    Everything was great, duck app was my favorite, waitress was lovely. I was just disappointed they didn’t have a candle for my friends birthday dessert. Since they asked if we were celebrating a special occasion I just figured they’d have one or something idk I feel like most places do..

    We had the best time at Mida. Our waiter was so sweet and knew it was a birthday celebration and brought us a side and a dessert on the house. The food was amazing!! We had such a good time and it quickly became one of our top Restaurants to go to in Boston.

    Celebrated an anniversary here and would come back over and over again! Mida is quite small inside which makes for such a cozy ambience. Started off with the marinated olives and focaccia bread which were both very good - the focaccia was one of the best I’ve ever had. Also ordered the cacio e pepe gnocchi and the special (truffle risotto) to share, both were delicious. Getting two appetizers and two entrees to share between two people was the perfect amount if you’re okay not leaving room for dessert. Service was very quick and we sat right next to the open kitchen which was such a cool experience. I will 100% be coming back again to try more things on the menu!

    The ambience and the lighting here are excellent. Very romantic atmosphere. In my opinion the tables are too close together for comfort, but I appreciated that the volume levels were not too high to hear your companions talk. We got the Monday special of 5 pastas for $80 for two people and these were FULL SIZED dishes - that was great value. This also came with bread and starter salads which were simple but delicious. Some of the pastas were tastier than others but all in all a great dinner.

    Incredible as always. Sat is at the chefs table right in front of the kitchen, where they’ve sat us for our last anniversary too. Food was amazing. Had a black & white truffle parmigiano reggiano risotto that they added a whole chicken thigh and breast to for me to add some protein. Risotto was cooked exceptionally well. Whole dish was only $55. Unbelievable value. Prosecco and side dishes on the house. Truly one of our favorite spots. Will never stop coming back.

    Although the menu is small there is enough to choose for everyone. We started with the mussels and they were awesome, may have wanted a bit more broth but the flavor was great. We split two pastas, Rock Shrimp Carbonara and the bucatini. Both were excellent. Had a reservation at another place and changed it to Mida and am glad I did. The food service and ambiance was great. Can’t wait to go back again.

    The front staff/servers were very nice and attentive. I simply won’t be recommending this restaurant anymore due to the food. The NYE tasting menu was especially disappointing considering that 2 of the 3 entrees were subpar. The redeeming meal was the add-on mid course and the free bread served.

    We went to Mida for New Year’s Eve, there was a set three course menu for the evening. Every dish was delicious and prepared with care. My husband opted to add the wine pairings with his meal and loved it! We sat at the bar which turned out to be great, the bar staff was very attentive. The vibe was laidback and lively but in a fine dining type of way.

    We ordered the Monday special, 5 pastas for $80, and they gave us 4. The waitress almost had us believe we got 5 but really all 4 of us only remembered 4. The pasta itself was okay. It was like it was from family recipes from another district. Wasn’t my style nor my daughters’. My husband liked it more than us.

    As always Mida delivers a true neighborhood feel with up-market food. I love their prix fixe Mangia Monday which is a great deal for 2, with plenty for left overs. Emily at the bar always points us in the right direction for wine or drink suggestions--and even which pastas are the ones to get that night. It's a great deal and a comfortable spot. We absolutely will be back.

    Grew up in the area (visiting home) and based on the reviews thought to dine here with my best friend. I’m Italian. I can cook. This was terrible. Perhaps the worst gnocchi I’ve ever had at any restaurant on any continent. Good luck!

    I felt rushed to eat my meal. My party and I arrive 9 mins late due to the inclement weather. Upon arrival, we were told because we were late, our time was limited as there was another booking an hour and half later. I am under the assumption it is customary to allow dinner guests a 15 minute "grace" period for a reservation. I felt as if Mida wanted to turn over as many table as possible and was uncaring about our experience.

    My husband had a fabulous meal and a delightful server. The in salads misto was fresh tasting and the pasta dishes just perfectly cooked and delicious. At first we were seated in the communal table but asked to move to something more private which was better but the speaker was right over the table. An energetic vibe with great food. Loved it.
