This is a very busy place so make a reservation. Worth the money! A little pricey for Italian but definitely worth it.

My daughter, son and adult grandchildren ate here on Oct 28,2017. Our experience was great. We got lucky and had the little alcove on the second level. We were by ourselves. Waiter was efficient and food was excellent. We had the halibut, rabbit, lamb and...More

Ambiance ok but feels crowded and claustrophobic. Lot of small rooms. Server was disengaged and uninterested. Apps were poor. Meatballs were really bad. Fig and prosciutto dish was mediocre. Ossobucco and lobster ravioli was good but a bit too rich and very overpriced.

Husband chosen Mama Maria for our anniversary dinner based on ratings...but it did not meet our expectations. Although the dining room we were seated in had only one other table with patrons,including a noisy child, we were stuffed into a tiny corner table. The spot...More

Went to the restaurant on a Monday night, just to see whether the previous Thursday night's superb dinner was an aberration - it was not! From the great ambiance and quaint dining room for two, to the attentive, superb service, to the food - this...More

We were really looking forward to our meal at this lauded restaurant... and were disappointed from start to finish. The host was a sour man who barely looked up to greet us when we arrived. We sat too long before we were asked about drinks....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

It depends how many people you have. If you can, I would suggest to go and look at the restaurant before. When we were there for dinner, we went upstairs and the rooms we saw were not too big. But if you only have about... More
