    We Had a delicious meal with different types of homemade pasta. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. The gnocchi melted in your mouth. Heard about this on weekends with Yankee tv show. They were right it was a special place. Highly recommend.

    Having been to Boston before, we were in search of a slightly different Italian food dining experience - My wife has a picky palate; which makes selecting the right restaurant a tad more difficult - I hit a home run! Mida was fantastic, would certainly recommend it, and will be sure to return next time we are in Beantown!

    Could not have asked for a better dinner! The staff was extremely helpful in navigating the menu and suggesting both cocktails and food as we were celebrating a team dinner and want to basically have a family style dinner. I have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to finally try Mida after the pandemic kept me out of Boston for the last 2+ years and it was well worth the wait!

    The staff was wonderful from the time we entered to the time we greeted them goodbye. I believe everyone who came by the table remembered it was Robin’s birthday. The food and cocktails were excellent as always. We will certainly be back and next time with friends and family.

    My girlfriend and I went to MIDA on a Monday night as we had heard great things from friends. We received excellent service from Greta and had the opportunity to try many of the pasta entrees in their selection. 10/10 would recommend!

    A quieter Saturday brunch that was perfect. On the early side of the restaurant rush, but the food was completely on point and server was fun and engaging while also great at giving us some catchup time and space to enjoy a late morning nosh. Highly recommend

    First time but won’t be our last. Grace was our waitress who was adorable and took great care of us. We sat inside due to the heat and the tables are tall and have high stools - might be tough for older people. She chatted us they the menu and helped with decisions. Everyone who came to the table was nice and knowledgeable. I had the short rib Lasagna which was great and my husband had the Carbonara which was fantastic. Nice size portions. We will be back.

    Adam J was our server and was fantastic! Everyone who helped assist on a busy Monday was friendly, personable, and polite. Every dish was great, but especially the duck wings. If you’ve never been to Mangia Mondays at MIDA, it’s definitely something to not be missed. MIDA has provided lots of memorable meals and helped create memories themselves, Chef Douglass Williams knocks it out of the park every single time. Can’t wait to be back next month to host a party!

    The kitchen area tables are the worst for noise. The staff wiping dishes and silverware have no regard with the amount of unnecessary noise they are creating. All restaurants need to adjust the volume of their music as the restaurant fills with guests. Guests end up compensating by trying to talk over the volume of the music.

    Food was wonderful, service was good but requires better training in dining etiquette, especially when it comes to wine. The place looks very nice however we were seated in a crammed corner, so maybe providing the tables with a little bit more space to the sides wouldn't be bad

    Food was quite tasty. Had the Arancini, bucatini, and gnocchi. Pasta was of excellent quality and cooked perfectly. Gnocchi were cloud like which is hard to find. The noise inside was quite a bit loud though

    I when for my girlfriend birthday. Everything was good except that everything time the food runner bring the food she threw the dishes really hard on the table. Also I made the reservation at 9:30 and the waitress didn't give us enough time to look at the menu as she told us the kitchen closed at 9:45 on a Friday. Food amazing.

    food just wasn’t good. got the calamari and rice balls to start- both mediocre. got the bolognese, the bucatini, and the eggplant parmigiana- all a 2/5. Wouldn’t come here again such a ripoff for small portions. Bread was also terrible (didn’t get the focaccia).
