I have been to Lucca three times previously and I have to see this is one of my favorites when visiting Boston. They are always consistent and the food has always been delicious. They have a very unique menu for those you enjoy branching out.

Lucca Back Bay did not disappoint!! Having frequented their location in the North End I was very excited to experience their Back Bay location and it was very impressive. They satisfied and satiated our party of 6 which is no small fete since our tastes are decidedly different. Service impeccable, food outstanding and overall an excellent experience.

I ran the Boston Marathon...so of course I wanted a nice pasta dinner the night before the race...and my wife and I had a great meal at Lucca Back Bay. Excellent food! They had a special runner’s pasta dish (baked ziti with egg and chicken added for protein). Definitely recommend this restaurant.

High ceilings, linen table cloths, plenty of attention from service staff makes the evening feel a bit more special than a casual dinner. I so appreciate that you can actually have a conversation with your dinner guests here. Excellent Italian food that isn't too heavy.

Service was awful. Oysters were really good. I had the rack of lamb, that was ok but the sides that came with it were not tasteful and the presentation was not up to par. For a $50+ meal not impressed with Lucca Back Bay. Won’t go again

Lucca Back Bay is great! I was there with a big group for a bachelorette dinner - about 12 girls. Our food was outstanding, our server was VERY patient with all of our requests, we had a perfect table on the second level. Everything was perfect! I highly recommend this place!

Our dining experience was exceptional. From the valet upon arrival, to coat check, to the waiter and hostess, the service could not have been better. The food was delivered with appropriate timing (not delivering the main courses immediately after the appetizer). Our waiter (Cesar ?) was perfect. Just the right amount of attending without coming across too much. We will certainly return. This will probably become our special occasion location. Much appreciated.

Wonderful meal with great service. Highly recommend the tagliatelle with lobster and the scallops. Chocolate hazelnut dessert superb and good to split since very rich. Very nice restaurant with high windows, dark wood, and classy setting. Best meal I had in Boston and would go back if I return to town.

The food was delicious and the mood was calm & inviting, service was great. Prices are about what we expected as the restaurant showed up in the "fine dining" category. dinner and drinks for 2 was about $100. I would definitely go back if i'm in the area again. Got a filet and was one of the best cooked pieces of steak ive gotten from a restaurant in a while. There were two floors, only the bottom was open when we went as it wasn't busy but next time i would like to sit up above.

Home-made pasta plates great, liked the gnocchi. Absolutely the most attentive service I've seen in awhile. At least 4 different classes of service people managers kept coming to check we were happy. Lovely Italian choices, but, sniffle, no veal dishes.

The restaurant was delightful in several ways. Lisa, the charming English Maitre d’Hotel, was most attentive, as was our waitress. The meal was perfectly cooked and presented well. The wine list was ample. In summary, the milieu made for a very pleasant evening.

We come in for Boston Symphony concerts and have tried four or five restaurants in the area of Symphony Hall. Coming back to Lucca now after a couple of years we've realized it's definitely the best.

Meal was outstanding! Service was exceptional! I am guessing that the person attending to us is a professional and thus is a side job. The waiter’s service skills were notable, memorable, and outstanding! Give this man a raise, a promotion, and an excellent reference so he can use these skills at a higher level. Wish I had asked his name...might be S Asian descent? Was attending tables in center of dining room...was so glad I changed reservation to Lucca’s! Almost went to Brasserie Jo.

The food was good and the service from Caesar was excellent. The hostess was also vey pleasant and helpful.

It was a Wednesday night w/a snowstorm so the place was not crowded. We sat in the bar area so it would be livelier. There was a small party in the bar that was being obnoxious. (Not the restaurant's fault.) A group of about 6 people hovered over our tall table screaming so we had to move. We moved to a corner booth up front in the bar area and it was freezing. It got to the point where I was shivering but since it was a business meeting and I had already asked to move once, I didn't ask again. They need to get the heating checked out by the windows!

We last ate at Lucca in the North End about 5 years ago. Had dinner the other night at the Huntington street location next to the Marriott Copley Square. Great location and very convenient. Have to say it was one of the best restaurants we've ever been to. Food was unbelievable, service great, not to expensive, and atmosphere was great. Would definitely recommend it!
