LaMorra is our go-to special occasion (or any occasion!) restaurant. The food is inspired by Josh and Jen's trips to Italy. When I saw "celery salad" on the menu I simultaneously thought "really? CELERY SALAD?" and "I have to try that". I expected it to be interesting and a bit tiresome after a few bites. Instead I gobbled it up... More

We used Tripadvisor to find a good place to eat dinner in walking distance from EnVision Hotel... Only a ten minute walk away, we were not disappointed. Firm, fresh flavorful pasta, pesto laden bluefish, and many choices for small plates. Would be a great place to share food and wine with friends.

Friends recommended La Morra to my boyfriend and me, and they were right. The atmosphere is charming, the food is exquisite, and the service is great. With a place this good, you expect a wait at peak times - as long as you factor that in to your plans, it's well worth it. Two thumbs up on this place. It's... More

We went to La Morra for restaurant week and couldn't have been more pleased. We were greeted as if we were regulars. We sat at the bar and had lots of help ordering items for the four! courses. All were wonderful, especially my Cornish hen and the tomato bread pudding. Servings were ample. We took half of ours home. Will... More

I have driven past this restaurant for years, but it wasn't till making reservations last minute for my boss was when I found out how wonderful it is. He has done nothing but rave about it since that night, so my husband checked it out on our anniversary. The reals were fantastic and truly unique. Who would have thought to... More

Taken by friends for a "casual" Italian dinner. Tucked away near Brookline in Boston, this traditional family run restaurant was a treat. Full to capacity - you have to book a table even on a weekday - the informal ambience sets it off. The menu was extensive, inviting, and the selection we had was delicious: Hanger steak, Chicken and Crusted... More

My wife and I were in Brookline yesterday and she wanted Italian. I queried SIRI on my iPhone and La Morra was one of 15 italian restaurants. I called and they were able to seat us. What a welcome surprise we had on this our first visit. The staff was exceedingly friendly and attentive. We both ordered arugula salads and... More

A good friend lives in Brookline Village, several blocks from La Morra Restaurant. I have been there many times and have always had an excellent meal. The eatery is small with precise service and interesting dishes. There are half portions, which we like. The martinis are very good. The wine menu is extensive.
