Superior local and seasonal ingredients distinguish our Italian cuisine. Our menu is updated daily to reflect market changes. Our setting is historical and unique. Five elegant dining rooms ( most with views of the city) are tucked throughout an antique brick townhouse overlooking North Square in the heart of Boston's North End neighborhood.

Had a wonderful experience at Mama Maria. Ambience is great. Literally sitting in old house next to other dinners. Food is fabulous. Wait staff is top notch. Will definitely visit again next time we are in town.

Back Bay
About the restaurant
Reigning over Back Bay and The Boston Public Garden, Contessa is the crown jewel of dining atop one of Boston’s most glamorous hotels, The Newbury Boston. Delightfully re-imagined, this enclosed rooftop destination is inspired by the old-world resorts of Europe and the lasting estates of Italy where classic grand trattoria cuisine awaits. Designed like a conservatory with a glass roof and retractable panels for open air dining, the rooftop space feels like a “garden in the sky” where diners relax in a sun-soaked room for breakfast, lunch, or brunch or take in the sunset and starry skies over cocktails and dinner. Contessa is Boston's first culinary destination from hospitality powerhouse Major Food Group, led by founders Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick.

A bit expensive in my opinion but the food is out of this world! The burrata, the mushrooms, the octopus and the Crema Di Boston were our absolute favorites!

About the restaurant
BarCa is defined as a fine dining restaurant: signature cuisine, served informally in a sophisticated environment. It aims to be an innovative space, not only with regard to the approaches it proposes, but also by simplifying and breaking some basic rules of the service, which is rigorous but relaxed.

For Luis Bettencourt, and Rosa Bettencourt there is only good cuisine and bad cuisine. Yours defines it as a cuisine of flavor: refined taste, perfect technique and excellent product. The basis of its gastronomic philosophy lies in its influences and references: travel around the world, passion for Africa, knowledge of traditional Portuguese cuisine, life in Portugal!

Great experience at 53 Chop last night. Boston steakhouse experience without the drive to Boston. Not an inexpensive night out but well worth the price. Look forward to returning and to their terrific wine dinners.
