We had a terrific Saturday evening dinner with a great group of friends at Doretta Taverna. While several people had the full entries, which I got to sample, my wife and I elected to go with the small dishes. I have to say, I did...More

The service was sloooow! In addition, we ordered a pasta dish for 3 year old and it was spicy. How come the staff did not notify us about this? the food was adequate. It was warm and stuffy inside.

That's the nickname our table (composed of people from four countries) gave to this restaurant. Everything was so salty that you couldn't taste anything else.

Via Matta's got location and style as it dazzles regional flavors of Tuscany. Sitting on prime real estate in Boston, Chef Michael Schlow dishes Italian with flair and a sense of humor. Schlow's cooking is endearing: the simplest ingredients yield flavor that's sophisticated, pure and...More

The food at Via Matta is excellent though the service doesn't always seem to match. Not that the service is bad, but just not at the same level as the food.

My wife and I went here on Valentine's day which makes this review tough because we had to eat from a pre-fixe menu. The restaurant itself is an upscale Italian place, warm and inviting inside and the staff was friendly/attentive. We both got the arugula...More

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
