We ate here on a Tuesday night so the restaurant was not jammed. The atmosphere is very nice, more on the quiet side. I had the chicken dinner and my wife had lobster/shrimp pasta. Both were excellent. I had a Caesar's Salad and my wife had a beet and grapefruit salad. Both were very good. Dessert was a chocolate torte... More

Ray Bourque's restaurant serves the best Italian food in all of Boston. I had the privilege of eating there on a Saturday night, and got in only because of a connection. We arrived late for our 8 o'clock appointment because of a parade in the area. "No problem." said the attendant as she cheerfully took us to our table. The... More

The food was mediocre and the service the same. None of the food was interesting, and mostly lacking in just basic flavor. The service was very inattentive. Noone bothered to ask why food was left on the plate. Would not go back.

The service in Tresca is great - waiters are knowledgeable about the menu and are easy to have a conversation with. The atmosphere is great with a wide variety of people dining there. The food is tasty and very well priced for the area. My only criticism is that the restaurant was a little darker than I would have liked... More

Let me start by saying the food was not bad, just not great and at the end made me wish we had chosen another restaurant. The service was great, we were greeted with a smile and everyone who attended to us was friendly. I came with my wife, she ordered the pomodoro pasta and I ordered the margarita pizza. On... More

Wonderful food selection and ambience. Open windows onto Hanover street on a warm summer evening. Great antipasto plate, tasty salads and Italian pastas. Half plates are good for those with a lighter appetite, yet still plenty of food to satisfy!

I love this restaurant! The atmosphere is very pleasing and the service is impeccable. Then came the food . . . house-made pasta. The flavors were amazing! I really can't imagine it could have been better. I actually went back for a second time while in Boston only for the weekend. Totally spot-on! A+ in my book!

While the atmosphere was very pleasant, the food was just average. Several people at the table were not loving their meal. Mine was ok but not fantastic. Staff not certain about dessert items; didn't seem to know the menu. Fun evening anyway.
