We went to Mamma Maria's for an anniversary dinner, and the staff was extremely friendly and really made it a special occasion. From the food and wine selection, to the small touch of putting 'Happy Anniversary' on our dessert plate, the dinner was very memorable and we really enjoyed our evening there.

The duck and veal t-bone at our table were overcooked while overpriced. The pasta selections are very limited. I would never think of going back or recommending this restaurant to anyone.

Mother’s Day... We had a great table, second floor, by an open window... it was like dining al fresco! Food was delicious. I️ had Bolognese.... which was THE BEST BOLOGNESE EVER!! Others chose Sea Bass (delicious!!), and Duck, three ways... we also had oysters, artichoke salad, and a sausage appetizer... (I️ peeked at the online menu, and was a bit disappointed no fig appetizer on menu that day... but the oysters made-up for my brief disappointment!!). Dessert was also wonderful... I’ll go back for more Bolognese & to try the blueberry tiramisu (also not offered on Mother’s Day menu)...

Service was mixed, food was good without being exceptional. Osso Buco and Snails were highlights, Rabbit was disappointing (heavy and greasy). Might return, but not as good as I remembered from previous visits.

The dinning room was beautiful, however the food was a bit too spicy, which was not stated to be on the menu. After bringing it up to the waiter he was a bit rude about it. Overall I think it is a good place, but is way overpriced for what you're getting.

This is not your typical Italian restaurant and all the better for it. You won’t find the “standards” on the menu but that’s what makes it special, with a new menu every day. The osso buco was the best I’ve ever had, right down to the small spoon provided at the end to access the marrow. A nice touch. The pasta bolognese, with its combination of four-meat sauce, was prepared creatively though a bit too spicy for our taste. Dessert was provided to mark our special occasion. Again, a nice touch since we did not ask for it. And though we had to wait a bit for our table despite our reservation, the owner gave us complimentary champagne at the bar for our trouble. The ambiance was terrific — a collection of 4 or 5 small rooms making our dining experience more intimate. A cobblestone street leads to the entrance just a few steps from Paul Revere’s House.
When in the North End again, we will definitely return to Mamma Maria.

The menu can be different every day. Our menu had good diversity. The wine by glass options were solid. Look forward to experiencing a new set of choices on our next visit.

The service was attentive, adaptive and professional.
