I've been going to Boston for decades and never knew about this place. Delectable, affordable choices on a quite varied menu. I'm going back next time I'm in town.

Marliave is one of those places you've always wanted to go to but then other newer, brighter, shinier places grab your attention - well, not this time! We went to a play and Marliave was on the suggested list. During Restaurant Week you never know...More

My husband had shrimp scampi and he rated it at a 4.5. I had about the most delicious tuna ever second to some of the ones I have had in Belgium. It was served with fregula. I finished the whole meal. I recommend this place.

Great meal with family. The mussels were great and the rabbit with polenta, gorgonzola and caramelized onions was great. The acacia e pepe was also superb. Great service also. Second time there and would return again.

The food was mostly pretty good but the experience wasn't. Good caprese salad, good Caesar salad, good specialty cocktails. The pasta and the sauce in the shrimp scampi were good, but not the shrimp. Those were doughy and flavorless, about what I would expect from...More

The restaurant itself is a tour attraction. Built in 1875. The food was delicious. It's like a hidden place. I love it.

I had been a big fan of Marliave's for both business and intimate dinner for a couple or a foursome. This time was very unsettling. First of all, this was a business dinner for five. For those of you who know the restaurant, you know...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
