Excellent food, cozy atmosphere. We showed up a little early and seated us right away. Staff were very friendly. Only downside was a table for 8 next to us that was quite loud, but that wasn’t the fault of the restaurant. Would definitely recommend and would go again!

Excellent service on a very busy Saturday night. Halibut special was delicious and generously portioned. One person in our party was disappointed with his seafood fra diavlo saying sauce was much too thick and not authentic. Nice Italian wine selection. Tables close together. Noisy but then again it was a Saturday night. Would try again mid week.

Well, where do I start..in town for a concert from Cape Cod. Looked up reviews and based on that, picked this restaurant . Food is great . Service was odd. First, my friend asked for coffee. Coffee machine broken . Bad start since she does not drink. We were told by our “ tall, young slightly bearded waiter “ ( no names used) that there was coffee down and that’s where we could go. Know where you could have gone, downstairs to get her coffee.. really. So dinner was fine after that rough start. So the check comes..no dessert offer. He said” no dessert for you, you have Mike’s pastry in that box”... Again really! And it was not like anyone was waiting for our table on a Monday. Well I go back? No, there are too many Italian restaurants that would appreciate our presence. And yes, we did go down stairs for our coffee!

Aria has become our "go - to" restaurant whenever we get to Boston. The staff is very welcoming, helpful and professional and the food is outstanding. We have worked our way through many items on the menu and have never been disappointed! Cannot recommend Aria enough!

Aria Trattoria was recommended by friends. We totally enjoyed our evening. We started with meatballs and salami platter - so good!! The bread was awesome! My husband had a pasta dish that was so outstanding - I had the mushroom stuffed chicken (parts of my chicken were not fully cooked). The service was wonderful - they were always there and moved our meal through quickly. We will go back again - and recommend to others.

Incredibly noisy. The manager needs to tell customers that are shouting at the top of their lungs to respect other people. I won't go back even though the food was decent and not expensive.

So glad we finally got to eat at Aria! With so many restaurants in the North End, it’s hard to get to all of them. But, I have to say that this is some of the best Italian we have had in the North End, hands down. Having been to Italy 3 times in the past 5 years, I guess I can consider myself a good judge of this cuisine. That, and my Italian heritage;) The owner welcomed us to his “home” and was very accommodating. The service was excellent and attentive. It was loud, but I think that’s part of the charm. We will return!

We have made Aria Trattoria our family Easter Sunday tradition and it never disappoints. The service is attentive, professional, and very personal (even funny at times). The food is exceptional, with a wide variety of authentic Italian and American cuisine. The portions are huge. We look forward to it every year.

Food was excellent. They were kind enough to accommodate us earlier than our reservation time. Staff was extremely friendly and made us feel at home. The pasta was especially fresh and the seafood was delicious. We received complimentary limoncello at the end of the meal... which made us feel like special guests.

My GF and I visiting Boston for 1st time and saw Aria Trattoria at top of a list of best North End restaraunts. On the whole, disappointed. On the positive side the Caesar salad and calamari appetizer were fantastic. But our entrees of lobster/pasta and scallops w zucchini were very underwhelming, tasted like the seafood was frozen. (By contrast, we got a lobster role next day at Faneuel Market and thought, Ahh, this is how lobster is supposed to taste). Worst, was the place was so noisy - on a Thursday evening - we could hardly hear each other, was a relief to get out of there

A night out with my wife, and we've been haphazardly working our way among restaurants in the North End of Boston. This one is a real find: delicious food, exceptional wine, attentive and professional service. (For us 60-somethings this means NOT being greeted with "I'm Todd....How are we tonight? What are we having to drink? ... etc.) Servings are substantial--not immense, but a solid plateful. Our table by the window gave a fine view of the busy-ness of Hanover St. In all, authentic, attentive, delicious.

One of my favorite restaurants. We went on a Sunday evening so it was a bit quieter than a Friday or Saturday but it was amazing as usual. It has a cozy atmosphere which is quite enjoyable. On this visit (have been here many times before), I had an amazing seafood special which consisted of swordfish, scallops, shrimp and lobster. It was served over a medley of roasted vegetables and everything was amazing. Service was excellent as well. As usual, I enjoyed a delicious espresso martini for dessert :) I really enjoy dining at Aria and would definitely recommend.

From the time we walked in the door up to the quaint bar upstairs we were greeted with nothing but smiles, Gill the bartender was friendly and great to talk to. Mossimo greeted us at the door and couldn't do enough to accommodate our wishes for a perfect window seat. Our waiter Diego could not have been more helpfu,l polite, explaining our dishes we were to order. Aria will be the first restaurant we revisit when we're back here in Boston.
