Outstanding Italian food with great service. Better than most places in the North End. Fortunately we live only a mile or two from here, so we're practically regulars. I can't think of a bad dish at our table in all the years we've gone. For an appetizer we always get the calamari fritti and toasted ravioli. The Veal Saltimbocca is... More

We were staying in Boston for a weekend and found this restaurant on TripAdvisor after visiting Boston College. We were greeted by friendly staff and a clean atmosphere. The food was awesome, especially the Marinara sauce. Next time I'm in Boston, I will definitely return to Fiorella's.

I was so craving some parm and spaghetti and mom mentioned this place. My dad when he was alive loved to eat there. So off we want and I am glad we did. Good service. Good food. Reasonable prices would definitely go back

Sat outside on a warm summer night and enjoyed a glass of grenache. Was very impressed with the food - from the excellent flatbread with their signature marinara sauce, the Misto app sampler with toasted ravioli, stuffed peppers parmigiana & calamari fritti, served with MORE marinara sauce, and the chicken gnocchi fra diavolo bathed in, you know it, marinara sauce!...

Complementary valet parking on a Wednesday early evening somewhere in suburban Newtonville - and they need it despite of a sizable parking lot! ... if that isn't a giveaway that you just discovered a local favorite! They don't deliver, don't take reservations for parties <6, don't seat you unless your party is complete - they don't have to, because this... More

We dined at Fiorella's with friends who live in the area and are familiar with the restaurant. We were not disappointed! Our wait time on a busy Sunday night was quite short, the service was efficient without being overbearing, and the food was excellent. The scallops limoncello and shrimp scampi were wonderful, and served piping hot. We also enjoyed the... More

Went there with two friends and found the place warm, good food at reasonable prices and good portion sizes. The hostess sat us right away and the server was friendly and knew the menu and ingredients extremely well. We all found the food presentation good, and served at the proper temperature and portions were very generous. Our bill with appetizers,... More

This is our go-to place for elegant Italian dining in Newton. No reservations accepted here, because the place is always packed. But we've never had an unacceptably long wait that I can remember. Staff is friendly, helpful, accommodating. Full bar.

I love Fiorella's. However, it has really changed since the expansion. Sometimes bigger is not always better. There is a really nice bar now where you can wait for your table. I hate how they will not seat your party until everyone has arrived. We had a party of 10 and only one person was not there yet and they... More
