La Morra Ratings and Reviews
Have been here almost dozen times or more over the past year and La Morra never fails to please at the highest level. I think the food is outstanding and consider this one of the best Italian restaurants in the Boston area. Thank you, La Morra! In addition, even when most tables are filled, the noise level still allows for conversation around the table...something that is sorely missed in other places
I have loved La Morra for years. It has remained consistent i quality of food and service. I don't think of it as "Italian" so much as Italian' "informed" or "Influenced." I've noticed more restaurants following the lead of this one in certain respects, e.g. keeping the menu small enough so customers can have confidence in every single item on it.
My wife and I had a delightful moment at La Morra.
There is a real italian flavor in this restaurant, same as the one we can find in Italy.
Food was very tasty, pasta perfectly cooked "al dente" and wine is great.
The only little regrets we had were:
- The spritz which was not fizzy enough for our taste, probably due to the amount of ice
- No tiramisu on the dessert menu
But, definitely, it is a delicious restaurant!
La Morra is the real deal for Italian in the Boston area. It's up there with the best. It's charming and the food is both authentic and inventive at the same time. Too often in Boston you get decently prepared classics, but at La Morra you get the classic inspiration with inventive interpretations by the chefs - which is how the Italians eat. They use local, seasonal ingredients and the beer selection is small but good. I imagine the cocktails and wine are the same but we didn't have those.
A very strange and poor night at our favorite Brookline restaurant. The service is always prompt but tonight even the first course came slowly and the entrees never came, despite assurances that they were on their way. Our server promised he'd just checked with the kitchen - but it turned out he lied and left us for another 15 minutes, oblivious. When the manager arrived with a bowl of rather goopy pasta as a consolation, he explained that the ticket had never arrived in the kitchen but they were starting it now. This was easily 45 minutes after our salad was cleared. The food finally arrived, it was good, but couldn't rescue the night. It appears that a few human fixtures of La Morra's quality control have vanished and based on last night, there's a steep learning curve. (We were not the only ones this service snafu affected, by the way.)
Just the best. Always great, this dinner was even better. Eggplant Parmesan, an old Italian restaurant standard, was light, delicious, topped generously with Burratta, and simply, delisciously unique. Zucchini and potato genovese was flavorful, authentic, grilled bluefish with pesto and corn, the corn agnolotti, the bolognese, grilled corn salad and the Masi wine all were fabulous. Not just another great meal.
I went to La Morra on a date for Dine Out Boston and we each got the 4-course meal. All of the dishes we tried were incredible and the wine flights were wonderful as well. It's a great place to go for a special occasion. The winners in our books were the tomato salad, corn ravioli, the hanger steak, and the roasted peaches dessert. All of those items blew us away. We'll be returning for sure!
The meal I chose among the Restaurant Week options was mixed. The orrichette with shrimp was superb, and the main course (bluefish) quite good. The first course was a big disappointment: dry, flavorless lentils with a few pieces of calamari thrown in (to add insult to injury, the Restaurant charged a supplement for it). The wine selections were also quite mixed, some both good and interesting, while the Barbara/Pinot noir blend tasted like cheap cough syrup. My wife also found some of her courses disappointing. The service seemed overwhelmed by the Restaurant Week crowds (for example, we had to ask twice for the wine to go with the main course and it finally arrived when we had just about finished that course).
Love this restaurant! Their four course restaurant week offering is pretty much their normal menu and it is superb! Black lentils with calamari for a first was outstanding. Tomato risotto was comfort food at its best and the lobster, seasonal veggie ragu with a polenta cake was simply yummy. Highly recommend this place.
My sister found this place after searching online for a restaurant near Fenway, we were seeing a concert. Reservations were easy to make using open table. When we arrived, we were welcomed and quckly seated. Turned out that they were offering a prix fix menu, lucky for us. Food was made with fresh ingredients and portion size was perfect for a 4 course meal. Corn ravioli was my favorite! Service was good!
My friend and I came here for restaurant week and had such a fantastic meal. The lentil and calamari appetizer was the stand out dish of the evening. I had the bluefish as my entree and my friend had the steak-both were so delicious. Highly highly recommend and I recommend taking advantage of restaurant week as it's quite pricey otherwise.
Stop and go here- la morra was excellent. One of the better Italian restaurants we have been to. We had a mushroom corn ravioli and bolgnese that were really great. Finished with the skirt steak that was great. Service was great. I eat out a lot at many fine restaurants and this ranks up there with many at a much more reasonable price.
My husband & I had always wanted to dine at LaMorra so we chose a Thursday evening after work to have a date-night. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, we loved the original brick interior and wood floors. We each chose a pre-fix meal and shared. This included antipasti, primi, secondi & dolce. The menu is creative, fresh and everything was delicious. Our waiter was helpful with our wine selection and attentive throughout, as was the rest of the staff. We highly recommend LaMorra, you will not be disappointed.
Another fine dinner at La Morra in Brookline. It is one of the few Italian restaurants-- or any restaurant-- that offers my favorite appetizer, Vitella Tonnato. This was followed by the Melanzane Fritte Con Pomodorini E Stracciatella (translation:Eggplant parmigiano with olive oil poached cherry tomatoes and stracciatella), washed down with a Sangiovese, 2014, Cecchi Chianti Classico. The corn salad is also different and recommended. As it was a special repast, I indulged with the Peaches And Cream dolce (Roasted peaches, vanilla honey gelato, chocolate ameretti crunch). This last ingredient was the icing on the cake (so to speak). Eccellente! One small annoyance-- a large party included 3 or 4 young children who the adults allowed to talk-maybe shout--raising the noise level and undermining the lovely ambiance. I might expect this at Olive Garden, not La Morra. Not sure what the staff could do, other than perhaps being aware and politely asking the grown-ups to exert a little control.
We have dined at La Morra many times and love it. It is great to be able to experience seasonal cuisine that always tastes fresh and is a bit different from other Italian restaurants. The waitstaff is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about food preparation and wine choices. We truly appreciate consistency in quality food and service.
This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is always delicious, taking advantage of seasonal and local ingredients. The staff is knowledgeable and pleasant. Stephanie, the manager, is a gem. She always comes to greet us and makes sure we've tried new items. We miss her on her rare nights off. If you haven't tried LaMorra for great italian food, you are missing a real treat. Try the polenta, salads, pasta, fish or steak. You won't be disappointed.
