The food was great as always. We go here for my husbands holiday party and decided to go for New Year’s Eve as well. It wasn’t perfect for us because all we wanted was great food and a cozy not too loud place where we could all hear each other.

Enjoyed our food - great bartender made us feel welcome and helped navigate the drink menu. (He made a pear martini which was amazing.)

I had the Pollo Francesco and it was AMAZING. Kept eating well after I wasn’t hungry. My husband had the Quattro Formaggi and said it was very good.

The only negative was there seemed to be some mix up with the reservation- got there, seated no problem. But then got a call 30 minutes later asking where we were. Told them we were downstairs eating - and was promptly hung up on with some muttered commentary.

Would definitely come back as the food was good, service good, and nice ambience.

Very disappointed the entrees did not all come out the same time, my pasta was over cooked. We ate at Lucia's this summer and the food was wonderful all I can say I will not recommend or return to Lucia's. There is no consistency in the quality of food served. Many other restaurants to dine at in the North End.

Even though I live in brooklyn, New York, my boyfriend and I make a point to come to this restaurant whenever we visit family in Boston. The food is SO AMAZING and they have enough vegetarian options for people like us, who don't eat meat. We've sat upstairs and downstairs, and the atmosphere is adorable on every floor. The service is friendly and good, and although it's not cheap, the prices are more reasonable than other restaurants in the neighborhood. Once again, though, this food is frickin amazing. There are so many Italian places in the north end, it's hard to know which to go to, but in our opinion, this is the best.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dinners. Four out of five of us had the specials and they were excellent. They were very welcoming and friendly from the moment we walked in from the cold to the time that we went back out into the cold. I felt like I was there guest...just the experience I am looking for when dining in the North End.

We were lucky to get reservations at Lucia as they were very busy on Saturday night. After eating there, we know why. The food was delicious. Everyone commented on how good their meal was. We ordered across the menu having steak, chicken Parmesan, Pollo Lucia and veal. All were seasoned perfectly. The service was attentive and friendly. Next time we are in the North End we will be back.

We have a yearly tradition around Christmas to spend a few nights in the city with our kids. Our go to restaurant closed 5 yrs ago, so we have been searching for a new spot ever since. We think we have found it at Lucia! And our server, David, was a huge reason why! We will definitely be regulars!

I've been to Lucia's a few times. It's one of my favorite North End restaurants. It was a quiet Monday night so noise level was quiet, usually when it's full it's a bit noisier. Service as always was excellent. We started our meal with a delicious antipasto with Barretta (sp?) cheese. Loved that cheese! Then we had veal saltimbocca and melanzane parmigiana. Both delicious. Unfortunately we didn't have any room for dessert.

I was in college the very first time I ate at Lucia's Ristorante and have continued to eat there.
The food is awesome and since my mother and father are from the Sulmona, Italia area, the food speaks to me! Our meals on Sunday night were amazing; beautiful presentation, generous portions and so tasty! We will definitely be back with more friends soon.

We dined at Lucia’s on a snowy Saturday night in December. Our waiter, Josh was delightful, knew the wine list and dinner menu very well, and when asked he offered excellent recommendations. Every one of us loved our dinners and the anti pasto and salad were great and just right in terms of not being over filling before dinner. Wait staff were attentive but unobtrusive. Dinner was excellent. Price was about $180 with appetizers, entrees and drinks before tip.
In short, Lucia’s was very enjoyable and would definitely recommend.

Excellent dinner. Even though this was a quiet Tuesday night, Lucia’s had their chef set up in the dining room, where he made the most delicious snowflake pasta dish! Perfect to celebrate the holidays with family and friends! Our waiter was attentive, very personable and we were treated so well! I can’t recommend Lucia’s enough. So many tourists miss this little gem because they pick a restaurant located earlier on the street. But Lucia’s is just a little further - opposite the park near the Old North Church, and is so worth the few extra steps. We’ve been coming here for years and it never fails to delight! And the ambiance is warm and romantic! Love this restaurant!

Nice meal for a group of 4. We sat downstairs which we really liked. The food was delicious. Especially enjoyed the Pollo Lucia. It was my daughter's first time dining in the North End. She and her friends loved it. Nice wine list too. I must also comment on our waiter Lewis. He was a very pleasant young man who provided top notch service. Thank you for a wonderful night!
