Ida’s Italian Restaurant, an iconic North End spot at 3 Mechanic Street just off Hanover, was recently reviewed by BakingMeHungry.
“Ida’s is one of the best kept secrets in the North End. Closed in July and open only three evenings on the weekends for dinner, Ida’s is truly a special clandestine spot. … Ida’s is right before Marco and Modern Pastry down an alleyway. … Grandma Bruno makes the meatballs everyday and every Bruno family member works in the kitchen or buses the table in the tiny restaurant. … The restaurant is always busy with locals.”
