when you go to the north end you expect to walk into any restaurant and have a satisfying meal-which is the case 99% of the time. that 1% is maurizio's. I am no gourmet chef but I can make better food at home. Not only is the food subpar but the service is poor. Ordered the gnocchi and received the broccoli rabe dish. When I told the waitress/owner that I didnt order the broc. rabe she got defensive and demanded that I did. All in all, dont go there. All the previous reviews must be written by owners or friends of the owner because there is no possible way this place can be perceived as "good food"

While waiting for a delayed plane from Logan to Florida we decided to lunch in the North End. We stumbled upon Maurizio's and really enjoyed it. Lobster , Corn and Sweet Potato Chowder (delicious); Calamari Fritti (loved that the breaded and fried the cherry peppers too); and Involtine alla Melanzane. This I liked too but the sun dried tomatoes were a little prominent in flavor and did not enhance the filling texturally. I would have perhaps added toasted pignoli for texture. The sauce on top had all of the delicious tomato flavor the dish needed. Tiny crowded table but a real treat for lunch.

Dinner with a large party; One person had a food restrfiction; Owner refused to substitute a vegetable. An arrogant man.... Will not return again nor recommend it to others... Also terribly overpriced...

After 6 years of living in Boston, and going to the North End in search of delicious Italian food, I have to deem Maurizio's the best. I am amazed that the restaurant is not packed every night, but all the better for those of us willing to make the walk up Hanover St. They serve wonderful bread with real olive oil before your meal arrives, and the seasonally changing menu offers new delicious surprises with each visit. They always have more than one vegetarian dish. Their meals are filling without being overwhelming, and are a great value. Don't wait in line for their many competitors that serve uncreative Italian food that just about anyone could cook themselves. Eat at Maurizio's the next time you're in the North End!

The best Italian food in Boston! Maurizio, the chef cooks up some truly delicious dishes. The best Frutti di Mare I have ever had! I can't believe more people don't know about this place! My wife and I have been dining here for years and have never been disappointed. It's intimate, not pretentious, service is great. It's like dining is your good friend's home. Some really nice, affordable wines as well.
