The Port of Boston welcomed one of the largest groups of Italian immigrants in the late 1800s, second only to the Irish. Most settled in the North End and dominated Boston's produce and fishing industries.
It's no surprise that Italian seafood dishes are so prevalent and exceptionally delicious in Boston!
The North End is still known for its excellent Italian restaurants like Dolce Vita Ristorante, an unpretentious, low-key hidden gem run by a Sicilian immigrant grandpa Franco Graceffa.
