Slightly off the beaten track but worth looking for. Lovely outdoor seating area, convivial surroundings and attentive service. Nice, local fair. The mixed starter was certainly enough for 4 people and the main dishes were all well cooked and tasty. Lovely local wines.

This little Gem was a fantastic recommendation from our B&B host. It was hard to find which was a plus and just gorgeous. we sat outside in the courtyard. Everyone eating there was foreign speaking English to one another, but a lot of them also spoke Italian. Confused?! But when the food was SUPERB nothing else mattered. It was clean... More

Visited with our teenagers and 9 year old. Excellent service and it suited all the family. Choice available to eat was excellent and was it was great not to be treated like tourists. The quality of the food was very good and very reasonably priced. We would definitely ear here again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our supper at Osteria San Giorgio. Started with a salad which was nice & crisp. Also tried the bread lasagna (very rich) and tordelli (local specialty that was great). For dessert had the raspberry tart followed by a lemoncello which ended the evening off perfectly.

You should try the spaghetti with clams! Apart from enjoying spaghetti, we liked the atmosphere in the restaurant (friendly staff & we could communicate very well in English although it was not touristic). Prices have been adequate.

We ate here once during our stay in Lucca on the midlle of JUNE 2015. We set in a very nice courtyard,more Italians than tourists,thankfully.The service was good,not pushy. We ate seafood which was excellent,light and tastey. Not expensive at all. Nice friendly restaurant, very good location.

We went for lunch based on Rick Steves good (2015) review. Total disappointment. After we were finally given menus, server took ages to take our order age then food took very long to arrive. It wasn't even a busy time. We ordered the grilled sea bass which was so charred and was served with only a few charred pieces of... More
