Great experience, and amazing food and service. Only negative thing was being seated right by the door and having cold air blow in so we were pretty chilly the whole night and had to keep our jackets on. Otherwise would highly recommend (especially if not seated near the door in the winter)
Best place on Hanover!
Service was one of the strangest experiences I have ever had. We weren’t even able to order and left almost immediately
My favorite restaurant of all time
Sat outside and people watched. Food was very good. No outdoor liquor license Wine only.
The food is fantastic, the owner is great, and the experience is classic Italy. Love this place!
Not sure if this place changed ownership but huge difference from last year at this time it went from excellent to mediocre in one year very sad sorry to say I won’t be back
The food and service was very good. Due to COVID, we were seated upstairs. It was private, but didn’t have the same energy as sitting in the main restaurant area. Overall, a nice 10-year anniversary dinner.
My shrimp was overcooked and the pasta was dry. The mushrooms were good. I wish I had asked for a side of sauce,that is my bad. My daughter ate her are whole plate and enjoyed it.
The service was great!
While I didn’t think it was horrible, it certainly was not delicious. It was a typical Italian restaurant.
Best food and cocktails I’ve had in Boston! Loved the go getter attitude and when I couldn’t decide between two things the waiter said... “I’ll pick for you”
My family really enjoyed their meals. My son had the pasta with meatballs and my husband and I had the mushroom/sausage dish. It was really good!
Cristiano was the best server and very knowledgeable about food and drink!! Great spot
Really pleased with portion sizes and the food was well prepared.
Lovely small family run restaurant with great authentic Italian food! Not over crowded and great service!
Went out to dinner with one of my girlfriends - we had a great time. Everything was good. Great value for sure! Will go back again.
Everything was fantastic like always. Nice outdoor set up for safety
Ice cold in there but hey it’s covid. Hard to say I loved it because with covid not the same experience. Food was good so was wine
Went on a Saturday night, ate inside and had a party of 4. Place was busy which is always a good sign. Appetizers were good, one main had an over cooked Salmon dish and one main came out cold which was sent back.
Waiter was apologetic and professional about the 2 mains, they comped us 1 dessert and a glass of wine for the inconvenience. I would try it again during the week as the food was good, just had a bad night with the 2 mains.
One of the rare times my son and I strayed from our favorite North End restaurant to try a new one. We are both glad that we did. Lucia's take on the classics was "spot on." Fantastic flavors, and very good portions (not too huge, not to small) . The pomodoro sauce was soooo good, my son challenged me to recreate it. Service was very much top notch. And we both appreciated the pizzelas we received at the end of our meal. We will definitely be returning!
Excellent meal and service!
We had reservations at 5pm on a Sunday, we were sat outside and waited 10min and nobody acknowledged us, then we asked to move inside because our kids were cold and we sat for 10min and all we got was water and no waiter/waitress came over so we left because our kids were starving and we were thirsty. We left at 5:30
Food was ok...been here twice and service is never great, they kept taking away our plates when we were still eating.
This restaurant was amazing! The food was so good and the service was so quick and they were so polite! Definitely recommend this place!
We had a wonderful dinner. As Lucia is located farther down Hanover street, there are far less crowds walking by. Their outdoor seating is blocked off, with some heaters, next to the church. It was a really lovely spot to sit. Our server, Jess, was fantastic. The foot was served piping hot. We would definitely recommend and will return.
We really appreciated how Lucia's have set up their outside seating. We will definitely try to return before winter's cold hits!
The food was amazing
Good food. Enthusiastic help. Excellent Ambience.
It was our first time dining out in 6 months. Dining at Lucia was like coming home. Christiano was a great host! The food was amazing as always.
Wonderful meal and wine sitting outside with COVID rules followed
Great food, great service! Nice ambience away from the crowds and noise on the other end of Hanover Street. Definitely recommended.
We love it there!
Really no ambiance at all. No table linen. Anti pasto was poorly made and presented. Cold cuts cut too thick.
Delicious, authentic Italian food. The set up outside was perfect and our server Christiano was great!
We wrote in the reservation we were celebrating a birthday and not one person (host, server, etc) said happy birthday to my boyfriend. I’ve worked in restaurants for years and when people come to a restaurant to celebrate that special occasion, you should acknowledge it. It was pretty disappointing. Especially in a time where people are out of work and it’s a pandemic, you should do whatever you can to ensure you get returning business. We aren’t sure if we will be back despite the food being so great.
Lucia restaurant is serviceable but not memorable. With all the amazing options in the North End I would go elsewhere. Food was decent not exceptional and prices were high for quality and portion size. Server was polite and friendly but didn’t seem to know much about the food. We ordered a fish dish, Penne vodka and a chicken limon as well as bruschetta and calamari. Apps were better than entrees. Penne vodka was my favorite of the three entrees... safest. However not the most exceptional penne vodka out there... but good.
Our server was so sweet! We made a last minute reservation and was able to get in that night. We had the option of inside or out.
Amazing experience! Food was so delicious and we had a great time
Awesome love Christiano!!!
Authentic Italian food. Friendly host and great location in the North end
