    We got seated at a 4 top (two people) in the middle of the dining rooms with SO MANY other tables open (like maybe a booth by the window or literally anything else?). It took over 20+ minutes for anyone at the restaurant to even acknowledge us sitting at the table. A man came over to us and asked if the waitress had come over to our table yet (obviously not since we didn’t have water?). 15 mins after that, our waitress finally made it over to our table asking to take our drink order. Ordered a bottle of wine. Another 15 mins after that, another human came over to explain that the bottle of wine I ordered wasn’t available so they offered me a different bottle. Showed us the label, we said ok. She walks away leaving the unopened bottle of wine on the table. Another 10+ mins goes by before our waitress comes over to the table, doesn’t have a wine key and spends 5 more minutes looking for one. While we had her, we asked for water, bread and put in our order for an appetizer for burrata. The whole experience was like this where we were starving, super excited to try this place… we live in back bay and drove to try this place rather than bracing the chaos that is the north end. Not one time in the only other two times she came by our table did she refill our water. I was literally so thirsty! Didn’t offer a dessert menu at the end… truthfully extremely disappointed with the service. She seemed to be 1 of 2 waitresses staffed for the whole place but we were the ONLY table in the dining room actively eating and ordering. I worked in the restaurant industry for 10+ years… I get it but also I don’t think there’s any excuses. Food wise- mediocre at best. My fiancé loved his fra diavlo shrimp/scallop linguine dish but my butternut squash ravioli needed flavor. I NEVER put salt on my dish and I added ALOT to this one. Burrata di Parma was nothing special. Parking was ATROCIOUS. Definitely would not recommend and would not go back lol

    Donny, our waiter, was great. Professional, polite and friendly. The Veal Piccata was delicious and melt in your mouth. Chicken parmigiana was very good as well, just a little bit on the chewy side. We both ate every bite! Looking forward to our next visit.

    Food was all cooked perfectly. Dining room was loud even though mostly empty. Only thing I would change is the window sills next to our booth were very dusty. Should be wiped down more. Prices were on the higher side but the food was delicious and cooked well.

    The prosciutto/burratta appetizer only had one slice of prosciutto. The chocolate lava cake was overdone and there was no melted chocolate. I asked for my martini extra dirty and it tasted like straight vodka.

    Although a few items we did not like, Food was mostly very good. We ordered several appetizers - enjoying the mussels appetizer the most. We would pass on the caesar salad as the dressing had a weird taste. The waitress was nice enough to take them off the bill. The pasta sauce was salty, slightly sweet and tasty. The steak was very good. The exceptional part of the evening was the service. Our waitress was top notch. She even brought us each a bit of chocolate wine to top off the dinner. It was a very nice touch. Haven’t had such good service in a long time. We will be returning to Magia.

    I was eager to try this new restaurant. The decor is spacious and lovely. the food was pretty good -- nice menu variety and lovely presentation. Plentiful portions. I rated it lower because the service was not good -- slow and they got 2 items wrong. Plus, the servers were not especially well trained (unsophisticated) for this level of restaurant.

    The food was good, a little pricey, but lots of reasonably priced wines. My shrimp and scallop Fra Diablo was good, shrimp a little over cooked, but I’d give it another try. The sauce had the right spice. Shared the meatball app and it was good size and delicious. Fresh bread and lava cake were my favorites. The service was great. Dining room is a little lively. I loved the ambiance.

    My husband and I went to Magia after reading the article in the North Shore Magazine. When I went on open table I was worried because some of the reviews were not very complementary. Anyway, we decided to give it a try. We went early and there were a few at the bar and a table in the dining room so it was quiet and I liked the music that was playing. We ordered drinks and they were very good. I had a virgin something with cucumber, mint and lime. We ordered the chicken piccata which was recommended by Jeff our waiter and the Bolognese. Both arrived hot which is a big stickler for us, the food when it arrives has to be hot, with good portions. We hope the location won't affect the business because we will be back.

    we were one of the first tables on Mother's Day. there were 10 of us. we had 2 children but they do not have a childrens menu. They said they can make just about anything for a smaller portion and less money but we wouldnt know that info until we got our bill. i wanted a salad with salmon. the salad i wanted, they said it could not be made into a meal size because it was busy and there could be no modifications. our server did not ask anyone or check with management, just a no. so i ordered a spinach salad. full size with salmon. Salmon was a good size but overcooked and dry. absolutely no seasoning on it. salad was 1 cup fresh spinach with 1 strawberry cut in half, 1 orange section and a few tomatoes cut in half. This meal cost me 30.00 and i was not satisfied with it. others at out table got prosciutto pizza. it was good Piccata Pappardelle Bolognese and marsala everyones food was fine, but for 500 bill, i thought it should have been better

    Food was good, and service at the bar was OK. However, the cocktails were terrible. It was difficult to determine if the woman who made the drinks was new, but it was clear she didn't really know what she was doing. The Lemon Drop Martini was almost purely vodka, so the usual proportions of lemon, Cointreau/Triple Sec, and simple syrup was almost undrinkable. This was the second time we've been to the restaurant (albeit, the first was about 3 weeks after they opened), and both times were problematic, so they don't get a third try.

    This was our first visit to this restaurant. Nice ambiance and excellent wait staff! We were slightly disappointed about our steak as a lot of it had to be cut away. And the portions of the sides for quite small which was a little disappointing. We might try it one more time but there are other restaurants we can get more food and just as nice ambience for less $$.

    The place was nice overall, clean, neat, not too loud (like I read on some reviews, but this also depends on the day and time you go) our server was great. I gave it 3-4 starts just because I’m a huge fan of lobster Mac, and there was about a pound of pasta to an ounce of lobster, someone on my party ordered the salmon with the veggies and the whole thing was overly overly cooked. The rest of the meals were good, as well as the dessert.
