The food was excellent and the service on point. Oysters and burrata were great apps, the rabbit pasta and steak were expertly prepared, and the peach tart was sublime. We sat outside which was great in high 60s-low 70s weather, but inside looked lush too. 10/10 would go again.

Our neighborhood fave: service exceptional, menu seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Located in a historic townhouse on North Square, in Boston’s North End, the city’s oldest neighborhood. Dining rooms are intimate and understated, traditional. Outdoor dining is situated in North Square: it has the feeling of an Italian piazza but with local charm: beautiful Sacred Heart Church, the Paul Revere House, a view of the Boston skyline. Though we dine at Mamma Maria’s regularly, Our dinner last night was for my birthday - they made it special, with a summery mint panna cotta complete with candle. Little touches that add up to a memorable dinner in the North End, whether you live here or are visiting our fair city.

Choosing to eat at Mamma Maria was one of the BEST choices we made on our trip. The food was outstanding and you never felt rushed during your dinner. The meal was paced for a quiet and relaxing dining experience. Any questions were answered by our server and he was very kind.

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!

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.
