We went on a Friday night. While the restaurant was busy, they were ready for our reservation and the service was impeccable throughout the evening. Food and wine were outstanding! A definite addition to our favorite Boston area restaurants.

our waiter was awful and that can ruin your dinning experience! Rushing us to order. I told him we would like to order a drink!The food is very good. The tables are very close together. You can carry on a conversation with your neighbor. The summer menu is not very good. Heavy on pasta and light on meats. No veal other than osso buco? Two fish dishes and no seafood?

The host was not welcoming or courteous to us when we arrived at 8:15 PM to check in for our 8:30 PM reservation. We simply inquired about sitting at the bar until our table was ready and we were told we could not sit there.. After inquiring why not, we were told they only had 4-seats at the bar and someone was eating there.. In general we were not welcomed as one would might expect at a nice restauraunt. Furthermore, once our table was ready, they stuck us in some (empty) overflow room where no one was sitting and did not have any ambience to it.. Lastly, the food was not to the level of the restaurant's prices and the service was even lower.. Will never go back and cannot recommend this to anyone else, based on our poor experience.

Excellent lobster spinach ravioli! Delicious pounded veal chop. The burrata salad was creamy and the accompanying tomatoes were delicious. The service was attentive but not rushed. Overall we really enjoyed this restaurant and would return.

We ordered three pasta dishes all of which were disappointing. The sauces were watery and tasteless, even the Rabbit Pasta which is frequently mentioned in the reviews had no depth of flavor and was skimpy on the Rabbit. The only dish that we all liked was the Pork, very nice and tender. Service was very good, but the food did not live up to expectations.

Always wanted to go here, finally did. The baked oysters might be the best appetizer I've ever had! The osso bucco main course was also superb.
Waiter was very helpful and courteous.
Desserts don't look that great and are $$$. Do what everyone else does and go to Mike's Pastry a minute walk away.

We were recommended Mama Maria by the hotel we were staying in. What a gem of a restaurant just the kind of restaurant you would like in your neighbourhood. Great Italian fare, the beef carpaccio and the lobster ravioli were delicious as was the tuna tartar. Service was spot on and the ambience perfect if I return to Boston this restaurant will definently be on the list to return to.

We had a nice meal at Mamma Maria's. The lobster spinach ravioli was fair, the Ossobucco was very good, very tender. The highlight of the meal was the Caesar salad. The restaurant seated us on time for our reservation and the staff was very good. We did have a problem with our water glass. It had lots of particles of something floating in it. It may have been that seeing that made us less impressed. I would recommend this place if you like fancy Italian dishes and a beautiful surroundings.

Business trip in Boston, went to the North End for some Italian food. Google said this place was good, so we went there.
Food was good, wine list was good though a bit pricey.
Service was very good.
I'd recommend it and go back next time I'm in Boston.

I searched Yelp and other web sites looking for a good Italian restaurant in the North End. This one came highly recommended. I guess this restaurant is well known for its day boat fresh seafood but none of us was too crazy about seafood, so we ordered other dishes. The food was good, but not as good as what the high price warranted or the expectations. Our waitress was very pleasant so that was good. Maybe I would go back if I feel like having seafood.

Simply awesome!! Set in the amazing North End where the ambiance is as good outside as it is inside. Once in, you won't be disappointed by anything on the menu. Each dish is special. This is not a spaghetti and meatball's establishment, this is fine Italian cuisine!! Mangiare!!!

As business has expanded, for this long standing No End favorite, seating has become more packed-in, reducing the charm with such bulk seating. Perhaps if lucky enough to get seating upstairs, it could be less impacted and still provide a special night out experience. The food is always amazing.

Any time I visit Boston, this restaurant is at the top of my list. For this particular occasion there ended up being 13 with an original reservation for 10. The entire staff were accomodating and gracious in our ever changing reservation.
Incredible in every way!

Fresh hot bread was brought to the table. The Osso Buco was spectacular and the portions were very generous. The Service was excellent and fast. The puff pastry apple dessert was outstanding. Mama Maria's is by far the best Italian restaurant in Boston.

The food at this little North End restaurant is superb! The baked oysters Florentine and the warm tomatoes with burrata were outstanding and the rabbit with papadelle and the lobster-filled agnolotti were fantastic. Our new favorite Boston restaurant.

A real neighborhood gem. Only a block off of the hustle and bustle of Hanover Street and most of the other North End eateries. Upscale menu with great wine list. A notch above the usual chicken parm and lasagne menus of many of the nearby places.

We loved the appetizers- the tomatoes with buffalo mozzarella was amazing. Figs and prosciutto were good too. The shrimp pasta was not exciting nor was the flounder. Although fresh, the flounder was quite bland and was very thick- not typical flounder. The lobster pasta was small but delicious and had big chunks of lobster in it. Three ravioli total but the were pretty large. All in all it was a nice meal - as usual - but could not give it a 5 this time.
