    The best tiramisu I've ever had. The atmosphere is delightful and the food is light and fresh tasting. All around one of the very best Italian eateries in the Boston area -- ample competition for anything in the North End.

    I am grateful that I did not read gbarberis review of Helmand's as I would have denied myself a gastronomical delight! The menu is ambrosia to the taste buds with each appetizer and entree a delectable wonder to experience. I highly recommend any of the lamb dishes as my dinner companions were equally enchanted with their choices. Having just returned from Paris, I was not expecting to enjoy any meal until my memories had faded so I am deeply grateful that Helmund exists and I can recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

    The decor was lovely. The food was good, but not exceptional. The table next to us was given an incorrect bill, as I was. When I called this to the young lady's attention, she became rude and couldn't understand since the bill was only $6.00 over! The bread basket was removed with one slice of delicious bread left. We were sitting next to the bread oven and had a very clear view. The baker removed the unused piece of bread, cut off the edges, and then placed it back in the oven to be used in the next bread basket! Very bad experience.

    we had gone to this restaurant with our 4 month old baby....we got a table but wanted to change it as people of the neighbouring tables were very loud and the baby was getting very cranky as baby was sleeping.....so as we asked if we could change the table....the management got irritated and told us to decide once for all which table we want to sit on!!!....that is one rude and incensitive piece of behaviour and one disappointing dining experience!

    Food is generally very good and atmosphere is beautiful but it is over priced. Service is only average and the management can be rude.

    Great Place! We ate there on July 11/2000 and loved it. The atmosphere is kind of 'pub-ish' but with an electic twist. Our appetizers were excellent - the bruschetta was fabulous, and the calamari was some of the best I've ever had. Entre was Salmon Fillet stuffed with scallops & shrimp with a white wine cream sause, baked potato (with guacamoli), and green beans. Dessert was 'to die for' - called Lemon Napoleon - nice tart lemon taste with fresh berries & whipped cream layered with light, flakey pastry. With just an entre & dessert - the total was just under $25. The portions are very generous. With a drink, an appetizer & tip - around $40. Atmosphere was nice - dimly light - seating at bar - but the sign on the door said 'No Smoking' yet people were smoking at the seated bar. Also, it was noisy. Overall: Highly recommend.

    Not bad, but not nearly as good as you might have heard. Food is competent but unexceptional. Atmosphere is hotel-boring. You should be able to do better for the price.

    This is a small place with a pretty casual atmosphere. The foof id very good, and the service is usually above average. You can't beat the prices, and it's a great place to meet a friend, or take your family to.

    The Spinnaker ItaliaFabulous atmosphere.. the restaraunt spins at 1/2mph.. you have the view of Boston skyline and it is gorgeous. The food over the last 10 yrs has gone down hill dramatically. The have changed chefs and mgmt and the quality has gotten poorer and poorer.. where the piccata would come out looking delicious.. fettucine etc and a few yrs late it came out with spagetti. It is a shame. The service is fabulous. The waiters Kendall and Panna are the best ever... atleast if you go ... ask for them...Kendall was promoted and does not wait tables anymore... The atmosphere is great... BUT it is a money maker... they get all of these tourists who vitit the restaraunt one time, the food quality does not need to be grand, because they are not catering to the Bostonian. They are catering to the tourist...not to the repeat customer. The Boston Glober did a review that said something similar a year ago. It is sad that such a beautiful place serves dinner that are supposed to be esquisite but seem thrown together....
