The first place we visited after flying for 7 hours! The staff were so helpful and friendly, our server, Dawson, couldn't have done enough. Finding us a table, suggesting food and talking to us about football! The food was up there with the best Italian food I've ever tried. We're only in Boston for 3 days but I want to... More

Started with the Maggiano's salad (crispy prosciutto, blue cheese, red onions, lettuce & a light house dressing). Next was the Chef KB's Lobster Carbonara (spaghetti, bacon, garlic cream sauce, snap peas). Lots of lobster & not an overpowering garlic taste. I finished with the mini dessert sampler (Apple crostada, Gigi's Butter Cake, Creme Brûlée, NY Style Cheese Cake, Tiramisu)....WOW! The... More

Located near the Boston Common this is a warm and welcoming venue to grab a quick lunch. There is a very nice menu including many specials. All the great Italian dishes are represented on the menu. Cozy booths or tables if you wish. A decent wine list if you care for a glass. Servers are efficient and friendly. Noise level... More

I went to Maggiano's for carb loading before the Boston Marathon. The menu was set up as a fixed price and they brought a lot of food - way too much for the group. The food was pretty bland, and the focus seemed to be quantity, not quality. I felt that they should have offered options where we could order... More

Our first time to this restaurant for early dinner before seeing a show at the Wang center Great food and service was exceptional! The problem was a large party approx. 20 young ladies who were having a bachelorette party, they became increasingly more inappropriate, chugging wine and alcohol, wearing male parts necklaces, male part cutouts sticking in their hair and...

We visited here on our second night in Boston and we were not disappointed. Friendly staff upon arrival and quick service. We ordered a small Caesar salad to start which we shared and it was more than enough and you are given bread also. Our mains were a pappardelle pasta and I had moms lasagne both were fantastic and the... More

Walking in the near by Boston Commons and feeding squirrels! Boston is the best walking city. Fenway Park is an easy walk and Commonwealth Avenue very scenic

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
