Best of Boston

2001 Best Italian Restaurant


Ah, civility—a welcome change on a street known for interminable lines and cutthroat competition for tables on Saturday nights. Maurizio’s is intimate but not stuffy, the kind of restaurant where you know you’re guaranteed perfect ambience. You even get a complimentary glass of bubbly as soon as you sit down. And then there’s the food—Italian, delicious, and democratic. From the rack of lamb in Chianti wine sauce to the grilled tuna, there’s something for everyone.
