We had a great dinner at Lucca. Gracious reception, crowded, lively but not too noisy. The Carpaccio starter was excellent and my Papardelle pasta was perfectly cooked in a delicious meat sauce. The mussel dish was also tasty with a superb broth. Excellent service too...More

Dining with business colleagues. Each one of us had something different on the menu. I was very please with my choice: filet. Some of my colleagues were not that impressed, given the prices on the menu. Overall, I'd give it a 4.5/5.

As a restaurant owner I can say that all of the Italian restaurants on Hanover Street are excellent, but what separates Lucca is the amazing customer service and hospitality. They went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. They went above and...More

We ended up at Lucca when we could not get reservations at 2 higher rated Italian restaurants. Couldn’t be happier this is where we ended up. The staff was friendly and the food was fantastic! From the wedge salad to the chicken and Osso Buco...More

First, the food. I wanted to go to the North End and pretend I was in Italy. I have been to Lucca, and spent nearly a month in Tuscany, so my standards for that were pretty high. The food passed with flying colors. I had...More

Wonderful 7 course meal that was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The staff was top notch and was very attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend Lucca any time you're in Boston.

We have been here twice for birthday dinners with teens and family friends. What a fantastic experience. It’s pricey (about $50-100 pp), but worth it. Don’t miss their carpaccio, the Ravioli is divine, and we’ve never had better lamb chops anywhere. The portrait art on...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
