Good coffee

Stopped here for coffee and tea, service at the outside seating was very slow. Not sure if they actually noticed us and was thinking we should have ordered inside first. However when others arrived it would appear they were just slow of the mark. A very good coffee, and the service was good and... read more

I devoured the gluten-free mushroom pizza, having never tasted anything so wonderful. Better than wheat pizza, even one I had in Rome at Taverna del Corso!! And the Italians agreed . . . simply phenomenal.

I recommend this place for the nice gluten free pizza. It's actually so good that even my friend shared it with me without regretting the normal one.

My wife and I visited Mara Meo restaurant four times during our Lucca holiday. Pizza was great. The big pizza was enough for two people. Wine was pleasant,light and priced reasonably You can sit outside and watch the world go by on the piazza or enjoy the decor and the flames of the pizza wood burner inside. Mara Meo is... More

However when others arrived it would appear they were just slow of the mark. A very good coffee, and the service was good and friendly once it started.

We stopped here for an ice cream on our way back to the station after a very enjoyable wander around Lucca. The pineapple ice cream was delicious and very reasonably priced

Very good restaurant with delicious pastas and cheese with eggplant. I tried tiramisu for the first time and it's much tastier then in a store. Ice cream is very good. And all that for reasonable prices.

Look, this place is not your cutesy trattoria and for that reason it won't suit everyone. It looks like it's probably a chain place (don't know if this is true). But what it does, it does well, and that's why 4 stars. It has a huge range of pizzas, which were some of the best we had while in Italy,... More

We were offered fliers with discounts when we walked by this restaurant, so we gave it a shot. The food is OK, so is the small garden in the back but service was rude and disrespectful (with waitresses constantly going 'scusi' to get customers out of their way). Made me pretty angry. Oh and...the discounts in the fliers they hand... More

s only 11 euros a bottle and the Pizza the best we ate in Italy during our stay. There was a choice of eating in an enclosed courtyard garden at the rear or or the square at the front. The service was efficient and friendly. I would definitely recommend this Pizza restaurant and would visit again if I visit Lucca.
