Intimate authentic Italian – Authentic Italian cooking by people who love what they do!

We didn't have reservations (please call ahead, it can often times get very busy), so we waited at the top of the stairs for seating. While waiting, we leafed through some photo albums that documented the travels of the restaurant owner and head chef. Most of the photos showed them enjoying food, wine and exploring the countryside to find the style of cooking they would like to bring home to Brookline. You could feel the love of their craft.

And it shows in the food.

You simply can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Ask your server for their specials. These tend to be very seasonal.

Order a cocktail as well, their bartender has excellent taste when pairing cocktails to your order, so ask your server for suggestions that can be based on your order.

Awesome Bar for dinner and cocktails – Bernie the friendly Irish bartender started us off with one of the best summer cocktails I have had in a while. It took my love of all things lemon to new heights - it is called a Limone - it's a very chilly lemon martini in sugar rimmed glass - YUM. She then guided into some tapas that you could become addicted to - Fried Rissotto, Meatballs, and fried olives. We then tasted wine to find the perfect glass for our meal as she enlightened on each ones unique qualities. We devoured our wood grilled steak and mushroom lasgna with our glasses of perfectly blended MOMA. Bernie Rocks!

Prime Primi e Secondi – Delicious Italian wine list un poco caro ma bene. Pasta bella. Carne buono. Friendly bar. Second floor less hectic.

Brookline Village restaurant's adventurous northern Italian cuisine makes repeat customers out of suburban couples. – The Scene
Despite its hard-to-reach location along Route 9 East, La Morra serves a steady stream of casually attired locals. Young couples stop by the tiny, bustling bar to enjoy enjoy a pricey glass from its intriguing wine list. Patrons choose between dining on the brighter, more upbeat ground floor, or the more date-friendly upstairs (soft lighting, lower noise levels). Pleasant servers explain the menu's unique offerings while keeping water glasses filled.

The Food
La Morra's epic Northern Italian menu kicks off with a selection of cicchetti--Venetian-style tapas like fried sage leaves with anchovy--before yielding to homemade pasta dishes and wood-grilled meats and fish. Overall, the tone is rustic--delicate tagliatelle is tossed with smoky chicken livers, farro and thyme, while split roasted pork chops are served with caramelized root vegetables and a red wine balsamic and fig reduction. Desserts include a rich flourless chocolate cake, creamy hazlenut semifreddo and fruity homemade sorbets.

inconsistent, good qlty – La morra is northern italian throughout and their quality is high but consistency is lacking. The table butter is a tasty ricotta cheese mixture, but the salad appetizers are a mixed bag. The fixed price menu was decent, but over all un impressive.

what really irked me about this restaurant was the perfectly good waste of veal that was ultimate served to us for our main course. based on my guests past experience we both ordered veal cooked to the suggested medium rare. When our entrees finally came after close to two hours, they were both raw. we asked the waiter to recook them and 5 minutes later they still came out raw. The quality of meat was high, but it is clear that la morra has its days, and mine was not one.

A Great Spot – The food has improved and is now very good. It is an interesting menu - tapas like offerings, which were flavorful- but don't eat too much, leave room for the pastas, which are nice and the robust meat dishes -the hen is my favorite. It also has a good wine list. I would go back despite not being in town. Upstairs is the place to sit, especially by the window. If you have a wait, limited room to do so - especially if the bar is full.

Best Italian in the Boston Area – La Morra is fabulous. The ambience is perfect, it's cute and quaint. The food is authentic and delicious, and the service is tops. It's a perfect place for a date or for a comfortable dinner. The brunch is also excellent. If you want authentic (I am Italian and a food-lover), then go to La Morra.

great place! – Delicious food, great service and fine wine. What else can you ask for? It's conveniently located near Brookline Village and on root 9. Did I mention that food is incredible?

Nice casual establishment with a creative menu – First time at La Morra and I enjoyed the experience. Lots of items on the menu and a very affordable wine list--which is rare these days. Thought the starters were good but small--fried risotto and meatball were tasty. I would recommed the herb crusted veal and the pasta dishes were very good--good size portion. Dessert wasn't bad, not great and I thought the waiter guessed when we asked him for a wine recommendation. Overall, very comfortbale and relaxed atmosphere. $8 for valet compared to $14 in the city.
