Mamma Maria, Boston, MA (4/6/19)

Very good, if slightly pricey experience, this evening at Mamma Maria which is located in Boston’s North End but slightly off the regular beaten track of Hanover Street.

I booked on Open Table and we were immediately seated when we arrived on time. A nice two-top table upstairs (I think this is a converted home) not far from the bar.

Great service starting with a hearty bread that looked delicious and I skipped as it’s not on my eating regime. Burrata as appetizer was a smaller portion but looking delicious and tasting better.

Mamma Maria does not have a “specials” list because everything on the menu is prepared from that day’s purchases. So I decided on the “Bistecca alla Fiorentina” which was a good sized steak (I opted for not the bone-in), grilled to medium rare and served with eggplant, sea beans and spring vegetables. When it arrived, it was cooked exactly right and I dug in to a delicious large cut of meat that needed nothing additional. Flavorful and firm. Yum.

No dessert for me, but I did bring my dining companion over to Mike’s for a canoli.
