Located at the heart of Hanover Street, Lucia Ristorante is an institution in Boston's North End. Opened in 1977, Lucia was the first restaurant to bring authentic Italian cuisine to Boston's oldest neighborhood. We continue to combine traditional Italian favorites with innovative new dishes in our distinctive atmosphere. Ample summertime patio seating is available in the newly bricked courtyard of our neighbor, St. Stephen's Church.

    Food really competes with the best in North End in terms of pasta! I had the parpadelle bolognese and it was amazing. My only complaint was the portion size being incredibly tiny for a dinner portion, especially for the price of $24 a plate.

    This is a cozy restaurant with a good ambience to grab a snack or a drink. The food was good but nothing extraordinary. They didn't clean the seafood enough before cooking it. The servers are young and inexperienced therefore the service was just ok.

    We were looking for an old-school Italian restaurant on the north end of Boston and we could not have chosen better than Lucia Ristorante.  the service and the quality of food was impeccable. Exactly what you expect from an institution like Lucia Ristorante..

    We enjoyed our meal at Lucia restaurant very much. The food was delicious and the portions were just right, not grossly huge like some other restaurants. The 4 stars for air conditioning - we were very cold, and our bread came with our dinner. We would have liked it prior to the meal, but not a big deal. The only other thing was we were seated upstairs by ourselves, which felt a little weird, and we got to listen to and watch servers get ready for a large party. However, the food was really great and we would definitely return.

    This is an excellent restaurant. You will not regret to eat here, but apparently there is no A/C, so, in hot days it get really hot inside.

    The best eggplant parm ever! The Caesar was also good. We were there for lunch on a Monday so it was pretty empty. Services was good and I talked to the manager who was very friendly. I would definitely recommend eating here.

    Unfortunately the food was subpar. Noise level was out of control. On a positive note the bartenders were great and our cocktails were perfect
