Great place to eat before going to the theater. The food was delicious. Get there at 5:00 or 5:30 so you can sit and enjoy without being rushed for the 7:30 play. Our reservations were for 5:30 but we arrived early and they sat us at 5.

Make a reservation even if you plan to get there when it opens at 5:00. Teatro fills up fast with people dining before going to the theater who have figured out that it's a great place. Wonderful food and atmosphere. This was my first time and I will definitely be back.

While visiting Boston, I went to Teatro to meet an old friend for dinner. She had pork and I had pasta. Both were fine, but not memorable. For a restaurant located in the theater district and in a city that loves its Italian, I was expecting more. My pasta bolognese was bland--needed flavor. Her dinner was just fine. All in all, I would not suggest this place given the multitude of other dining options.

We had a pre-theater dinner. Having done this in the past we gave our waiter our drink and food order as soon as he came over. That’s the secret to enjoying the excellent food during their very hectic 6p to 7:30p seating!

This was our first time at Teatro. We were heading to a show at The Wilbur so we were looking for something within walking distance. We were also celebrating our son's Birthday. Teatro did not disappoint from the moment we walked in the door. We were a few minutes early so our table was having the finishing touches put on it. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. We started with the Antipasto di Salumi and Bruschetta. The breads were definitely homemade. There was enough for the 4 of us to nosh while enjoying our cocktails. Our guests had a late lunch so they split an order of Meatballs and Mussels which were perfect. I had the scallops and my husband had the Ribeye. Everything was cooked perfectly. Our waiter was outstanding; attentive yet we never felt rushed. Would highly recommend and we will certainly be back.

It was a bit noisy, but the service was exceptional despite it being a busy Saturday night. I couldn't hear the waiter when he said his name, otherwise I would call him out specifically ;)

Don’t dine with the theatre crowd. It is so loud you have to scream to talk across the table. The restaurant is not very big.

I was disappointed that the red wine was served warm. Reds should be stored at 55-62 degrees.

That said, my meal of pasta with Bolognase was the best I’ve had. Large portion of pasta with shreds of pork, veal and beef.

A nice surprise, as I walk by the restaurant often but never had a meal here until now. A little bit cramped and darker than I usually like, but had a very enjoyable meal and the food was a good value for the experience.
