Parla


Voted Best Modern Italian Restaurant - Boston A-List

A curious departure.

An Italian kitchen steeped in Mediterranean roots, with a modern edge.

Parla is a carefully constructed union of old and new. From the speakeasy inspired décor to the 200 year old reclaimed Kentucky barn wood that adorns the walls, Parla provides an ambiance that is equally rustic and elegant. We at Parla are dedicated to providing our guests with a warm and attentive dining experience from start to finish.

Parla is located on Hanover St. in Boston's Historic North End. The menu is a curious and whimsical departure from traditional Italian-American fare. Chef Ernesto crafts inventive dishes using unique ingredients with familiar flavors. From carbonara to chicken and waffles, the fare is unpretentious and satisfying.  

Parla employs a similar approach to the cocktail program as well. We take as much pleasure in riffing on classic cocktails as we do in coming up with exciting or outlandish originals.  Armed with an arsenal of over 25 varieties of bitters and over 50 house made shrubs, infusions, and tinctures, we are able to accommodate virtually any palate. Refined. Irreverent. Fun-loving. Picklebacks.

EAT.

Taste drives the experience here at Parla. With a strong attention to detail and emphasis on local ingredients,  you are sure to find a dish that you will fall in love with.

Something for everyone- we are happy to provide our guests with vegetarian,  vegan,  or celiac friendly options upon request.

There's also Great Gatsby Brunch every Saturday & Sunday from 11am-3pm with old-timey music peppering the soundtrack.  Flapper attire optional...

Cheers, old sport! 

 

DRINK.

Paying homage to American classics, the cocktail program at Parla provides a refreshing and unique update on traditional cocktails, while keeping a few of the classics handy (you know, 
for the purists out there).

The award-winning craft beer selection features thoughtfully selected offerings from local breweries such as Jack's Abby, Stony Creek, Maine Brewing Company, and Bantam,  to name a few.

BE Social.

You won't see any white table cloths in here. We prefer all of our guests to feel comfortable and enjoy dining out on their own terms.

With a strong emphasis on small plates we encourage all of our guests to dine and share as they explore the menu. Part of the experience is trying something new.
