Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
Food, service and atmosphere was great. I want to go back to try the desserts!
My friend and I loved this restaurant. She said it was like being invited into a family's home for dinner. Everything was fresh and well-prepared with seasonings that enhanced the food, but never concealed the natural flavors.
Good home maid meal
Delicious and great service!
Great introduction to Moldavian food. we have already sent other folks there
The pork dish was delicious!
Food and service were great. Got a table as soon as we entered. Nice atmosphere with traditional Moldovan music and reasonable prices.
Friendly staff, both the pork and chicken we're good.
It was soooo good! Authentic tasty food and sweet people, what more could you ask for! 6/5
When first opened Moldova was kinda stark in decor & I don't think they had a liquor license. I didn't give it a try. Now, however, they've stepped up their game with a fresh, modern decor, colorful photos of the home country, a colorfully graphic folk design across one wall, & light regional music; full bar, very pleasant wait staff. Traditional foods are well prepared in flavors; the polenta nice and light, the savory "pies" have a nice light and crisp crust. I'll definitely return!
Really really good!
The food is excellent, but the service was very slow.
The food is incredible! The service is very attentive.
The restaurant was had pleasant, but colorful decor. It was great experience to be in Moldova for an evening with delightful food.
I loved it! Delicious authentic homemade tasting food! Lovely intimate place!
excellent food wine was great went back twice
Great food and service at Moldova. Very interesting dishes.
Loved it! This lovely family restaurant had really delicious food. Atmosphere was clean and enjoyable. I really appreciated that menus were clearly labeled with GF and V, and they were able to easily accommodate my food allergies. I’m excited to return again.
I was impressed. Good food. Nice presentation.
We had a pleasant dinner for two and got to try great food.
Good food, nice small place. Waitress seemed a little overwhelmed as she was alone, even though there were only about three or four tables going at once. They didn't have the wine we ordered and she brought a substitute that turned out to be more than twice as expensive as the one we had chosen; that wasn't cool, but we should have asked the price so it's also on us. We'll probably go back.
Great food and atmosphere!
5 definitely would recommend it!
Potato Pie, noodles, salata and wine were so delicious! House special Lamb dish was scrumptious too! Great little restaurant for fine dining!
The food was really very good. A very nice neighborhood restaurant with good service.
Delicious!!! Wonderful authentic atmosphere and music.
The food was incredible and it’s really a family run place! I can’t wait to go again..
Good service and well prepared and tasty food
The food at Moldova was good, and everything was very fresh. I did think the prices were a bit high for comfort/home style food. I got a special which was very good, but my boyfriend got the roast lamb and the meat portion was a little small. Overall, I think it was worth trying and something unique, but I don't know if we will return.
My browser isn't letting me click on the scale, but I give Moldova a 5. I've not had Moldovan food before but my husband and I both had some traditional recipes and they were fantastic (I had a cheese pie and he had something with chicken), and we both had soup and the fruit punch. We will definitely be going back and maybe bring a couple of friends.
Nice interior, good service/staff, food was enjoyable.
Great food and very helpful staff. Would absolutely recommend to a friend if they’re feeling up for something different. Seemed very authentic/ traditional. Would recommend the wine sampler as well!!
Nice neighborhood restaurant and friendly staff
Everything was delicious!
Bright ambiance. Pleasant service. Tasty food.
Delicious Eastern European food in a nice atmosphere. The price of wine by the glass seemed high to me.
The food was delicious and the atmoshphere was very stylish and modern. It was a wonderful environment to be introduced to a new Cuisine.
Extensive menu and well prepared. Enjoyable experience. Easy to find, parking ok. Could be a family-friendly place or date night.
Interesting and delicious food in a pleasant environment
The manager saw to it that they made me a custom vegan meal and it was delicious. Also the 2, not one but 2 servers taking care of us were extremely attentive and well mannered. A+ all around. Will be back for sure.
Great, and novel dining experience! Food was excellent.
This is a unique place with delicious food. I especially liked the roasted eggplant appetizer and the chicken stew. The service was great! I highly recommend you give it s try.
We loved our meal at Moldova - it was perfect for a cool fall Boston night!
Dishes had distinct flavors yet not overly salted. Casual atmosphere very laid back. Love the cherry crepe dessert. Really nice restaurant to have a meal with friends or family.
Great food, unique tastes and very affordable! The cabbage pie, meat links and cabbage salads were excellent. Clean and bright with interesting decor. Our wait person was very helpful. Nice to be able to carry on conversation too and hear eachother!
Moldova is delicious!
Even better than when we went this summer
Very delicious, from the cabbage piece (sort of fried, but quite nice texture) to the polenta appetizer (the condiments of sour cream and feta cheese were so fresh by the way) to the main courses, the beef/pork combo roll and the very nicely put together grape leaves and cabbage leaves wrapped around rice.
Great food, Unfortunately they were out of a couple of their entrees.
Got me to try something new, thanks!
Excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere.
Terrific authentic food, nice atmosphere although noisy, great service. First time there and we loved it!
Loved it! Food was delicious (cabbage pie and roasted lamb - amazing!), service friendly, will definitely be back!
The food was very good and authentic - we ordered a variety of dishes and everyone was pleased. The only reason I did not rate them 5 stars is because they do not have a liquor license (although they are in the process of getting one).
The meal was great! Definitely plan on going back.
good, fresh food and nice service
The food was delicious and the service was great! I would definitely go back to Moldova in the future.
My aunt and I really enjoyed our meal- they will be getting a full liquor license- in the future so that should make eating at Moldova even more enjoyable-
I really enjoyed my visit to Moldova. I had the chicken sausages with cabbage slaw and baked potato. It was served with hot sauce on the side. Delicious! I also tried the sour cherry crepes for dessert. Also really good! The service was great and the staff were very pleasant. I will definitely go there again!
Food was great. They are working to get a wine/beer license which would be great to accompany the meal... perhaps wine from the region. Service was great. Very clean and a quiet environment. Seems to be a comfortable local crowd.
Love this place!!! Definitely going back!
Very good place, glad that we've discovered it!
The food was delicious & the service was fantastic. The wait staff was very attentive & helpful with explaining dishes & making choices. The manager checked in more than once to make sure we were enjoying our experience & walked us out of the restaurant. This was definitely an above average dining experience & it was wonderful to try new food!
Moldova a is a cheery and bright restaurant . The food was fresh and tasty. The chicken soup hit the spot on a cold and snowy day. Service was prompt and efficient.
Fantastic food that took me back to Eastern Europe. Such a treasure!
