Lucca North End

My friend and I had dinner at Lucca the other night. I started off with a martini which excellent (I'm pretty fussy about my martinis). The beet salad was lovely, and my pasta - a penne with wild boar (I forget the actual name of the dish) was amazing! My friend had the brussell sprouts app and the linguine with shrimp and said it was delicious, as well. We both brought home doggy bags, and mine was more than enough for two lunches! In addition to the food, the service was great, staff friendly, and I loved the atmosphere, the dim lighting, and the fact that we never felt rushed - even on what seemed to be a very busy night (thank you, Billy!). It was noisy, but we were still able to have a conversation even though there was a large party of 8 or 10 people next to us. One of the best dinners I've had in quite a while. Highly recommended.
The food was absolutely excellent, very tasty, some of the best Italian I've had in North America. A little bit on the loud side.
I liked the restaurant. Wish it was more intimate but was appropriate for the size. My scallops were outstanding!
All the staff was fantastic!
Leyna our server was right there for whatever we requested and Rita’s personality was felt through the whole restaurant.. definitely felt like I was invited into her home!!
Our experience was nice except for the noise level which was too Loud with music playing and people talking above the music and the rather minimal food options. The food (pasta) we selected was ok, and no to the level we were anticipating after hearing the food was amazing.
A very nice italian restaurant with wonderful service. There was a large wine selection. The service was amazing.
We had a pre-Thanksgiving family gathering at Lucca and it was wonderful Everyone loved their orders (pastas, salads, risotto, bread...) except the ravioli was just so-so. They were very flexible with the menu for our vegetarians. Server was very professional. They did mess up one vegetarian dish that was supposed to have different veggies but ended up being a little bland with only mushrooms in a garlic sauce. The waiter offered to take it back and bring something new but everyone already had their orders. He then offered to bring a side of broccoli, which was very nice and really unnecessary. He said he'd take the dish off the bill which was very generous. Then the manager surprised us with complementary desserts because of this one dish. We had delicious tira misu and cheesecake. It was very, very kind of them and certainly left us feeling pampered. We will definitely go back.
Yes, but I would tell them to avoid a certain waitress who forgot our menus, commented in a weird way on our choices, told me it's not really proper to have a spoon to roll your pasta and that our car that the valet brought way too early might run out of gas if we.....implied did not leave soon.
The cuisine including homemade pasta was nourishing and delicious! The service was elegant. My friend and I had an evening of connection and privacy in the middle of a busy restaurant. The wait staff learned our tastes and desires and recommended a sumptuous experience. Excellent wine list. You will be very happy here!
Lucca never fails to bring us a fabulous meal .
Outstanding North End experience. Great interior and energy on a Thursday
Nice enough place but very noisy! Our meal was very good as was the service.
Great food before a Celtics game!
Always great service and food
We have been here many times and enjoyed it every time. Very nice people who actually get you a table as quickly as possible. Very friendly and knowledgeable server and the food was terrific as usual. Really enjoyed it
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.
The food and service is great. Love this place. Come as often as I can
The food was outstanding, and we were impressed by the service and how fast everything was!
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.
Our waiter was efficient and cordial. The food was excellent and the potatoes may have been the best I have ever eaten. Cool place.
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!
Lucca's food and service were fantastic. Our waiter was very attentive but not over bearing. Love looking out to the people walking by. Great anniversary spot.
Some of the best food in Boston. Probably my favorite place in the North End
Amazing food and service. The waitress and friendly and helpful. Will be back!
Our waiter ( tall, handsome young man from Morocco) was fabulous ,very polite and extremely attentive to our needs!
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.
Outstanding service and atmosphere!! Professional and extremely courteous staff made our experience superb.
Absolutely delicious meals for everyone in our party of 4. Service was excellent!
By far this was our favorite stop in Boston! Loved everything about Lucca including service, ambiance, food, and prices.
We just had an amazing meal with outstanding service, highly recommend
Great waiter great food
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!!
Good food and atmosphere
It was an awesome experience. We had a great server and the ambiance was perfect. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The place was hopping nonstop. I highly recommend it.
Lucca is the best!
As usual food was outstanding. It is our favorite restaurant in the North End. Our waiter was not up to the standard that we expect at Lucca.
