Birthday dinner last evening

Four of us had dinner last evening for my birthday. When we arrived our reservation was acknowledged and we were seated upstairs quickly. Once there we realized that not only was it drafty, it was COLD! The waitress agreed and said the manager had just decided to turn up the heat. (And it did... read more

The food at La Morra is consistently excellent. The menu varies with season and the chef usually has a few specials on the menu. I particularly enjoy the arancini appetizer and the pasta Bolognese. My favorite spot is at the bar with Bernie, a superb and personable bartender. Bernie really knows how to provide service and it is clear that... More

A friend and I went during restaurant week for a delightful 4 course meal. It was superb...every course distinctly different than the one before. Can't wait to go back again!

Dinner reservations on another snowy night in Boston. So glad we made it. Although I understand there was an article written (Admittedly, I didn't see it) quoting Tom Brady of the Patriots saying that the bolognese was his favorite, I'm afraid he got it wrong. Sorry Tom. Yes, the bolognese was good, but the Gnocci was so much better. In... More

My honey made reservations for Valentines Day taking advantage of their special menu.We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation. The hostess let us know our table would be ready in 15 minutes, handed us a wine list and cocktail menu, and showed us upstairs to a comfortable waiting area. I don't know why she gave us the drnk menus... More

We love the fixed price full dinners. My spouse and I like to share, so we usually each order different things and then trade plates. Lots of great food at reasonable price.

We had a team meal here and everything was perfect! Food and service were amazing, but parking is challenging (as is parking ANYWHERE in Boston suburbs)!

Went there for dinner the day after Thanksgiving without a reservation. Bad move, as I guess everyone else was tired of cooking. Got to sit at the bar though, which was more than fine. We all had half dishes. I tried the Bolognese as I had heard it had been highly acclaimed in a review. Also my wife makes a... More

The service and food were impeccable and would love to return time and time again! Agreed parking can be a challenge, but we lucked out. We were greeted warmly and were served amazing cocktails as we were waiting for our table. We started with fried sage leave with anchovy and it was a perfect balance of flavors, very unique. Then...
