My wife and I had intended to eat at this Cantine every evening throughout our four night stay in Lucca. However, as luck would have it, they were having a refit and they only opened for business on our last evening. It was definitely worth the wait. Because of the time of year the outside seating was not available, so... More

On the last night of our two week stay in Lucca, my wife and I found this fabulous, slightly hidden restaurant. Located on Via del Suffragio, 7, Cantine Bernardini served us the absolutely best food of our vacation. We were especially impressed with their beef, which could be cut with a fork, The prices were relatively low compared to others... More

Having read the reviews online I booked this place ahead as a treat for my girlfriends birthday while we were in Lucca. The owner Alessandro was really helpful and friendly. I'm really pleased i did book it as we wouldnt have found it otherwise as it's tucked down a back street, and would hate to have missed out on this... More

Located on a bit of a back street this is not the easiest place to find. But well worth it. We had lunch there one day and evening meals twice after that during our 5 day stay in Lucca. The food is excellent, the service outstanding and the price very reasonable. I had an excellent fresh salad, beautiful fesh pasta... More

Lucca is probably my favorite city in Italy. It's small, friendly & has lots of great restaurants. Last night my clients wanted to eat in Lucca and were hoping to go to Buralli(maybe today for lunch) but they were closed. So we took a chance and walked into the city on the Via Elisa. I remembered that Daniela from the... More

My husband and I stopped in Lucca on our way from Florence to Tuscany. We had lunch here and then rented bikes to ride around the wall, and just these two experiences made it one of our favorite days of our 2 week trip. I had read some good trip advisor reviews for Cantine Bernadini, so we sought it out... More

We went here a few days ago. Saw comments in tripadvisor, but food was really not ok. We had mussels as starter, which were ok. But my main course which was seafood pasta was really not nice. I even thought some gamba's where not good as I didn't eat them. The salmon of mine boyfriend smelled too much and also... More

A family group of 7, we stopped in at Bernardini for an evening meal. Seated outside, there were a number of empty tables but they soon filled up. Maybe by reputation or just the pleasant setting & atmosphere. The menu offered enticing choices (english translations) & they had a very good wine list. My frustrations started when they were only... More

We found an old review for this restaurant, dating back a few years when it was ranked even higher on TripAdvisor. The restaurant is off one of the main streets in a quiet setting. The menu did not disappoint. For starters, my husband had mussels with pepper, which were large and very tasty. Our friends each ordered the wonderful buffalo... More
