OK food...Horrible wait staff

We have eaten here a couple of times, usually because other North End restaurants were full, and have had OK food. For the price, you can definitely find a better meal. On our visit tonight, which will be our last, the server was dismissive and rude. We left a 10% tip on a $100 bill. Apparently, that was not enough for him. He came out of the back holding up our check and cash and announced very loudly that 15-20% was customary. We generally tip a miminum of 20%, but felt that 10% was generous due to his forgetfulness and attitude. Needless to say we will be eating, and tipping, elsewhere in the future!

User review by theduke37

Five North Square is one of those places you'd think was great if it was your first time to the North End, but it's only average in comparison to it's area peers. We tried the Cioppino, a few appetizers and a couple pasta dishes and thought they were all solid. You won't be disappointed per se, but the opportunity cost of missing out on one of the spectacular North End restaurants is significant.

As North End resturants go, it's also not especially romantic.

Great!!!

I was searching for good restaurant for this valentines day, when I realized I came here with my girlfriend before and had to write something. The food was delicious and prices are definatly reasonable. The atmosphere (I sat upstairs) was romantic/smaller then the other sidewalk restaurants, as this was just outside the busy street. I just may go back again!!! P.S. I am a college student so I really have to spend money well and this place is worth it.

Great!

I came here with my boyfriend awhile back and had the best time! We had a great experience there and had a very romantic table. I highly recommend this restaurant for ambiance, service, and most importantly the food!

Disappointed

As a native of Boston, I have been to several Italian restaurants in the North End. I was quite disappointed with Five North Square. It started at the front door where the hostess seemed bothered that she had to seat a party of two. There is no ambiance. The decor reminded me of a low-overhead Chinese resaurant. We received bread and butter as we sat, but waited a good ten minutes to be acknowledged by our waiter. He also seemed bothered that we had questions about the menu. Our food was just okay. There are much better places to choose from in the North End.

great for lunch!

My girlfriend and I went on valentine's day afternoon for lunch. The lunch specials are totally awesome for such high caliber food. Although the lunch menu is somewhat limited compared to the dinner menu, it still offers a wide variety of great Italian dishes.

GOOD HOME COOKING

This restaurant was reccomended to me by a North End resident. She said the ambience is like your grandmothers house and the food is DELICIOUS! I completely agree. The food is authentic Italian and there is something on the menu for everyone. I wouldn't hesitate to take my own Italian grandmother there. Maybe she will feel like she is back home.
