Trattoria di Monica is located in the heart of Boston's North End. At the corner of Prince and Salem Streets, you will find this small 25 seat candlelit dining room with colorful walls and original artwork. Chef-owners Patrick, Frank, and Jorge Mendoza serve homemade pastas with an imaginative twist, prepared with locally grown produce, New England seafood, and Imported Ingredients from the North End's best salumeria, Monica's Mercato.

"This is our second time to this restaurant and with so many choices in the North end there is good reason to go again. The quality of ingredients is excellent and each dish is seasoned perfectly. We have been there on a slow night and when it is totally filled. Our server was attentive and accommodating when we had a special request. Our only disappointment was that they had neither cappuccino or American coffee, just espresso. Other than that it was great."

"If you need personal space while dining do not go here. We personally find it charming and reminiscent of Italy or even Paris dining. We come here often but this last night it happened to be a frigid night and they placed us right next to the entrance. It really took away from our experience. Being pregnant, it felt a bit like they put "baby in a corner". Food was good but we had had better evenings there."

"My wife and I ate here on a recent trip to Boston. It's small, but lively. Based on my experience, you need a reservation. I'm not sure if they would seat more than an 8 top based on the layout. It's great, check it out."

"I have been to Trattoria di Monica a few times and every time I am impressed. The food is fantastic. The pasta is the best I have ever had. The restaurant is very small so I would recommend trying to get a reservation beforehand. The tables are tightly squeezed into the small room but the food makes up for it. I highly recommend trying this restaurant! You will be impressed and come back for more."

"While dining on a Friday evening to celebrate my spouses birthday, and wanted a comfortable dining experience instead we were rushed in a hurry for the staff to turn the table over.
Water, drinks and bread all arrived at same time
2 appetizers and salad within minutes after we got our drinks
Had not completes course 1 and 2 that arrives at same time to have our dinner arrive. The tables are small so we let the waitress take our half eaten salads to make room for the main meal.
Arrived at 625Pm out door at 705pm. Completely rushed should of went to a fast food chain.

"Food was excellent. The restaurant is tiny...tight seating, but it wasn't too bad. The staff was great! Good experience overall."

"The sweet potato gnocchi (a special dish) was really really good. I love this restaurant, although the venue is a little too small."

"Enjoyed all of it! Sat next to two locals who said this was the neighborhood gem. Loved the bruschetta and stuffed dates for apps, then the ravioli. Oh my goodness!! Very quaint, small space, so if you don't mind close quarters, this is the place. But very rustic and charming inside."

"Had hoped for better taste for these !"$30 lunches. Black truffled risotto had poor flavor. The pasta with chicken Parmesan was over cooked. Bruschetta were their saving grace. I might return for the bruschetta and a glass of wine to escape the winter chill but leave my children at home. Quiet spot off busy Hanover Street."

"The food was great and the service was excellent. The place is very, very, very small. You definitely need a reservation if you are planning to eat dinner here. There were only a few tables. We came early to our reservation and they were very accommodating. We got there at 5:00pm and our reservation was for 5:30. I'm sure they probably wouldn't be able to seat you right away if you came early to a later reservation time (6-9). My father and I chose this restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend. It was very good and had the authentic north end feel."
