The restaurant was loud and busy, but with our reservation we were able to be seated immediately which was amazing. The waiter promptly brought over a carafe of water for us which filled 3 of our glasses and we had to flag him down after a few minutes to get another carafe. The appetizers looked delicious so we order three (Rice Balls, Fried Mozzerella, and Bruschetta). The portions were generous and the Mozzerella and Bruschetta was very good, but the Rice Balls lacked flavor.
When we ordered our entrees the waiter tried to speed up our ordering, as a result coming across rude.
My daughter ordered the Veal Parmesan which was over cooked and tough, my son ordered the Gnocchi with a Bolognese Sauce (in my opinion the gnocchi was too stiff indicating too much flour was added when being made) and the sauce was just OK. My wife ordered a shrimp dish which she enjoyed, and I ordered the chicken parm which was just OK.
Wine selection was decent and the pricing appeared very reasonable with a good selection in the $40 range.
All in all it was a nice night out in the North End and we may return to Lo Compte some day, but not on a Sat night.

LoContes is always my number one destination when friends are in town and ask to go to the North End. I have been going here for years and have always had an excellent meal. I think it is one of the best Italian restaurant in Boston.

Great pasta! The fried artichokes were amazing and the arancini's were delicious. We had the best time with our waiter, who was super personable and carried a chair across the restaurant for our last minute addition. He recommended some great wines as well. Solid Italian food, portions were fairly large but not ridiculous like they can sometimes get. I also recommend the muscles.

We had 2 people waiting on us a d it was still slow service. We sat for 15mins before someone came over. We order wine recommended by the waiter and it was very good. The bread took 30 mins to arrive wirhout the bread oil which took another 10mins to arrive. I ordered the chicken parm, and it was not good. If you claim to be an italian restaurant in the north end you cant mess up the chicken parm. The chicken was chewy and i could not eat it. My wife's plate was actually very good and good flavor but over all i would not go there again.

Food was very good. Bread and oil dip too heavy spiced.
was looking for a little variety of dessert, but that's okay.
entrees were delicious and good serving size.
salads could have been presented better with more variety and
need choices of dressing for the house salad.

Food was average North End fare. They work hard to get the food to you from the kitchen quickly. The place was buzzing and obviously has a following. I liked our appetizers better than my entree. It was good but I expected more. It struck me as expensive for what we got. We weren't rushed but our waiter removed plates of those who finished their meal before others had finished which I always feel sends a message to the slower eaters to get a move on. I'm sure he felt he was helping by clearing the table for us. We enjoyed the meal and our experience but when I next go back to the North End I'll probably try a different place.

First the good, OT reservation honored spot on. The bad, had to ask for bread, once we ordered waiter was scarce. Food ok, could have been warmer, but with the scarce waiter I guess that makes sense.

We made a reservation but it was not initially recognized. It seemed like more of a nuisance for them to serve us then seeing us as valuable customers. Food was ok but service was lacking. Food came out cold and our daughters food came out 15 minutes later without an apology.

Food was mediocre at best, Calamari was cold and bland, Meals were below average, Not much flavor. We were stuffed in a corner by the door that opened every 10 seconds and it was freezing cold. There are a lot of places in the north end and I find it hard to understand how this place survives , I wouldn’t go back
