The meal that we ate was extremely good with excellent service. We had not booked but we were fitted in. There is an area with a bar & TV but we were in a quieter area, which on a personal level we preferred.

You won’t find much innovation at Lucca, but you will find good quality Italian food in the standard upscale American interpretation, with excellent service. A small plate of salumi with olive oil was an excellent start to the meal, and the spicy tomato soup that...More

Went there for dinner with a group of friends recently. It's a busy place, we had to wait 25min for our table even though we had a reservation. They serve great Italian food and have a nice selection of wines. Will surely recommend.

My husband and I loved his birthday dinner at Lucca. We were greeted with warmth and friendliness and led to a great table by the open window. Our server, Maggie, was wonderful, food was delicious. A fantastic experience!

Beautiful Italian ambiance with high level of noise and family environment. We all loved the tomato soup which was outstanding. The rest of the main course items were superb. The desert of chocolate tart and pana cotta where delicious

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
