A Neighborhood Guide to Boston's North End

Located northeast of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and adjacent to Boston Harbor, Boston’s North End is unofficially known as the city’s Little Italy. The North End is a miniscule neighborhood, running one-square-mile from the water, on its eastern boundary, to Government Center, on the southwestern side. The neighborhood has developed a reputation for Italian heritage, although the North End has boasted a complex network of immigrant residents since the 1600s. Its modern association, however, has been forged by over 100 restaurants, bakeries, salumerias, cafés, and storefronts that call the North End home. The neighborhood, which has an imminently walkable feel and draws visitors from all over the city, is also Boston’s oldest residential area, dating back to the 17th century. “The North End is probably the greatest inner-city community in the country and probably the greatest Italian community in the country,” says Frank DePasquale, who has lived in the area since he emigrated at age 4, from a small town under Mount Vesuvius near the Amalfi Coast. DePasquale currently owns eight restaurants in the neighborhood: Bricco Ristorante & Enoteca, Mare, Aquapazza, Bricco Panetteria, Trattoria il Panino, Bricco Salumeria, Quattro, and Dolce. He attributes the North End’s importance to a number of factors: its location in the center of Boston; its historical significance, sitting right on the storied Freedom Trail; and even walking-distance proximity to the TD Garden (still called the Boston Garden by people who grew up in and around Massachusetts), where both the Bruins and Celtics play.

Frequently asked questions
How does DoorDash work?

DoorDash connects you with the best nearby restaurants. Use the DoorDash website or app to browse eligible restaurants. Order and securely pay online and your food is on the way! You can even track your delivery right to your door. Getting your favorite foods delivered is that easy.

Can I schedule a delivery in advance?

Yes. Before clicking Place Order, simply select Scheduled and you can select the date and time you wish to have your meal delivered. After selecting the date and time you want, click Place Order and we'll handle the rest.

How fast will I get my food?

How fast you'll get your food depends on a number of things. How far is the restaurant? How bad is traffic? Is it snowing out? The average time is approximately 40 minutes but it could be more or less. Either way, you can track where your driver is on the DoorDash website or app.

What is a group order and how can I create one?

A group order allows multiple people to add items into an order at the same time. Once a group order is created through a DoorDash Account, the rest of the group doesn't need to have a DoorDash Account to use the group order link. Even better, you can pre-order up to four days in advance, which makes it great for events and meetings. Follow these steps to create a group order:

  •  Log into your DoorDash account.

  •  Choose your restaurant.

  •  In the upper right-hand corner, click Create a group order.

  •  Send the group order link to others.

  •  When everyone is done adding their items into the cart, you can close the group order and complete checkout.

What is DashPass?

DashPass is a subscription service that provides free deliveries (no delivery fee) on orders from eligible restaurants. Service fees and minimum subtotal may apply. Check your DoorDash app for more details and to sign up (available only in certain areas).
