Went with collegues who were from all over the world. (Singapore,Australia and UK). The food was a lot of style but not substance. I was expecting real Italian food but got a lot of fluff. The service was ok but they were trying make it...More

This is a fantastic Italian restaurant in the very competitive gastronomic North End. Located in a charming old house at the top of a delightful 19th century cobbled square, you will be transported to culinary heaven by a very professional staff and a superb kitchen....More

Tucked away in North End is old ("historic") house. Menu changes daily. Tried lobster ravioli, a bit rich. Heard fresh fish was good. Very good appetizers (sausage and pasta, tomato and mozzarella). Good wine list. Good service. A bit cramped with four at a table...More

Restaurant was hyped up by friends, we were disappointed with average Italian food. My wife had the fish and I had the spaghetti. The highlight was the expresso gelato. Won't go back

We were uncertain about our visit to Mamma Maria - Italians in UK can be quite old fashioned. We need not have worried, the atmosphere was very buzzy, the room cosy and we were given a good table near the window. The food generally lived...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
