This landmark restaurant never disappoints. The food is always very well prepared and creative. Pasta is too die for!

Great plus house adds so much charm too.

On the expensive side but worth every penny!

After 13 years of simply visiting Boston and enjoying Mamma Maria each trip, I now live here and get to enjoy the restaurant more regularly. We made a reservation for our anniversary and were unsure what to expect with the COVID-19 restrictions. It was quite impressive how the restaurant was set up to keep distance among the parties while keeping the warm and inviting ambiance I have grown to love.

We started off with a great recommendation from Enrique, our server, for wine, and the evening was great throughout. The appetizer course of Uovo Ravioli and Sea Scallops were skillfully prepared, well portioned, and delicious. I went with the special bone-in Veal Milanese and my wife had the halibut main. Both were perfectly cooked, balanced, and paired well with the included side. I'm a sucker for mashed parsnips, and they were excellent paired with the halibut I stole from my wife's plate.

Chocolate Torta Caprese, Panna Cotta, and a few amaro tastings rounded out a fantastic anniversary dinner. Enrique could not have been better or more attentive.

Highly recommend for a dinner date or a group where you can share and taste a variety of dishes (after COVID, of course).

Had a lovely time at Mamma Maria. Everything was great and they prepared for covid with plexiglass around our table which made for a safe environment. It was so nice to go out to eat surrounded by beautiful Christmas lights and decorations in the heart of the north end. The staff was amazing. 😊

The waiter was absolutely the most professional and friendly I’ve ever experienced! We went with a couple who didn’t speak english and he was really respectful and understanding and didn’t rush us whatsoever. Great experience and the food was out of the this world. The osso bucco was extremely delicious same as the bone marrow! Over all a amazing experience!

Mamma Maria’s was the best, hands down, meal we’ve ever had together. Raphael, our waiter, was outstanding!! His recommendations were spot on. The ambiance in the dining room we were seated was exquisite. We sat at a table overlooking the North End street, incredible. The food was, well, absolutely delicious!! We had a bottle of Sicilian Chardonnay that was top notch. We hadn’t a Chardonnay like it before. We will be back!

Everything was perfect. We sat outside and there were plenty of heaters and we had dressed warmly.

The food was spectacular. My daughter said the lobster pasta was the best thing she has ever eaten!! All the food was delicious. The service was perfect.

I highly recommend it. I wish they could continue to serve outside past December 1 because we are not ready to do indoor dining until there is a vaccine.

Food was amazing with great service. Our party of 5 ate inside, the restaurant was adequately protected with plastic barriers between tables... we were in a tight space, but again we had a larger party. Overall a great experience. Worth the price, 10/10 would recommend.

Due to COVID concerns we enjoyed our dinner on the outside patio despite chilly weather. The heaters, extra layers of clothing, hot coffee and cold beer solved that challenge. The service and quality of the meal were both outstanding. Even a simple pesto for the bread basket was terrific. Our appetizers, meals, and dessert were excellent. It’s very nice that the restaurant is a block away from Hanover street, We will return to Mamma Maria for sure.

We ate outside, and it is wonderful to have so many tables in the square outside the restaurant (in North Square). I hope they can continue doing that for as long as possible. My son and I had the rabbit pappardelle (delicious) and my husband had the tagliatelle bolognese, also good. Mamma Maria is not the typical basic Italian restaurant, but has a more refined cuisine, so if you are looking for the classics it may not be the place for you. But everything we had was terrific.
