Annnnd I’m back in Boston!

Winter break was definitely one to rProcessed with VSCO with c1 presetemember-our cruise to the Southern Caribbean was nothing shy of spectacular! With that being said, I am looking forward to the spring semester of my junior year and tackling more North End restaurants!

So today we went to Ristorante Lucia. I loved the inside; all the walls were brick and we sat in a booth with a window over looking the Church right next door. I can imagine that during the summer, with the windows open, it would be beautiful to enjoy a great meal there.

My parents loved the bread, and also ordered bruschetta as an appetizer. The mozzarella and tomatoes doused in olive oil was fantastic. My dad said that this bruschetta was his favorite in the North End. I’d highly suggest ordering it! ´

I got a special of the day: scallops and shrimp in a puttanesca sauce over homemade fusilli. Being gluten free, I opted for the gluten free pasta which they happily made. I really enjoyed my meal. The puttanesca sauce was not super spicy, but just enough, and with some olives, capers and tomato, it turned out very well. (pictured far right)

Processed with VSCO with c4 presetMy mom ordered the Pollo Lucia, which was boneless chicken breast sautéed with artichoke hearts & mushrooms in a light lemon sauce. She did not get it with artichoke hearts as she doesn’t care for the saltiness of them, and with that change was very satisfied and happy with her meal. (pictured above, far left)

My dad ordered the Ammazzafame, which they say is a specialty of the house. It is a dish with Penne rigate, Porcini mushrooms, sausage, broccoli, sun-dried tomato & capers. My dad was also very pleased with his main meal.

The service was top notch-our waiter had a fab Italian accent and was easy on the eyes 😉

I would say this is a more expensive restaurant as most of the dishes are around $20-30, but that is also quite normal for the North End.
