Vinoteca di Monica
I like a server that knows how to guide.
Wonderful dinner!! Fried artichoke appetizer was out of this world!!
Everyone on the staff there was friendly and welcoming. We were a group of six, and I found the seating to be comfortable and not crowded. The food and service were both excellent. Waitress was knowledgeable and very pleasant.
Wow. Just wow. The food was AMAZING, service was INCREDIBLE, wine was DELICIOUS, ambiance was fun and romantic. We had a reservation for 2 at 8:30PM on a Saturday. They were busy when we got there and we had to wait 10 mins for a table. But the woman hostess was so kind. She talked to us for a few minutes at the bar while we waited. A table opened in the bar area, and she asked if we wanted to wait until a table in the other dining area opened up but we decided we were too hungry to wait. Our server was so kind, very knowledgeable about the menu, and offered great recommendations. We had the fried calamari and a pizza for apps, and chicken parmigiana and gnocchi with sausage for dinner. The food was phenomenal. Fresh, homemade pasta! At one point, the woman next to us who had a little too much to drink knocked my glass of wine over all over me, the table and the floor when trying to take a picture of her family. The bar tender and server were fast to come help, replaced our linens, silverware and wine, cleaned the floor and brought me soda water and napkins to try to get the wine out of my skirt. The woman and her family left pretty quickly without any offer to pay clean my skirt. However, the ambiance, food and service quickly made us forget about the incident and we had an amazing night regardless! I would highly, highly recommend. Make sure to ask your server what to order because we had the best meal!
Another great meal at Monica's. We had the Bolognese and Chicken Tortellini - both were wonderful but the Tortellini stood out as something different. The Eggplant special starter was also fantastic (the sauce was incredible).
Love this place! So much variety. All 4 of us had a different pasta dish and nothing disappointed. Waitress so sweet and very efficient. Can't wait to go back and get more tortellini with creamy sage sauce!
The hostess is always so friendly and accommodating. 5star..... Raquel was very accommodating and did a fantastic job staying with us and times her approaches perfectly.
Thanks again for another great evening.
Why would we go anywhere else
Perfect homemade pasta creating the foundation for outstanding dishes. We rarely return to a restaurant two nights while on vacation but we had to go back for more!
Perfect from beginning to end. Fabulous table and Paulo was absolutely the best
First time in the North End for dinner. We went to BSO for Friday matinee concert then to dinner. Great time!!! Only wished they would have had gluten free rolls/ bread for me.
We had a wonderful meal here and can’t wait to go back and try more of the hand made pasta dishes. This might be our new favorite North End spot. We had the Rigatoni with sausage and broccoli rabe and a spinach and ricotta ravioli special that came in the most wonderful creamy red sauce. We also had an appetizer of involtini di fromaggio (warm cheese wrapped in crispy prosciutto with tomato and basil) and the tiramisu for dessert. All were fantastic! Our server was friendly and informative and service was quick without being rushed. Prices were very reasonable for the quality (and portion) of the food. We will definitely be back soon.
We went today for lunch because we heard that they have the best Sandwiches/pasta in the north end.It was so delicious better than I thought! Definitely recommend this place!
We have been to Monica’s many times over several years. We have never had a bad meal! This was the first and only time we haven’t seen the owner running around and helping the team which really shows the dedication of the restaurant. While we were sad to not have her, we’re glad she finally had a day off!! We will for sure be back.
Best pasta I’ve ever had, hands down. And the glasses of wine were much cheaper than I expected! Great value for the meal and great atmosphere.
Best Italian food I’ve ever had! Highly recommend!
Ambiance and food were wonderful. Service was fine (prompt, etc) but server could have smiled once in a while.
They serve pasta that is made in-house. I should just stop there! The pasta is delicious but the sauces on all of our dishes were incredible. They also bring out housemade bread. This place was awesome. I would highly recommend it!
Always a good night out. Food is excellent and the character and the staff are top notch. Our favorite North End restaurant 👍🏻
We LOVE Vinoteca di Monica!! Paola is a true gem and wonderful person!! My food allergies are always well accomodated and everyone goes out of their way to make us feel special. The food is amazing!!
Two of ordered the fra
The food was very good but they really skimped on seafood in the dishes. I had one scallop and two shrimp in a $34 seafood risotto plate. I would’ve expected a little bit more seafood for that price.
The food is always excellent and the atmosphere is just the right blend of refined, yet comfortable.
Got the chicken milanese and it was very delicious! Would definitely go back!
Great food and service
Outstanding veal chop and spaghetti carbonara.
Our food was delicious, our table was great, our waitress was extremely nice and helpful.
Great pasta dishes. G
Celine Dion was in town and my mom’s 1st Boston Restaurant experience
We ordered 2 of the specials and they were DELISH! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to dine in the North End :)
Bread had no flavor and was cold. Caesar salad had no flavor. Pasta was good.
This was a disappointing meal. The salad had little dressing without much flavor. The beef ravioli were quite good, but the chicken pasta was flavorless.
Great food and service. One of the best I’ve been to in the North End. I had the carbonara and it was delicious. Can’t wait to go again and try something else.
Food was wonderful. Authentic Italian.
We were visiting from Nova Scotia and happen to book this restaurant by chance. Food was amazing. Fresh, and filling. Staff was very friendly. Definitely would return when visiting beautiful Boston again.
We enjoyed everything about our dinner at Monica’s. The fresh pasta and homemade ravioli is amazing. The food and service is always consistent.
Outstanding food and service, the noise was so loud I couldn't here my dinner partners speaking. Would recommend this restaurant for food and service, but the noise ruined everything.
Booked for my boss and they loved this place. Raved over the food.
food was very good, service was excellent. We will be back !!
The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. The waitress we had was very friendly, very knowledgeable and amazing at her job. The other waiters and servers around us that had just finished with their table over heard our drinks requests and without hesitation went and made the drinks for us to help out our waitress.
An all round excellent experience and a restaurant we highly recommend!
