A delightful meal in the Tuscan countryside.

This Michelin starred restaurant is located in the garden on the road north of Lucca. I took a tasting menu for €100 with wine. Every course was superb. Service was very solicitous. It was a most enjoyable evening and great value for the money.

I had made a mental note if this restaurant after reading about it in our Michelin guide. After doing some sightseeing and heading back to Lucca on the highway my husband saw the sign. I told him to turn around figuring we would make a reservation for dinner we were pleased to find that they were serving lunch. This was... More

We visited on a sunny Sunday afternoon for lunch. We were seated in the outdoor pavilion and served a delightfully crisp and cold champagne to get things started. My dining companions chose either the meat or seafood degustation while I asked if it would be possible to prepare a vegetarian degustation for me. I frequently find myself being treated as... More

The restaurant is unpretentious but the food is out of this world. Good value for money compared the similar restaurants elsewhere. We ate a la carte and almost all dishes were sublime. This is a quality experience, not inexpensive but you will be happy

A perfect day and we were seated in a pavillion in the lovely gardens. Most of us opted for a seafood tasting menu with paired wines. A glass of exquisite champagne started things off nicely and the first dish was Red Snapper with crispy skin and young spinach. This was followed by steamed lobster, confit tomato,basil, burrata cheese and crispy... More

We booked Butterfly online from the UK weeks ago after reading about it,and we have been anticipating a memorable Michelin starred experience since then and we were not disappointed. We arrived a little early,and service was yet to begin,however the team were able to swing into action and we were very professionally accommodated. We were seated in their beautifully manicured...

We visited this restaurant in early July 2014 with two other couples. Since the weather was nice, we opted to sit outside in the lovely garden. We each had the tasting menu, some had fish and some had meat. I am glad I chose the fish menu because the portions were quite large for a tasting menu. The dishes were... More

We visited Butterfly in early June as a surprise gift for my partner's parents who has taken us on holiday. We were not disappointed! From the outset the staff were very friendly and accommodating of our requests despite my lacklustre Italian. We opted for the Chef's Surprise Menu and a selection of house wine, both of which were lovely. The... More

Located 10 km outside Lucca, the restaurant has one Michelin star, which it fully deserves. Price of the two fixed menus (fish or meat) each six courses plus a few extras, is €65, and the accompanying wine menu is €25). I had the meat menu, and everything was excellent. Only minus was a very long 45 minute wait outside on... More

We had dinner at Ristorante Butterfly. As to be expected from a Michelin starred restaurant, dishes were very well executed, staf is professional, the setting is very pleasant. Would recommend the tasting menu, fish or meat, as it gives a good representation and good value. For people driving to Ristorante Buttefly, coming from Lucca on the via del Brennero (S.S.... More
