Teatro is an Italian restaurant nestled between Boston’s theater district and Downtown Crossing across the street from the Boston Common.
The restaurant is part of the Columbus Hospitality Group which own several high profile dining establishments in the city and like many of it’s sister restaurants, has stood the test of time.
The menu is mostly comprised of handmade pastas and risotto dishes $20 (half portions for $10 available) and main dishes (all $22). The average cost of dinner for two including a shared starter, two main courses, a shared dessert and one drink per person (not including tip) is $80-$90. The restaurant can be quite loud and bustling so one shouldn’t assume a fine dining experience when visiting Teatro, but the food is consistently good, reasonably priced and a fun place to meet friends for a good meal.
Depicted below is the Rigatoni with classic Ragu Bolognese ($20) and Chicken Milanese with tomatoes, arugula and Parmesan ($22). Dinner was very good and the portions are filling enough for even those with a healthy appetite. However, we were undeterred and opted to also sample the dessert menu. Depicted below is the Gelato and Chocolate Crema, which is like a thick mousse and sure to please a chocoholic. (All desserts are $7.)
