least once per year for about 17 years. In my opinion, it's one of the best values in the North End. The food and service is always right on the money.

I was very excited about going to this restaurant for our anniversary, but I was sorely disappointed. The waitress did not speak English well, and as a result did not get our order correct. We ordered the tomatoes & mozz, but were instead

Ristorante Saracino is a great place to eat in the North End. Though small with separate eaqting areas, it is cozy and giives one a good feeling of being in an Italian restaurant as close as one can come to it outside of Italy. The food is

I had never eaten in the North End prior to my visit to Saraceno's. Everything was better than I anticipated. The red sauce left me craving more for months afterwards and the service was impeccable.

My boyfriend and I have gone to Saraceno every year for Valentine's Day. What a great date to go. They decorate each of the dining rooms with balloons, candles and lovely flowers, yet it is done tastefully and is not gawdy. The food is
