The Taste of the North End was founded by North End restaurant owners, Donato and Nancy Frattaroli, in 1993 as a benefit for Casa Monte Cassino, a place to stay for impoverished families from around the world while their children receive serious medical attention in Boston.
Over the next few weeks, as the Frattarolis developed the idea for the Taste of the North End to raise funds to help Casa Monte Cassino provide its invaluable services. Since then, the Taste of the North End has raised over $450,000 for Casa Monte Cassino and other local North End charities!
