The Daily Catch is a small family owned italian restaurant. They serve fresh seafood prepared in authentic Sicilian style. The kitchen with only one cook takes up a corner of the place. You have to choose your meal from a blackboard on the wall. The meal is served in the pan it was cooked in, and wine must be drunk out of a plastic cup but this won't spoil the delicious food and great atmosphere.
As the restaurant is very popular and only has about 16 seats, be prepared to line up outside.
Payment: cash only
Favorite Dish: I liked the homemade black pasta (with squid ink) putanesca (olives, anchovy puree, sauteed with mushrooms, pepper and red onions).
The Daily Catch is a very small place, a dive really. The restaurant only seats about 18 people and is staffed by three people: a cook, a hostess/waitress and a bus boy... The hostess/waitress is an older woman who is always entertaining by simply acting normal (she is one of the reasons this is my favorite Boston restaurant).
As is par for the course with many Italian restaurants in Boston's North End, The Daily Catch is family owned (and uses family held recipes) which greatly adds to its character...
Favorite Dish: The Lobster fra Diavolo...the cook takes a whole live lobster cutting it length way with a single chop of a larger meat cleaver, then drops it into a large pan with linguine and gravy. The dish also contains bits of squid and shrimp AND is spiced up with red pepper.
Quite honestly, I think this is my favorite dish of all time...sure as hell beats that chewy dried-out Caribou at the Wildcat Cafe in Yellowknife. If you’re not hungry enough for the Lobster fra Diavolo, but in the mood for something really different try the black pasta served Aglio Olio style (with squid ink).
It is delicious, We went Uncle Tia's restaurant on waterfront it was very good! price is OK too.

A tiny family kind of place. Only seats 20 or so and the kitchen (one cook) takes up one corner of the place. People line up outside waiting to get in.
