Located in Boston's historic North End, Arya Trattoria features a mix of modern and old world Italian cuisine while paying homage to Massimo family roots from abruzzi influences. The menu is built on a foundation of simple, fresh pastas and antipasti, as well as a healthy dose of grilled meats, fish, and poultry dishes. Well-loved favorites like limoncello marinated shrimp, Cavetelli con Agnello, and massimo's grandmother's Porchetta

Cute place but food was not as great as we were expecting. The best thing we ate was the shrimp appetizer with capers and pine nuts. The truffle infused raviolis were so overpowering truffle flavored they were almost inedible. The Bologna’s was good but the pasta was so al denote it was hard to chew (and I like and appreciate al dente). We had a great night - our waiter was terrific and wine was good, just expected more from the food.

Lovely interior. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The owner was gracious and willing to accommodate our needs. A party of four, we shared many apps, entrees, and a dessert. We all agreed the food was exceptional. Ended it with individually brewed cups of coffee that were distinctively good. We plan to return as a group in the near future.

A MUST visit for those who have not captured a true dining experience in the city of Boston! Located in the North End, Arya will not disappoint. From the moment you arrive to this second floor location overlooking Hanover Street until you finish your last taste of dessert, you will waste no time in booking your next reservation. From being welcomed my Massimo to exceptional wait staff & service to premier food quality, there is no other place you’d rather dine….

Place was awesome. Food was fantastic and the services was great. For how good the good was it was prices really good. I mean a 16 Oz rib eye for 38$ your basically stealing it at that point not to mention how good it was.

Another great night at Arya, welcomed as always by Massimo and lead through a fabulous feast by the chef, with attentive service by the staff. Arya is a great place to go for super food, nice atmosphere and a team that makes you feel at home. We never miss when we visit Boston, and you shouldn’t either!

I have heard great things about this place so I was very excited to try it. The view is wonderful looking over the North End. The service was amazing and knowledge. Aside for that, the main reason you go to the North End is for amazing Italian right? I do not think the food was any special. It was pretty bland and basic. I was very surprised seeing how this place is highly rated. I had the Cavatelli and there was not much flavor. The pasta didn’t seem homemade and the Sausage was bland and dry. The dish was boring all around. The appetizers we had were boring as well. I just expected more flavor and better sauces. I really don’t get why this place is so popular. Am I missing something? I have been to plenty of places in the north end that are so much better. We wanted to try something new and I wish we didn’t.

I am very confused about what the owners vision is for the restaurant. The location, the small/diamond in the rough feel was destroyed by high decibel level hip-hop/rap music. Forget about having a meaningful conversation with whoever you are dinning with. It’s just sad because the food is very good. Just turn the music down some, not sure what the point is for having it so damn loud?? It was like being in a club with out the lights and dancing

We came to Arya for an early dinner for our wedding anniversary. The food was awesome and our waiter started off great but after about 30 min of being there, we felt super rushed to finish our apps, entrees, and bottle of wine. The waiters seemed like they were in a hurry to get us out the door so that they could seat the next reservation. Food was great but we both left with a weird feeling about the experience.

This place is what you search for in the North End. Greeted warmly by proprietor, small intimate space, great tasting menu and friendly service. I want to keep this place a secret for myself.
