Authentic Italian in North Street near Hanover in the north end. Multiple floors so quite large restaurant. Extensive wine list, pasta was good, service knowledgeable- menu changes daily and uses local ingredients. Worth a visit.

We checked several restaurants out the day before and made a reservation for Mamma Maria. We sat upstairs with a lovely view of the street below. The meal was delicious and the service was excellent.

Friendly/thoughtful service in a nice ambience. Prices were fair, for the quality of food. Not a traditional Italian menu, by any stretch. Really only a couple of pasta dishes. The server mentioned that the menu changes often. No hesitation in recommending it.

Ate at the bar, which we highly recommend. Great service and environment. Osso bucco and lobster ravioli was very good. Apple tart dessert was great. It was a pricy meal, but the overall experience was worth it.

We visited Mamma Maria’s on a Thursday night and reserved a last minute seat at the bar. Honestly- these turned out to be the best seats in the house due to the wonderfully engaging, knowledgeable, and talented bartender. We were served fresh bread with pesto...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

Eh...not really. The streets to get to the restaurant are narrow, and the restaurant itself is crowded with tables downstairs, with stairs going up to the second floor. I didn't see an elevator. It would be difficult to... More
