We visited Mamma Maria last night for a business dinner. What a charming place in a lovely location in the old Italian area of Boston. Service was great and the food was delicious. I had the rabbit dish and several at the table had the scallops (also delicious). Great Italian wine selection too. I'd definitely return again with my other... More

Five of us recently dined at Mama Maria's. The food and ambience was very good, but sadly non of us will ever go back there again. We were served by a waitress and her attendant, a young chap in a constant rush dropping plates on our table or picking them up too soon with food still on them; filling up... More

The have a very complete Menu. Interesting atmosphere. The service was competent, attentive and very professional. The food was delicious. The whole experience is fantastic. A bit pricey but worth it. Highly recommended. Make an advance reservation.

If you have read some of my other reviews, you know that we have a "go to" favorite in the North End. Is it fair to make comparisons? We like Mamma Maria a lot. Great food, attentive staff, beautiful restaurant. I'm not going to throw a "but......" in there. We liked this place a lot. We focused on a couple... More

The settings are lovely and great. The service is on the top. However, the food served is not there to meet the price you paid...

This was a big disappointment and especially coming off an impeccable meal at Ostra the night before. I am giving it 2 stars for the cute little house it is in. We told our waitress that we would be sharing everything while we were ordering. We ordered 3 appetizers and a Osso bucco. Our waitress would come and leave the... More

We had dinner at this restaurant. It was a very nice experience. The restaurant itself is lovely and has areas with nice views of the area. The food was nice, but it was not the best Italian food you can find in the North End. Service was nice. I would go there again as a nice "special evening" but not... More

I was here with a friend for dinner. There service was good. We ordered octopus and steak, both were good. They overall ambiance is very nice and can be a good location for a special occasion in north end.

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
