If you're looking for a pretty typical North End place complete with white tablecloths, a Sinatra soundtrack, and a server who will always recommend the bolognese first, head to Ciao Bella. It has two dining rooms - a more casual and fun bar downstairs, and a quieter upstairs overlooking the cobblestones of North Square. The food certainly isn't bad, but there isn't really much to distinguish it from any one of dozens of other nearby restaurants.
