There was a silver lining on Monday night in an otherwise nasty Frankenstorm … no waiting at the North End’s most popular restaurants! Some quick thinking residents headed straight for Giacomo’s Ristorante at 355 Hanover Street where there is always a line outside. Life long North Ender and business owner, Ralph Verrocchi of My Cousin’s Place, said he and friend, Michael Mustaccio, walked right in, “No line and we got the funny waiter.” The waiter happens to be Christian Trotta.
