Lovely dinner

Perfect (simple) Italian food. Pasta, fresh fish, fresh herbs and a good local wine for a good price. Also our kids loved it!

Although the irony of eating a huge plate of salami and ham whilst Morrissey whilst the smiths' "meat is murder " was playing on the restaurant stereo was not lost on me, I had a great time stuffing my face at a very reasonable price. Very down to earth, very nice!!!

Thank you so much for taking care of us for a friend's birthday. We came in on a recommendation and you did not disappoint. Wild boar pasta (English version) was beyond. Amaretto torte for bday cake was just the best. Thanks to all staff for kindness and chefs for great food

We were on a day trip to Lucca from our cruise stop in Livorno and wanted a quiet lunch spot away from the main piazzas and lane ways. Had the prosciutto and melon. Not the best I've ever had but certainly not the worst either. Good value for money and very friendly staff.

A sweet outdoor cafe peppered with locals, near imposing cathedral San Frediano. Bring your Italian language app because the menu is not in English but staff very helpful. Local businessmen and passing bikers (the nice quiet kind, not motor bikes) make this great for people watching. Fresh porcini and risotto, plus do not fear in di bagno, light comes on... More

A buzzy, young atmosphere at the tables outside this small osteria in the Piazza San Frediano. A nice small menu of genuine home cooked fare. We enjoyed simple, but tasty pasta dishes and great house wine. The service was brisk and courteous. Definately off the tourist track which we thoroughly appreciated.

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 florence (was nice to get that small... 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.
