    I am picky about italian food - and this place was amazing! The food was fantastic. The service was wonderful - our server made thoughtful suggestions and was very helpful. I highly highly recommend this place before a show - or anytime! We loved it and will certainly be returning.

    We went here prior to seeing a show at Boston Opera (which is literally a 4 minute or less walk). It was packed with what I assume was theatre and after work crowd, i was glad i made reservations! The tables are VERY close to eachother, so close you have to put your butt on your neighbors table to squeeze in...awkward. It was quite loud too. The waiter was handsome and friendly. Drinks took a while to get to the table. My meal was fabulous though, it was a pasta stuffed with marsala braised duck, with a marsala and mushroom sauce. Unexpectedly amazing! The calamari was ok, actually, the actual calamari was good, but the sauces were not! Hubs got apple pizza, it was ok. Overall pricey, but would return when seeing another show bc location

    My husband and I throughly enjoyed our dinner and great wine. Being from New York we are always cautious about eating Italian food anywhere other than NY. We were recommended by a NY transplant and we loved the ambience as well as the food. We highly recommend it, a must try is the Chicken Milanese and the pasta with Bolengese sauce

    The food and service were excellent, and the look and feel of the place were cool and memorable. There was definitely a noise problem though - and we were there at 5pm on a Sunday, when it wasn't full yet. Worth noting, the entree portions are on the small side - go ahead and order one of their delicious-sounding first courses! Our only complaint: because of the way the tables are spaced, you can hear the people at the next table more clearly than the other people at your own.

    My husband and I went here for a "date night" on a saturday evening. The ambiance was lovely, and though it was a bit louder than I usually like, I had no problem being able to carry on a conversation with my husband. The waitress we had was excellent, she checked on us throughout the night but was never so present as to be overbearing. The manager came by our table to see how we were enjoying ourselves and everyone was so friendlY! Most importantly the food was incredible. My husband had the duck, which he raved about the rest of the night, and I (being a vegetarian and had a surprising number of options) had the spinich ravioli with a white sauce that was so light yet flavorful I quickly finished the large plate.

    We made reservations via Open Table but when we arrived they could not find reservation. Although the restaurant was packed, they found us a table with a smile. Love this place; fantastic food, over the top service, friendly, professional waitstaff and all this with moderately priced entrees. Their fried calamari is absolutely the best we have ever eaten. Teatro is a gem. If you are not going to a nearby theatre, wait until after the pre theatre rush is over and then enjoy the best food and service in Boston.

    Had dinner here with friends prior to a concert at the Wang. Loved the drinks, food, and overall evening. Service was a little spotty in timing but the knowledge of our server was great, as was his recommendations. We were an hour late due to traffic on Storrow but they had a table for us anyways (we called twice to say we were still coming). It wasn't the finest table but we were happy just to be seated. Fresh ingredients, simple presentation, generous enough portions.

    Highly recommend Teatro. It's a cool building once you get inside. It's a bit loud, but that adds to the boisterous ambience as long as you're OK with that. The appetizers in particular were fabulous. Grilled peach bruschetta was just amazing. The shared antipasto platter was really great. Entrees were really good too. Lots of variety on the menu. We'll be back.

    Went to Teatro with my nieces while visiting them in Boston. One niece lives nearby and frequents the restaurant. My first experience and it was a real treat. The food was delicious and prices are great. Drinks were great too! We split the Caesar and the arugula salads first. For dinner I had the chicken Milanese which was delicious, one niece had the risotto and the other had a pizza. We all loved our meals and each other's too! I can see why my niece loves the place.

Some of the best mussels I have had! The entrees were a perfect portion size for homemAde pasta. We tried the Milanese, rigatoni, orcheitte, shrimp scampi, scallops and pizza. All of it was was AMAZING some if the best food I have had.

    Our total experience at Teatro was amazing! Beautiful setting & the service was excellent from the moment we walked in the door. We began w/ cocktails:La Valentina and Mojito Italiano. Delicious! Next came the Bruschetta w/ Peaches. It was so good! 2nd course, we enjoyed Arborio with Wild Mushrooms, Parmesan, Truffle Oil & Conchiglie w/Maine Lobster. The Arborio was done to perfection and the lobster in the butter was sweet and tender. We also ordered Parmesan Truffle Fries, which were delicious. Then, we enjoyed Scallops w/ Corn & Potato "Risotto", Chantarelles, Crispy Prosciutto. As if that wasn't enough to send us home happy, we ended with the Dark Chocolate Cake and Cappachinno. Thank you Teatro!...already planning next visit!

    Tetatro had us with the Grilled Peach bruchetta! Amazing. And continued to win us over with their servuce and flavourful mains. We opted for the half portion mains to enable us to sample more dishes...this was brilliant. PEI Muscles were scrumptous...the Main Lobster sea shell pasta was mouth watering..mmmm that Vermont melted butter! MWild mushroom risotta was money...and the shrimp spagetti was very good. Service was fantastic...we couldnt decide btwn two wines so she offered up both to sample to make the devision...nice touch! No hesitation in recommending this to anyone...highly recommend going the half portion route to taste mire from the menu!

    This was our first visit to Teatro. The restaurant is beautiful inside but quite noisy. The food was good but portions were small. I had the small plate of rigatoni bolognese and it was tasty and a decent amount for me but my boyfriend ordered the large plate of ravioli and his portion was very small. Drinks (Absolute & Cranberry) were $10.50 and very weak so that was disappointing. Service was okay; server busy waiting on large party so we waited for everything. Probably won't return since there are lots of other restaurants to try.

    I have been here several times before movies or theater and have never been disappointed. The availability of smaller portion sizes allows you to choose more things, and/or share plates, if desired. My group had the beet salad, calamari and tuna carpaccio, all of which were very good, and the mussels, which were extraordinary. Pastas (made in-house) are very good, too. Mushroom risotto was very rich and mushrooms.

    Teatro is simply amazing. I have been here more than a few times now and every time they hit the mark in both the food and service departments. I don't think I've been to a restaurant that is more consistant that this. Our server was awesome and extremely attentive to our needs and she also had a great personality. For food the sausage appetizer is by far the best and the rigatoni is one of my favorite pasta dishes ever. My only suggestion would be that they give the dessert menu a little TLC. Love this place and highly recommend it to all my friends and anyone visiting Boston and looking for a great place to have dinner.

    Dined at Teatro before last week's Phantom of the Opera. It was outstanding - booked on Open Table (persuaded by the positive comments) and was not disappointed. The heirloom tomatoes and calamari appetizers were fantastic. We had a small plate of the bolognese and shared a white pizza with arugula and hot peppers. Delicious! The wine too was superb (Annabella, I believe) and to top it off, Outstanding Service!!
