We went for lunch on the patio they made out of the brick area across the tiny ally that I think is part of the church. Cristiano was our server. He was great. He was so friendly and respectful. Our food was 100/100. So good. The sauce with the calamari might just be the best marinara I’ve ever had. It was robust with flavor, excellent texture, and just enough heat to warm up my palate. We will definitely be going back for dinner. Great time! Well done on all accounts!

Simply my favorite North End restaurant. Stuffed veal chop. Need I say more. The gnocchi is superb. Never a bad meal here.

We had a reservation for 2 at 8 pm, but when we got there at 8 we had to wait 50 more minutes to be sat, and by then the ambiance had changed, unfortunately.

We had a great dinner. I think we got the best distanced table on the patio. I appreciated that we were not sitting on the street. The food was great, we were seated immediately, service was excellent.

We had reservations and still had to wait over 35 min because they were taking walk-in’s. They took forever to come out with the food and once the food came out it was cold. We kindly ask for it to be reheated and they just threw more sauce on it. Awful service and mediocre food

Wonderful first restaurant experience since the COVID shutdown. Outdoor tables were spaced 6’ apart, waitstaff wore masks (although our server didn’t have mask on over nose). Food and wine were delicious.

We took some people from out of town here for dinner, as we wanted to give them a true North End dining experience. Lucia's was perfect. The atmosphere was great, the menu was large and filled with interesting dishes. Everything was delicious, including the antipasto. Our waiter, Cristiano, was a lot of fun and really made the whole experience fantastic. Our guests had a wonderful time, and I think Lucia's is now our favorite North End restaurant.

Fabulous place to dine for the Bruins game. Staff was very attentive to the fact that we were in time crunch. Our meals were delicious. The bruscietta did not go over well, however. The ingredients were piled on top of a piece of bread and fell off as soon as we picked it up to take a bite. That was our only complaint. Overall, we can't wait to go back!

Went on a Sunday night and it was the perfect time to go. Our server was very nice and helped us choose some really good food. The food is incredible. I had the chicken parmesan and it was perfectly cooked, the marinara sauce was sweet and smooth. The food is a bit expensive but it was definitely worth the experience.
