By far one of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been to in Boston. If you’re in the north end it’s such a good option, and I definitely recommend getting the summertime ravioli!

Amazing experience! Had Mario as our server and he was perfect from the wine all the way to our dessert. Would recommend this place to anyone, just make sure you ask for Mario!

What an amazing setting! It’s located in the same area as Paul Revere’s home and a little open square on the middle with tables set out for the two restaurants! It’s as close as you will come to being in Italy! The food amazing!!! The setting fantastic! So so good! And my children (20s) and husband could not say enough about how much the enjoyed it!

We loved our night at Mama Maria’s! It started out rough though… we were seated in a corner, upstairs in a very loud and crowded room. My hub asked if we could sit at the bar instead and it changed the night! The bartenders were amazing, the food was outstanding and we left the restaurant with a wonderful experience!

Outstanding food & service! Best I have ever had for "upscale" Italian.

For truly everyday homemade Italian food, go to Pagliuca's on Parmenter.

We were able to get a reservation the same night, this place came highly recommended by a lot of online reviews/friends etc.

The staff were all courteous and professional. We were able to sit on the second floor, which I think is the best seating area because the view of the North and streets and alleys is really nice. The interior is beautiful, like eating in a fancy old-timey house. Loved how it was decorated and was happy to sit facing inward while my fellow guests faced the window.

The food was really awesome. Some dishes we ordered were definitely better than others. Some blew your mind, while others were more "yeah that was good, but not very exciting". I think it may just be a matter of going a few times learning the menu. The portions were good, we were able to order a lot of things and split them all between us, because everyone wanted to try everything.

The real standout here, though, was our server: Mario. He was a spectacular server who was very attentive and charismatic. He told us stories, helped us with questions about food and such, and really looked out for us. Super awesome experience, so much so that next time we go I'd definitely ask to be served by Mario again if possible.

Dropped a few coins for sure, but it was worth it! Food was fantastic--cooked and seasoned to perfection. Waiter was attentive and generous with wine pours, but never hovered. Other staff was just always there when you needed them, put were not a bother. Bravo! Bravissimo!!

Very authentic Italian ambience and food. The lobster agnolotti was extraordinary and the rabbit ragu was moist, creamy and rich in flavor. Extensive wine list, but we went with the waiter's recommendation and it paired perfectly with our food. Overall, exactly the experience we were looking for.

Service was painfully slow. Had to ask for water three times and took 20-25 minutes for the waiter to come back after greeting us. Sure it was a full restaurant, but we were ignored for way too long. The ambiance was very flat, compared to most restaurants in the North End. Great place for a quiet meal if you have plenty of time.

Food was phenomenal. I had the Lamb Three Ways and it was out of this world. It’s a standard item on the menu and for good reason. My wife had the Rabbit Pasta — meaty and hearty and the perfect serving size.
