We've eaten Italian food all over including some pretty remarkable spots in Italy. Mamma Maria's food is excellent and has, in my opinion, authentic Italian flavors and preparations. The food was kept simple in preparation having for the most part no more than 3 or 4 flavors per dish. To me that is a key and the essence of Italian cuisine-simple and pure with the freshest of ingredients. They have accomplished that goal well. Presentation was top notch and artfully done. Service was outstanding. I have studied and collected Italian wines for 30 years and found our wait person to be very knowledgable. I had selected 2-3 options and based on our entrees he selected one of them that was perfect.
Check out their menu and wine list at their website. This is not one of the "two entrees with red sauce and a bottle of wine for $30" restaurants that seem to line the streets of Boston's North End. It is on the higher end price wise, but as is often the case, you get what you pay for. That is not always true in the restaurant world, but in this case, I believe it is. If you are looking for a special evening or a fantastic meal, I don't know how you could go wrong.
