We had a great dinner and experience here. Alessandro and his staff were extremely friendly and generous, greeting us with complimentary proseco and bread. Then on to a marvelous 3 course dinner that was outstanding. Attention to detail was present throughout the meal. High praise!

My wife and I ate here twice during our Sept. 25-28 stay in Lucca and all four meals were great. The tagliatelle with ragu of wild boar was especially good and they had a good selection of gluten free pastas. The patio doesn't look like much being stuck on the non-descript piazza del Suffragio but the dining rooms are wonderful... More

We've found this restaurant by chance after spending some hours walking around beautiful Lucca. I had the rabit ragu spaghetti and my husband had the mushroom risotto and they both tasted fantastic. The ragu was very well seasoned, the meet was melting-in-your-mouth good. Risotto was divine. The staff and manager on duty were great, and delivered excellent service and even... More

We ate here four times during our two week stay in Lucca and each time we had a very high quality meal. The owner is kind and thoughtful, even putting tartan wool rugs on the back of each chair in the outside eating area to use if it became chilly. The restaurant inside is below ground level but has a... More
