We enjoyed lunch at D'Amelio's Off the Boat on two recent occasions after several acquaintances recommended it. What a pleasant surprise.The seafood is outstanding and the homemade pasta is superb. There were plenty of tables filled but enough still available, so, despite our not having a reservation, we chose a table by the window. The staff is pleasant and service... More

I was staying at the airport and checked TripAdvisor for what was great and close to me. What a great surprise. Maybe 12 tables? But we got there early. Great staff. One of the best Italian and seafood experiences you'll find. If you're close to the airport or just in Boston, do it! You can't dine any more local than... More

My friend, Jim and I were referred to D'Amelio's by Jim's cousin who lives in East Boston. I wanted to have one last seafood meal before boarding my plane back home to Birmingham, AL. What a send-off dinner! The Fussili Marchi was my choice while Jim opted for the Fussili Angelo. Neither plate had a single thing left when the... More

D'Amelio's Off The Boat is off the charts! It started as a seafood market, which is still next door to the restaurant. The quality of everything we had was top notch. The Cheese Tortellini Sauteed w/ Peas & Proscuitto in an Alfredo Sauce (an appetizer) was a hit with all the table. Our son had the Veal Marsala and loved... More

This little gem is in a neighborhood of East Boston, right near the entrance of the Callahan Tunnel on the Logan Airport side. Very small and no frills inside, but super clean and very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly and efficient. And the food...Well let's just say that everyone in our party, adults... More

Great value for money here. The house-made pasta was incredible - I couldn't finish it all as the portions are generous, but there was no way I was leaving the restuarant without every scrap that was remaining on my plate. Service was a bit disorganized (but still prompt) for such a small place, but they were very busy so I... More

D'Amelio's, which started out as a takeout joint in East Boston, is now two storefronts -- one for dining, one for takeout. The eat-in room is very small indeed, yet the menu, very large. As advertised, the fresh seafood and pasta were very good. We all had seafood, including lobster, scallops, and cod; they weren't overcooked, which is the usual... More

We are spending a week in Boston on a vacation. We use trip advisor always. This is the best recommendation so far. What a find. Everything was suberb, food quality, service & portions. Coming from Chicago, we value a great meal. The price was reasonable, the restaurant was wonderful.
