Success! Thanks for posting your review of Tresca. You’ve done the world some good today.

Request to be seated at Phil Hunter's table!

Tresca is must when dining in the North End! The last time I was there we truly had the best and most knowledgeable Server named Phil Hunter (he is there Friday nights!) Phil knows everything without hesitation we left it up to him as to what we would be eating that night. He picked our courses and introduced us to some fantastic wines (which I have since found and purchased), each a wonderful surprise! ... view more

most romantic table

The balcony table for 2 is the most romantic table in the North End. I love eating al fresco and people watching is like no other. The service was so professional from the initial greeting from the lovely hostess, the server and the busser. We did the Tresca Tasting. 4 amazing courses from different regions in Italy. All where explained as they were brought to the table. We were at the hands of the Chef. Fun and exci... view more

Great date spot, but don't forget the bar menu!

One of the three best restaurants on Hanover Street! Most restaurants on Hanover Street either offer you heaping helpings of mediocre red sauce or overpriced and over thought ""modernized"" Italian. Tresca manages to give you a delicious, modern Italian meal that would satisfy the most die-hard of foodies, but would not upset your nonni either. The pork chop is one of the best items on the menu, hands down. Its size ... view more

North End resto def worth checking out

I work in the area and have been to alot of North End restaurants for dinner or just a few after work drinks. Tresca is definitely my favorite because it's a great place to do either. The food is among the best in the neighborhood, the atmosphere is relaxed yet classy, and the staff is young and fun. If you are thinking about heading to the North End for dinner or a drink or both, check out Tresca, you'll be back.

Great Italian food!

This place is awesome! I went with my girl the other night. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent. Pasta was great and the veal was fantastic! Great atmosphere also. I highly recommend Tresca!

Usually I'm not the biggest fan of Restaraunt Week, but Tresca was easily the best spot I've gone to in years of trying new places during RW. Typically the options aren't that good at most places, but not only did Tresca feature the best options (the 5oz. bone-in-filet was outstanding), but the 3rd serving was a meal in and of itself. I would highly recommend this for any meal as I look forward to going back. \r \r T... view more

Fabulous food; great service and atmosphere

Best meal we've had in Boston! Tasting menu was particularly excellent - great food, perfect service, and terrific atmosphere. We will definitely go back to this restaurant!

Never Disappoints

People in Rhode Island don't like to travel more than 15 mins. especially for Italian food. So for this person to travel to Boston's North End there must be something special. Tresca is special. It reminds me of Tuscany. Massimo, the gen. mgr. and wine sommelier makes you feel like you are somebody. He has a fabulous understanding of wine and knows how to please. Monday night I was there and the place was jammed. Can... view more

Just ok and overpriced

I had dinner at Tresca on a Saturday night with my wife and 3 kids. Not really a place for kids, but I knew that going in, so that is no issue. The kids mostly enjoyed the food and the wait staff was accomodating.\r We were never told about the specials so I did not know there was a ribeye, which I would have ordered.\r I ordered the Osso Bucco, which was plentiful but rather tough...which is strange for this dish.

Great food and service

A Tresca regular, I can't say enough about the food and the service. On my last visit I tried the chef tasting. The server asked us if we had any allergies and/or dislikes and then the chef went ahead and designed a three course meal that catered to our preferences. It was fantastic and really gave us a chance to try some true italian flavors that we may not have otherwise chosen. I highly recommend it. After dinner,... view more
