    Always the best in food and experiece ! We were a party of 8 and every one of us felt like a VIP from start to finish. We met at the bar before dinner and our bartendar was so on point with every drink and very attentive to us. Dinner began with shrimp cocktail and if you are a shrimp connoisseur like I am you know it when the shrimp has that snap to the bite that gives you the amazing taste of freshness. The only knock would be that with a serving of 8 shrimp, one cup of cocktail sauce is not going to do it. Our waitress quickly responded with more. I had the swordfish over rissotto that i ordered blackened and I have to say, expertly prepared mouthwatering . My wife had the shrimp scampi which looked amazing . She asked for light on the garlic and it was SPOT ON. Friends dishes were a variety of italian delights with barely a morsel left at dinner's end. For dessert, what else but cannolis busting with riccotta. Bravo Stazione staff !!

    We dined here for the 1st time last night. We came from central Mass and our son and girlfriend came from East Boston. We were really impressed by the entire experience. Friendly greeting upon arrival, awesome ambience, greeted by a smiling bartender (Kate) at the bar and our server Caitlyn (I think) was so so prompt, and accommodating. We ordered items based on her recommendations. The bread, oysters, calamari, entrees, desserts, and after dinner drinks were all spot on! We took a peek upstairs at the end of the evening because we saw a large group depart and get on a tour bus. Such a great function space with elevator and private bar. We will return very soon. Thank you for a memorable double birthday celebration.

    We so enjoyed Stazione de Federal, we had a later reservation and it was just amazing! From my generous Pomegranate Martini to the risotto with mushrooms and veal and my date loved his spaghetti carbonara. . . The desserts, pistachio cheese cake and molasses cake with layers of the most delicious creamy filling were simply divine! Looking forward to another visit soon!!

    We appreciated the warm welcome from the hosts who brought us to a comfortable table—graciously turning down the music that was a little loud over our spot (without our having to ask!). Our server was genial, attentive, & professional, making helpful (and great) wine recommendations to pair with our delicious meals. Gorgeous oysters, tender and tasty chicken Milanese. We will be back with friends since it was comfortable enough to be able to enjoy conversation without shouting.

    This was our first visit and we were so impressed. Excellent food, great service and quite reasonable prices. I can't recall the last time I left a restaurant feeling that the pricing was actually quite fine. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and entrees. I had clams casino as an appetizer and it was excellent. The pastas were homemade. Portions were large and the presentations were very nice. Also....a parking lot next to the restaurant. We will definitely return.

    Excellent food, good service, pleasant surroundings, but very noisy. Almost had to shout to be heard across the table for four. I would not go back because of the noise level. Maybe because I am in my 80s it bothers me more than younger people, but my tablemates, all in their 80s, felt the same.

    It was my first time dining at my friend, Richard Brackett’s restaurant Stazione de Federale and it was an amazing experience that began as soon as I walked in the front door. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the front desk. Staff couldn’t have been more friendly. I was lucky that Richard was working the restaurant last night and made sure that our meal was perfect and our server Rozzi didn’t miss a beat. from the wine selection to our salads, appetizer and entrée the food was absolutely delicious. Portion sizes were amazing. After dinner, we sat at the bar for a drink special the maple old-fashioned, which was so yummy. I will definitely be back Not only for personal dining, but will be planning some corporate dinners there as well in the upstairs functions area. If you haven’t gone to this beautiful restaurant you have to for a date, family, dinner, or business event. It will not disappoint.

    Of our four meals one was good, the other three poor. It took an hour and a half from the time we ordered until the time our main courses arrived. (for which the manager did apologize.) Even though the restaurant was half empty, the noise made conversation difficult. Altogether an unpleasant experience.

    Overall it was a very good experience. It started out quite noisy due to some large parties, but once they left it was fine. Our server Levi was excellent! He gave us very helpful descriptions about the menu and appropriate wine pairings and was very attentive. The menu offers enough variety without being overwhelming. The Vitello e Cinghiale Bolognese (veal and wild boar ragu, rigatoni and Parmesan Reggiano) was excellent, especially the ragu. My mother had the Milanesa with chicken (pollo). She said it was nothing special, but it was good. We both enjoyed the restaurant and would go again.

    The staff were extremely friendly. They sat all of the tables scattered throughout the restaurant so everyone could have their own privacy, They gave great recommendations on wine and food. The bruschetta was the best Ive ever had. We were celebrating my partner’s birthday and we ordered tiramisu and they didn’t have us pay for it which is wicked sweet! They checked on us frequently but not too much where it was annoying, the perfect balance. Very professional with a great energy.

    What a great night! Decided to try Stazione after reading good reviews and was not disappointed in the least! We were greeted by Luis one of the managers who sat us, and had a terrific server- Jackie. Everything from the shrimp appetizer to the swordfish, eggplant pasta dish and the salted caramel gelato were delicious! We enjoyed chatting with Luis and appreciated all Jackie’s suggestions. Will go back and will bring friends!!

    The food was good, we had 2 pasta dishes( cacio e Pepe and primavera) salmon dish and chicken Marsala. They were all good portions , not r tra huge , not little, just prefect! Our young adults are super picky but they loved the pastas. It was our first time, it looks like a great restaurant but the noise level was very high so we could hardly each other. The dishes came pretty quick so whole dining experience was 1,5 hour , which was great and we could tolerate the noise. People were having too much fun which was a good sign! We will go there again. OverLl a good experience

    Been here a few times and as usual Food was excellent. We had clams, oysters, veal, salmon, etc All Good. We would have loved to have wine with each course but they seem to have a problem getting wine/drinks to the table. They only have One bartender and Saturday Night crowds are probably too much. After a cocktail, our first wine order did not arrive till AFTER we finished our first course and we had to cancel 2nd wine order because it never came. I think they should get some Bar help on busy nights. Or at least train waitress to at least help with simple wine orders. But glad they are getting busier. They deserve it!

    Very disappointed, so looking for some delicious Italian food. Each dish we ordered had no taste, probably because they came out 5 minutes after we ordered them. Tells me not fresh. Too bad it’s a beautiful place, but they need a new Chef with Italian authenticity!!!

    We sat down and our server was wonderful. She brought us water and waited to ask for our drinks while we settled in. She graciously came back and asked what we wanted for drinks and we ordered. She came back and we asked to put in for appetizers and ate the Marinated shrimp skewers ( YUM and perfectly cooked with a sauce that’s to die for) and the Caprese salad ( a MUST have a with thick juicy Heirloom tomatoes, basil, fresh buffalo mozzarella and pesto on the side). We then ordered the salmon with broccolini and potatoes and the Chicken Milanese with Tagliatelle in Aglio e Olio. The sauce on the crispy Milanese was ridiculously delicious and the Portions for both was very generous. We finished with Tiramisu ( wow) and cannolis ( extra WOW) and they were so kind as it was our wedding anniversary they comped desserts. Price was reasonable and fabulous 5 stars and we might go tonight again. Hector M Waltham MA
