I took a 12 year hiatus from La Morra but recently starting coming back almost weekly brink friends along for the ride. Everyone is surprised how great the food is and how warm the atmosphere is. The staff are very cordial and polite.

We keep coming back and look forward to our next visit.

Very friendly and knowledgeable service, but slow. Maybe it was the kitchen. Food is very good and has interesting angles and combinations.

The vegetable and bread "soup", Ribollita, was delicious, flavorful, and inventive. The bolognese was yummy. The steak was mediocre and had an odd finish to it from the grill.

Wonderful meal. All of it. Better than some of the meals I had in Italy. I will be back and continue to refer people.

La Morra never disappoints, however, on this particular visit, we experienced a very strange, loud and distracting noise throughout dinner. It truly became a distraction and our waiter didn't seem too worried about that. He also didn't seem to have a great grasp of details on menu items. All other elements of service were excellent - as always. And, the food? Delicious.

Wonderful as always, even though we sat at the bar. We had a great view of the Chef in the kitchen working on her masterpieces. The pate was outstanding, lamb stew special & the Bolognese were terrific. This place is one of our favorites.

Good wine list but totally mediocre food... prices are fair, but food is just way too basic/boring. Will not be back.

great wine selection. My meal this visit was not the best but in the past had a great meal.
Would definitely go back and try a different entree

The food was delicious, especially the meatballs and arancini. Service was excellent though the bar was a bit slow. Cocktails were good though rather weak. A $12 cocktail should not be weak.

The menu is wonderful and the prix fixe with wine pairings is a great experience. Portion sizes are enormous, even with the tasting menu.
Unfortunately, having to ask for our wine pairings on several courses because our server was hanging out talking with staff was not great.
We went early, it was not busy when we arrived.

Outstanding, once again. Each dish more delicious than the last. Service very good on a busy Friday night, managing several big groups but our little table of four never slipped through the cracks as I feared we might. Well done!

The food was good but there is nothing to damper the noise, so for some people it is hard to hear.

Charming spot with friendly staff and great food. We sat upstairs - loved the exposed beams and brick. A bit noisy and not easy to find parking nearby. Bo all in all worth it!

My wife and I have dined here many times over the past 10 years. Our experience last evening was as exceptional as we have come to expect. We chose the $40 Fixed Price menu - an excellent 4 course meal that was too much for us to finish. Parsnip and garlic soup and salad were both excellent followed by rigatoni and chicken meatballs cooked perfectly. Main courses were equally good and nice desserts (egg nog flan) completed the meal. Try the Roma cocktail for a wonderful fig infused bourbon. The staff are all friendly and helpful - overall consistently terrific dining near Brookline Village.

We were initially seated at a table by the window. It was 10 degrees outside and the draft through the window made it unbearably cold so we asked to be moved- they accommodated the request. The food was not cooked properly. My wife had hen which was badly under-cooked. I had the hanger steak which I requested cooked medium and it was served rare- really rare. My steak was to be accompanied by mac & cheese and was served with risotto instead. I'm afraid at these prices we cannot give the restaurant a second chance.
