We were just after a light dinner so ordered 2 small pasta plates. The food was fantastic, appreciated the focus on quality not quantity! and the service was top notch - the waiter was particularly friendly and easy going. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return if I go back to Boston.

This Italian restaurant in the Theater District was quite the find for me! I made reservations there because it was close to the Opera House where I was going to see Swan Lake, so location was my primary concern. I feel like I have stumbled on hidden treasure by finding Teatro (although judging by the crowd, lots of people have... More

We had a fine Italian meal, Cobanara and seafood were well done and the salads were fresh with the right ingredients. Well worth going back.

Met a friend from out of town at Teatro because of its convenient location on Tremont by the Common, but was very pleasantly surprised by both the Deco interior and the delicious food. I had three sumptuous appetizers for dinner: Apple & Pumpkin Soup with Maple Crema, Mussels with Chardonnay Crema & Smoked Tomato & Chili Flakes, and Tuna Carpaccio... More

We came here with the advise of our friend. We were so enthusiastic about having an Italian foods but the menu was so poor Italian menu. Therefore we preferred different foods like ribeye and sword fish. Both were not good and lack of taste. We tried pumkin and apple soup as a starter. That was also not good. On the... More

Food is delicious and great for sharing. They have half portions so you can try different things without filling up. My wife and I shared the Antipasto which had many interesting and tasty treats on it. I had a pasta dish and my wife had the flatbread. Both were great and not too filling after the large antipasto. We sat... More

I love a nice place, with beautiful presentation that offers traditional size portions. This place is beautiful, 5-star entrees and excellent atmosphere. I am the type of person who is completely turned off when a plate is smothered and overflown with glutinous portions. I would absolutely recommend. I had the "Scallops Georges Bank" and it was delish!!!

We enjoyed the environment, the beautiful Italian ceilings, and extremely terrific Staff--everyone was tops. The food was fair, but it was a lingering wonderful dinner in other ways, and sometimes the food isn't everything. It wasn't horrible, just could have been better with the two pasta dishes we had. The Butternut squash soup was A+ and the dessert was terrific,... More

Teatro is a charming restaurant with a great feel about it. The décor is interesting (except the ludicrously minimalist 'canvases' on the wall) and it has a real buzz about it. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The food was great - particularly an apple and pumpkin soup which was a generous serving and very hearty. I also had... More

Since we don’t dine in downtown Boston very often, we read many of the reviews of Teatro before choosing to visit it before attending a theater event. The reviews were nearly all positive and after our visit, we are happy to agree. We arrived shortly after the restaurant opened at 5PM and, since it is not a very large restaurant;... More
