view web site ›'s insider take:

In a small second-story storefront overlooking bustling Hanover Street, Marco Cucina Romano is a welcome retreat from the kitsch (hanging grapes, carafes of Chianti, murals of Neapolitan landscapes) prevalent in so many other North End Italian restaurants. In a more rustic approach, drippy candles illuminate a fireplace, large potted plants add a touch of country ambience, and brick walls up the charm—although they can also raise the noise level a few decibels. With his seasonal menus, Marc Orfaly, also the chef–owner of another Boston favorite, Pigalle (75 Charles St.; 617-423-4944), pays homage to the simplicity of Roman-style dishes with his clams oreganato, house-cured salumi, veal saltimbocca, and orecchiette with pancetta, peas, fava beans, and ramps. Portions tend toward the small side, but that just means more room for a cappuccino and the obligatory serving of homemade cannolis.

Open Tuesdays through Thursdays 5 to 10 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 5 to 11 pm, Sundays 4 to 9:30 pm (family-style dinner menu only).
