Went with family to enjoy the patio for dinner. We had a truly wonderful experience with ever single staff member we encountered. From hostess to servers to kitchen they really were the most personable and friendly staff. Couldn’t have been happier with our experience. Highly recommend the mussels, focaccia, and short rib lasagna. Come hungry and come happy it will never disappoint.

Arancini were just fantastic - hot, crunchy crust, soft inside. Foccacia was a delicious side, along with the fritto misto. All entrees were delicious - eggplant was unique and interesting, carbonara was a classic.

First time here. Was underwhelmed. They say they are allergy friendly and they are but but have a hard time accommodating you if you’re allergic to the most common 8. It’s fine if you’re only allergic to one or two.

The chicken is marinated in butter and they did t offer ato cook a new one at first. The server snipped and said it will take 25 minutes.

Maybe it was because they were so busy when I went but I’d rather spend the money at mistral, ostra, bistro du midi etc. They pay attention and can cook outside of the box. Best service I ever got was at ostra.

Wouldn’t rush back here.

We had a great time at MIDA. The pasta was excellent, but what really stood out was the service and atmosphere. The servers and bartenders were joyful, singing along to the music, the servers were personal and helpful with the menu. If we lived in town, we would definitely make this a regular spot.

Martini was very well done. My dinner was quite good - gluten free pasta is excellent. Couple of my companions thought their meals were heavy (chicken and lasagna). Service was outstanding.

We were in Boston on vacation. Chose MIDA based on reviews. Terrific atmosphere and location. Wonderful service as well. The short rib lasagna is amazing and my son raves about the mussels. The carbonara would be better without the lemon but is rich and creamy as carbonara should be. Nice wine selection and terrific overall.

I had a small medical emergency while dining at Mida (nothing to do with the food which is always stellar!). They were responsive, called the ambulance, and were efficient and kind with managing me and my friends' needs. They actually didn't end up charging us for brunch. So nice! I kept my bike locked out front and they were willing to check on it for me. I loved Mida before this experience, and now they are incredibly special to me for going above and beyond as far as customer service goes! Thank you, Mida. Hopefully next time I will conclude my dining experience in a less dramatic way :)

The staff was amazing: so friendly, personal, seemed to truly enjoy being there hosting guests. The food was fabulous: amazing flavors, textures and the right portion. Nothing was overpowering, too salty, too bland, all so well balanced and felt unique. Highly recommend!

MIDA had a very nice atmosphere but the food was good at best and not worth the expense. My pasta dish was fairly undercooked. The drinks were great though! And we had excellent service.
