We had a big group and they accommodated us so well and put us at a table where we were able to all converse and no one felt cut off. The food was delicious and our server was knowledgeable and able to make informed recommendations on food and wine. 10/10 would recommend!

Checked this out this week while visiting Boston - what a great find! I read about it on Yelp after it was recommended by a business associate. Several things I liked about this place. First, nice greeting by the host who immediately asked me if he could take or coats - a lost art. Second - the place smells great - like good food. The waiter, Craig, was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine. He also re-seated us b/c we decided to sit at a table in the bar and watch the Olympics.
The gnocchi with the short rib was outstanding as was the duck confit appetizer which was also very well presented and done to perfection. For dinner we had the house made three cheese ravioli. Again, it was fabulous and very rich - thank god for red wine! Small issue, the ravioli was just a little too el dente for me and actually undercooked a bit - but by then we were so full it didn't matter. No room for dessert, but assume they are great based on all the other items we had. Oh, the fresh focaccia brought to the table was delicious as well.
Great find on the north end near our hotel - will definitely be back next time in Boston!

We requested a quiet table and were accommodated. The rigatoni was outstanding! I loved the prosciutto appetizer--it was large, delicious, and very filling. Even the crostini were something special. Come prepared to spend at least $100 for a really good bottle of wine--what a selection!

Server too pushy, “you might want to order..with that”. Once is fine; three times comes across as insincere /pushy. Food good but with northend price tag.

Fantastic food. Nice to get a reservation on a Saturday night in the North End. My niece has allergies and was thrilled to see gluten-free pasta options. Delicious. Gracious, attentive staff.

Amazing food. I lived in Italy and the food at Lucca is on par with the food that I had there. It’s so good! The waitstaff is excellent. It’s an expensive meal but worth every penny.

Small menu but a good mix. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and sides. Brussel sprouts were my favorite! $8 for side of bread but worth it. Like a pizza with as much cheese as they put in it.

Terrific spot. Focaccia is nice, as is the accompaniment. Carpaccio and oysters were terrific. . Tasty etc. Nice ambience. While I am fortunate/blessed to be comfortable at all dining price points, i believe the relative price to value of Lucca vs other North End dining spots is high. Not really a complaint..just an observation that there are several other tasty Italian dining spots in the North End that, in my view, offer a somewhat better ‘value’. Having said so, Lucca’s was great. Host was terrific and would clearly go back again.

Thank you for a very nice evening.

My date and I arrived a few minutes early for our reservation because we knew it would be busy and indeed it was. They ran out of a lot of things on their set menu but our server was so helpful in recommending other good choices and gave us a complimentary drink.

Had about a half hour to 45 min wait for a table .. but let me tell you that I had one of the best nights I’ve had in a long time here. Great service, great drinks and the food? Perfect in my eyes lol I recommend this place for all couples.

Went for a birthday celebration, the restaurant was empty with a gourp of guys drinking at the bar. I read good reviews but i was not happy with service (not welcoming and not nice), food (not italian at all, and i am italian born and raised), very weird manager/owner going to tables and asking them to order what he wants. Not a nice vibe, i left after appetizers.
