Lucia Ristorante Celebrates 35 Years on Hanover Street
Enjoy “A Taste of The Times” four-course tasting menu from 1977 throughout October

WHAT:                 Lucia Ristorante on Hanover Street is celebrating its 35th anniversary this October by offering “A Taste of the Times” – a four course, prix fixe dinner menu featuring a classic spread from their 1977 opening menu. A percentage of the proceeds will go to the Massachusetts Restaurant Association’s Educational Foundation, which is focused on developing current and upcoming food and beverage professionals in Mass., making a serious impact on the future of the Boston hospitality scene. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will also go to the Boston Bruins Foundation.

Lucia has been owned by the Frattaroli family since its opening in the heart of the North End in 1977, when they became one of the first restaurants to bring true Italian cooking to the neighborhood. They have continuously combined traditional Italian-American favorites with daring innovations from Abruzzo, Italy (the Frattaroli’s home), many times long before they became culturally acceptable in America. They have always been known to provide an intimate atmosphere for families and friends, which keep not just tourists, but many locals, returning year after year, decade after decade.

Now, the Frattaroli family is welcoming all their customers – families and friends from near and far – back to the restaurant for a month long celebration, giving them another chance to experience the dishes that began their legacy, and offering the one time chance to guests who never had the opportunity to do so for the first time.
