Lucca is a wonderful restaurant that exquisitely and seamlessly presents the best of all the wonderful regional cuisines that Italy has to offer. The wine list is extensive and features a balance between excellent regional wines with good values as well as the big blockbusters that you'd want to splurge on for a special occasion. Suitable for special gatherings as well as date night, it perfectly encapsulates the best of Italian dining experiences.

Their signature pasta dish was amazing and the chicken was moist and flavorful. Our server
seemed very inexperienced. We ordered an Italian wine and she ask us to point it out on the
wine menu. She could not answer any questions about the wine. Did not refill water until
our meal was complete. Our service just made it seem less than spectacular. Too bad, because
the food was delicious.

The service was great! The room was a little loud! The food was good but over salted. My friend had the Duck app which was dry so they took it off our bill, the calamari app was great!

This was my first time dining at Lucca and I enjoyed it. The ambiance was great. Nice mood lighting and lively atmosphere, some might think it is a little on the noisy side if you are looking for an intimate conversation. Food was outstanding and the service was on point. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Lucca hits all the high points, food, cocktails and service all excellent. The bread disappeared quickly as everyone loved it. Calamari app a must. My husband had the Osso Bucco which was tender and tasty. The Rigatoni was so good that I wanted to take left-overs home! Lamb chops were perfectly cooked to my son's delight and the scallops were wonderful. It can get a bit noisy, but everyone there seems happy and welcomed by the wonderful staff. Would highly recommend. Will return!

Pasta was warm, not hot. Sat by the window and it was uncomfortably cold.

We made a reservation on OpenTable. Got to the restaurant early, and host did not have our reservation. 10 minutes later, with the assistance of another worker, he found it, and told us to come back closer to our reservation time. We came back exactly at our scheduled time, and still had to wait.

I felt like I was in Italy. The ambiance and decor were great, and the service was excellent. The food was quite good yet pricey as you are also paying for the location! Very enjoyable evening meal!!

Visiting Boston for the day and wanted to experience Boston's North End. Chose Lucca for dinner based on other OpenTable recommendations and great looking menu. Was not disappointed in any way! Service was appropriately attentive, menu was fabulous, wine list extensive, courses presented at pace that met our expectation and the food was superior. Thank you Lucca North End for a really great evening.

Service was very slow and not friendly. I had to practically beg my waitress to let me order a simple green salad. The red wine was very warm as if it sat under the lights on the bar. For a Wine Soectator award winning restaurant you would expect the red wine to be served the proper temp especially considering it was $12 plus a glass. Ceiling was leaking on the table next to us.

Dinner for 4 for my birthday - it was fabulous! Great cocktails, appetizers and entrees, and we had a terrific waiter - very attentive. We had the calamari, Romain salads, Scallops with roasted oyster mushrooms, Linguini with sautéed Gulf Shrimp, and Baked Orechiette - all wonderful!

The ambiance was great and we were not disappointed with anything! They surprised me with a slice of delicious chocolate torte which we all shared.

Cozy setting. The restaurant was very loud. Service was slow from getting a drink to getting entrees. Our server was cold. No personality. Never apologized that good was taking so long. Her response when we asked, were busy. Food was very good. Looking forward to Lucca South Shore.

My fiance and I had a great time. First time going to Lucca. Food was excellent and very good size portions for the price. We didnt break the bank either. Host and waiter were very attentive. I requested a table by the window at check in and the host did not disappoint. Wine was delicious and over all staff were very friendly.Never had an empty glass. Definitely recommend. Also for a date night too.
