The North End has great restaurants and food, but it can be a tourist trap and a headache to get to for a nice evening. I took my parents and two guests from California to Stellina after failing to get reasonable reservations at several places in Boston. The decor was nice, despite it's location in Watertown Square. The main entrance to the restaurant is in the ""back"" from the lot. It was a tad awkward because they have a few outdoor tables set up around a makeshift fountain/garden. Our party of five was seated inside, a small, dimly-lit dining room.
Pros: Easy Location, Excellent Food, Good ambience
Cons: Spotty Service, Outdoor Seating
