In England, gluten-free pizzas are few and far between. But this had a great selection which went down particularly well with one of our party. A first class range of g-f desserts capped a great evening for us. The staff were so friendly and welcoming with excellent English. Thanks for a great evening.

Pizzeria Mara Meo is located within the Lucca walls. Went there for lunch after browsing around the shops all morning. From the storefront, it doesn't look like much...a few tables out front and a small room with a bar and some indoor seating. Out back, however, surrounded by flower gardens is a good-sized patio with several tables that await the... More

Mara Meo has seven sites in the Lucca area and just across the Piazza San Francesco from the Pizza restaurant mainly reviewed here is another Mara Meo Bar & Restaurant which is also very good. The Piazza is away from the main tourist axis and so prices are modest. This site has screened pavement seating with a great view of... More

We were looking for a quick bite after the Pucinni concert and this fit the bill. It's also nice that Piazza San Franceso is not a real touristy area so you get to see another part of Lucca.

We found this on our first trip into Lucca as great little car park next to it. On Via Vittore.Emanuele and just a few minutes walk to main Piazza Michele. Very good value pizza slices (€1.50) and really tasty pizza sandwich ( never did find out what they are called in Italian!) at €2.50. Drinks very reasonable and their Gelateria... More

Just nice for a quiet pizza. Popular with locals. Inexpensive and cheerful. Has a nice cafe on the other side of the square.

The one in San Francisco square has a garden out the back, and an pizza oven in the shop. We went for their excellent salad, as well as the pizzas.

although cheap, this is the place to find best pizza in town. and, of corse, best icecream. i guess their advantage is that they are not close to amphitheater area, so that they can have very decent prices and top quality. we've spent an week in lucca and, although we stayed quite opposite to this place, we walked to it...
