We dined at Mother Anna's on New Years Eve. Found a table on OpenTable with very short notice. Got seated right at the time of the reservation despite the place being full. Food was excellent, service was excellent considering the place was packed full. Can't wait to come back to this spot!
I have walked by this restaurant for probably 35 years, never noticing it. Then through Open Table I’ve found Morher Anna’s. We arrived on time for our reservation. However it took quite a while to get seated. Once seated, we put an order in for wine. It took a little while for that to come. However once it arrived, it needed to stay in the next room because there was no room near our table for the ice bucket.
We ordered gnocchi in red sauce and veal parmascian with linguine. We also had two garden salads. The garden salad was, not good. In the middle of the salad was a scoop of green beans that looked like canned beans. They were over cooked and then cooled. It otherwise ruined the salad. I recommend asking that they not put the beans on the salad or try a Caesar.
The entrees were fine. Unremarkable. The tomato sauce was fairly tasteless. Neither good or bad. That said the veal was very tender and enjoyable. The gnocchi was fine as well.
This restaurant was passable. We’d go back if we couldn’t find some place else.
food was delicious and the staff were kind and prompt
The food was very good but parking is next to nothing available unless you get lucky for street parking. It took over 20 minutes to find an a garage with space available.
7 out of 7 of us loved our meals. It was quiet on a freezing cold Saturday afternoon, but service was great as was the food. We were actually surprised at just how good. Will definitely be back.
I am a long time fan of Mother Anna’s. I now live in Washington DC but try to make a visit here any chance I get. The food and the service are great. We had a fun family holiday dinner on Tuesday evening and best of all was we got to enjoy the leftovers the next evening - the portions are huge. Lobster fettuccine and chicken creation are family favorites!
Overall experience was outstanding ! Service was impeccable - even with our large party of 10. Food was delicious and plentiful !! It was a very special evening. Will most definitely return to Mother Anna's.
Family-owned Mother Anna's has been offering home-style, familiar Italian dishes for over 50 years, and continues its long tradition of friendly service and warm atmosphere. At out latest visit, the waitress was terrific in getting some in our party's complicated choices and dish-sharing right, and with a smile. One of us had what we believe was a new addition to the menu-- shrimp baked in cheese. Superb! We'll continue to make Mother Anna's our "local," our North End favorite.
A family night on the town for 10 of us that was just perfect to celebrate the holidays! Fabulous food and wonderful service.
came in for a Christmas dinner and everyone loved the food. Prices great also.
