La Morra Ratings and Reviews
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.
This is a very friendly restaurant. Easy going and the food is really good. I had a root veggie salad and duck confit which were very good- all seasonal. The desserts are really good, my poached pear was excellent. My husband had Tom Brady's favorite pasta with meat sauce and started with a cabbage salad. He's fussy about wine and said that the wine that he had was very good red wine.
After hearing positive things about La Morra, we decided to go for our anniversary dinner.
It was awful! Some of the food was just ok, but my entree came long after my husband had finished his meal and it was GROSS.
Supposedly, there were issues in the kitchen with a chef not showing up, but we were not compensated in any way for this unpleasant situation on our anniversary, no less!
I've been meaning to try La Morra for several months now, but it wasn't easy to get a reservation at this very popular restaurant. Having finally visited, I am puzzled by the rave reviews. The food wasn't bad, but it was quite simple and unimaginative. If their pasta is homemade, I couldn't taste the difference from a dry box pasta. Worst of all was the service. I told our server when she was taking our order that we had to leave in 1.5 hours to catch a show. We haven't seen her after that; not even once did she check on us. We ordered a pre-fix with wine pairing, but our wines arrived at different times than the dishes they were supposed to accompany - sometimes before and sometime after. Despite the fact that we had 1.5 hours for dinner, the first course (a simple salad) arrived after 30 minutes from the time the server took our order. After an hour and a half, we got the entrée. At that point, I told the (very nice) guy who brought our food that we didn't have time for dessert wine, but would like to have something chocolate for dessert and a check. He came back with banana tiramisu (chocolate?) and a check, and then left. I had to get up and literally chase down our waitress for her to run the credit card. It's possible that service isn't always this poor at La Morra and we just got unlucky, but the food wasn't memorable enough for me to give it another try.
Went here at the suggestion of my Lyft driver and it lived up to the hype. Made my reservation, arrived and had my table ready. Waiters were extremely attentive and offered great descriptions/suggestions.
The ambiance was very cozy and almost felt like you were at a family get together.
The food was spectacular. I went for the four course meal and every bite was delicious.
The price is right on point with the quality, and worth every cent.
I recommend this place for any occasion but it will definitely impress colleagues or loved ones.
I will definitely be coming back whenever I am in town
I had heard people sing La Morra's praises for years so I was surprised that it did not "wow" me or my wife (we went there for our anniversary). The service was very slow and it felt like they put us in the corner and forgot about us. The small plates were good and the tagliatelle bolognese was excellent. However, our entrees were average at best. I guess it just failed to live up to our high expectations.
I like to go to La Morra at least once a month. The variety of choices is more than wide enough so there is always something new and tempting to try. There are also regularly offered dishes like tagliatelle Bolognese which is just perfection. The service is efficient and friendly although I would have preferred a little more time between the arrival of our drinks and the first course.
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.
