North End mainstay, Mamma Maria is known to be a romantic go to among Boston locals. Starting with the walk along the cobblestone streets, your entry into Mamma Maria has you longing for love. The interior is decorated with crisp linens and the knowledgable waitstaff let you linger. The northern Italian specialties that make-up their balanced menu will blow you away. The absence of over sauced plates keeps the crisp white linens pristine and your desire for authentic Italian cuisine satisfied. Indulge in the rich Osso Bucco- classically prepared and served with a saffron risotto Milanese that almost overshadows the meat, or enjoy one of their savory home-made, and slightly different pasta dishes like the truly special Bolognese- prepared as it is in the village of Serralunga di Crea with spicy artisanal pepperoncini pasta.

- Best for Italian, Best of Boston's North End Because: Mamma Maria serves upscale Italian food in a setting to match, providing diners with a sampling of Northern specialties.
