This was our second visit and it was for Valentine's Day weekend. We made a last-minute change to the time of our reservation and were seated in a deuce kind of in a busy corridor. However, our server did such a good job that this was never an issue.

We started with an appetizer of razor clams which we have never had before. They were interesting and well-prepared both of us enjoyed them. For entrees my partner had halibut which was prepared perfectly and the best prepared halibut ever tasted. I had a pasta dish with clams and scallops which was magnificent as well. Clearly the talent in the kitchen is well above the mark.

The service recognize that it's a special occasion to be there and treated us accordingly. Every request we made was promptly attended to graciously.

We hope to be back often as this is one of our favorite places to dine in Boston.

Great spot! The service was excellent- I took a lot of the waiter’s recommendations and he did not disappoint. The rabbit and pasta con sugo were excellent. The portions were perfect enough for two to have the complimentary bread, a starter, two entrees, and a dessert.

Wonderful dining experience. If I could award more that 5 stars I certainly would. Service was impeccable. Our waiter Rafael was a delight. Professional, friendly and charming. All of the other staff from the host to busser were equally top-notch.
We were visiting Boston with friends and each had different entrees. All were divine. There aren't enough superlatives to describe just how delicious everything was.
We last visited Boston 15 years ago and dined at Mamma Maria's. We're so happy we returned on this trip and we will make a must-do on our next visits.

We received a gift card for Christmas to this restaurant and we were thrilled with our experience. The food was the best we have had in a long time. We ordered the rabbit pasta, the carpaccio, the tiramisu and the panna cotta. Everything was five stars! We had a delightful bottle of red wine, and cappuccino. Our friends ordered the Ossobucco and they were also delighted. They had the fig and olives for an appetizer and loved every bite. Our service, the ambiance, the quality of the food, all excellent. The noise level is loud when the room fills up, but we were against a wall so it was manageable. The wait time between courses was especially appreciated when you are spending top dollar for a meal. In all we would go back in a heartbeat!

Had dinner with family. Menu is seasonal, something for everyone. Service was good, the food was fresh, particularly the seafoods. I ordered the Lamb and the toasted surface was amazing. We highly recommend it.

A perfect 3 hour dinner (two couples). Service was impeccable. From appetizer to dessert everything was wonderful. Ambiance and low noise level (must have sound absorbing walls) is very conducive to relaxed conversations. The best night out I have had in a long time!

Mamma Maria’s has been one of my favorite restaurants in Boston for many years, and this visit was no exception. Lovely ambience, great Italian food, and excellent service are hallmarks of this wonderful establishment, situated off the beaten path (on the little square by the Paul Revere house) in the North End. Great for intimate dinners or with a bunch of friends, you won’t be disappointed!

Special place for a great night out. Second floor seating provides a great view, much better than street level restaurants that permeate the North End. Our waiter Tom, made some excellent suggestions (wine and food) and was attentive without hovering. The food was spectacular. If you haven’t eaten at Mamma Maria, make a reservation soon.
