Tresca was everything that I hoped it would be plus more. We had our first visit for Valentine’s Day, having easily made the reservations online in advance. We were slightly early and greeted by an amazing concierge staff then seated immediately. We had a window table that was set back in the corner and surprisingly private. Sarah took care of us and she was absolutely wonderful. The lobster ravioli to die for! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was the best food and service we’ve ever had. The rose at the end of the meal was a really sweet touch. We can’t wait to go back for many more special dinners!

Great location, nice inside, service was absolutely awful. We weren’t even acknowledged at our table for about 20 minutes. After that it seemed we were a nuisance to them. They asked if we would like fresh pepper for our salad. We said yes and they never returned.

With that said the food was very good.

The staff was friendly and the bar area was great. We were seated downstairs, directly next to the stairway, which had very little atmosphere--lacked the feel of the North End. The food was good, but for the price, I was expecting exceptional ($40 Fruitti De Mare). I've had much better experiences at other restaurants in the North End. I would go back for the bar, but most likely not to dine.

We ordered 1/2 size pastas and a few apps. Gnocchi was amazing. Mushroom in fillo was great too. Got loud as we were wrapping up.

The food was excellent. Very nice atmosphere. They were very accommodating when I moved my reservation up an hour. It was my first time there, and I will definitely be back.

Our first time at Tresca's. Great food, excellent service, nice atmosphere. Some items are a bit pricey. Might be more of a special occasion place. Would definitely go again and have already recommended to others

It was our first time at Tresca and as self declared foodies who frequent lots of restaurants - especially in the north end - we were excited to try it. We started off with cocktails from the drink menu - which were fabulous - and the chicken parm egg rolls and calamari as appetizers. Both were awesome - our only complaint was that the chicken parm egg rolls were actually one egg roll cut in half so it was hard to “share” this app with 3 people. 2 of us ordered the Vitelli Milanese as our entrees - it came topped with an arugula “salad” and fresh grated parm cheese. The cut of veal was great - nice and lean decent sized piece cooked to perfection. The “salad” on top was very flavorful. I do wish this came with some type of a side - whether it be a veggie or a scoop of pasta. If we hadn’t ordered appetizers, the piece of veal alone wouldn’t have completely filled us as an entree. The third person in our group ordered chicken piccata which was a hearty portion with a side of rigatoni which she loved. The waitstaff was attentive without being overbearing and everyone was super friendly and polit. Overall we were fans of this place and will definitely be back - highly recommend!

I am in Boston several times per year on business and Tresca is one of my go to restaurants. Love the ambiance and the food. The service is always good as well.
