This is the perfect place for a romantic dinner when celebrating a special occasion. The staff provides outstanding unobtrusive service. The food is perfectly prepared and the presentation is excellent. The wine quality is excellent though the selection is somewhat limited. There is a full service bar serving a wide range of well prepared cocktails. It is located in the theater district so it’s perfect for a pre show meal.

The staff was knowledgeable, polite, and very timely. The food was excellent, including what I believe to be the best veal I've ever eaten. I would certainly return for another meal. Great spot for a date, as well.

Very disappointed here. Wife and I both had over seasoned meals. We did not enjoy how loud it was, how overpriced it was nor any of the food. We would never recommend or go back. Veal was so salty I could barely eat.

Love this restaurant for pre BOH dining. Service and food excellent. Best mushroom soup I have ever had, and I very much appreciate the smaller plate options, as I am not a fan of large entree servings.

We ate at Teatro before seeing Miss Saigon at the Opera House. The menu wasn't extensive, but the pasta and meat dishes we chose were outstanding! The beet salad was microscopic, I'd suggest a different one. The wine and dessert were outstanding as well. Great dining!

This was my first time to Teatro and I don't know what took me so long! I think I mistakenly overlooked it because it's been around for a while, but the food is as exquisite as if it just arrived on the restaurant scene yesterday, there's nothing "dated" or tired about it at ALL, and it's much more than just a great place to eat before the opera or theater (although it's that too because of it's excellent proximity to the Opera House. We had the mussels which were to die for in a creamy, savory sauce, then the bolognese, which was perfect. My date had the ossu bucco which was so flavorful and divine, and I had the scallops, which were pillowy perfection. We will DEFINITELY be back!

Booked pre-theater - far from alone, yup - pre- and post- might be the lifeblood of this place, but it's a tremendously easy place to enjoy at any time. Like all good italian spots; generous portions, excellent pasta (and they cook it just right), great ingredients, and solid wines and grappa. It's a narrow space, and gets boisterous when crowded, with mirrors on all walls. Will gladly get there again whenever the opportunity beckons.

We had a celebratory dinner here for our daughter's graduation. We are well traveled foodies and discerning customers. The dinner exceeded our expectations. The seasonal menu was innovative and inspiring. The seating was very comfortable, lighting perfect, interior- Euro chic. Too bad we don't have much of an excuse to get back to Boston anymore, this restaurant would have been one to return to with each visit.

We love Teatro, have been semi-regulars for years and it's been great for a loooooong time... good food, good ambiance (better in off-season, when not full of noisy theater-goers) and excellent service. And I understand about rising costs, etc. but our last two times, I've been disappointed by notably higher prices and shrinking portions (ex. TINY asparagus "salad" of 6 pencil-thin spears with a tasty vinaigrette for $15... hmmm). Hope this doesn't become a trend as I want to continue enjoying Teatro for decades to come!

Looking for a new restaurant to try in Boston, we came across Teatro, which had been reviewed favorably and was in easy walking distance from our hotel. Teatro’s dining area is an elegant, old-world space. Our waiter was both professional and friendly. The pasta is homemade, and wonderful!. My dish, the eggplant, was exquisite. Good wine selection, too. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

We arrived early, were welcomed by the host and offered a spot near the bar where the bartenders took care of us promptly.

When we were seated the staff took great care in making sure we had a good understanding of the best dishes on the menu and keeping our glasses/drinks full.

The food was beat our expectations and we wrapped up with plenty of time to get to the theater.

Convenient location for theater shows and they are speedy with the service to get you in and out if you need that. It’s a small place and your fellow diners are close by. And it’s loud. But it’s good food and friendly staff.

Teatro seems to operate in a steady, low key way. Not on the hot list radar, but very appealing as a great neighborhood and pre-theatre spot. Our meal was terrific, with very generous portions, flavorful entrees, nice bread, and a well chosen wine list. Attentive, polite service, and very good value by today's standards. We were happily impressed by the overall experience.

A friend highly recommended this place to me but other than the calamari (tender and delicious) and the pastas (ethereal) I’m mystified by the hype. Solid but skimpy beet salad with the merest smear of goat cheese and bland lamb dish that seemed to be missing the gremolata, desperately needed salt and was served atop watery tasteless “polenta.” The service was attentive and the restaurant itself attractive but for the price there are much better Italian restaurants in Boston. Very disappointed.

Very nice atmosphere, area, decor. Food was good, prices were expected. My only complaint would be that I ordered chicken parm but it didn't come with pasta. Just the chicken. I've never had that before. For the price of pasta, I think they could have included as part of the dish.

I had one of the greatest dirty martinis of my life here! And the fungi pizza blew me away as well. Will definitely return. Everything was top quality and well presented. We were a table of four who had some drinks from the bar and split a bunch of courses and were blown away at how reasonable the bill was at the end of evening
