Very disappointed in Mamma Maria last night. The restaurant was boisterous on a Tuesday but also nearly deafening in the upstairs dining room and we had to ask for our table to be moved.
We were accommodated but our request seemed to put out the staff and our waiter and we were then treated like unwanted guests at the establishment.
The salad I ordered was prepared differently indicated on the menu, which was then somehow made to be my fault when I pointed it out to our server.
We were quite clear that there would be a split appetizer and a split entree at the beginning of ordering, yet instead of graciously splitting the orders in the kitchen, numerous forks, spoons and knives were brought to the table and we were made to do it ourselves.
Our wine was not served until AFTER we had finished our first course, and it was not the bottle we had ordered (they said they couldn't find it in their cellar)so we were left to enjoy the appetizers with our water. None of this was brought to our attention in a timely manner.
It was such a stunning display of disregard that it appeared the restaurant was discriminating against my guests as they were of advanced age (senior citizens) although being very attentive to younger patrons.
I was appalled and embarrassed and will not return and cannot recommend.

My wife and I came here for a birthday after having it recommended by friends. We were seated on the second floor near a window with a nice view of the City. The wine that our server recommended was top notch. The Burrata appetizer was outstanding. The Tuna Tar Tar appetizer and the Winter Salad both underwhelmed. We ordered the Pappardelle with Rabbit and Bolognese entrees and they were terrific. Finished off with a Tiramisu and cappucino, which were also top shelf. All in all, it was a great meal.

We went to Mamma Maria's for Valentine's Day with relatively high expectations, having seen the high reviews. The food was about average for the North End, which is to say that it was good however it was not exceptional, which was disappointing given the cost and hype. The service was lacking in professionalism and attentiveness. Mamma Maria's may perform better on a non-holiday, however we will not be returning. There are just too many good alternative options, in that neighborhood alone, to go back.

Experience was very nice and had a very wonderful time. The layout of the restaurant is very different compared to other restaurants. The conversion of a colonial house where different rooms were made into dining rooms provides the customer with a different experience. In other words you won’t find yourself in a large, open spaced area. It’s much smaller and makes it more personal. The service provided by our waiter was great. He was friendly and was there to help with anything. The food was DELICIOUS. However the price for 3 drinks, 2 appetizers, 2 dinner platers, and 2 desserts exceeded $200. The ambiance was ok nothing to scream over but it was a very nice place.

We had a great dinning experience at Mama Maria. The food was very authentic and well made. The restaurant was in Boston’s north end and had a cozy ambience, unlike some of the other places in the area. True Italian food, great service. You really get a dinning experience by enjoying conversation and drinks while not being rushed out of the place so they can fill tables. Great place I highly recommend!

Mamma Maria's is always a delight. The sad part is they keep changing the menu so our favorite dish was not on the menu. Also we would have liked a few more pasta options but all that said the food is wonderful and they are very accommodating to special dietary needs.

I am a local resident near Mamma Maria. I have frequented it but I was not happy with my table request being handled. Seating a fifth person at the end of a four top is unacceptable in a restaurant of this level. I requested another table but it went on deaf ears. Having a person squeezed in in the end does not appeal to me. I requested a table in a very good area. I tip very well and when I return to restaurant I expect my requests to be heard. I am very disappointed .

The service was horrible and rude. The dinner came midway through the appetizer and the bread with the olives were cleared and we were asked multiple times if he could clear our appetizer. After the delicious meal, and upon paying the bill, we were asked if we had valet. We Uber’ed so the answer was no. As we were finishing our wine, we were asked by a second gentleman in a suit and tie if we had valet. I’ve never felt so pushed out! After a most delicious meal we were left with a sour taste in our mouths. I understand Friday night’s are busy, but please do not push me out!
When we got to the coat check, they couldn’t find my friend’s coat for the longest time. Do you know why? It’s because it found it’s way to the floor and no one bothered to pick it up and hang it back up!

This is not the first time I have been here but it will probably be the last. The restaurant is beautiful, the food although pricey is wonderful and worth it for a special occasion but Wednesday the service was awful. We felt rushed the entire time. Our waiter made it perfectly clear that he was looking to flip the table. They even went as far as clearing the table while we were sitting there.

Unique environ. Had reservation but waited 30 minute. Graciously offered proseco to sip while we waited. Ordered multiple appetizers which were below average....razed clams cold not in saffron sauce as denoted on menus, Mozzerella came with three small cherry tomatoes and salami/prosciutto platter had one piece of prosciutto the rest bologna. Not worth the price. Pasta dishes very small but the veal shank w/ rissoto delicious and good size portion.

Quaint environment but better Italian available for price point.

This is the place where you want to go to make the evening special. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal in the North End but Mama Maria elevates the experience to extraordinary. It is a high end restaurant without being stuffy or condescending. Truly a one of a kind gem.

What a wonderful restaurant! The ambiance is fantastic and of course the dishes were outstanding. They make a great negroni too. We had the osso buco , the rabbit pasta and bolonese. All were outstanding. Our antipasti was burrata and baked oysters. Again. Fantastic. Wait staff was excellent and knowledgeable helping guide us to dishes and wine. Great location on the north end just past Paul revere house. Definitely will go back there
