Long-standing favorite restaurant. We try to stop by whenever we’re in Boston. Last night didn’t disappoint. Perfectly prepared fish and a ravioli dish that was packed full of unexpected flavors (in a good way.) All in all a terrific evening. One warning, Uber, don’t drive. Parking is hard to find.

The food was absolutely delicious and the pacing was good. We didn't feel rushed even though the restaurant was very busy that night. We were celebrating our anniversary and the server brought us a complimentary dessert. We appreciated the gesture.

Disappointing. Pasta was good, salad was mediocre. Appetizer of cherry peppers was waaaaaaaay too spicy hot. Service was poor. Not many diners when we arrived and service was slow during our meal. Music was downright awful. What should be a nice dining experience with relaxing music was spoiled by some kind of obnoxious "club music" that you might find and a dance club.

We loved Lucca. The food was delicious. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. When the windows are open the hustle and bustle of Hanover street makes for great ambiance.

Amazing cuisine as always. The wild boar pasta special was delicious and the service impeccable as is typical at Lycca. And with the full length windows open on a warm summer night on the iconic Hanover Street, it was quite an experience.

We love Lucca! The food is always excellent. Some parts of the restaurant are noisy but they have another section that is quieter. Wish the bread was a bit nicer (although I'm sure a lot of people like it, it was too spongy for us). The chickpea basil spread with the bread was awesome. Both of our entrees and appetizer were delicious. Waiter offered to let me taste two different wines before deciding on a glass, which was nice. Definitely a great spot!

While I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal in Boston's North End, I would tell anyone that not dining at Lucca is a mistake. Lucca is the prized gem of Hanover Street and must not be missed.

Service very good from the reception to the server.
The waitress did a very good recomendation from the red wine list and we got two bottles.
Unfortunately the short ribs appetizer and the scallops from main dish were very very salty the sauce. The burgers had a good presentation but meat were very dry. The rigatoni plate had a very good taste but pasta tasted uncooked. The lamb chops were satisfying overall.
Hope they get more attention to the food and we will come back.
Thank you !

I've been to Lucca several times before Covid and I did notice the menu is less extensive now. Even so, it was still good. I ordered my Filet mignon medium butterflied but it came more medium well. Asides from that, everything else was very good.
