We had another fabulous dinner at Arya last night, Massimo and his team know how to do things right! From the moment you're met and welcomed to you table (very comfortably distanced and protected with plexiglass), to the outstanding service and awesome food, Arya is the place to go in north end. I highly recommend the chefs menu, the quality and variety of dishes is superb. Wish I lived closer so I could come more often, but a visit to Boston is not complete without a trip to Arya. Keep up the great work Massimo!
Arya is truly one of the best spots of the North End. Diego was an incredible server and everything tasted spectacular. We will definitely be back!
Amazing as always
Great food! Tried the "taste of Italy" where each person got an appetizer, pasta and main dish (to share of course). Was $60 per person and worth every bite! Ended the evening with tiramisu. Highly recommend
Food was excellent came out potion by portion in a perfect timely manner. Need more room in the restaurant but right now with Covid it opens it up a bit so you feel more intimate with the employees. Definitely check it out
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. The service is always good and the food is fantastic. The owner is very friendly and welcoming—feels like a true Italian restaurant. I highly recommend going to this restaurant if you are visiting Boston.
My mom and I ate here last night and it was wonderful.. everything from the service to the food was outstanding! Definitely will be back to try the mushroom ravioli in the future
We love you Mas!!!!! Best food in the North End! We loved seeing you last night! Thank you for always providing us with VIP service
Service was like family and the food was delicious.
First time dining here. Heard amazing things. IT WAS AMAZING! The menu differs from most the restaurants in the North end which is great. Stuffed my face with their truffle caesar salad, delmonico steak, truffle fries, and polenta bites. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK!
Arya is one of those places that words just can't describe but I'll try my best. Mas and his team gives you the classic "date night" or "night on the town with friends" kind of place where the wine, food and laughs flow easily. The atmosphere is unique- it's on the second floor and very intimate- maybe 12 tables. However you're greeted warmly and seated in a lively, familial setting - think "hidden gem". The food is loaded with flavor and doesn't taste like it came out of a box or a can- the ribeye with to die for truffle fries, the rigatoni, the Bolognese da Abruzzo, I could keep going on - but it's one of the those places where everyone orders something different and by the end of the night everyone's sharing - just like Sunday supper. If you're lucky enough to meet Mas, he'll tell you how he wanted to create a sophisticated but modern classic based on his decades of experience in the business. I'd say he has a winner here. And as for the people who complain about having to wait- I mean this is the North End in Boston- what do you expect. This is not a 60 table chain- and this is not 60 table chain food. So enjoy your time at Arya and treat it as an experience.
Picked up a 1/2 platter of the sausage and broccoli cavatelli. It was slightly cheesy but not too garlicky. Would’ve wanted larger pieces of broccoli though. The sausage was similar to broken up pieces of meatballs. Nice sear. The meatballs were amazing ($18 for 4). Tender with a wonderful herby flavor. The tomato sauce punches through the salt.
It seems like so long ago, but I had an outstanding meal at Arya during Dine Out week only a few short weeks ago. The food was excellent, the ambiance of the restaurant had a rustic charm and the staff was very welcoming. It was nice chatting with the manager as well. The meatballs and bolognese were delicious and I'm left dreaming of the bread and oil as comfort carbs to ease the stress of life. Hoping to return when able and that everyone there is ok!
Amazing food and wine! The best thing about this is that the people that work there make visitors from out of town feel like regulars. Practically like family that has been eating there for years.
An upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of Boston's North End. Massimo lives up to his reputation for the the best meatballs in the North End. The menu is expansive and every dish is delicious! You will be transported to an authentic Italian experience bar none! Mangia!
