Yuk! Absolutely terrible! I expect flavorsome food made from quality ingredients. My son had the meatballs - they tasted what I expect cat food to taste like. The pasta dishes were bland and tasteless. If you like a big meal, you will get it but that is all this place is good for. So many restaurants in this area that are great. This one is at the very bottom of my list.

La Famiglia's has been great with our group of 8th graders for over ten years now. They provide large family style dinners at a reasonable price. The kids love the food and can't get enough of it. It is the perfect place for a large group who wants a yummy meal with great servers and friendly owners. Our group is usually between 30 and 40 people and they accomodate us perfectly upstairs. We call ahead of time and set up our menu and date/time and we are good to go. They remember us coming back every year as well so the menu is all ready for me unless I want to change something. Their meatballs are to die for!!!!

My fiance and I ate here yesterday afternoon and the portions were huge.
We got the stuffed mushrooms as appetizers and they were very delicious.
I got the vegetarian with ziti and he got the chicken/brocolli with ziti and the servings were HUGE that we ate 1/4 of it and took the rest home. Had some for dinner yesterday night, and some for breakfast this morning and still have leftovers to last me till tomorrow!
the service was great, love the native boston-italian lady who was our waitress. just made everything more authentic

We went to La Famiglia Georgio's on the recomendation of a friend. I won't go back.
The service was pretty poor. The portions are really big, but there is NO SHARING ALLOWED. We are staying in a hotel here while we visit and so we ended up having to throw away half of our meals. I was really disapointed.
The food was OK, but there are alot of fantastic places in Boston, maybe some that would let you share a meal that you paid for.

I've been here a few times during the week for lunch and loved it. They have a sampler dish on weekdays where you can try a number of items for a very low price. The food is some of the best Italian I've tasted, particularly the lasagna. Portions are huge. The place is small but since I've only gone for lunch there has never been a wait.

Ridiculously large portions, friendly service and good sauces make this one a winner.
We ordered an antipasto and we were pretty much full after that. I had also ordered an $11 pizza and my date the Chicken Sorrento. We ate the rest for lunch and dinner and it was still good. Highly recommend anything Sorrento. Just a very nice sauce. Thought the pizza tasted better the next day just because it was a little crisper and everything a little more well done (even though I had asked for it well done). Probably not your thing if you are a thin crust lover.
Great place to take a family.

My wife and I found this spot while walking thru the North End. It has a very unassuming and noisy atmosphere, but some of the best Italian food we have ever had. The quality of the dishes, the freshness of the ingredients, and the flavors are wonderful. The sauce that was served with the lasagna was outstanding. The pasta and sauce in the La Famliglia special were unequaled. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
Others have compared it to a trip to Grandmas and we would agree.
