We were very excited to visit Tresca for the first time and spent a lengthy time researching restaurants to visit. We settled on Tresca for the menu and location. The staff was very friendly from the start and we loved the atmosphere. We sat, ordered drinks and appetizers. The drinks were good and the apps delicious. The calamari was exceptional.... More

The salmon was absolutely delicious, a generous size piece served with garlic mashed potatoes (could have been a little more moist for me, others in the party thought they were yummy). The chicken was served with polenta and was tasty. Bread was moist and delicious. The cannoli and tiramisu were good. Wait staff were very attentive but not over-bearing. They... More

I have always heard that the North End in Boston is home to fantastic Italian restaurants. That coupled with the fact that I have always been a Ray Bourque fan, brought us to Tresca. To start, we were running late, and I called to push our 6:30 reservation to 7:00. We were told that wouldn’t be an issue at all.... More

We were in town for the evening and thanks to threatening weather, we pretty much had all of teh North End to ourselves for dinner. Since we're big hockey fans, it was a no brainer to hit Tresca! It was our first visit and I guarantee you we'll be back - the staff was very attentive and checked on us... More

The service at Tresca was very good. I found my pasta dish a bit bland. Just not some place I would return to.

We had one of the best Italian meals at Tresca and the service was wonderful. Many thanks to the hostess who helped us find a wonderful (and warm) table. The entire staff was professional and welcoming and the food was amazing - perfectly cooked pasta; wonderful pizzas and delicious salads. Highly recommend this restaurant.

As regular visitors to the North End, Tresca is definitely a favorite. Food is so tasty, with great apps to share. The deliish half portions of pasta are perfect as an entree, and left us room for dessert. Love the service, guys are attentive and around, but let you take things at your own pace. Fun night and the valet... More

We ate here 11/23/14 and having been here before was more impressed this time than the last time if that is possible. This time we ate there for brunch. Our group had the ricotta pancakes with cherries and thick sliced bacon so delicious and caprese omlet that came with sourdough bread and a salad so delicious. The service was quick... More

Three weeks ago, my spouse and I found ourselves hungry and in the North End on a warm fall day. We saw Tresca listed on Open Table, so we figured we would give it a try. There weren't too many people there, but we were warmly greeted and sat in the bar, where we could look out the open windows... More
