Would be a great place for a business dinner5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food....great service...Beautiful restaurant, great food and professional staff. The restaurant is a little dark (great for that romantic dinner out) so bring your flashlight to read the menu. Lamb lolli pops as an appetizer are a plus5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place for dinnerWe have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed with our dining experience. The duck dish is a favorite of ours. The pasta dishes are also very good. We like the child's menu, too. Wait staff is always very attentive. Will be going back soon.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAs billed a good experienceAs noted (by others) a very nice space with a pleasant and accommodating wait staff. The food was interesting in composition and description. Portions are smallish but interiesting. Some dishes such as gnocchi were a bit bland but otherwise OK. Prices are up there but not out of keeping with the neighborhood5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for business dinnersInteresting menu. Food well prepared and presented.
Non-intrusive, competent wait staff
Good value.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for business dinnerFood was outstanding, seated on time and were forgiving of one late in our party on a very busy Saturday night. Service would have been 5 star if they hadn't forgotten us at the beginning to get the wine order, but was attentive as soon as the food arrived. Would highly recommend made my boss AND client happy.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable eveningThe entire evening was memorable. From the minute we walked in the door, the service was tremendous. When our wine selection was not available, we were offered a better wine at the same price as the bottle originally requested. The appetizers and entrees were outstanding. Dessert was also delicious.
We were going to the Symphony and had valeted our car when we arrived for our 5:30 reservation. We mentioned the symphony. When we returned to retrieve our car at 10:30, it was parked right at the front door waiting for us. This is the height of fine service!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the best restaurantThis is the best restaurant withing a reasonable walk for most folks from Symphony or Jordan Hall. It's not so good that I would go there otherwise, but it is good enough to enjoy once one is there. On this particular occasion, my date was late, and phoned the restaurant to report she would be, and the staff was quite solicitous both before and after she arrived.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful eveningLucca Back Bay Provided an excellent meal with excellent service.

However, we were seated almost immediately and drink orders were taken, no menus provided.
We were fine with waiting and eventually received menus and orders taken. There was a woman from reception who at one point came by to ask how things were and I mentioned that the waiter was very late delivering one of our appetizers. She took action immediately and from that point forward she ensured that everything worked like clockwork, she was unbelievable and made the experience Very Good.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding.The food was outstanding.
