lovely Italian food. Helpful waiters and pleasant surroundings. It was a little noisy but the tables are not too close together so you can hear what your companion says.

We came here after a long day at the nearby Hynes convention center. Very convenient to the Sheraton, Marriott, and Hilton. Wish we could have had a round table for easier conversation, but the food made up for it. Good wine list, good food selection,...More

This restaurant serves excellent upscale Italian food with touches of creativity. It is pricey, but the quality is commensurate. The cavatelli with spiced pork took the prize as the best dish, but everything received rave reviews. Service was the perfect combination of friendly, unstuffy, professional,...More

Food was good but not good enough to justify the prices. Nice atmosphere and friendly waitstaff. We ordered 3 dishes and apps. The best was the cavatelli.

Food is absolutely delicious. Service was excellent as well. Atmosphere – classy but a little old. Be prepared for high prices for what you get but if you were looking for smallish portions but delicious food, try it.

Lucca Back Bay is the sister restaurant of Lucca in the North End. The Kitchen, headed by Andres Cruz, embraces classic Italian cuisine with a contemporary approach. Andres works closely with the finest purveyors and local farmers to ensure that nothing but quality produce enters his kitchen. From house-made pasta and breads, to handcrafted desserts, the cuisine is a thoughtful, well executed, process. Lucca Back Bay offers two dining styles. The elegant main dining room at Lucca Back Bay is the perfect place to relax and enjoy world-class cuisine and exceptional service in a fine dining atmosphere. The cozy and intimate lounge at Lucca Back Bay is a great place to hang out after work, whether that's at 5pm or 1am. We have been told that we have the best burger in town, a staple on our bar menu which is served nightly until 1am. We stay open until 2am every night, with a large industry following, and feature a large collection of house-infused spirits.
