    Living in the North End for 35 years, I've dined at Mama Maria's many times over the years. Our experience was just ok. A few of our food items were outstanding, the Oysters Rockefeller and the pesto served with the bread. All entress were lackluster and disappointing, especially my lobster entree which was incredibly salty, inedible and removed from my bill. I spent close to $400 for 3 people and at that price point was expecting so much more from Mama Maria's.

    Very nice. It’s great to be able to go to a restaurant and actually hear the person sitting across from you and not have to scream to have a conversation. Not sure why people can’t talk in their library voices sometimes.

    This is my “go to” restaurant for special occasions with friends, family and my wife, of course! It stands head-and-shoulders above other North End restaurants. If you’re looking for white-linen dining, superior food, professional service, and an atmosphere distinct from the factory-like dining one typically encounters along Hanover Street, this is your destination.

    Food was good, ambiance good, service from our server also good but when we arrived late due to traffic the host was quite rude. I had called ahead to let them know but it didn’t matter. I am a little soured to this place because of that.

    We've been to this restaurant many times, and it is always a treat! The food is interesting, very well prepared, and the service is always excellent. I love the osso buco. I keep coming back to it most visits, despite deciding every time that I'll get something else. My wife's "go to" dish is the rabbit with pasta. The menu has enough "standard" dishes if you're not feeling adventurous, but plenty of out of the ordinary ones to keep the place interesting. It's expensive, but well worth the money for a special, or maybe not so special, night out.

    When we arrived at Mamma Maria they did not have our reservation. The host was quite rude and frazzled, no apology but sat us. I actually apologized! I made the reservation through Opentable and I had called the week prior to see if we could switch the reservation from five people to six. The woman who answered the phone said they could accommodate us. I also received a confirmation text the day of our reservation from a woman named Phoebe. On to dinner…our waiter had the personality of a potato, the only reason why I gave three stars for service is because our other two expediters were wonderful. We felt were rushed. My husband noticed the host looking over the stairwell then looking at our waiter annoyed because we were taking too long, he had another table to seat. The portions are tiny, my beef was tough. The value for what you get is mediocre, small portions and limited menu. The ambience was beautiful, decorated tastefully for Christmas. We were disappointed with the experience, if I’m paying 400$ plus for dinner, I expect not to be rushed and to be full when I leave.

    This continues to be my favorite restaurant in all of Boston. My date and I had the wonderfully private piccolo room (minimum required) and as always it was quite special. Our server was attentive but let us roll at our own pace. The food (venison for me and filet for her) were prepared perfectly and the wine was dead on.

    The staff was amazing, from the time to of check in we were courteously greeted and were assigned a beautiful semi private table, with an amazing view of North End. Our serves were delightful, very caring and with cheerful attitude. The food was up to par, very fresh and tasty, would definitely recommend to anyone visiting North End and will go back myself if I visit Boston again.

    We visit Boston annually In November and Mamma Maria is a required stop. If you visit request Tatiana as your server- she is so attentive and a beautiful young lady. We are from the south where the house wine is sweet tea and Tatiana made that happen ( with a refill). Wonderful meal with excellent food and service.

    Only real problem was you couldn’t hardly see your food to eat it. Was sat at the second floor side room.. enclosed porch. Couple wall sconces out there and if you didn’t have one over your table you had to struggle to see. Not just our table at least every other one was pulling out phone turning in the flashlight to see what they were eating!! First part of enjoying a dish is visually!!
