Had just finished drinks with friends, our last night in Boston. WE asked our bartender to recommend a great restaurant for foodies. He said immediately Marliave, and he was right. Hidden in an alley and not exactly easy to find it was worth the effort. A mix of Italian and French with great... read more

Outstanding dinner spot. French and Italian inspired. Service was correct, professional and friendly. An old Boston restaurant since late 1800's with a contemporary flair. Highly recommended.

We just happened upon this place after finding it on opentable.com within walking distance from our hotel. We were so happy that we booked a table. The food was amazing and eating in the little alley was so quaint and fun. We had the Sunday Gravy, in which the meat was so so so tender and tasty and also some... More

Wonderful setting, some outdoor seating with great singer, quaint indoor seating. Good menu, good value. Have gone as a couple and also in a large group--both times great food and good experience.

This restaurant is tucked away but worth finding. My husband and I visit Boston every year and always come here for dinner. The food is very good, the service is top notch. The beet salad is the best I've ever had, and my husband enjoyed his Caesar salad. The tuna was delicious as was the seafood scampi. Great wines by... More

Came here with work colleagues after-hours following a team outing. The reservation was at the recommendation of one of the team members. Glad he recommended it. The food is good, although beware the appetizers are not very big for sharing, so you'll need to order a few if you have more than a couple people. Different people got various cuts... More

Visited recently and had a lovely dinner outside. Our server was attentive and offered great suggestions for the cheese plate and mains. I especially loved the gnocchi, the meat was so tender. By far the best dinner we had while in Boston!

Nice outdoor terrace and great variety of the menu. Clams were delicious. Service was good and offered good advice on portion size. Risotto with green asparagus were yummy as well as portobello sandwich. Place must be great in winter time. Interior decor looked very classical, black colours, old tiles , lots of old pictures

Close to Omni and Quincy Market area. We sat outside on the patio and it was perfect. We both ordered Fish and Chips ($19) and I can say I have never had better....plus...I could not finish. Servings are generous. All around, good choice.

Our hotel recommended this location after just arriving in town and it was just out the side door, and one block down the street. The food was very flavorful with a good presentation. However, it was about half capacity, and our waitress wasn't very attentive, as we had to flag her down for condiments, additional water, etc. Luckily we ordered... More
