    All was good except we sat outside on uncomfortable chairs and at a table to small for our food, that wobbled, esp everyone someone had to climb over us to get in and out of their seats. Waiter was good, food good but not what I expected, as was the hostess, who tried very hard to make us comfortable.

    Great place! The service was outstanding, the cocktails and food were excellent. We had a group of 5 on a Monday night and the place was 2/3 full. Our only complaint was the noise, as it was hard to hear and have a conversation. They really need to hang some acoustic baffling to dampen the sound.

    This was my first time there and I loved it. We had a party of 12 and they did an excellent job taking care of us. The food was outstanding! Chad was a great bartender, kept all of our drinks full. Brad (yes, chad and Brad are brothers, and no, I am not sure if those are their real names or if they were messing with us) the bartender was also great, try his Espresso martini. Paolo was a great host and checked in on us several times. I really can’t say enough about this place. We felt like regulars there even though it was our first time. This is now my undisputed favorite spot in the North End. 10/10

    Restaurant was LOUD. My wife's entrée (eggplant parm) was ok. My chicken cacciatore was not good at all. Our server had to scream to communicate with us over the noise. While screaming, he kind of spit on us. It was gross. Won't be going beck here ever.

    What a lovely gem right on the outskirts of the North End! We picked this location as it was a 5 minute walk to the TD Garden. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We started with Italian margaritas which were divine. Our meals (both sauteed chicken dishes) tasted great--flavorful and delicious. Prices were reasonable considering it's Boston. It is small (one person can navigate the aisle between tables at a time) but it feels like it is part of the charm. Highly recommend if you're looking for an authentic Italian restaurant to try.

    It was good food and decent-sized portions, but some items were on the "specials" menu that did not have any prices on them and were not told until the bill came. There was also a very high upcharge for changing the type of pasta that came on the side, $11 to be exact, that was not made transparent when we ordered.

    The service was great (we had Jen) and the food was even greater! The meatball appetizer was delicious. Covered in a beautiful sauce and accompanied by fresh ricotta. We each had a pasta dish and both were delicious and huge portions. A little further out of the tourist area of the north end but worth the walk.

    Took my Italian friends to the north end for their first time and couldn’t have been more disappointed. All food was mediocre and service was awful. Food came out atleast 10 minutes between people so if you’re polite and wait for your whole party to have food before eating yours is cold by the time the last persons food comes, if you eat it hot then you’re done eating before they even start. 2 people were given the wrong sauce and when we explained they just took it back in to the kitchen and put the correct sauce over the wrong one. Who thinks bolognese on top of Alfredo is acceptable ?! We were then told they’d be voided and brought out new ones. After 15 minutes one of the people assumed the new order wasn’t put in since our waitress never came back to the table to confirm and he just sucked it up and started eating the incorrect dish because he was hungry, when they then brought out the correct dishes but saw he ate the other they took the correct one back…. I’ve never seen that before. Why would you want someone to waste food. I’ve only seen restaurants ask if someone at the table will eat the incorrect dish as they’d just be throwing it out. The other person didn’t eat his incorrect meal, also got his replacement taken back so he never got to eat anything. And the worst part was it was HIS birthday dinner.. i spoke to the manager because I assumed he didn’t understand what was going on but he said “well he ate it” … overall terrible experience. Much better places in the north end don’t waste your time or money.

    The food was inedible. Probably the worst Italian food I have ever eaten. The clams casino had no clams it was basically bad stuffing in a shell. The cacio Pepe was pasta water with and over abundance of pepper and the tortolini was over cooked and mushy. Shocked this restaurant is in the north end.

    Takes reservations - Check! Staff was welcoming and friendly - Check! Served timely and conscientiously given drinks and starters - Check! Price and food quality - DOUBLE CHECK!! I'm guessing many of our neighbors already knew about Massiminos, but this was our first time here and is def a North End gem. If the weather permits and you want to have a conversation, sit outside on Endicott - it's a one-way with little if any traffic. If your party is 'large and in charge' definitely go in and enjoy the music and almost private setting by the kitchen Personal recommendation, get the Scrod Pizzaiola and ask for extra bread because that sauce....

    This is a quaint little restaurant. The tables are very close together so on a hot summer day with no AC this made for not the most pleasant experience. The food was ok. We ordered a pasta special with homemade pasta with a short rib bolognese which lacked depth and flavor. Tortellini Al forno was heavy on the ricotta and not at all creamy - just cheesy. My young daughter enjoyed her chicken piccata. Over all this restaurant just didn’t live up to reviews and expectations.

    We had a reservation for 730 and did not get seated until 8. We were offered a table on the sidewalk, the table was wobbly but the host put sugar packets to stabilize. We decided to sit inside so we needed to wait an additional 20 min. The waiter was very inpatient. Asking for our order but then answering requests and questions for the table behind us. He stopped at our table with pen and pad, we assumed he was ready to take our order. I started to ask and he looked up at the ceiling and closed his eyes like he was asking the almighty for patience. It was rude and unnecessary. Our food was horrible. I had bolognese, it was the worst I ever tasted, my husband had linguine with shrimp and it was flavorless. The bread was stale! We will not be going back!
