Great service, delicious food and nice atmosphere. The wait staff was very professional and conscientious to our needs even though they had gotten slammed with a huge theater crowd before we came in. Both our waiter and the hostess made great recommendations off of the menu for food and wine. Would definitely like to dine here again!

My husband ordered a lamb dish. After uncovering a large layer of skin and fat he found a pile of bones and gristle. We agreed that it was the worst entree we had experienced anywhere. For $30, there was literally nothing to eat. I never send food back or complain about unsatisfactory meals. . .but this was crazy. When the waiter asked about our meal, I told him the truth. The restaurant was nice enough to take the entree off of our bill. The other parts of the meal were good to satisfactory. The decor was sad. The staff seemed unhappy. I will never go back even though the location is perfect for pre-theater dining. Too bad!

Greeting great. Service a tiny bit slow but overall very good. Reading the menu is a little difficult with the script font they use and the dishes names were above my vocabulary so we just picked a few random things and the food was outstanding! All of it. Wine was a great value too. Would definitely recommend for a nice dinner or date.

I have been to Erbaluce several times over the past few years and find the food and service to be consistently excellent. On my most recent visit we received an excellent wine recommendation and all of the food from the cauliflower appetizer and escarole salad to the guinea hen special and the steak entrees were all delicious. Everything is always incredibly fresh and since they make everything without creams or butter it is light and you can try several courses without feeling too full. The service is always very friendly and knowledgeable and they are very good about timing meals if you have to catch a show after dinner. I look forward to my next meal at Erbaluce!

This restaurant never fails to astound me. The food is so very special that it demands your attention. There is no idle talk while mindlessly eating. Each and every dish is a new experience— and always a good one.

Possibly the best Italian restaurant in Boston - a varied but not overwhelming menu, great specials, impeccably prepared dishes, and reasonably priced for such a first-rate experience.

The service was impeccable. The food is very good and very interesting. Our waiter helped us choose a wine, as almost all the wines listed were unknown to me. The choice was great. Something like a Pinot Noir. He also helped us plan our entire meal. We both got started, shared a pasta special, and had different entrees. Shared a dessert with cappuccinos. The price was a little high, but such great service and attention made you feel it was a special night out.

Erbaluce is in my view the best Italian Restaurant in Boston, including the North End restaurants. I would and have recommended it to many others. The food is made with the freshest of ingredients and exceedingly well prepared. The wine list is excellent, and the service is superb.

Great food and good services. OMG the pork cheeks!! We would certainly return. Noise level was bit over the top. Party (of 2) at a table close by was way too loud. Other guests were a bit uncomfortable with the outbursts, however, staff never said a word.
