We celebrated Mother’s Day at Mamma Maria and enjoyed the most delicious meal with an attentive and gracious staff. The menu options are diverse and the homemade pasta is the best.
Our table was delayed a bit so we enjoyed the bar and the congenial bartenders. This is definitely the best restaurant in Boston for authentic Italian fare.

The quality of the food, service, and ambience were superb; the perfect way to celebrate Mother's Day and to honor all that my wife does for our children (and me)! She was delighted and neither we -- nor most importantly her -- could not think of a better place to be. Thank you Mamma Maria!!

The food was absolutely amazing. The lobster ravioli actually had lobster in it…without trying to cover up by putting more cheese. Everyone noted how authentic the food was.

We were quite fortunate to have the best server there. Enrique was so on point and knew exactly how to approach, and when to approach. His suggestions were on the money!

Enrique did something quite nice. I mentioned we were there celebrating my son’s graduation from college. Enrique surprised all of us by bringing out cake for my son with the word Congratulations written beautifully across the plate. He made the entire evening that much more special.

Ask for him. No we aren’t related…just impressed!

Outdoor seating in North Square was fantastic, gas heaters did the trick. Great ambiance with musicians playing, according, violin almost felt like being back in Italy.

One of the loveliest North End restaurants, whether indoors in a classic townhouse, or outdoors on charming North Square. Service impeccable yet warm and personal. Cuisine outstanding: special additions to the menu according to the season: local fish, oysters, vegetables, homemade pastas and desserts. Outstanding wine list, with great selections at every price point. Inventive as well as classic cocktails. We live in the neighborhood and have many, many good restaurants to chose from. Mamma Maria’s is our hands-down favorite.

I was looking forward to taking my dad to this place during a weekend visit. Mamma Maria was well recommended and the reviews were very good.

The ambiance and service are very good, I liked the setting and our waiter. We order a beer, a gin & tonic, and a scotch to begin with. Afterward, we ordered a glass of wine following our waiter's recommendation (incredibly good).

Our main disappointment was the food. We had the truffle carpaccio and the grilled octopus to start. Carpaccio was pretty good and different while the octopus was very average.

For the main course, we had two rabbit pasta and lobster pasta. They were highly uninspiring, I had to ask the waiter for more cheese just to taste something out of my rabbit pasta.

Overall, great wine, ambiance, and good service are not enough if the food is not at the right level, especially for a +$100 per person meal. I won't be coming back.

There is a new atmosphere here because of Covid. But it couldn't be better! The Service and the food was as excellent as it always was, even better.
We sat upstairs at a window with a View of the NorthEnd and Plexiglass between tables.
Our food, an appetizer of Octopus and Squid was the best I have had any where in Boston. The main courses of Rabbit Pasta and Halibut could not have been better. It was a Very Very good experience after a long wait to attend this fabulous restaurant after such a long wait!

We’re so glad Mamma Maria’s is back after their COVID pause!! We booked a table as soon as we heard they were reopening. Feels like the same super high quality place - delicious food and lovely ambiance - with notable health enhancements - especially impressive is their newly installed air exchange system - a major investment to ensure a low-risk environment. Highly recommended for high-end Italian food!

Every time we are in Boston we come here. This time we brought our 20 month old granddaughter and the staff was awesome with her.
Excellent social distancing plan- felt very safe.
Food is always outstanding- and this was no different.
