Monica's restaurant is one of my favorite's in the North End. My boyfriend and I have both enjoyed it on several occasions. The first time I got the gnocchi marinara (which was AWESOME) and he had a pork roast on a bed of mashed potatoes with apple ravioli which he said was one of the best meals he'd ever eaten. Though it's sometimes difficult to get a table during tourist's season, this restaurants staff is always polite and professional. Decor is not much to speak of- elegant blue walls with white table cloths, but the large storefront picture windows are great for people watching. Expect the check to be over $100 once you toss in the bottle of wine, but it is SO worth it.
