I was pleasantly surprised when they could accommodate a party of 8 on a Saturday night. And, even more surprised when I called back to ask to add a 9th. . . . .and they were very pleasant and said yes. Then the real surprise happened. Tresca was recommended by a friend, so it had to be good. But when all the dishes arrived, and the group almost stopped talking to each other and just maid pleasant sounds and had big smiles, that said it all. The food really was fantastic. And while the wine list is a bit thinner than I normally like, I found several great bottles at really excellent prices. The night was topped off when the chef came out and personally talked with us, which was perfect because we all wanted to thank him for dishes that went way beyond our expectations.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends/business associates. I ordered the Maple Pumpkin Risotto, which was a fall special. It was so delicious, and as a GF (required) diet, I was so thankful they could accommodate me. The presentation alone made it worth it, but it also made for delicious leftovers the next day.

The food was delicious and our server (Steve) was attentive and not overbearing. And he was very friendly. The thing I found the most interesting was we were in an Italian restaurant in the north end of Boston and the music was .....Marvin Gaye. Now I love Marvin Gaye, but thought it was an odd choice for that place.

Fabulous night out at Tresca! It was a cold night in Boston and walking into the warmth and delicious aromas was so welcoming! We had a 7:30 reservation, arrived early and had time for a wonderful glass of wine at the bar before being seated. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive and the food & drinks were delicious! We shared the Arincini and the Roasted Brussels Sprouts to start. Both were wonderful!! My husband had the chicken parm which was not only delicious but plentiful with enough to bring home for dinner the next night. I ordered the chef’s special Pumpkin Chicken Risotto which was cooked with spinach and so much yummy, cheesy goodness I couldn’t stop talking about it. It was also served inside a small sugar pumpkin which just put the whole dish and presentation over the top! So glad I didn’t miss out on this one! For dessert we shared the special of the night, Caramel Apple bread pudding with vanilla bean gelato with a hot cup of cappuccino. Needless to say we left feeling so happy & satisfied. We plan to return when we are in Boston again and for our anniversary in June, at which time we hope to reserve private table 77 outside on the balcony!!

We arrived earlier than we had planned to. However the hostess was very accommodating. We sat at the bar for about 15 minutes and she was able to seat us earlier than our reservation. The food was delicious the bottles of wine went down smoothly and the wait staff was impeccable. We will definitely be there again thank you

Food was slightly above average. Wine list was very good. Service was outstanding. Salad was overdressed, carpaccio was very good but the presentation made it hard to share. Bolognese, carbonara and rigatoni were good, not great. I was expecting more.

My wife and I went here for the first time this past Saturday evening to celebrate our 28th Anniversary and boy they did not disappoint. We requested a table by the window and voila it was waiting for us. We started with martinis and some appetizers. The lobster stuffed mushrooms and beef carpaccio were absolutely delicious. For mains, my wife had the Seafood fra diavolo and I had the grilled veal chop.
Everything was cooked to perfection. Combined it with a great bottle of Montepulciano D’Abruzzo and savored what was a great great meal. Finished the night off with some tiramisu, compliments of Tresca.
Great service, great food, great dining room....thanks Tresca for a memorable dinner....we will be back ( and often). Grazie !!!!!!!
