There are many great restaurants to choose from in the North End and Lucia's is one of them! The food is consistently good and the prices are fair (for Boston). There is an extensive list of pasta dishes and the Secondi options are varied (and come with a side of pasta). I have been here several times and have always... More

We enjoyed our family dinner at this magnificent ristorante. Valet parking was conveniently located in front of the restaurant. Service was very friendly and attentive with kids and everyone in the group. Dishes were very good. Marco Polo expectedly delicious with seafood and pasta. However, the Ammazzafame was even better or more daring. Wine selections were excellent as well. Great... More

We dined her because we had a gift certificate. It is nice restaurant with good ambiance. My husband and I got to sit in a nice cozy booth by the window. Our server was very nice and the menu selection was pretty good. My husband ordered the veal chop special for $36 and it came with a veggie and pasta... More

A little taste of Italy in Boston! Minestrone and salad were awesome. Ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio at $34, not terrible prices and delicious! The Gnocchi was amazing. Left with a full belly and small bill. Service was very friendly.

This North End fixture hasn't changed much in the three plus decades since I first heard of it. It is old school Italian weighted towards red sauce dishes. The standards are there on the menu like a Sinatra songbook. Eggplant, chicken or veal parmigiana, braciole, lasagna, veal preparations, calamari, meatball sides and so on. The menu is not extensive and... More

We used to wait in line at Giacomo's but Lucias is better and they take reservations. Their veal chop, veal Marsala, veal Parma and their tortellini quatro frommagi areThe best. Don't miss it
