We've been to Mamma Maria's in the past and it never disappoints. From the white linen tablecloths and attentive service to the homey, intimate dining rooms on both levels, this is one of a few authentic Italian restaurants for fine dining left in the North...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.
