My family has eaten here several times for special occasions and we are never disappointed. They kindly work with my kid's allergies and ensure that he is able to eat something delicious. The pastas are wonderful and the environment is so warm and welcoming. Service...More

This was a group dinner of about 40 people and it was spectacular. There was a set appetizer of three different tastings. The roast oyster with cheese dressing was wonderful. The entrée was then Al la carte and everyone raved about their choice. Two dessert...More

Found the food to be ok not the greatest Italian I've ever had but every place has an off night. Wait staff was great. Old and tattered but that statement is not meant in a bad way. Its part of the atmosphere of a very...More

As a disclaimer, this is the only restaurant we tried in North End so I don't know how they compare. Location is very nice, a little off the main drag in a quaint building. Service was great, no complaints at all. The bread was excellent...More

Was there with a large group so my choices were limited. What I had was very good, a very nice pasta and desserts, as for starters go, nothing great.

We were here on a busy Saturday. The food is great. The place is very busy. Our waitress was terrific. Lots of menu choices. White tablecloths. Cozy rooms available. Just go. You will not be disappointed.

Taken by a colleague to escape from the hotel. Great choice - lovely, authentic Italian food with excellent service. We had a window table so a nice view of the neighbourhood. Will definitely be back.

The overall experience in this restaurant was top class. The various rooms have a delightful Italian feel. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The food was utterly delicious. We were celebrating a family occasion and Mamma Maria was the perfect place.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend and TA reviews looked promising. Service did seem a little rushed, as mentioned in other reviews. Food was above average with homemade pasta being the standout. Mushroom tortellini were excellent. Pasta bolognese was quite spicy due to...More

Cozy romantic restaurant, table looking out onto North Square, candles on the table. Food was excellent, too. We had scallops with green risotto, pasta Bolognese, apple tart and wonderful wine. Service was outstanding. The only reason this doesn't get 5-stars was because they pack the...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

I believe they do take requests, but should probably call a day in advance to check.
