Locally caught crispy calamari with pickled chili peppers and smokey tomato vinaigrette
Bolognese da Abruzzo
Handmade Taglitelle pasta prepared with a typical abbruzzese style veal and beef ragout, enriched with pancetta and tomato
Frutti di Mare Fra Diavolo
Handmade Taglitelle pasta tossed with local lobster, Cape Cod littleneck clams, scallops, and shrimp finished in a spicy white wine San Marzano tomato broth
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.
Arya was Amaizing. Went there with my wife for first night out in Boston.
Got there early so we were seated at the window. Windows open looking down on the street. Food was excellent. Service excellent. Highly recommend.
Amazing service, wait staff, ambiance...food out of this world!
Will recommend to business clients and friends
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.
Excellent food and service. This is by far the best Italian restaurant we have ever dined at.
Great date night spot! Welcoming staff and amazing food.
Ate outside so ambiance not as nice with Hanover St traffic. Did food tasting!!! Fabulous & accompanied one diner being gluten free!
Did an amazing job taking care of my food allergies and providing an amazing experience !!
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.
Everything we wanted in an authentic North End, great Italian food meal. The service was amazing too.
Waiter was awesome, food was amazing.
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!
Great food and great service!
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.
Matt was great, we really appreciated him as a server and will be back :)
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
My server Matt was amazing. It was our first time at Arya's and he gave us the whole run down. The food was EXCELLENT, and my favorite spot in the North End.
I would HIGHLY SUGGEST PEOPLE COME TO ARYA! Thanks Matt!
The food and service were outstanding!
Great food, service and ambience. We will be back!
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.
Cannot get better service. Our server was great and it was nice to be remembered and welcomed back as if we were family! Always a great meal.
Absolutely Fantastic meal! Will be back soon!
Amazing food and service
Love this place. Can’t wait to see Eduardo and Massimo again soon. Best kept secret in the north end. If you know you know… as I like to say.
Amazing food, it was the best Italian food we had in the North End
The best in the north end
We had a really excellent time at Arya! The outdoor seating was lovely apart from the trash bag that was next to our table.
The service was incredible and our food was so tasty!
Matt and the whole team at Arya not only have the best food but, make it a great dining experience!!!
First time eating at Arya’s.. we were blown away how delicious it was. Will definitely be back!
Best place to go in the north end.
Fantastic food. Incredible service and hospitality.
Had a great experience bringing my girlfriend to dinner for her birthday. We will be back!
Food and service were excellent!
Lovely meal and great service for a 20th wedding anniversary dinner.
Unbelievable food and service. Will definitely be coming back frequently.
Love coming to Arya’s every time I visit Boston! I brought my boyfriend here for the first time and he loved it. He knew once Massimo said “welcome to my home” the restaurant would be amazing.
It’s always amazing every single time. I go several times a year and never have a complaint. I feel it’s the only true Italian restaurant left that I love when I home.
