All around excellent

After driving past La Morra for years, we finally had a chance to stop in for dinner on a Friday night. While it's much larger than it looks from the outside, it's still quite warm and cozy within yet still suitable for our group of six - we didn't worry about being a little loud as everyone else... read more

On our last week in Newton we decided to go out for dinner here, not knowing our journey also started here 6 months ago. It was sheer coincidence we picked the same place. But what was truly amazing was that it needed the hostess to point that out to us! She recognised us, and welcomed us. That made our day!... More

We have eaten at La Morra a few times and never really been impressed, in spite of the good reviews it receives. Friends suggested it. We had not been there in a while and agreed to give it another try. We were not disappointed. The menu has changed much from our earlier visits. They have introduced cicchetti. Cicchetti are Venitian... More

I have been to La Morra many times, as my friend lives around the corner. Last time I had fish, which was excellent. My wife had a half portion of pasta bolognese, which was ample. My martini was cold and well made. The wine selection is outstanding. The servers are on top of everything. The prices are reasoanable.

I admit this was a risk after our much disappointed dining at the Heritage in Sherborn - the other restaurant owned by the same folks - but we thought that we should try anyway. Glad we did. No regrets. Very good food. Diverse menus - fabulous salads and entrees. Worth the effort and we will return.

Excellent food. Great atmosphere. A real treat for a night out. The food choices are always interesting and thoughtfully presented, the service very attentive and setting conducive to both tête à tête dining as well as groups. The bar is always a great choice as well.

After hearing much about La Morra, we finally tried it. Though on time, the staff had some trouble getting us a table. The only drawback -- I will say upfront -- is the crowded nature of the tables, and limited space, one of those situations where you find yourself walking sideways a lot and asking your partner to repeat what...

My daughter discovered La Morra ~ 3 years ago and we have dined there every 2-3 months since. Last night we celebrated her graduation from Northeastern University, and sadly we won't be here as often. :( This time we were joined by my wife and older daughter and La Morra did not disappoint. The Tagliatelle with Bolonese sauce is to... More

I had dinner here with a colleague on a Wednesday night. We were looking for Italian near the Longwood area. This place was easy to find and although it appeared to be a very busy night, there was not a long wait for a table. There were a few different menus and I lvoed that you could mix and match...

Food is excellent, service unhurried yet attentive, extensive wine selection. We dined form their winter menu; would love to experience the other seasons as well. They also were accommodating and shared their recipe for Ribollita. BTW, don't sweat the parking: yes it's mostly "on street" and yes it's Rt. 9 but there were plenty of spaces. I understand they also... More
