Classic. Believed to be the oldest Italian eatery in the North End, Cantina Italiana opened its doors in 1931 and has satisfied with flavorful traditional dishes ever since. Most of the pasta dishes are homemade with sauces made with San Marzano tomatoes. Friendly, knowledgeable staffers and reasonable prices are two more great reasons to plan on a night out here. Valet parking is available in the evening.
