Make no mistake, this is not one of your usual touristy, red sauce, establishments that pervade the north end. this is on the higher end of the spectrum, starting with the food , and continuing with the ambience, the service and the wine. We happened...More

Dinner for myself and hubby on our latest Boston trip. We wanted Italian but a bit special. A friend recommended Mamma Maria. The place is unassuming; dim lighting, comfortable furnishings and traditional art on the wall. The staff were welcoming and although busy, they all...More

Small dining rooms. Good (but not great) service. Drinks were SLOW. Food was excellent to incredible. The octopus / squid was amazing. The Ossobuco was crazy good. Overall a great meal, but could be even better!

Great service and food. As with most north end restaurants you need to take a taxi or use the fairly expensive but very convenient ($25 cash only) valet service. The menu changes regularly but did not live up to the promising variety on the website....More

Last time with my wife and oldest daughter, the same greeting/seating/service/drink & food selection satisfaction was duplicated; this time with a lovely, promising BU sophomore granddaughter.

This is a small restaurant in North End close to the Revere House. I had cacio e pepe, yum! Hubby raved about his mushroom ravioli. 2 entrees and 3 glasses of wine, with tip, was approx $130. You can make reservations on Open Table. Highly...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

We were there just a couple of weekends ago. It was very nice and I’d recommend it. But I don’t see it being a good place for New Year’s Eve.

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
