Located in Boston's historic North End, Aria Trattoria features a mix of modern and old world Italian cuisine while paying homage to Massimo family roots from abruzzi influences. The menu is built on a foundation of simple, fresh pastas and antipasti, as well as a healthy dose of grilled meats, fish, and poultry dishes. Well-loved favorites like limoncello marinated shrimp, Cavetelli con Agnello, and massimo's grandmother's Porchetta

Great food and atmosphere. Service was excellent!! Wasn't our first time there and won't be our last.

Can't imagine there being a better Italian spot in the North End. Had the meatballs, mushroom ravioli, and osso bucco and each were delicious and memorable. Will be returning the next time I'm in Boston!

Incredible menu and we loved the chef tasting menu. They brought out almost the entire menu for us to sample and it was one of the best meals I've had in a really long time

We have been to Aria several times and the service is always top notch. We love the family style option so we can try as many items on the menu.

We had the Caesar salad which tasted like a tablespoon of mayo mixed with water with one unchopped anchovy layed on top of fresh romaine and a few croutons. Fresh, but no flavor for $12. Tremendously disappointing. Then, on to the Bolongese which I thought was a B, the wife gave it an A so I guess we'd have to give it a B+
So, salad an "F", entree a "B+" and prices $$+, I'd say there are too many other choices before I would return to Aria.

Typical busy Saturday night. Restaurant overall had good vibes and large groups for the holidays. Main entrees were a little dried out as it sat a while before reaching our table. AT is known for their meatballs and markets itself as a commonplace for Patriots players to drop by. The host, owner, Massimo is a solid guy and very hospitable. His staff worked the room masterfully and no surprise why folks are raving about the experience. Overall 4.1/5

From start to finish this was top notch. The best meatballs I have had since forever. I would have been satisfied with a loaf of bread and the sauce the meatballs were in. Split the bolognese pasta dish as an app - terrific as well. Finished off with a terrific grilled scallops dish - I'll be heading back next time I am in town.

Best gluten free bolognese I’ve ever had! Service was also phenomenal. Ambiance was so cute and romantic.

I love this place. The food is mind blowing. The only way to go is the fare de viaggio.

Delicious meal and a fantastic menu. The price fixe option with the wine flight was great, as usual. Massimo always makes sure you have a good time. Attentive, professional service. The food; lemoncello shrimp, salumi with truffle honey and the meatballs and a fresh crispy insalata was a great start. A couple of foodies in our party were wondering why they had not been there before. It was about to get better with the bolognese, osso buco, veal chop, rib eye, and swordfish special. It is very obvious that the kitchen knows what they are doing. We had a good argument about the best dish and favorite glass of wine. We look forward to settling it at the next visit.

We go to the North End for dinner 4-5 times each year, which is not enough frankly. This was our first trip to Aria, it was outstanding. From being greeted at the door and given the heads up on how timing was running for our reservation (on time) to the familial way the staff treated each other and us, to the food which was absolutely amazing. I had a home made cavatelli with sausage special, it was probably the best thing I've eaten in 6-months if not this year (I travel a ton for work and frequent high end restaurants regularly).

It's a pretty small place, they had a party of about 10 in there with us at the same time and the rest of the restaurant was full, no delays, no issues, larger party had zero impact on our experience.

Aria Trattoria is our new favorite place in the North End, probably even in Boston.

I was brought up in an Italian Family, my dad was born in Italy . From the same region as owner, these meatballs were the best I ever had!! All the food was authentic, Pinot Grigio was fantastic !!
