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

Valentines Day on a date, we each had the special 4-course meal with their recommended wine, and it was all excellent!! I will definitely return to try something else on then menu.

Great overall experience. Staff was great very attentive, ambiance was great we even got lucky with a window seat over looking Hanover Street. However the noise level was very noisy at times making it hard to hear my date, (not good for an intimate date). Overall food was good, I wish I got something else other than the nightly special they were serving but that's my fault. My girlfriend got the Bolognese which was delicious. Overall great, but not the best the Northend has to offer. I would go back again, and would recommend it to friends.

This my second visit to this restaurant.....The first time, there were six of us , it was outstanding !! This time, for the four of us, not so good....... Two of us had Osso Buco and it was OK, sauce was thin (watery). Two had pasta dishes, one with red sauce and one with a very bland white sauce. Our server, Fabrizzio, was very good. I will return in a few months, because of my first visit, and hoping this past one was a fluke.

Maybe we caught a bad night but felt very rushed and at times ignored. It is a very small space with no room for overflow so we waited a bit to be seated for our reserved time. Will try again perhaps on a week night.

Great experience! The food was amazing-we had the meatballs to start, the mushroom ravioli and frutti di mare, and tiramisu for dessert. Portions were very generous. Espresso only for coffee drinks. Cozy atmosphere. Would definitely return!

If you want the full “at home”
Italian experience, definitely go to Aria in the North End. The owner, Massimo, treats you like family as soon as you walk in. Everything from the wine, apps, to the dinner & dessert...TOP NOTCH

We loved this restaurant! Both the owner and server were friendly and nice. But, oh, the food! Outstanding! We loved the Truffle Caesar so much we ordered a 2nd (we originally thought just a bite for all 4 of us, but we all wanted more.) We also loved the Gnocchi with Lobster and also the 60 oz steak. We even loved the sides we chose: polenta and stuffed pepper. (Because we lived overseas and make our own authentic Tiramisu we are often disappointed). Their Tiramisu, however, is authentic and delicious! Everything we had was delicious (even the dirty martini's and the wine.)

The restaurant is on the 2nd floor. The setting is a nice little cozy restaurant with a pretty brick interior overlooking Hanover St. It would be nice for any occasion. I personally wouldn't think of it as a family restaurant for little kids. It's more romantic.

We have already highly recommended this restaurant to several friends and we've posted our recommendations to our FB circles. We will definitely be going back.
You will NOT be disappointed.

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.
