Came here for an awesome meal with family from out of town. The food was incredible. Atmosphere was fun though a little noisy. Will definitely return.

The wife and I had lunch on a blustery Friday in March at Lucia Ristorante. We were one of only three tables occupied (actually we were in a comfy booth). We admired the murals on the ceiling and walls, enjoyed for the most part the Italian music on the sound system, and had friendly attentive service from the moment we... More

The three-star rating is giving Lucia the benefit of the doubt; I just don't believe their service is this poor on a regular basis. First the good: the food. Excellent. Certainly at the upper end of the North End's mid-priced Italian-American restaurants. Fettuccini Alfredo was flavorful and creamy but not too thick with delicious pasta. Bistecca alla Arrabiatta was spicy... More

What an amazing experience from beginning to end. Food was incredible. The steak dish was phenomenal and the mussels were too. Ask for Hector the waiter-he is fun and do knowledgeable. Thanks to Frank (GM) for the Limoncello. Can't wait to go back!!

The food was excellent, the ambiance was super authentic and the entire staff was so friendly. Everyone made sure we got exactly what we wanted. The manager, Frank came by and made sure we were taken care of. We pictured in our heads what we wanted from a true Italian meal in the North End of Boston and they delivered... More

The glory of Boston's North End are the longstanding family-run restaurants specializing in specific regional cuisines. Lucia, now celebrating its 30th anniversary, serves the dishes of Abruzzo, that beautiful green region astride central and southern Italy. My partner and I shared a generous plate of delicious antipasti - prosciutto, salami, capocollo, cheeses, olives, vegetables and excellent bread (scarpette) - then... More

We had a family gathering and they could not have been more accomodating. The food we preordered was produced at the times we specified and that food and the main courses were excellent. Although the restaurant is small and full when we were there, the service was terrific with the wait staff at our beck and call. Whether for family... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
