Interesting menu items but order what you're familiar with.

We tried this restaurant after coming back from Florence. We were the last table to come in that evening. The servers were very good. They had some interesting dishes on the menu, including a fish carpaccio with fruit. I would skip it as interesting as it sounded, it was almost tasteless. The kids... read more

Was recommended by our B&B stay. I looked up and thought we'd give it ago as gamble. Glad we went as friendly service and unique menu choice. Amazing starters. Would go back if I'm in Lucca again in future. My teen son loves it too even there was no Pizza.

We discovered this Osteria a little late in our two month stay in Lucca. But, once we did we went back repeatedly and took visiting friends. Loved the outside dining. Food was very good and service was very friendly.

This restaurant was recommended by local friends. It is located just off the main pedestrian street in Lucca, the via Fillungo. We booked in advance, which allowed us to sit outside in their spacious terrace. We found the staff helpful and the place was full in mid August. Many of the dishes were exotic or unusual. Starters such as squid... More

Been there on a family visit of the fantasti town of Lucca. The place looks nice, but our risotto with rucola, nuts and honey tasted as it was pre-cooked and had too much onion. We also tried the zuppa di farro, which appeared overcooked as well. The place is for some salami cheese and ham dishes, probably.

A friend told us to dine here and so glad we did! Service was great and food was delicious. We had some local wine and it was really good. A guest even played a couple of songs on the piano they had at the front! Highly recommended!!

What a fantastic meal in this hidden gem. The service was good and we had an excellent bottle of red for 25 euros. The meatballs were very good as was the ravioli. Desserts really good.

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.
