Mama Maria is a very fine establishment with authentic food and ambiance. We went there for a romantic birthday date. It was small, quiet and the service was great. There were not many options, but I would imagine they have a rotating menu. We had a half bottle of wine, one appetizer, split a main entree, and dessert. It was perfect! More

I ordered a swordfish special which was phenomenal and they added a few fresh scallops for me as a bonus. The cozy ambiance is probably my favorite part which always keeps me coming back in addition to the great food and wine. It's my go-to in the north end! More

Our calamari, lobster ravioli and bolognese were very good. Waiter was excellent. Wine was delicious and generous portion. The veal marsala was such a disappointment. It was tender and the mushrooms lovely but it was seriously under seasoned (I am not generally a fan of too much salt) I think the chef forgot the marsala—it was bland like baby food.-no exaggeration. Tiramisu and espresso was also very good. Overall friendly and delicious early dinner. I would come back More

Food was delicious: edamame (chili sauce on the side), Geisha Roll, and Red Light District Roll. The crab rangoons were fabulous. Our only disappointment were the dumplings-they fell apart, sticky, and little flavor despite having shrimp and steak. Overall, fun date night and we will absolutely return! More

As always, Monicas did not disappoint! They finally put my favorite meal on the menu as a regular dish, as it was a "special" for over 2 years. The newly renovated space is MUCH bigger. The original had some charm to it with very limited seating. Now it is quite loud, but at least there is more room to move. Exposed brick walls and ability to see the chef in action is a great plus. My favorite spot in the North End! More

I have been to Ricardo’s two times, most recently for Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend, and it was lovely! The risotto is my favorite dish and it is absolutely exquisite. I’ve never ordered a bad thing from this restaurant. The service was pretty fast, but our waitress did keep coming over literally every two minutes to check on us which made it a bit harder to relax and enjoy our date and meal together. More

Great space! We came by for some drinks after shopping in the area. We'd been to Ward 8 a bunch of times but the bartender highly recommended that we come check out their "sister resaurant". Pretty quiet night so we sat at the bar and had great conversations with the bartender. She seemed to know her spirits very well and educated us on what exactly mezcal was. (my friend is from Mexico, and even she was impressed) Can't wait to come back for some tacos! =) More
