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.

I was very disappointed with the service and value. We has a reservation for 7 people (I was surprised that I can make reservation). We arrived a little early and saw the table was ready for us but the waitress made us wait outside until our reserved time. I picked this place because it is family-style dinner (as indicated on the sign outside) but we found out later everyone has to order a dish (no sharing!!!). Our waitress was rude and not happy to bring us extra plates for us to share. We have tons of food left. This is definitely not a place to go if you cannot eat 5 pounds of food in one seating. NOT RECOMMENDED!!

If you're a tourist and you're going to Boston's North End for the first time I wouldn't go here. Although the food at La Famiglia Georgio's may be a bit better, and more appropriately priced than the restaurants on touristy Hanover street, you miss out in the ambience and people watching.
La Famiglia's is a great middle-of-the-week restaurant for locals. The food is great, but the ambience and the service are no where to be found. The dining room has bad acoustics and can get very loud and the servers could care less if you'd like more bread or need a new fork.
I had the linguni with the Fra Diavolo sauce. It was wonderful. The pasta tastes homemade. The portions are enormous. The meatballs are like your Mom's. The food makes up for where this restaurant lacks in other areas.

This is the only place I eat in the North End. It is like sitting in your grandmothers house. Simple tables and service, wine served in juice glasses. The portions are huge and the prices are cheap. The food is great. A very nice place to bring the whole fam. DON""T BE FOOLED BY THE SIMPLE APEARENCE

You'd never know from the unassuming exterior that this place has the best Italian food not only in the North End, but the whole city. Their gnocchi is especially good, as is the chicken marsala. Service can get rather slow on a busy night, but its worth the wait.

I love this place! I've been there so many times... I have a hard time trying other resturants. Not only do they have a large selection on their menue, but their prices are the best in the neighborhood! Also, the portions are great... if you like to eat ""big,"" this is the place to go!

If you're hungry, go to La Famiglia! The portions are extremely generous! The menu had all my favorites and then some. I think they should stop presenting 5 green olives in the wooden salad bowl with light, tasteless oil at the beginning of the meal. My veal was cooked to perfection. The service could have been a bit more efficient as there were many tables open, but none of them cleaned off.
