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 warm up satisfactorily and promptly.)

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...

There is very little parking available as there are just a few spaces on the street. The other alternative is a lot with an attendant and a charge to park. The ambience of the restaurant is very nice. There were four guests in my party - two had the Bolognese, one had the pasta with lobster and turnips, and I... More

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
