“Superb seafood (even for meat lovers!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2008

On the basis of my TripAdvisor research, I chose Mamma Maria for our first night in Boston (and indeed the first evening meal of our 3-week holiday to America). I was not disappointed.

Mamma Maria is a lovely neighbourhood restaurant at the edge of the North End. We had a lovely table by the window in the light and airy upstairs dining room and the food was first class. I started with the special starter of the day, monkfish with chorizo and gnocci in a spicy red pepper sauce, and went on to have halibut with morels and parsnip puree. Now, as an enthusiastic chomper of all things meat, I was taking a bit of a risk. I’m not normally one to make a beeline for seafood when I eat out (this is a generally sensible policy in London, where I come from), but both of my fish courses and my boyfriend's starter of seared scallop were so fresh and flavoursome that they were as rewarding to eat as meat. I was so satisfied with my halibut, I didn’t even envy my boyfriend his rack of lamb with spicy sausage! Whilst perfectly well executed, the lamb didn’t strike me as anything special that I couldn’t get at home. The seafood is definitely the way to go here - don't miss out!

“Surprisingly fresh and inventive. Decent service. Cramped setting. Unimaginative but pleasantly ethnic wine list.”
