Lucia Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
The food was very slow coming out, and when it arrived the pasta was not hot, the veal was mediocre at best, chewy and rubbery. The house special pasta with sausages and truffle oil was mushy and pasty and uninspired. The waiter was pleasant but service was very slow.
Lucia is really special. You could tell the manager Frank takes training his staff quite seriously. My three kids will always remember their fancy dinner for Mom’s birthday in the North End! Special thanks to the staff for encouraging us to hang around for some birthday singing from the servers. Thank you!
After over 8 years of dining here the first time, we returned to this quaint restaurant in the north end of Boston. As was our experience the last time, they did not disappoint. From the greeting at the door, to the romantic atmosphere, to the AMAZING food...it was a wonderful experience!!!
Another amazing meal at Lucia’s. You will never go wrong with the Veal Braciolettine alla Limone but we also got one of the specials - veal chops stuffed with prosciutto, spinach, mozzarella and fontina....sooo good my mouth is still watering! Overall their menu has a wide variety and we will definitely come back to try more!
The restaurant dining area is so beautiful and the food was great! We came at a very awkward time (between lunch & dinner) but the service was spectacular. My table did note that because we were one of the few tables in the restaurant we were being checked on a lot more frequently than normal. This was fine because we felt well looked after but it did make us feel somewhat rushed. Overall, wonderful experience! The hostess was very understanding, patient and accommodating - thank you so much!!
It’s New Years Eve 2017 at least for a few more hours..... What can I say, tonight brought tears to my eyes..... As we grow older we begin to appreciate what family and friends really mean to us.... Frank, Hector I don’t know how to Thank you for another amazing night at Lucia’s! Food & Service was OUTSTANDING! Frank, you always make us feel like family.... I’ll be back for years to come’. Buon anno! Love you guys!

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.
