Every year we eat at Lucca Back Bay - for four years now since our company has been attending the Seafood Expo. Never ever disapppints. One of the best meals to be had in the city.
Modern Italian with a New England twist. Afforadable wine list and they stay open late for gourmet pizza in the bar.
Pricey, but worth it. The service was impeccable from the moment I walked on the door to the moment I walked out. The server offered excellent suggestions that fit my needs (try the beet salad! No, really!) And the pasta is made in-house. Enough said.
My husband & I celebrated our 35th anniversary & everything was wonderful as always! The food, service & ambience was truly delightful!! Our server was exceptionally attentive & made our time very special! Will always come back to Lucca!!
We had wonderful service, attentive and well informed. The food was interesting, different from what I expected ... and delicious. I appreciated help with the large wine list and enjoyed a fine Chardonnay that I had not tried before. We felt welcomed and at home. The noise level is high, so don't plan to have an extended conversation.
We had a 9 pm reservation on a Saturday night and was lucky enough to be able to do a tasting menu! Everything was delicious! I kept marveling at how none of the flavors we're muddy, all very clean and well balanced. Brilliant, delicious combinations. Service was on point too, very attentive and also funny. I will definitely be coming back!
My husband and I were having an overnight visit to Boston complete with our visit to this new restaurant to us, Lucca. It did not disappoint. The food and presentation were amazing, our waiter attentive, and the atmosphere inviting (a bit on the loud side if seeking a highly romantic quiet dinner though). I would strongly recommend Lucca! We hope to be back again.
Loved the Ravioli!
my wife and i have been here many times. food is always great with diverse menu appealing to all tastes and service is very timely responsive, friendly and not over bearing. Managers always come to table to confirm a delicious and enjoyable meal ( never a doubt). I recommend to all and it is especially well located for pre- post symphony or Huntington theater events as well
Superior food and service. Quite pricey, but we knew that ahead of time.
Amazing Italian great flavor... great ambience... very intimate... creative tasting Italian as well... ventured out of my normal Italian options and was thoroughly satisfied!
Host/management team were welcoming and the table was ready when we arrived. Waitress gave excellent service. For appetizers we had the calamari which was spicy and interesting, and the gnocchi, vegetarian version which was great too. good size portions. For entree we had the Halibut special, perfectly cooked and great flavor, and meat Rigatoni with a mascarpone sauce, amazingly we couldn't finish it but it was wonderful. For dessert we had the chocolate option which was good too.
Able to have conversation without having to shout across the table.
We will be back.
Great waiter. Was a fixed menu and it was Valentines Day. Overall very nice. Top notch waiter and staff
Food was great. Had the lobster butternut bisque and it was the best I have had out of any bisque. Sat in bar for about an hour waiting for business associate and was perfect for relaxing a
I work in the industry, so Valentine’s Day is never an option for my wife and I. We came to Boston for dinner and he theater, with a great recommendation for Lucca.
Our experience was perfect! The recommendation precedes itself. Our server was perfect, knowledgeable and polite when discussing menu selections and suggestive selling. Also attentive, with no delay in bottle water and wine service.
She opened our Brunello and let it breath while we enjoyed cocktails first, sharing some oysters and splitting the soup. My wife loved the presentation of the ingredients that finished with hot soup poured table side!
Another shared item, the gnocchi with a split Caesar all before dinner. Needless to say we had no room for dessert, although we still looked at the menu to see what we were missing. Top to bottom service and food were terrific, and we were right on time for the theater.
Outstanding food and professional staff. It is always a pleasure to dine at Lucca Back Bay.
I made a very quick, last minute decision to book a business dinner at Lucca Back Bay based on Trip Advisor reviews of restaurants near the Prudential Tower in Boston. And it was an excellent call. I wrapped up one business discussion the bar area and the bar service was near perfect. (My apologies if I don’t correctly remember her name, but Isabella did a great job!) Then I transitioned into the dining room for a second business meeting over dinner. The Maitre d' was warm, welcoming and very helpful and the service team did a terrific job. The food was exactly what I hoped for when I made the reservation: Classic Italian and very tasty. My Beet Salad and Linguine with "Garlicky Shrimp" were both very satisfying. I was so impressed that I'm very sure I'll go back to Lucca Back Bay the next time I'm in the area.
Really loved the atmosphere, the food was pretty good, but the service was a bit inattentive.
Bland service. Long wait for mediocre food. Never brought Birthday desert requested.
Doesn't have cocktail sauce for oysters.
A floundering experience.
Won't be back.
The gnocchi appetizer was amazing! Don’t skip it!
This is a special restaurant where the focus is on the food and the dining experience. Delicious use of herbs and seasonings and fresh, high quality ingredients make each dish we tried excellent. All homemade ingredients. Tables are far enough apart for privacy and the staff is highly attentive and well trained. Great atmosphere and extensive wine list. We would highly recommend dining at Lucca's Back Bay!
I loved the feel of the place - tall ceilings, spacious table arrangements, dark walls, contrasting white table cloths. Our server was excellent. She was attentive but not hovering, friendly and lively but not inappropriately familiar. Food was very good. My husband's portion of cavatelli was twice as large as necessary while my salmon dish was perfectly sized. It was great to have good selection of reasonably priced wine by the glass. Overall, a very pleasant dinner indeed.
2nd time in and both times the greeters had difficulty connecting me with my dinner party. 1st time they were seated and I waited. 2nd time I was seated and my party waited - not a big deal but can be improved.
I coat checked with a small shopping bag and when I left I did not get my bag back. I had forgotten about it but came back a few hours latter to get it.
We were there on a Friday night and they did seem rushed. The service was not as attentive as I expected, waited for wine and our waiter did not return to see about our dinners. The as always was very good and the portions large. We have dined at Lucas' often and we do so again.
Great meal. Waitress was fun and prompt.
Always good food pretheater or symphony but portions are large— the servers are happy to divide
Always a pleasure to dine at Lucca. Wish I lived in Boston so I could dine there daily.
Pork chop was the best I've ever had!
Nice place, but nothing that really stood out about it. Made me think of a place you might take a business contact. Food was quite tasty, service was professional. Server tried to up sell more than once (we narrowly avoided a $40 glass of Cabernet) but was pleasant enough about it.
I eat at Lucca Back Bay a few times a year when I'm in the area. I have always found it to be excellent! However, my most recent meal was disappointing. First, I asked for a pomegranate martini and they didn't have pomegranate juice so they made me a cosmo. That was an acceptable option, however, the cosmo was sour. When I told the server, he brought it back to the bar and returned it to me within seconds and it was clearly the same drink, I suspect with sugar added! My food was good but not as warm as it could have been. I did not send it back because I didn't want to ruin the evening by complaining a second time. I will give it another chance but, again, I expected better, especially for the $200 tab.
Girls night out for a birthday celebration. The waiter surprised us with a nice apple pie for the birthday friend. Nice place for a long chat over dinner. Mussels & calamaris were delicious. But the lobster soup was way too salty and it was the only choice for a really cold night. The entries are standard without much of wow factor. Will go again for a friends catch up!
Extraordinary food presented with style and elegance. Service was exceptional.
We love this restaurant.
I take my mother every year to Lucca's Back Bay when we go to Holiday at Pops. The food is always spectacular, and the service impeccable. The staff that greeted us were amazingly warm and welcoming, getting our coats and making sure we were comfortable at our table. Our server was friendly, had great timing on checking in, and was simply wonderful. I love treating my mother and she really looks forward to this meal. We come all the way from Cape Cod for the evening, so it is very special for her. My thanks to the staff, and the chefs, and can't wait to see you again next year.
Our table of five all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The salads were delicious, and the cocktail choices were excellent. Our waitress could not have been more pleasant and the owner engaged us in fun conversation and showed an interest in how our evening went.
We loved our evening out!
Great food but small portions. Service was excellent as well.
The four of us have had dinner at Lucca a number of times. Our experience Saturday was not great. We waited to order, waited for food....our server hardly acknowledged us. My major complaint was that our appetizer serving plates were left on the table for more than 20 minutes—the table is not very large and empty oyster platters, wooden salami boards, etc. made it difficult to even pick up a glass. We poured our own wine, and the server’s attitude about the vintage served being different than the vintage on the wine list was scoffed as immaterial.
And by the way charging $4.50 for filtered tap water is cheesy....after ther service, it added insult to injury.
Enjoyable dinner after a late afternoon concert at Symphony Hall. The dining room was busy but our waiter was attentive. We enjoyed a pasta dish and salmon - both nicely prepared.
A favorite stop after a concert at Symphony Hall. Rather pricey, but wonderful food and service.
We went here for dinner prior to attending The Boston Pops at Symphony Hall. The valet service was speedy, the restaurant was packed but the staff knew we needed to make the show and got us a space upstairs. Excellent service and delicious food! I had the soup that has lobster in it. Amazing!!! They also made kid portions of pasta alfredo, fresh bread, great wine. Everyone was happy and friendly we encountered. I highly recommend!
