Very friendly family atmosphere, clean, good service and the food (although limited choices) was very nice. 2 main meals and a bottle of red wine was only 20 Euros. Within easy walking distance of casa verde. Dan & Joan Lehain

I went to Bistrot with my family who were on holiday with me and found they staff friendly and helpful with the menu. The pizzas are delicious with those traditional Italain thin bases. I would recommend this restautrant to anyone visiting Vellano near Lucca.
