Carmen Wine Bar & Trattoria

33 North Sq.
Boston, MA, 02113, United States
TEL: (617) 742-6421

One of the most celebrated restaurants in Boston’s North End, this intimate Italian trattoria is known for its romantic candlelit dining room. Exposed brick walls, wood paneling and bottles of wine line the walls of Carmen’s, where patrons often first gather at the bar to indulge in a glass of Italian wine and small plates like roasted sweet peppers with basil and homemade mozzarella. Once seated, diners savor old-world specialties like rack of pork with spicy mustard or the crespelle stuffed with porcini and caramelized onion in a decadent Bolognese sauce.

Insider Tip:

Carmen has only nine tables, so be sure to make your reservations early, as same-day reservations are often difficult to accommodate.
