Teatro is the perfect after ballet or another show restaurant. We came after the Nutcracker with two eleven year old girls for a late dinner, one who is a gluten free type. They devoured their Caesar salads, pastas with Marcello sauce (one being gluten free) and both went for the fabulous bread (gluten be damned at that point) and then polished off some gelato. My husband and I had risotto with truffles, which was very good. It was such a lovely, lively, post ballet dinner. The girls are now dreaming about returning there for an after Swan Lake dinner in May.

Fabulous food and cocktails. I had the shrimp linguini, my wife had the veal, both were excellent. The girl running the place is right on top of it and makes a mean cocktail.

Besides the obvious, great food and service, they held my reservation for an hour as we were stuck in traffic. So appreciated this gesture as we also had 8:00 theater tickets and didn’t want to have to find another place to dine. They saved the night !

Love Teatro but left very disappointed first time. Ordered steak medium specifying pink not red. Was rare so we left with it and will have to make it edible. Will never order a steak there again.

Wish I could give more than 5 stars for Wilson our server. He was so attentive and knowledgeable for menu choices and wine pairings. Food was delicious and beautifully presented.

The food is very good as always. Piping hot straight from the kitchen. Initial service was a bit slow as we came in toward the end of the pre-theater rush. Very attentive as the crowd thinned out. Teatro is our go to restaurant downtown.

The food is terrific here. Even though it is primarily Italian cuisine, I usually have the salmon, which is really spectacular—caramelized skin and perfectly cooked. Service is attentive and timely.

We had a nice dinner with my husband and two older kids. The food was yummy and we loved the option of the half portions of pasta. The great and hummus dip was awesome. The service was very good as well as the ambiance. My cosmopolitan could have been better(need to use Cointreau and fresh lime juice). Overall very nice evening.

Started with two appetizers - the salt roasted beets and octopus with rice beans. The octopus was salty, but balanced nicely with the sweetness of the beets. Forr the main course we split the evening's special - veal saltimbocca with mushrooms and spinach and a small plate of the bolognase. Yum! The service started out slow, but the waiter was very helpful with selection and accomodated our split plates! Highly recommed.

Teatro is a wonderful spot to have dinner before the theater. Very pleasant and accommodating staff, efficient service and delicious food! The best is one can
order a half portion of any of the amazing pasta dishes !! A real treat and we will be back.

Our usual go-to venue after theater. This time a more limited menu than in the past- but food still incredibly good. Service outstanding, although felt a 'little rushed' this time. We had early reservations 5:30- and when we left at 7:00 place was quite busy. Does also get noisey- so we recommend sitting in the booths or towards the back of the restaurant if trying to converse. Great bar and wonderful variety of drinks.

We came here for dinner. Being from out of town, we didn’t know what to expect but went based on Yelp reviews. The service was excellent, food delicious and a lovely selection of drinks. Nice menu as well. The tables were a little too close together and the noise level was a bit high. Otherwise, great experience.

We were greeted at the door with a friendly smile. The food was outstanding and our server Wilson was awesome. My husband and I shared the delicious meatballs and I had the butternut squash tortellini, so good! The room is beautiful and has a nice bar. The tables are close together but to be expected in the city and honestly didn’t matter once you’re seated. Would highly recommend!

I’m vegetarian and at first I was served pasta bolognese with beef instead of gnocchi, and my friend was served an appetizer portion of risotto. That was not a good start. Then the manager came by 3-4 times to “check on us” and was completely oblivious to the fact that our meals got mixed up… So…

This was my third visit to Teatro. The ambiance is very nice. The waiter was attentive and professional. The drinks and the appetizers (prosciutto and fig chutney and the salted beets) were outstanding. It is the main courses that were disappointing. The special ricotta gnocchi with mushrooms in a parmesan cream sauce and marsala sauce was fair. The gnocchi was well prepared but the dish didn't have a lot of flavor except for the marsala sauce, which overpowered the flavors of the dish and didn't really go with the other ingredients. The chicken parmigiana with burrata was plentiful but, again, lacked flavor. Similar dishes at lower end restaurants have better flavor. After this latest experience, it is unlikely that I will return for dinner but will likely come for drinks and appetizers at the bar.

Dinner before theater show. A fabulous overall dining experience. Food was authentic & delicious. Cocktail selection also very good.
Area is a bit diverse but we will add this to a must frequent establishment!

To sum up our experience at Teatro in one word, OUTSTANDING. To start off, the vibe of the restaurant in something else entirely. It feels like your dining in the lobby of an old theater, with modern lighting and cuisine. Everything that we ordered was beyond our expectations, especially the antipasto platter. Overall, this is the perfect stop for pre or post-show dining, or for the theater lover in your life.

This beautiful restaurant really gave you a romantic Italian vibe. You got the feel of Boston for being in a pretty tight spot but there was enough room in between tables to feel comfortable that you didn't overhear other patrons' conversations. The service was outstanding. Great recommendations, my water glass was never empty and I felt like all of the staff was super attentive. I didn't feel rushed by any means but I was so shocked at how smoothly everything ran. We were in and out of there in less than 90 minutes! The appetizers were to die for, they were so good. I chose to have the bolognese that is handmade- and it was probably the best meal I have had in a long time. My husband got the shrimp scampi and he said the same. We did not get sweets afterwards because we chose to fill up on pasta! (I will say that the offer to get a half plat was quite nice. ) Knowing how much I love pasta I chose to get a full plate and I finished every bit of it! Thank you for a wondering date night!!
