A Proper Bostonian’s Christmas Eve in the North End

A Proper Bostonian recounts a North End tradition:

“It’s been our tradition to spend the afternoon of Christmas Eve in the North End, doing some last-minute shopping for food (Pace’s, Mike’s, Salumeria Italiana) and gifts (torrone and pistachios for my dad, turtles and chocolate-covered cherries from the late, lamented Dairy Fresh). Then we split a large pizza from Regina’s.”

  1. Well-deserved praise. I’m new to the neighborhood and no business has been so welcoming as Bova’s. In a neighborhood full of friendly, helpful businesses, they still manage to stand out.

  2. Bova’s is a treasure, and this blogger hit on one of the reasons: the staff makes you feel like one of the family.
