    Loud, tired looking, and dirty. Food was good not great. Despite being overworked and not knowing the menu, our waiter was kind, and worked quickly to get us our meal. Not the Lo Conte’s I remember.

    If you are in a hurry, eat here! We were rushed the whole time. Our dinners were brought out when we just started our salad. It was a dinky table by the stairs to the rest room - I can't believe it was in high demand. It was our anniversary, we wanted to relax and enjoy. The whole process took less than an hour.

    I am surprised, with the 50 other Italian restaurants within a few blocks of this place, that they are still open. No one loved their food, portion sizes are like 2-3 times what you need (wasted food) and the service was awful. It was also very boring inside - decor was meh at best. Go somewhere else. Terramia is basically next door and was much better!

    Food was good, comparable to the neighborhood. Service was disinterested… like hardly looked at us while we were ordering. Was there someone outside who you’d prefer to wait on?

    I could have made a better meal. I had veal Marsala and the veal was prepared in small pieces, not a cutlet, it was rubbery. The Marsala sauce wasn’t good, the ziti was chewy, under cooked. The arancini was a big ball of mush. They only served wine and beer, no mixed drinks. I was there early so there was no noise, but as I left more customers came in and then it became noisy. Very disappointed for what appeared to be a traditional North End restaurant.

    LoConte’s was recommended to us from family and friends. This was our first visit and we had our Canadian cousins with us. 2 teenage boys and 4 adults. EVERYONE loved their dishes. We were able to be seated a tad earlier than our reservation, our waiter was fabulous, and our food was phenomenal! We all highly recommend LoConte’s and we will definitely be back!

    Our server was spot on with his recommendations for my 2 teen daughters and myself. Fresh pasta in the Bolognese and the chiopino was delish. The pesto with tortellini was fantastic. Everything was just as I remember from back when I lived in the north end years ago. I will be back soon.

    Good food and plenty of it, come hungry and plan on bringing home leftovers. Small and intimate, can get a bit loud. The ambiance reminds me of dinner at my Italian neighbors house when I was growing up, big family, big noise, big hearts.

    The food was good but not great, and the service questionable. Our waiter seemed like he could not be bothered he brought the check without asking if we wanted dessert which we did but come to find out they don’t even have dessert only tiramisu. Only beer and wine too no other alcohol

    This was a goodbye dinner for a friend of mine and so she had picked this place last minute. The service was ok but the food was a huge disappointment. I am Italian so I normally tend to avoid the north end as I believe most places do not serve good food and it is mostly a tourist trap. I was disappointed to see the ‘Bruschetta’ which ended up being saggy bread with melted cheese and tomatoes on top. My friend order the ‘Bolognese’ and she noticed it was made with just tomato sauce instead of meat? I ordered the ‘Linguini with shrimp’ mine came with only 6 normal shrimps. In addition, both of our dishes had absolutely no flavor at all. So many ingredients missing. Overall the food was a disappointment and will not go to this place again.

    Close your eyes for a minute and you'll actually think you are in a trattoria in Italy! Family run, friendly and the best service staff ever. New Spring menu and old favorites to choose from and every generous portion of deliciousness is worth the price!
