We happened to walk by this restaurant while visiting Boston and saw how busy the place was and decided to come back later for dinner. We went an hour later and they found a table for us immediately and seated us. I had the margarita...More

We visited Lucca during our Boston Foodie Tour and boy was it a great way to end our tour. The three pasta dishes we sampled were all delicious but my favorite was the ravioli. The cheese bread was heaven and I could have eaten that...More

Great food and service, lovely atmosphere and good location in Boston's Little Italy. My husband had the scallops (best ever) and I had the Orchiette casserole. Our best dinner ever in that area!

I'm still dreaming of the lobster gnocchi. It was delicious. My friends had the linguine and the ravioli which both were wonderful, too. However the gnocchi won the prize for best dish at dinner.

Very good food and excellent service. The pasta is made fresh and is delicious. I wish I could go back!! Christian, our waiter, couldn't have been more attentive. We will definitely go back if we're ever in Boston.

Went with friends for weekend visit to Boston. Reservations were made ahead of time, which was recommended. Ordered the Lobster Gnocchi, which was prepared perfectly, but was not brimming with flavor. Meal was very enjoyable and nonetheless no bad experience in any way. I just...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
