We are regulars in the North End. We have never eaten at Lucca, only been to the bar for pre-dinner cocktails and were looking forward to trying it! We had reservations for 4 on 10/8th at 7:45. We arrived at the Valet stand at 7PM and the Valet turned us away; as they were understaffed. When I spoke with the Owner, I was informed that it was Saturday night and it gets busy! While waiting at the bar, The Bartender forgot the drink order...15 minutes for a drink is a bit much. Our table wasn't ready until 8:45. Once seated, one of the folks in our party requested still water and the server didn't speak English and wasn't able to provide it. We ordered an Antipasto for 4, the server decided to bring an antipasto for 3 instead. The entrees were good, slightly different from what is listed here. While waiting for dinner to be served, and two trips to the Manager, we considered leaving since dinner wasn't served until 9:4o. The waiter was clearly overwhelmed. The server brought us 2 complementary desserts and Lemoncello's, we were ready to leave by that point, it was a little too late, as we had arrived that evening at 7pm. We will not return.

way over priced for what they give you. there are way too many other restaurants to ever consider this one again. what in the hell is a statler chicken anyway?

Food is good, but overpriced. Many other places to eat in the North End without getting screwed. Ordered the antipasto to split with a friend. We were there with our 3 kids. They charged us $15 for everyone at the table and then looked at me like I had 6 heads when I questioned why I has paying $75 for antipasto my kids didn't even want. Waitress was no help and the manager took off the 3 kids antipastos after I argued the point (very embarassing) charged us for 2 $30. Also the kids spaghetti and meatballs was $22. Too many other restaurants in the N. End for me to ever go back there!

Only one of our three dishes--scallops with lemon-chive risotto was better than steam table Italian. The tomato tart was insipid and the orrechiete were overcooked to the point of being dried out. We were at a table in the center and the noise level was intense. Not worth the money

I've eaten at Lucca many many times and always leave wishing I had room for more. The wild boar is out of this world! As is the muscle appetizer and the flourless chocolate cake. Service has always been impecable and the atmosphere is classy without being at all pretentious. Highly, highly recommended!

Perfect meal. I suggest trying the wild boar... amazing. The modest rating on service is only because our waiter was new and somewhat confused. Even so, the entire meal was A+ in nature. Highly recommend.
