La Morra Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
We've been coming to La Morra for many years. It has seemed that since opening a second restaurant in Concord, the quality has gradually shifted downward, but in a very sophisticated way. Mastery remains the standard at LaMorra, but brought to new, or let's say different heights by the increasing use of less expensive ingredients. Beautiful presentations, sophisticated dressings and sauces all remain. The bar is excellent. But in addition to a somewhat disappointing experience, this time my husband and I became ill the day after dining at LaMorra. This definitely could simply be coincidental, however, it has send me over the edge of disappointment in LaMorra.
We ordered the chefs prix fixe menu. The arugula and kale salad was amazing, however there was some confusion at first as we were brought the wrong salads. We are glad the manger came out and apologized, still was a little awkward because the wrong salads were not removed immediately. The rest of the meal was great, we were full, but saved room for,desserts, of coursem. Service was knowledgeable and attentive, except as noted above. The rigatoni that followed the salad and meatloaf dish entree were both delicious..we had to take some home! An unexpected gem in Brookline.
Excellent food, mixed bag on service. The menu featured excellent versions of both traditional (e.g. pasta Bolognese) and imaginative (e.g. "lasagna" of layered polenta and rabbit) dishes. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the dishes and gave good advice on food and wine. However, I arrived ahead of my party, was seated by a friendly maitre d' and then ignored for 15-20 minutes without offer of a drink, much less bread or water. There was an interminable wait between entrees and main courses (and between primi and secondi for the person who ordered the tasting menu) -- I think they forgot about us. That, of course, could have been the fault of the kitchen rather than servers.
We had a fantastic time celebrating my wife's birthday at La Morra. Service was impeccable, especially our waitress and the sommelier who helped find us the perfect bottle of wine to fit our tastes. We wound up re-ordering another round of the delicious arancinis since they were so good, and the bolognese was absolutely fantastic. We will be back for sure! Thank you!
Several of our dishes came in cold. The food selection is somewhat limited, in particular the appetizers. The service was great and the staff very attentive. One bathroom wasn't working and that fact was noticeable due to the smell outside the door. These things happen of course but unpleasant nonetheless.
Wow. How is it we haven't tried this place sooner? Went for a night out with DH. Everything was excellent: the food, the service, the wine. We each started with a small plate (I loved the Arancini), followed by an appetizer (the Insalata Tagliata was light and flavorful) , and then we both had full portions of the amazing Tagliatelle Al Ragú as a main course (Outstanding and very rich--leftovers made a great lunch today!). We will definitely be back to sample the rest of the menu and the cocktails!
La Morra is a great mix of classic and creative Italian cuisine. Most of the dishes have some kind of twist on the traditional but stay true to the roots. Pasta is cooked to perfection and the dishes all have good flavor.. The menu changes frequently so you really get seasonal menu items and ingredients. Portions are very good and the antipasti and chiccetti menu are a great way to indulge a little bit too. This is such a great neighborhood gem!
The food was delicious. We even got a special goat cheese appetizer from the chef and some sparkling wine for our anniversary. Our waitress was new and not experienced with the wine list, but she did the right thing and asked another waiter to help her. She was really nice the entire time. Food came out hot and delicious. Definitely recommend.
