Sophisticated Italian. Very good service for the meal. Great wine selection. Asparagus soup was tasty but a bit salty. Main courses were all enjoyable and generous is size.

Pro: This is a white tablecloth place. Delicious Italian, nicely plated, professionally served. Nice wine list. Three of us had pasta dishes and two of us had seafood dishes -- and at the end of the meal, we could have all joined the 'clean plate'...More

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.
