Trattoria Il Panino
Opening its doors over 20 years ago, Trattoria Il Panino is Boston’s original trattoria—as in, an Italian restaurant serving simple, inexpensive, and classic dishes (traditionally on the streets of Italy). Take your pick from spaghetti carbonara, chicken parm, penne al pomodoro and more. And while you’re there, you might even notice some familiar faces plastered on the wall; celebs like Robert De Niro, Jimmy Kimmel, and Mariah Carey have all stopped by for a bite. It’s also worth mentioning the restaurant is owned by Campania-born restaurateur Frank DePasquale, who has founded other local Italian favorites like Bricco, Aquapazza, Mare, and Quattro.
