    Ordered a ceaser salad and it came out with brown lettuce. Sent it back. Other food was tasty but overpriced at $30-$35 for a pasta entree.

    Excellent experience. The waiter was outstanding and timed the service and food perfectly. Great venue to host our two out of town guests. The restaurant was humming and that made the whole experience exciting. Also the host/hostess handled our reservation very flexibly as we were 15 minutes early. All good.

    Lucca was the perfect restaurant for me and my family to dine after the theater. Our waiter was fantastic. He made great recommendations and was very pleasant. The overall atmosphere was one of happiness. The food was incredible. From the appetizers to the desserts. Everything was delicious. Authentic Italian food. We will definitely make lucca a family tradition.

    This is not only untraditional Italian food, but somewhat bizarre. The flavor profiles of the dishes had all 5 folks at our tables raising an eyebrow. As an example, the lobster gnocchi topped with so much celery seed that all you could taste was celery, and there were big chunks of pancetta in the muscles, taking over the garlic/white wine flavors of the broth. Dessert was the disappointment. Crème brûlée with granulated sugar on top that hadn’t been torched enough to caramelize, so it was quite literally grainy sugar, and the “chocolate torte” was a microwaved lava cake. Will not be back.

    Dined with another couple at Lucca’s Saturday evening. Arrived a little early for our reservation but were nevertheless promptly led to our table by the maitre d’, a lovely spot in the window. As we were waiting for our drinks, a bowl of focaccia arrived accompanied by a pesto spread. Delicious. Calamari app came in a tomato sauce with just the right amount of spice. The meatball app was generous, the meatballs a juicy delight. All four entrees were excellent. I had the boar ragu and would go back just for that. Service throughout was superior. Attentive water service. Meals delivered and plates cleared timely. Our server was pleasant and quietly efficient. There are a lot of choices in the North End. If you haven’t tried Lucca, do yourself a favor and go.

    Had dinner at Lucca on a cold Saturday night in January. Would recommend making reservations - we arrived at 5:45 and were seated downstairs immediately. By 6:30, the restaurant was full. Staff was excellent - waiter was attentive, our water glasses were kept full, dirty plates were promptly removed. Food was delicious. We had the arugula salad and grilled asparagus as appetizers - both outstanding. My dinner companion had the rigatoni bolognese and I had the mushroom ravioli - both fabulous choices. For dessert, I had the chocolate torte and she had the tiramisu. Can't go wrong with either. Generous servings of all items so we left stuffed! Highly recommend the blood orange martini as well! Wow! My only complaint is with the music. We did NOT need to have thumping bass as background noise during our meal.

    Nice place. Service was quite good and friendly. Food we thought was just OK. My wife’s ravioli was way undercooked. Tough. Need more time in boiling water. She left a lot behind. We ordered a salad that had peaches…or said it would. Pears were substitutes. Not an issue but should have been told ahead of time. It wasn’t very busy when we arrived so noise level was very low and nice.

    The dining experience was one that pre dates Covid. Remember when wait staff were attentive, cleanliness counted and the food was something you thought about the next day? Well this was exactly that! From the perfect bourbon old fashion (I broke dry 60 for it) to the tiramisu that ended our meal. I had dined in North End back in November at another restaurant and was so disappointed. Lucca is now on my return list.
