Every staff member I encountered was friendly and helpful. Even as a solo diner, I was seated at a beautiful table by the window. The service and quality of food was excellent. I will definitely return.
Great food and service.
Richard was walking around the dining room making sure everything was to our satisfaction.
The meals were not only beautiful but delicious
From the minute that we walked in we were treated very well
Polite & courteous staff all around
Table service was top notch
& the chef/owner checks on the tables personally to make sure everyone is pleased
Super personal service- from the waiter to the front desk- we even had the Chef come out to ask about our entrees after we had finished. The food itself was delicious (Seafood fradiavalo and Lobster stuffed ravioli). Also had a great view of Hanover street. I had noted in comments ‘surprise birthday dinner’ and they took it upon themselves to create a chocolate molten birthday treat. We will be back!
Food was excellent. Server was very attentive and offered suggestions. Food came out very quickly.
$28 valet parking! Meal was fine, downstairs seating was a little cold. Service was ok, not exceptional. Maybe because we visited on a Monday night.
Thanks for visiting. The valet is an outside company so neither price nor service is controlled by Tresca.
Tresca has fabulous food (try the Ray Bourque Veal Parm) and wonderful ambiance (especially seated next to a fireplace). It's my favorite spot in the North End.
The food came out quick and it was amazing! Our waitress was very sweet and the whole experience was great.
Outstanding evening at Tresca. Chicken parm egg roll a unique starter. Swordfish Puttanesca with just the right amount of pasta was fresh, light and delicious. Perfect portions to leave room for dessert - cinnamon donut holes. Service was excellent and paced just right. Attentive but not intrusive. A truly relaxing dinner and great that Chef Ansara stops by to chat and ask about your choices. Nice wines & cocktails. Can't wait to return.
Our favorite restaurant, outstanding favorable menu
The food was so good
Great to hear!
Perfect spot for Valentine’s Day!
$50 Fri Diablo was terrible and only ate as I was hungry and in a rush ! To add more spice they added Sliced jalapeños in an Italian dish. Glad I went there so now I know why I never have to go back
Service was excellent, tables close to neighbors. But excellent meal!
Our server was absolutely clueless. I ordered a glass of wine from the wine list and she told me they did not carry that wine. The calamari pasty, the egg plant Parm very rubbery without flavor, The Carpaccios cut much too thick. Very disappointing. We will not go back.
Sorry you didn't have a good experience. Hopefully you spoke to somebody while you were in the restaurant so we could make it better.
Overall everything is great! I definitely will give it another try.
We loved Trescas! We were greeted by Richard Ansara, the Owner/Chef and he was very friendly.
Richard said if we need anything prepared personally, he would gladly take care of us.
The food and service was superb. We would go back anytime!
Great review and makes us happy that you were pleased. We look forward to your next visit.
Great find. Never been her before but we will definitely go back. Spacious upstairs seating. Service was attentive, friendly, helpful, fun. Best server I have had in a long while! Great menu of eclectic and interesting Italian dishes was fabulous. Don’t miss the stuffed meatballs!
My wife and I were extremely happy with the entire experience. The waitstaff were very helpful . Our food was delicious, and served by Chef Rich Tresca Ansara himself . We also noticed that he greated every table of guests .We will definitely will return again
If I could give this restaurant 10 stars I would. Could not recommend more.
I had been wanting to go here for years, I am so glad I finally made it. The food was some of the best I’ve ever had, and the service was top notch. The wait staff was very attentive and on top of everything. Frequent visits from chef rich and some nice conversations with him made the experience that much better. It is very evident that the owners and management really care and do everything they can to make the diners experience memorable.
My wife has never had never enjoyed dinner so much. Thank you for making her first North End experience one she will never forget
Outstanding service and food.
Great place for a date night! The service was fantastic and the food was unreal.
Amazing experience. Service was outstanding and the food amazing! Can’t wait to go back.
Had dinner at Tresca last evening for hubby's birthday. Met the chef at the bar beforehand, and mentioned my diabetic way of eating. He said NO PROBLEM! I will cook whatever you want without breading. Sat and chatted a few minutes. When we went upstairs for dinner, the waiter said he already knew what I wanted (and that my hubby wanted the Ray Bourque special). Loved both meals and especially the personal handling. When dinner was over a Tiramisu was brought with a candle! We only mentioned in passing that we were there for hubby's birthday. Those special touches are what make this the best restaurant in the North End. Food is fantastic! and so is Chef Rich! We will be back more often.
Service was good. Presentation of food was nice, however the actual taste and overall quality of food was pretty disappointing. Eggplant appetizer was overly crisp. Lobster mushrooms were decent but couldn’t really taste the lobster. Presentation of the deal cuts were great but the actual taste was missing.
Sorry you were disappointed in your meals. We obviously strive to be at our best at all times. Hope you will consider giving us another try, and let us know you are in.
Dinner was incredible and our waiter was very kind. We had the lobster ravioli dish as an appetizer, veal special and a lemon garlic shrimp dish. We were licking our plates and brought half our meals home. Will definitely be returning.
So great to hear reviews like this! Thanks for your comments and we hope to see you again soon!
Terrific food, great spot to host clients, guests or friends before a game!
Very lovely place for a birthday dinner date!
Thank you! Happy Birthday!
The food and service were absolutely outstanding!!! This is my new favorite spot in the North End!
The staff was extremely attentive and informative! The specials were explained in detail and all our questions on the menu were answered really well. Additionally, our glasses were never empty and the burratta appetizer was incredibly fresh. My boyfriend ordered the ricotta truffle gnocchi which was very good and I ordered the bolognese which was some of the best I ever had and the portion sizes were big so you definitely get your money's worth! Went for my boyfriend's birthday and they were kind enough to give us his birthday dessert on the house which was also very good (chocolate cake with vanilla gelato!). Their espresso martinis were to die for as well! Will definitely be back!
We love reading reviews like this! Thanks so much for your kind comments, and glad you enjoyed your experience at Tresca!
We had a birthday celebration tonight at Tresca, and could not have asked for more!
From the moment we walked in the door, the staff went out of their way to make us all feel welcome and incredibly well taken care of.
The food was simply amazing, and atmosphere made for a truly special night.
Thank you so much to everyone at Tresca for making this birthday a VERY happy one!
That's great to hear and so glad you had a fun celebration at Tresca!
The food is delicious and the service was great as well.
Always a great choice! The Veal Milanese was perfectly cooked.
Best Italian joint in the North End!!! Veal Parm is to die for!!!!
Awesome, thank you!
Our wait staff was great, we never felt rushed. They took our wine. App and main meal oders seperately. We appreciated the relaxed pace of dining. The meatballs are a great app and I loved the lobster ravioli's. They brought us a complimentary desert. Lava cake as we were celebrating a birthday. You do not feel crowded, there is ample room. We'll be back.
Great to hear. Happy birthday and thank you!
Birthday dinner, they had forgotten the roses I special ordered, they went out of their way to go buy some at a local store and bring them for us!! The food is just too good nothing should taste that good! Definitely a little expensive but I would pay for that food twice daily, it is so good
Thank you, glad you enjoyed your meals at Tresca. We always look out for our customers!
Always stop at Tresca before attending a Boston Bruins Hockey game at the Garden.
Food is always Excellent with extremely good Service.
One day we hope to see The Captain there. The Chef has come out to check how all our dinners were everytime we have dined at Tresca.
