We had an amazing experience here. Nicholas was our waiter. He knew the menu and wine list extensively, gave great recommendations, was attentive, and a true professional. The food came out on time. We asked to share a dish, and on a very busy night, they took the time to split the dish for us. We ordered a few Appetizers and they brought them out at a good pace so that we were not overwhelmed. The main meals were rich in flavor and felt very much like an Italian grandma made them in them in the back for us. Made me feel like I was in Italy again. I would absolutely, and have already, recommend this restaurant. I’m jealous of your first time here, as ours was one of the best I’ve had in the North End, and I’m a frequent visitor.

Went to Prezza for New Years Eve and was a little disappointed. The food was okay but very small portions and I found it to be very rich. I had the Duck Breast which I enjoyed for the most part, but had hoped the accompanying sides (creamed fennel and swish chard) would have been more distinct. My boyfriend had the scallops, which he enjoyed but there were barely 5 of them and the plate was almost $40. We got creme brulee for desert, which was the best part of the meal.

Our server was outstanding and the wine list was great. I enjoyed the atmosphere, but would not come back for the food.

We actually received a gift card for Christmas and decided to use for New Years Eve. Wonderful meal- I had the filet with lobster risotto and my husband had the lamb. Both were very good. The bib lettuce salad was fresh and wonderful also. Too full for dessert! The service was excellent and everyone was efficient and friendly -starting with taking our coats at the door. Highly recommend when looking to eat a nice dinner in the North End.

We have dined at Prezza every time we visit Boston to see relatives (2-4 times a year) for the past 10 years. The service, food and atmosphere make Prezza a unique experience among North End restaurants. Local and seasonal ingredients further enhance the experience. We heartily recommend Prezza!

We had a great meal for our anniversary. Appetizers, main course meal and dessert were excellent. Service was great. Our waiter Paul was very tentative and personal. They gave us grappa and the dessert on the house just because of the occasion. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend it.

My son & I traveled to Boston to have a fun weekend. The North End was on our list. The bread and mushroom appetizers were awesome, and the best part of the meal.

My son ordered the Crispy Pork Chop and requested it medium +. The first 2 bites were good, and then he asked me why the color was different as he cut into it. We had to send it back for more time as it was raw.

I ordered the Grilled Lamb Chop. When the waiter brought me my dinner, it looked like a steak, not the lamb chop. I started to inspect it when I asked him. He took it away and said this was someone else's dinner and then took my plate over to another table and brought the dish from another table to me. The Chop was undercooked and also it came from another table which disturbed me.

Even though they were very busy, they were super accommodating that my flight was late so only 2 or 3 could be seated. Great variety to the good and outstanding knowledge by the servers of the menu. Definitely recommend.

The ambience is as elegant as ever, and it was very festive for the holidays. My bibb lettuce salad was excellent, but the ravioli dish (I had the one with ricotta and veal) were only so-so and smothered in sauce. Pretty disappointing. The service was also spotty, with periods of him hovering and never leaving our side and other periods where he was nowhere to be found.

Used to be one of my favorite restaurants. Unfortunately the dinner I had with my adult children wasn’t the quality I came to expect. Lamb chops were served rare not medium.
Ravioli just average. Just not as good as it used to be.

We started off with the charcuterie plate with cheese. Best pepperoni I ever had. I would go back just for that, and I'm not usually a big fan of pepperoni.

My husband had a wonderful pasta dish. My picky son was thrilled with his steak and he ate vegetables! (grilled asparagus). I had some lovely wine Etna Rossi with a delicious fish stew.

All in all - a lovely evening
