Great food, only a slight hiccup in time for getting our food, beautiful atmosphere outside
Had a great time at Saraceno! The service was superb and the food was delicious.
Absolutely amazing as always! Great service, fantastic ambience and phenomenal food!
This is my husband and my favorite date night restaurant in the north end. We have been here several times and it never disappoints. The food is delicious and staff is attentive and genuine.
The servers were not conscious of making certain glasses were filled, plates cleared, etc. The food was good but not great. We found a better restaurant the following day with better atmosphere, caring service and much better authentic food!
Restorante Saraceno's is my favorite Italian restaurant, which is saying a lot as I live in Boston's Italian North End, and now with patio dining it is even more amazing.
Food was beyond average. I ordered eggplant rollatini...and got eggplant soup....a very thin red sauce poured all over. I will say that my party ordered some seafood and they enjoyed it. The staff was very confusing....attentive yet very very dry...lacking personality or friendliness. It should've been an indication that they were literally trying to grab customers as they walked bye. Only two parties in the restaurant at 7:30pm. Plenty of competition on the street. Choose another location.
Another great experience here as usual. Both the service and food were absolutely outstanding. Zuppe di pesce was my choice and it was great. Delicious and a very ample portion as was the other meals ordered. My entire dinner party was raving about the food.
Been here a few times & they never disappoint! Always great hospitality and food. Will return again!
My boyfriend and I came here for dinner up on the rooftop and it was beautiful! It’s completely enclosed and decorated really nicely. I think most people walked right past it on Hanover because it is upstairs, but so worth it once you do get up there! Great food, great service!
A+. Such a wonderful and authentic spot!
Amazing food great staff and even better ownership
Food is delicious, wait staff so attentive. They nail it every time.
Great place great food
The food was ok, the service was slow but the worst part was that they completely violated the government order and sat us inside 3 days before they were supposed to. Not only did they seat us inside but they are not following proper distancing protocols and they packed the place FULL just like during normal times. When we mentioned it they did not seem to care.
During the pandemic the staff is courteous and accommodating. The food seemed to be of ordinary Italian fair. For $27.00 tortellini, I would expect homemade pasta and more flavor.
Great food, service and ambience!
shrimp scampi was very fresh and taste was superb.
staff where all friendly
Great experience! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Best Eggplant Parm I have ever had! The escargot was also delicious. Wine by the glass was a little pricey, but we mentioned it was my mom's birthday and they brought out a large piece of tiramisu with a candle and two shots of Lemoncello! Great place.
Love this place. The food is fantastic, they have the most wonderful Alfredo I've ever had.
Our party of six all had a wonderful time this past Saturday night. The service was friendly and prompt, and the meals were all delicious. We will be returning to this fine establishment again soon.
Delicious LINGUINI and clam sauce!
Awesome food, great service. My date and I ate on the third floor which was just a small, private-feeling room. We passed other rooms and floors that were not as cute or quiet, so be sure to specify where you want to be seated if it’s important to you. Will definitely be going back!
Food was great!! We were able to eat on the roof and it was absolutely fantastic. We were so surprised and we will definitely be back!
Mr. guitar man made Valentine’s Day one to remember.
Owner Frank and waitress Marinela were great and accommodating.
I always enjoy Saracenos. Delicious food, wonderful people, great service and a cozy atmosphere. I love the antipasto and the Bolognese is a favorite of mine.
Riatorante Saraseno never disappoints and have been dozens of times. You can go wrong with anything on the wide ranging menu and the staff always treats you like family.
Portions were small for the price...but incredibly good!
Delicious food very traditional
Nice neighborhood dining in a north end italian resteraunt . Our meal was good, not 5 star but quite acceptable and tasty, for a casual dining experience. Service was quick and friendly. Ambience was quite nice and it wasn't too loud.
First visit to Saraceno's and it was excellent. Table ready when promised, wait staff was friendly and prompt, food was very good. Recommend reservations as the place filled up quickly. Will return.
Always a treat to eat at Saraceno’s.
Every effort is to ensure you have a wonderful meal!!
Cozy and authentic Italian place!
I would certainly recommend this particular restaurant in the North End solely based on the staff and their customer service. Don't get me wrong, the food was delectable, but if you're looking for a quaint, authentic location where you'll feel like you're at your Italian relatives house, this is the place. We went on New Year's Eve and for a friend's birthday and it was nothing short of fantastic. Side note, as a person with a gluten allergy, I was overwhelmed with how good their gluten free pasta was!
We have been eating here for years and have always enjoyed it. However we have noticed the prices keep going up. I am sad to say that last night is the las night we will ever eat here. There is no kids menu so no prices for any kids food. We ordered 1 plain spaghetti and meatball to split between our two girls and they also got chocolate milk. When we got our bill we were blown away by the price. $15.99 for the spaghetti, $12.99 for the meatball add on and $8.00 for the chocolate milk. So, $37 for 1 kids spaghetti and chocolate milk. In comparison, we went to Maggiano’s today and it was $6.99 and that included the milk and desert. You folks should be ashamed of yourselves. My wife and I both ordered an appetizer and a drink for ourselves, so you were definitely making money off us. Charging $40 for a kids meal is a joke. Maybe that is why on New Years Eve there were 4 empty tables at 7PM.
Good meal. Good service.
I would recommend asking for a seat far away from the door. Large groups with baby carriages kept coming in & holding the doors open for long periods of time so the cold and wind were blowing on us constantly. The food was delicious and of very good value. Staff was efficient in cramped, crowded space, attentive, and very professional.
