Excellent pizza, inexpensive, a bit frantic

Popular and it's easy to see why: the pizza is terrific and the prices are unusually low. The only problem is the young and friendly wait staff are frantically running around, so it seems a bit more stressful than it should. Perhaps they need to hire more wait staff and raises the prices a bit... read more

Fantastic pizzas and desserts, with a great ambience. The staff were really efficient and the prices so reasonable, we went back twice during our three day stay in Lucca. Highly recommend.

Wondering around north East Lucca looking for lunch, we stumbled upon this gem. The atmosphere is fun and local while it is full of Lucchese on their lunch breaks. The food is generous to say the least, and very tasty. Recommend the foccaccia!

Cosy, pizzeria with tables and booths, in large open square, not on the tourist track. Service was efficient and helpful. Wide range of red and white pizzas, artisan bottled beer. Pizza good quality and good value. While the restaurant is clean and fresh the toilets leave a lot to be desired. A good experience but not somewhere I would rush... More

time flew by as we ambled through the Porta Elise market this morning and we suddenly realized it was after 1330 and we were hungry. So riding our bikes through the alleyways we stumbled across Mara Meo...the outside menu looked interesting so we said "why not " try something new. Hubbie had a piccolo pizza he said was delicious and... More

you can have a decent cheap lunch here, 7 euro for a large salad and grilled chop, or the la oro specials, a primi, Secondi, focaccia, dolce, vino, aqua, and caffe for 10 euro! Service was pleasant and efficient and it was a pleasant spot for a meal rather than a dining experience. It is near the guigini museum and... More

Here we are again in Lucca (our fourth time) and Mara Meo is a must. Great pizza from a forno oven. Simple but very good. There may be better pizzerias in Lucca but we can always count on Mara Meo for a delicious pizza.
