    Amazing food and service at MIDA! We loved the Dine Out Boston menu for 3 courses for $41. The short rib and sea bass were delicious. Would highly recommend.

    The food was absolutely delicious, but the service was amazing! Our server was so attentive and made sure to give us updates if things were taking longer than normal! She also made us feel like we could take our time eating and just enjoying the ambience of the restaurant! The food was flavorful and the portions were just right! This a place I will be visiting again! Absolutely an ace evening!

    The food was outstanding, but if you order the pasta be careful as they put a lot of pepper in it. I love pepper, but my wife is not as big a fan.

    Amazing night of food and fun. The service was spot on with recommendations. We started with the Mista Salad, Prosciutto, Mussels, Roasted Carrots. Then had Pasta Carbonara and Gluten-Free Bucatini as Main Courses. The food was flavorful and multi-layered with taste, without being overly complex. Bar service was a little slow for us, but the placed was PACKED and the cocktails were refreshing and delicious. This was definitely a meal to remember. Thank you MIDA!

    A lovely evening. The food was delicious (we enjoyed the duck wings appetizer and the short rib lasagna; the focaccia didn't wow me though). Service was friendly and helpful. Our waiter offered a great suggestion for a wine pairing with the short rib lasagna. We had an enjoyable evening; however, would I go out of my way again just to visit this restaurant? No. But if you find yourself in the area definitely check it out!

    The staff was very friendly and welcoming as soon as we got there. Right away they asked if we had any food allergies/sensitivities which in addition to their allergy friendly menu was so nice. The cocktails and wine were wonderful. Best of all the short rib lasagna was to die for and the item we will be coming back for. A fun place with a lot of energy

    The food was excellent, you can tell the chef really put his soul into curating those dishes. I could have eaten double of everything, we had the mussels which had some of the best broth for soaking and eatting with bread, the duck wings were amazing, the 1st bite is sweet transforms into sour and then just balances, I don't think I've had such a flavor profile like that. For my main I had the Bolognese and it was amazing, with a lil bread crumbs to give it another level with texture. Oh and how can I forget the focaia bread with mountains of shaved Parmigiano that also went perfect with the pasta and mussels broth. I can't wait to go back, even the non-alcoholic beverages were a delight!!!

    food is amazing at first bite but it is a little bit oily for dinner. I don’t like the high chair btw, no room for my bag and sat a little bit uncomfortable when you wear tight jeans. Overall, a good place to go with your friends.

    Mangia Monday is a great deal (salad + 5 pastas for two people for $80). Would recommend they re-think their host situation as there is nowhere to stand and we were ignored for 5 minutes (walked by multiple times) and eventually had to flag someone down to go to our table. Otherwise great experience!

    This restaurant is an absolute diamond in the rough. It's in a strange part of town, lots of traffic noise and some interesting people walking by (we sat outside), but do not let that scare you because you are in for one of the most amazing pasta dishes of your life. We arrived early, they accommodated us right away. We were greeted with a champagne toast for our anniversary on the house, a complimentary appetizer, and even an entrée...say what?! The appetizers were amazing, get the mozzarella rice balls; unbelievably delicious. The insalata was incredible with a touch of mint that worked surprisingly well in making the salad light and refreshing. Now, on to the best part, the pasta. My husband had the short rib lasagna and I got the tuna puttanesca. Oh my word. The pasta is homemade, the sauce is robust and delicious; it was just fantastic. The services was on point, never waited for water and our waiter gave us the space to enjoy ourselves. He was fantastic. The only downside was that we ordered a bottle of wine. The wine was so delicious; they even let us try it before ordering a bottle. We liked it so much that we looked it up, only to find out it was a $14 bottle that we were charged $44 for. Really, though, who cares! The experience was absolutely lovely. 10/10, definitely will be back when we come to Boston again.

    Mida is the perfect ‘special night out’ restaurant. The ambiance is a welcome mix of casual and fine dining, and the food and service are top notch. Excellent wine list and a knowledgeable sommelier, a brief menu where everything looks good, and fine presentation for all dishes. We’ll be dining here again.

    The Mussels were the best ever. Hint of spice with a light tomato sauce packed with flavor. The Bucatini was as good as I have ever had with crispy guanciale and slightly sweet and very flavorful tomatoes. Citrus cake smothered in blueberries but all you tasted was the citrus and I think an apricot flavor. Absolutely fantastic as was the deconstructed tiramisu. An incredible meal.

    Positives: nice, down-to-earth waiter Negatives: food was decent, but not up to par with some other equivalent restaurants e.g. fox and the knife. Additionally, the price point for a small pasta dish was high and left me feeling slightly ripped-off. I’d be more satisfied if they were in the 18-24 range instead of the 22-28 range. Atmosphere is generic but pleasant
