Oh, Mamma

A fixture of North End dining for more than 40 years, Mamma Maria is one of Boston's best-known Italian restaurants: a AAA Four Diamond-rated establishment that's been called one of "America's iconic restaurants" by USA Today and that's made the list of 1,000 Places to See in the U.S. and Canada Before You Die. Don't rely on decades of good press, though: Just pay the place a visit and you'll join the Mamma Maria team, given the exquisitely prepared northern Italian dishes, the lovely ambience, and the warm-hearted service.

The location's superb, too: Mamma Maria fronts Boston's cobblestoned North Square and boasts a beautiful downtown view.
