    We only had one night for a special dinner in Boston. We made the right choice selecting Mamma Mia. We had a private room dining experience overlooking the city and the historical Paul Revere house. The food exceedingly well done. The lobster pasta was exquisite. What more?

    We went for our daughter's 16th birthday, her choice. The experience was AMAZING and we'd HGHLY RECOMMEND. Atmosphere was excellent, service was top notch, food was yummy and it all came together for a very special & memorable experience. We ate on the porch and it was a small space but everyone was so respectful and and it was not too loud except one time when a female server was speaking very loudly to a group in the back and then we couldn't hear ourselves as everyone strove to talk over her. Calmed back down thankfully. Would definitely recommend and we look forward to coming back.

    While nothing was glaringly bad, it also wasn't overly great, which I think is a bit problematic at this price point. Of the things we ordered (carpaccio, burrata, pasta with rabbit that was split, the fluke, and the cornish hen, along with a bottle of wine) only the carpaccio stood out. Again, nothing was bad, but we were not wowed by anything either, outside of our server, Emer, who was wonderful. Fair or unfair, when we spend over $300 (tip included) we hope to be wowed at least once or twice. As a comparison, our go to Italian restaurant is in Cambridge, and each time we have been there we are blown away at the quality of the food, the presentation, and the service, and they are at a similar price point to Mamma Maria. We had reserved bar seating but when we arrived we were told we couldn't sit at the bar and were given a table instead. Not sure why that was, and we weren't given a reason. We were not upset by this, but still would have preferred bar seating, as the restaurant itself is pretty cramped. I hope this is helpful, and I certainly don't share any of this to be disrespectful in any way, as I'm sure they all work very hard.

    Mamma Maria’s is a true neighborhood gem in the North End: the level of service and hospitality here, the quality of seasonal ingredients reflected in the menu, and the exceptional craftsmanship from the cocktails to tiramisu all made for a memorable dining experience. Had the baked oysters, the white truffle tagliatelle - WOW.Just. Wow - Also: the signature Osso Buco was swoon-worthy. Thank you Phoebe, Moe and staff.

    A wonderful North End experience. Seated on time and our server Luis couldn’t have been more gracious. We both had the baked oysters. A take on Rockefeller style but the oysters are huge and cooked with Prosecco. Incredible. My wife had the venison with polenta and I the clam and scallop pasta. Both to die for. As we were celebrating birthdays a courtesy penna cotta was delivered. A nice touch.

    Our experience at Mamma Maria was just ok. We watched everyone around us including people that ordered well after us get their food. I know there is an art to the food delivery, it just didn’t feel good. We had to order extra bread and olives to fill the void. The place is super tiny. Literally we could hear the full conversation of the tables to the left and right of us. Getting up and out of your seat is a challenge because you’re afraid your going to brush up against the next table. My son wanted to dine in a Michelin star restaurant. Overall the food was good but I’ve had better dining experiences.

    Mamma Maria was one of the dining highlights of our trip to Massachusetts. The atmosphere and service is elegant and traditional. The type of place to go when you want to dress up. The entrees of lamb 3 ways and venison 2 ways were excellent quality meat and prepared deliciously. The pappardelle with rabbit was tender and full of flavor. Also had an excellent bottle of syrah for a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

    We celebrated my mom's 87th birthday in the intimate room on the 2nd floor. he experience was top notch - from the hostess, to the maitre'd who clearly had read our request on opentable and knew what we were celebrating, to the 2 gentlemen who bused our table and offered to take photos of the family, to Rafael, our exquisite server who was personable, professional, detail-oriented and overall a 10! My parents are approaching 90 years old, and the staff was lovely in looking after them, holding a hand out to help them up the steep flight of stairs, etc. One server who happened to be from Serbia recognized what we were speaking and went out of our way to say hello when we entered - we felt right at home from the start. While we have dined here before and will come back again, here are a few comments on where the experience could have been a tiny bit better - there was a rather long wait between the appetizers and the main course, and the apple tart dessert was only OK. Everything else was excellent beginning with the warm bread and deliciously fresh pesto sauce, and then: the burrata, tuna tartare, salumi, cauliflower salad, duck for appetizers, followed by the flounder, lamb, osso bucco, beef tenderloin and ravioli filled with squash. The panna cotta and chocolate desserts were good, the rhubarb was alright and the apple tarte so-so. Overall, I would give the experience a 10!

    Our reservation was on a lovely night, and we were able to enjoy outdoor dining. The ambiance was delightful. The service was perfect (timely, professional, friendly) and our pasta dishes were delicious! Last time we visited was 16 years ago. Mamma Maria has not lost it's way. It's a must visit for us anytime we're in Boston.
