Aria Trattoria

Located in Boston's historic North End, Aria Trattoria features a mix of modern and old world Italian cuisine while paying homage to Massimo family roots from abruzzi influences. The menu is built on a foundation of simple, fresh pastas and antipasti, as well as a healthy dose of grilled meats, fish, and poultry dishes. Well-loved favorites like limoncello marinated shrimp, Cavetelli con Agnello, and massimo's grandmother's Porchetta

"My business colleague and I had a great dinner, wonderful food and service, and would go back many time over. While the restaurant was not crowded that evening, there was a table nearby of business people who were very loud, and it made having conversation at our table difficult. Nothing really the restaurant could do..."

"Charming and intimate with a warm family feel. We encountered the owner at door who welcomed us warmly. We also learned the adorable girl who had led us up the stairs was Aria, herself. We ordered several delicious appetizers (the BEST meatballs and each got a pasta dish. Everyone raved about their meal and the experience. This wasn't the right group for the "viaggio" (chef's tasting menu) option, but I will definitely do that next time."

"We arrived on a Friday night at 6 pm and the place was completely empty, but by the time we left it was packed, but reasonably quiet. The food was excellent. At our table there was a lentil soup that was exceptional, and a caprese that was unusual (and excellent) because it had roasted rather than fresh tomatoes and very fresh mozzarella. For the entree, we had a spaghetti with clams and a risotto with shrimp, both of which were perfectly cooked and with just the right amount of spice. Although the waiter recommended going to one of the numerous bakeries in the North End for dessert, we opted to stay at the restaurant and have the chocolate cake. When shared by three of us it provided just the right final touch to a very enjoyable evening."

"We have been to Aria a couple of times. Service on this visit was attentive but not overbearing. We chose the prix fixe meal which is comprised of appetizer, light serving of pasta, and main course. They choose what to serve, although you can request not to have food based on allergy, personal preference, etc. Each of the three courses was paired with a wine. The shrimp on crostini appetizer was very tasty, however, the caprese salad with roasted tomatoes was cold; room temperature would have enhanced the flavor. Our pasta course was garnished with fried capers - a first for us and we savored the little toasted morsels. We shared two main courses - veal and scallops, both very good. We are pleased that we chose the prix fixe meal and would do so again. It was a week night and not particularly crowded, so the noise level was low and the meal was relaxed. A pleasant experience."

"Our family loves the North End and we were very excited to try Aria. We went with the chef's specials and let them bring us menu items that they recommended. Everything was delicious! They even recommended an excellent bottle of wine to enjoy. It was a great experience and a great treat for our family. I would definitely recommend Aria to anyone looking for excellent food and a great Boston dining experience. We can't wait to go back! Thank you to your team for making such a special night for us!"

"We booked this spot for New Years and were willing to pay as much as we needed to have a valuable experience and memory for the holiday. Unfortunately the menu was fixed and the price was outrageous considering the quality of the food that was served. Everything was very mediocre and not what we expected from such a highly rated restaurant. We live in the north end and have been to many places and this was by far our least favorite. The chocolate cake at the end was good, I'll give them that!"

"Atria Trattoria is the best Boston restaurant for those seeking Italian cooking. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is cozy but electric and the service is impeccable. This was my sixth visit. This time I had a southern Italian style style swordfish special and my wife had a one of their many tasty pasta dishes. Both were great, as always. The restaurant is not cheap but the experience is worth the visit."

"This was an amazing find! the food was so incredible that we were stunned!
The pasta was home made to perfection! I had a swordfish, that was a specialty! So delicious!
My husband had a veal shank that he thought was the best ever!
We will be looking forward to our return visit. If you are looking for something special! Go to this amazing Upstairs Restaurant in the North End!!!!"

"Nice to be greeted by (we believe) the owner. Food was very good. Service started really very good, but slipped up by not returning to ask how our food was after we tasted our entrees. Really like the place, though."

"We've lived in the Boston area for 30 years, dining three or four times each of those years in the North End. This was undoubtedly the finest meal we've ever had there. My husband and I started by sharing an appetizer special -- a Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella. As it's December, I was dubious about ordering a salad in which tomatoes play a starring role, but our server explained that the tomatoes were roasted to enhance flavor, and, indeed, this made for a delicious combination with the cheese and basil. For entrees, we ordered a swordfish special on a bed of Brussels sprouts and topped with artichoke hearts. It was an outstanding piece of fish, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented -- just delicious. I had the Ravioli con funghi, which really should be called funghi con ravioli -- and that's no complaint. It was a mountain of mushrooms, under which I found a handful of toothsome ravioli filled with truffled mascarpone. Nirvana for a mushroom-lover. I had a forkful of one of our dining companion's Bolognese da Abruzzo, and that too was delicious. The wine list is not too long -- all Italian, with enough variety to fine something for everyone. Service was excellent without being obsequious. My only quibbles are minor: the wine list does not include many selections below $50, and, although we had a lovely table in a corner of the restaurant, it was noisy enough that us middle-agers had difficulty hearing our friends who were in from out of town. But I will not let these small complaints keep me from returning to Aria soon and often. Buon appetito!"

"We had a great dinner. Beet salad ( best I ever had) tuna tartare bruschetta, rib eye ( great), pasta, and 2 of us had chicken. My only quip, and it's minor- please don't clear plates unless everyone is done! We will definitely go back."
