Enrique was by far one of the best servers I’ve ever dined with. He made our experience spectacular and the food was phenomenal. We ordered the Puccini drink and it was stellar!

Hubby and I had a lovely dinner for my 30th birthday. A complimentary dessert would've been LOVELY. That would have been icing on the cake. Overall, it was an okay experience the second time around. I did expected better service, though.

Chose this restaurant based on reviews and was amazed. Beautiful outdoor seating area across the street from Paul Revere's house. Service was impeccable. We started with antipasti of grilled octopus and calamari that was cooked perfectly and flavorful. I had the ossobuco served over risotto that was tender and flavorful. My wife had the Fruit de Mare that was made to perfection. We paired the dinner with a bottle of Castell de Monsanto Chianti Classico. For desert we split a chocolate torte with Italian cherries with a smooth limoncello. This is a must visit restaurant on Boston's North End.

In these Covid times, this dining experience was as close as we can get to Italy:)
Lovely setting outside on the square, next to pretty, historic buildings (where else can you look at both Paul Revere's house and a Catholic statue?) . The service was excellent and the food exquisite. I had lobster ravioli, a perfect fusion of Italy and New England. My husband had venison, which was flavorful and perfectly cooked. The teens enjoyed the rabbit pasta so much, my son wanted us to return to have it again. For dessert we sampled the chocolate torta and torta caresse. Both delicious - although the torta piece were on the small side for this family of chocoholics.

Mama Maria met all of our expectations. For our 25th wedding anniversary, we were waited on by a very personable and professional server, Luis. P. Luis was able to recommend to us menu items and beverages. He was very accommodating. The young lady who served as busser and replenished water and brought bread was also friendly and professional. The ambiance is very nice, quiet with light music playing in the background which is appropriate to the setting. The lighting was perfect in that is was filmed properly but not too dark. Due to COVID, glass dividers are between the tables but even these are nice looking and don’t deter from the nicely appointed dining room.
The food was fantastic! We started with the baked oysters, Caesar salad and a small order of the lobster agnolotti (pasta) dish. We then moved on to the veal Osso Bucco which was outstanding. A nice detail is the small, demitasse spoon placed at our settings to use for scooping out the marrow from the shank bone. The risotto was very good, as well.
The cocktail I had was a house specialty and the waiter requested the bartender make it less sweet for me, which he did and it was delicious. The wine that Luis suggested paired perfectly with our osso bucco. After dinner, a grappa list was easily navigated with the assistance of Luis and the grappa Barolo that he suggested was perfect!
We were presented with a complimentary, flourless chocolate torte and the plate had been nicely embellished with “Happy Anniversary” in cinnamon. We also ordered a tiramisu which was excellent! A take home container was needed for half of that.
We will definitely return to this highly rated establishment.

Elevated classic italian dishes. Veal osso bucco was as good as I’ve had. Halibut with trumpet mushrooms with parsnip purée was also enjoyed. Terrific wine selection including half bottles.

Mama Maria's is an old-school, old-world charm of a restaurant in Paul Rever Square. The outdoor dining i Food, as always, was wonderful.s well set up, well-lit while still being romantic. The interior dining is romance at its best as you are actually in the living rooms and dining rooms of the original home. Wine list is top-notch and the service was impeccable.

The food was tremendous! I was not sure of an Italian Restaurant when picking but my food friends convinced me to try it.
I had Black Bass, son had suckling pig, but they had a great variety of choices.

This place was great and the sercice could not have been better.
