We took visitors from EuropeWe took visitors from Europe (usually discerning) and we all had a very nice dining experience.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved ItLucca is an awesome restaurant. It was my first time, but i had the best experience. I am a vegetarian and they still had many options for me or were willing to create something for my mail meal. Everything was delicious. I forget our servers name, but she was very good. She was friendly, funny, made conversation and made it easy to interact with her. I went for a date night, overall great experience. Cant wait to go again!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food, service averageThis place is one of the first you notice on Hanover Street as you head into the North End from downtown. It has great al fresco dining, fantastic food and a real North End ambience. The carpaccio appetizer was delicious with the whimsical variation of black garlic aioli and edamame on top. The lobster bucatini was amazing with a blend of bacon and lobster aioli with a generous amount of lobster in the dish - easily my favorite dish I've had here. The lamb shank and the swordfish special were solidly done. The 5-spice creme brulee was unusual but delicious, especially with a cappuccino. The service was good, but not great. Still, nothing to take away from the food and overall experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service. GreatOutstanding service. Great food.

It was fabulous and the Martini was perfectly mixed. The service was also exemplary. I would highly recommend it.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fiance and I took his motherMy fiance and I took his mother out to dinner here for her birthday. We had multiple appetizers, three great dinners and dessert and everything was delicious. The wait staff was excellent and it is in a great location on Hanover St.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed restaurantI really enjoyed restaurant week at Lucca. We got a wonderful table right by the wine cellar which kept noise down and gave us the opportunity for intimate conversation. Food was served quickly. Ambience is great. Perfect for date night. Only hiccup was they gave us the wrong bill at first (which was nearly 3x our bill) and it took quite some time to sort it out. They were a little understaffed so occasionally I would ask for something and they would forget to come back with a response. I think this may have been more because it was busy restaurant week.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA home run in the North EndOur party of four had a wonderful experience at Lucca's. We had four different entrees all of which were excellent. The wait staff were present but not overbearing. Our waitress was well informed and responsive. We will return to Lucca's soon.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot!I have been to Lucca a million times and the food and service are always great.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn again, and againI've been to Lucca's several times and it continues to be one of my favorites. I had taken my sister and her family, who were visiting from out of town, here once before and they wanted to return ( because they were so enchanted on their first visit) We requested and were seated near the window to take in the hustle and bustle of quaint Hanover Street in Boston's North End. The food was, as usual, outstanding. The baked Orcehetta (sp?) infused with cheese and truffle oil was FABU! Pork Chop, Steak and Bolognese also delighted others around the table. Wine selection was excellent. It is a great place with friendly wait staff and real charm.
Will return again, and again.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
