The restaurant was very charming, modern feel inside. The service was great, as was the food. My boyfriend and I split the Burrata Bruschetta, He got the Lobster Fettuccine, I got the Gnocchi di Spanaci, they were both delicious!
Our waitress Annina was great and both knowledgeable and helpful ordering.. love the restaurant have been quite a few times we will return
Waitress great! Service excellent. Food good
Monica's is one of my favorite places I always go back to! Love every dish here!!!
Best place in the north end. This has becomes my families go to place.
Very pleasant outdoor dining. A bit odd to sit on the street but it is a quiet street and Monica's does a nice job. Food is outstanding and service was attentive and friendly.
Our server Kalynn was very attentive, friendly and pleasant! The food was very delicious - all 5 members of our party were satisfied with their meals. I believe the food runner was one of the owners - he was very engaging and entertaining - an absolute bonus to the already positive dining experience. We will definitely reserve at Monica's again!
Service was not what it use to be was a but disappointed.
Recommended by a friend. Great food and drinks! Patio and indoor seating available!
Great spot. Frankie is the man and oozes quality
Such a great experience. Went twice last week: once for work, once with friends. Both times the food was so good and for the right price. The house wine (Cab) is so good for 42$ a bottle, keep that forever. We will always come back for great value. They also allowed us to order off the menu for anything we wanted. We will be back!
We had such a wonderful dinner with friends on Friday night! (9/2/2020). We sat inside and the tables were socially distant. We felt safe and comfortable. And the food was fantastic! Inside was air conditioned and the noise level was so low we actually had great conversations at our table! Always a favorite of ours. Will never miss a trip to the area without going to Monica’s for dinner!
My favorite restaurant ever. Love watching the chef and staff. Food is delicious.
The service was amazing. The waitress was proactive and very pleasant. She was training someone and that person is going to be great. The food was wonderful. Ate outside and it was definitely entertaining and unfortunately noisy but not your fault.
Outstanding! Food is superb! Homemade pasta prepared perfectly. I'm from Chicago but will go out of my way to go back. Highly recommended!
Nice patio dining away from the crowds of Hanover Street (but just around the corner). Service was excellent. Appetizers were really good. Dinner was just OK but maybe that is because I ate too many yummy appetizers! I would definitely go again.
Our server was lovely
Monica's Trattoria continues to be the epitome of the Boston North End dining experience. The owners, host and hostesses, servers, and chef were all extremely welcoming and constantly available to each table. Definitely highly recommend. My teenage son loved everything as well.
Awesome food and our server Rachel was very nice.
Rachel was amazing and attentive and kept our drinks full. Oh yeah good was awesome too
Dinning in the age of Covid-19 is a challenge. Monica's was an okay Italian restaurant. The place was mostly empty because of the virus restrictions on dinning.
The food was average. While the tomato sauce on my pasta was delicious, the pasta wasn't as al dente as I would have liked. My wife's scallop dish was also delicious--scallops perfectly cooked. The salad was very good and while the lemon cake was really good, the tiramisu was just average. Service was very good. All and all it was a nice meal.
I should note it was our anniversary and we were greeted with two glasses of prosecco. Nice touch.
Excellent food. Carbonara is a must have. Antipasto is the go too appetizer. Nice to sit outside.
Wonderful night! Great job at keeping COVID safe. Thank you.
One of the best restaurants in the North End. Great food, outside dining is fantastic as it is on a quiet street compared to Salem and Hanover.
This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. The food is fantastic and the wait staff are wonderful. It is small and noisy but worth it!
Great food, but noisy and close quarters. We went for an anniversary dinner and didn’t realize how close we would be to our fellow diners. Not really the best place for a quiet, romantic meal, but a great meal nonetheless!
Great start to our date-night!!!
Fantastic meal as always. Can’t wait till they open back up.
Delicious food and amazing service!
Food tasted like it had been prepared quickly (pasta hard) and we were crammed in next to each other. Very very loud in there. They rushed us out as well.
Celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday
Have dined here a few times it never disappoints.
The food was excellent and I thought our waiter was great. However, we felt we were getting rushed out the door a bit with the way they tried to move our order along. It was Valentine's Day and we really wanted to relax and enjoy the evening. Not sure if it was because of the sheer amount of people out for dates that night, but it did bother us a bit and likely will make us not want to try them again despite the food being really good.
This was the best Italian food we've had in a very long time or maybe in our lives. It was phenomenal. Service was attentive yet approachable and not too overzealous. Food was impeccable and a major highlight.
Amazing! The atmosphere and the food are we exceptional.
Great food & service - perfect killer north end place- it’s loud and tight but not unlike most places in the north end. We will be back
We had a great seat by the window and the whole experience was what you go to the North End for. The food was great and the price was not cheap but definitely worth it.
Food was delicious, drinks were expensive, we sat on the bar side of the restaurant which was quite loud... overall great experience!
Nice to get off Hanover and Salem streets and enjoy a good meal. Very cool interior with an open kitchen, great food, friendly staff.
Great food that’s cooked to order would highly recommend
