Parla • Boston

Parla is located in the North End section of the city. It’s an authentic Italian kitchen with deep Mediterranean roots and is known for combining old world with the new. From the speakeasy-inspired decor to the 200-year-old reclaimed Kentucky barn wood that adorns each wall, the restaurant provides a warm, inviting ambiance for visitors enjoying a night out.

The menu is different from traditional Italian fare, earning the prestigious vote for ‘Best Modern Italian Restaurant‘ by Boston A-List. Parla takes pleasure in creating exciting original drinks – using an arsenal of over 25 varieties of bitters, and more than 50 house-made shrubs, infusions, and tinctures. Try their Last Word Fizz cocktail and their Fried Brussels for starters, then move to Pasta Carbonara, and finish with Cannolis with whipped ricotta. You won’t be disappointed.
