Great food and service. Highly recommend!
It was ok. Not bad but nothing great. The meatball was good, bread was good. The rest of the food below average. Staff is very unprofessional.
Venue is wonderful- been there before.
Food was very disappointing- party of 6 ordered six different meals and each one was bad ( one not even edible)
Lobster roll had an odd cheese sauce
Fried clams over done and couldn’t eat because so salty
Remaining pasta dishes - way too much salt and hard to taste anything else
We had a wonderful Italian seafood dinner in the front window! The food was delicious and the service was warm. Great hole in the wall and it was fun to people watch the passersby on Salem street.
Food was okay- great bread during the meal. Good oyster deals.
Very nice authentic Italian restaurant. The food was great and the portions were huge. Nobody finished and we took food home.
This is the only place to eat in Boston‘s north end! Unbelievable hospitality even better quality of food! You will not regret it! I will be going back often!
Fantastic all around! Food and atmosphere is top notch! Christian, Kim and the entire staff make everyone feel right at home!
Very accommodating for a last minute reservation. Great food, service and ambiance!
Had a 6pm reservation, and was not seated til after 6:30. Poor wait service as well.
Good place in the North End -- very much enjoyed our dinner outside. Food was very good, and their huge "goblet" drinks were a lot of fun.
The food was fantastic, nice atmosphere. Wait staff was a bit slow with drink refills and the check, but there was only 2 of them so in the current climate to be expected.
I’ve been eating here for almost 22 years and it’s by far and wide my go-to. Always fantastic!
They didn’t have a table for us when we arrived at our reservation time. Wasn’t seated until 45 min after our time. They forgot to give us the wine list. After we asked for it, we received an empty menu binder. The food took ages and was notttt worth the wait OR price. It was also so loud we had to push the table closer to the booth so we could hear each other. Overall meh, so many better places.
Food and service was fantastic! Definitely a must when in Boston.
Great fun place with great food! Owners went out of their to make sure we felt like we were guests in their home. Waitstaff was very familiar and informative with menu options & preparation. We had several items, each was fabulous. Everything was sized to definitely be shareable. The giant meatballs were perfectly seasoned like nonni’s! Raw bar items very fresh. Seafood special aka frutti di mare was absolutely incredible with outstanding flavors and variety of seafood! Actually a show piece very few could finish! Definitely will go back! Worth a visit if you’ve never been!
Rabia's accepted our OpenTable reservation for 9:30pm. When we arrived the staff and manager were locking up the restaurant and going home. They expressed no care whatsoever for ruining our dinner plans, not even a polite apology or recommendation for an alternative restaurant option in the area. Rabia's doesn't pay attention to or maintain their online information accurately, and do not care if it ruins other people's plans for the night.
Excellent location, service, and food. Highly recommend in the North End!
Seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked! Pasta carbonara highly recommended!!
Loved all our dishes except the Charcuterie Board. Very expensive for the 4 pieces of lunchmeat and a few pieces of cheese. We loved the pasta and the seafood, lobster and oysters were fantastic. Good wine, too. Attentive service and friendly yet lively atmosphere. We love coming back again.
We loved everything
It was amazing @thiccbuthungry gave us the idea after we saw there post and decided to give it a try . The drinks were amazing and the food and service was exceptional.! I will definitely be coming back !
Always a great choice. Roberto (longtime Rabia waiter) was very attentive and always seems to be having fun, no matter how busy it is. The “powered-up seafood pasta” was absolutely loaded and plenty of food for 2 people.
New owners have redecorated a bit, making the place brighter inside.
You won’t go wrong with this place!
Really slow kitchen. Took us forever to get our food. Others had the same experience. Food was good, not great.
So delicious I will definitely be back!
Christian (the owner) is the nicest guy always makes you feel like family, the food is unbelievable, great prices and portions can’t beat this place!
Exceptional food- every appetizer was fresh and perfect and the dinner was even better! Our waiter was attentive and his suggestions were spot on! Thank you!
As always we had a great experience at Rabia's. We arrived a little early but were seated immediately. Our server cane over quickly with menus, introduced herself have us the specials, and took our drink order. Drinks,appetizers, dinner, and dessert were all ordered in a timely fashion with no lag time in between nor were we rushed in any way. It was a wonderful and relaxing meal. The food portions were both delicious and large enough to satisfy without over stuffing ourselves. It wasn't or first time here and certainly won't be the last.
Excellent food and service. The owners visited each table and made everyone feel welcome and like part of the family!!
An amazing meal and incredible service! The seafood is so fresh and delicious! My favorite place to be!!!
Charcuterie board was exquisite. Seafood Fradiavlo was cooked to perfection. They were VERY accommodating of my 15mo and even gave him a plate of fries free of charge. Great service.
THE LOBSTER ROLL!!!
It's all that.
The clam chowder was everything a clam chowder should be. Huge chunks of potato, too!
They accommodated my request to have a vegetable instead of fries, and they made a delicious sautéed broccoli with garlic and olive oil!
The staff could not of been more friendly, yet they were in no way oversolicitous.
Pretty much a perfect place.
Fresh, delicious seafood, impeccable service, drinks were on point, everything was perfect.
Fabulous dining experience with an attentive and knowledgeable server.
Great experience, the food was fresh and well prepared. Our service was top notch. Can’t wait to go back. Would recommend to everyone.
Great food and nice atmosphere.
After two hours of waiting for our dinner and the fifth time asking if it was coming out, the hostess told us ten more minutes so we left.
People who sat after us were finishing their dinner. Enough said, I’d never go back.
Food was very good, waiter was not at all attentive. The owners apologized and the bus boy was very helpful
