My daughter and I went to Teatro prior to a show at The Boston Ballet. The service, food and atmosphere were all excellent! Try the Calamari it has a light batter and the portion was generous! The Semifretto desert was light and just the right end to dinner-portion is large enough of two or three.

Delicious , lighter Italian food!
Located in a jam packed, tunnel-like space near the Commons, Teatro serves truly good, modern Italian food and fun cocktails. The vibe is young (not college young, but 30 somethings), energetic and vibrant. We were promptly greeted but seated nearly 15 minutes after our reservation. (The hostess was very pleasant and apologetic.) We shared delicious pizzas (super thin and crunchy crust with sausage, onion and rapini) and a kale Caesar salad to start. Excellent and tasty starters! One entree was orrechietti with garlic, rapini and sausage and it had terrific flavor. (Great sausage is hard to find, and Teatro has it) The well cooked linguini with clams was very good, but had a bit too much hot pepper. The chicken Milanese was perfectly cooked, with crunchy breading on moist, delicious chicken and was topped with a little arugula and tomato. It was simple, fresh and delicious. Everything we ate was fresh, hot, and well prepared! The service was very efficient and quite pleasant, again, despite the very crowded dining room. On the cocktail side, the white grape cosmopolitan was smooth and good but the thyme infused cocktail had a bit too much thyme (splitting hairs here because this place is REALLY good!) Teatro is a super restaurant with a great chef! It is on our “must visit list” whenever we come to Boston!

The food is very good and the price, for the quality of what you get, is good too. We will go back when in downtown Boston.

In town with a friend and heading to the Orpheum Theatre for a concert. Looked for a nearby restaurant and really lucked out with our random choice. Ate at the bar, delightful place, great food, nice wine and excellent service. Will definitely return next time in Boston. Lots left on the menu to try!

Service was really good. Food was great. All the meals felt very authentic Italian. This was our first time to Teatro and we would definitely go back. The fois gras was popular with my team mates. My chicken dish had an unusual texture, but was still tasty.
