    Food was great, although I tend to like my pasta slightly more cooked. It was extremely al dente and had a little more of a bite to it so it ended up being a little crunchy. Flavors were good and sauces were not too heavy. Portions were perfect. The restaurant itself felt upscale but it lacked a certain charm and warmth that made it a touch sterile feeling, especially for an Italian restaurant. Overall it was a good experience and I would come again

    Best dining experience I’ve had in the last couple of years. Everything, from the arancini to the salad to the fabulous, innovative chicken dish and tiramisu dessert was wonderful. Top notch service too. Can’t wait to go back!

    Truly great dining experience! We went before going to see the Holiday Pops performance. Our mixed drinks were amazing, and the wine with dinner was very enjoyable! The waitress had a great knowledge of the menu and wines. All our dinners were done to perfection and the focaccia bread we had to start was just delicious. We finished by splitting two desserts between the 4 of us. The tiramisu was just one of the best we have ever had! We will be back for sure! Loved the cozy warm atmosphere!

    We had a wonderful dinner last night at Mida. We got seated maybe 10 minutes after our reservation time and we were brought bread and appetizers on the house immediately. Our server Jessie was amazing. Never missed a beat and made our daughters birthday really special with a few lovely gestures! (champagne and dessert!)

    Despite having a reservation we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The food was fine, but expensive considering the quality. The ambience was very loud and we had to yell to each other across our 2 seater high-top.

    Had a great dinner. All of our drinks and meals were delicious, the service was great, and the focaccia bread (a side, but we got it as an appetizer) was one of the best focaccia breads any of us had ever had. Highly recommend!

    The staff was welcoming and efficient. The service was helpful and attentive. The food was wonderful; the bread fresh and warm, the wine good, the pasta delicious and the polenta with honey, gorgonzola and lemon a real treat. It was a busy night the tables were close and the noise level high. These seemed minor negative points since the staff was so kind., the food good and the prices fair, I will defiantly visit again.

    I would highly recommend Mida to anyone looking for Italian in Boston. The restaurant is cozy and vibrant. It has a lovely neighborhood feel. The food is outstanding! Loved the short rib lasagna. The service was impeccable and they tolerated us bring our small kids- although I wouldn’t recommend bringing kids at this location. It is more for a nice meal out for a date night. This was a highlight of our trip to Boston!

    We had a late (9:45pm) reservation, so we should have expected that food may not be particularly fresh. I’ve had the lasagna a couple times before and loved it but it was dry last night. The service was good with the exception that they served all the food at once- bread, starters, entrees. Perhaps the entrees were dry because they sat while we ate the appetizers…

    Wonderful and memorable experience sitting at the hightop chef table enjoying delicious Italian cuisine. Service was welcoming and friendly giving one the feeling of being appreciated. Arancini and duck wing appetizers made for a great start to our BUCATINI ALL AMATRICIANA and SPACCATELLI AL PESTO pasta dishes. Fresh pasta and great service on Tremont in the South End. We skipped desert, but I am sure it would have made for a nice ending.
