Amazing. Food was fantastic, atmosphere was beautiful and the pumpkin risotto was one of the best dishes I've ever had. Go there and try it.
The food and service was great the only thing that could’ve been better is tables being spaced further apart.
We were celebrating our friend’s last day working as a first response team after 31 years service and wanted to treat her to a special meal. The service was outstanding! The chef came to the table to ensure our orders were correct.
My wife and I went to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The staff made it a very special night. The service was top shelf and the food could not have been better.
Incredible service. The food was the best thing I've eaten this year. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was perfect. The chef/owner took the time to chat with us at our table. What a great experience. Can't wait to go back!
From start to finish, everything was excellent. Terrific waiter, delicious food. Loved the visit from the chef. It was my husband’s Bday and we all really enjoyed it. Highly recommend!
Absolutely delicious! This was our first meal at Tresca but it will not be our last!
This was our second trip to Tresca and wish we could go back again today. The service people are welcoming and friendly and will chat with you, but they are not intrusive. It's like you are family coming home for a visit. The food is excellent. We had the pumpkin risotto. I thought it sounded good, but it was better that I could have imagined. Can't wait to visit again!
Food was amazing. Service was ok , we had a 915 reservation and our server was very nice but seemed to want to get us out quickly. We ordered an appetizer and two main courses. They appetizer came out and once we we’re finished with it about five minutes later our main courses came out.
The food and service were phenomenal at Tresca! Fresh baked bread, homemade noodles and the pumpkin risotto were our favorite parts.
Excellent service.. great night out , relaxing and food was amazing
Delicious Italian food! Loved the pumpkin risotto! Friendly waitstaff:)
Amazing food, outstanding service. Eat in or outside with heaters--wonderful experience in the heart of the North End.
Excellent service from Maria and wonderful food!
Great birthday celebration!
The cocktails were overpriced for that they were (watered-down sangria). The food was standard for the North End. Good, but not blown away.
Richard is a wonderful chef - the people who work there are fun and very nice.
I friend of mine was up from Florida and wanted to go to the North End. I select Tresca from my past experiences there. We love all our food. The veal chop parmigiana was awesome. Everything was a hit with my friend.
This was my first visit to Tresca. Was up for a day trip with my girlfriend and had made reservations for 7pm. We showed up a bit early, which worked out as they were able to seat us immediately. Due to it being a nice night, we elected to sit outside (which by the way if this becomes a thing after Covid 19, would be a great feature for the North End to continue).
Anyway, my girlfriend had the Ravioli Aragosta, and I had the Swordfish Puttanesca. Everything was absolutely delicious. The icing on the cake was the two Italian gentleman who came over and serenaded us. My girlfriend and I loved it!
Will be back and have recommended Tresca to everyone.
Tresca never disappoints. Excellent service from Felipe and always enjoy our chats with Chef Rich. A great touch that he takes the time to speak with guests. Food was outstanding and served at a nice pace. Complimentary donuts (our favorite dessert) to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Plenty of safety protocols in place for a very comfortable evening. Terrific!!
I went for dinner with my husband and daughter. Everything was scrumptious! I had the Swordfish over pasta and I was tempted to lick the plate. Unfortunately, we did not have room for dessert. Maybe next time. We will definitely be back.
Great service. Great food. Owner Rich is attentive hist.. always.
The died w great from start to finish. Excellent menu. Above excellent staff. Our waiter, Philip, was absolutely terrific and the busboy, Kevin was as well. Owner of the restaurant visited each table and was most friendly and charming. If we are in Boston again, we will definitely go there again. Must say that he pumpkin was scrumptious and the entire of pumpkin risotto served in a pumpkin was unbelievable.
Our waitress, Maria, was terrific. The food was delicious as was the wine. They added a free dessert for our anniversary which was a generous gesture. Great place to enjoy the vibrant fun and atmosphere in the North End!
Thank you for your kind review. We will also be sure to pass on to Maria!
Everything was great! No complaints except for the servers needing to wear masks.
Glad you enjoyed. We have a vey strict policy about wearing masks, even before the guests arrive.
Wow!! Amazing meal, service and atmosphere. Would definitely go back again and again!
I have been travelling for 6 weeks in New England and the pumpkin risotto dish here was by far the best meal I have eaten. Great service too. You can’t go wrong here! Love this place!
Glad you stopped in during your travels. People look forward to the Pumpkin Risotto every year at this time. Thank you!
The flavors, the presentation and the overall experience were outstanding. This should certainly be on your short list of must spots in the North End.

Dinner was amazing and love the street dining-euro vibes!!! Waiter and wait staff were excellent and brought out a dessert for us to celebrate(birthday and wedding cheers) with our last drink. Thank you Tresca!
Thanks for your comments and glad you enjoyed the new "street" scene in the North End!
The food is amazing, the service impeccable. The Chef / owner Rich came to the table to make sure everything was good. I had the fall special pumpkin risotto, unbelievably good.. I can’t even put in words how wonderful the flavors are. PLEASE try this restaurant my favorite in the North End
We love hearing comments and reviews like this! Thanks so much for dining with us. See you soon!
We loved our dinner at Tresca. Antony was our server and he was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, drinks and wine list. Chef Richard came to our table to check on our orders and made some great recommendations. He was also willing to adjust the dishes to suit our tastes. Our table was by the open window and was lovely with the evening breeze.
Overall it was an outstanding experience and we highly recommend this restaurant.
So glad you enjoyed your experience at Tresca. Chef Rich and our staff try to make every experience the best possible. Appreciate the recommendations!
Comfortable but classy ambiance, delicious food, and attentive staff. Cruz was my waiter. He was very professional and friendly.
Best veal chops I've ever had. The whole experience was amazing. Cost compared to some places I have been to in NYC was unbeatable.
Thanks so much for your comments. Always good to beat out NY too!!
Loved the food. We had both meat eaters and vegetarians. one person who has lived in Italy felt it was good as the food in Bologna
That's quite a compliment...thank you!
The food was outstanding and the wait staff was so nice! I used Spot Hero to park and everything worked out fantastic!
thank you! Next time you can use the Haymarket garage where we validate parking...$3 for 3 hours.
Wonderful meal and service!
