Great spot for wine and appetizers!

We stopped here in the afternoon on our first day in Lucca. It was pouring outside, and nobody was out, so we were skeptical if they were open. We opened the door and were greeted with a warm smile from the bartender/waitress--a refreshing thing after spending a week in larger cities rome and... read more

Really great location with outdoor seating. The facade of the San Frediano basilica looms right next to the outdoor tables. The food is fairly good, I wouldnt say excellent. We tried all the pastas on the menu. Affordable wines, so after a few glasses wine and some sambuca you are set for the evening.

This osteria lies on a very pleasant piazza near the amphitheatre. It offers a relatively small menu featuring local dishes, but it changes daily so you won't be bored if you're a repeat customer - we liked the food and atmosphere so much it became a regular stopping off point during a day's sightseeing. A lot of the clientele are... More

This little restaurant is located in a piazza near the walls of Lucca. We ordered two primi piatti and one secondo piatto, all of which were good. The service was friendly and helpful. Prices were good for the quality.

My friends and I are spending a month in Lucca, and someone gave us the name of this little osteria. What a great find. More intimate than most places. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and some great appetizers. There are some nice little snacks out during "happy hour", and the meals are delicious. Seems to be frequented by locals... More
