We took the opportunity of restaurant week to try erbaluce, and were most disappointed. The food was good, but the service was awful! We were asked more than once if we had theater tickets or a time to be somewhere. We truthfully replied that we did not. Little did we know that this apparently put us on the reduced priority list. Our service thereafter was noticeably slower than that of the surrounding tables. (Speaking of tables, ours was quite unsteady, for which they could do nothing once we were settled.) The other half of our party of four who arrived later than us, were seated in the other room, despite arriving for a reservation under one name. From there, the service was slow at every turn, even for me - someone who prefers a leisurely dining experience. Wine was ordered well before the entree, which appeared with empty wine glasses and no sign of our server. We had to call him to get the wine, and it arrived with the excuse that someone had brought up the wrong bottle. There were many such excuses. Once our entrees we done, we had had enough and asked for the check before dessert was served, which arrived just in time to keep us from walking out without it (worst bread pudding that I ever had - packaged croutons on top, or something). We observed the part-owner noticing something had been miscommunicated about our desserts, and it was apparent to us that the problems with service began at the top.

Having Italian blood in my veins and growing up with pasta "fatto in casa" I expected to find a good quality Italian meal. My friend Allen ordered the pork, he told me it was tasteless, our firend Denise ordered the rabbit and it was so bad she did not finish it, I had the sardines for apetized they were tasteless, to say the least; for main course I ordered the tagliatelli - there was no difference between these and what you could buy at a chain Italian restaurant, also tasteless, we asked for salt and it was brought it to us in a plate with a spoon. Food was bland with no taste whatsoever, for the prices they charge we were expecting an unforgetable culinary experience, we were flat wrong, unfortunately. The waiter was a bit presumptuous which one of my guestes noted as well. In conclussion, don't waste your money, it is highly overrated, highly priced for the quality of the food they serve and you will be surely dissapointed.

I came here before a show and was pleasantly surprised. Good service. Good atmosphere. Great food. The pasta is homemade and the brussel sprouts were amazing. Would definitely come back.

A friend and I visited Erbaluce last night and it was a stunning time. We sat at the bar for a more engaging time and asked the hostess for recommendations on food and beverage. The recommendations were good - thoughtful to our palette and paired well - and Byron behind the bar mixed cocktails that balanced our mood, and provided a half bottle of wine that was phenomenal! Their menu changes often so I cannot promise these are all on the menu, but if they are I recommend you get: saffron shrimp appetizer. Pair it with their Prosecco A drink with any of their house infused liquors. I favor the basil infusion and the Meyer lemon and lavender infusion. The carbonara paired with the Marina Cvetic Montepulciano 2008 The green walnut infused grappa to finish I now have three Italian places in town I like: Erbaluce, Giulia, and Massimino's Cucina Italiana.

The food and services was not worth the high prices No menu or prices listed online is never a good thing Food was cold, lacked flavor and portions were small. Service was pretentious, especially Joan who I caught rolling her eyes when individuals requested her.

Delicious and inventive Italian menu, with a theme of herbs throughout. The sunflower buds were new to me and tasted amazing. The risotto was beautifully cooked and just what I needed on the cold night. Very friendly and helpful staff - great option for dinner in Boston, especially if you're veggie (but lots of non-veggie options too)
