Perfect food, excellent service. Special local biodynamic wines not only for experts. Priority home made pasta for my son. I recommend it to everybody who is looking for the secret treasures!

We were pointed in the direction of Vigna Ilaria by Paolo....the owner of Agriturismo Al Podere di Rosa down the road....telling us it was a 'little bit' expensive. It turned out to be a top restaurant, both in terms of food and price. We'd taken what we thought was ample cash with us....but one look at the menu sent me... More

My husband and I had dinner in the courtyard at Locanda Vigna Ilaria whilst also staying at the Inn. The food was incredibly fresh, tasty and interesting. The bread was beautiful, and beef heart starter, seafood pasta and sucking pig were cooked to perfection. We had a fab bottle of local, organic wine recommended to us at only 22€. Overall,... More

This restaurant is not in the main town, but take the time to go there and you will not be disappointed.

Attention to detail is what made this restaurant stand out for me - from the many lovely places I visited this trip. Seafood is... More

This restaurant about 10 minutes drive outside of Lucca is worth a visit to the city by itself. Locally sourced seafood, prepared to perfection in a variety of ways, great service and a very serene location makes this an extraordinary restaurant. We can recommend following the suggestions by the chef and let him do his magic, take the menu as... More

Host Andrea Massi works hard at making this a destination restaurant and largely succeeds, although he seems a bit over worked as he also operates the del Teatro restaurant in central Lucca. The emphasis is particularly on fresh local fish and produce, but the meat is locally sourced and never frozen as well. Dining outdoors in the courtyard is particularly... More

Candlelight, wine and superb food are offered at this quiet, sophisticated locale. Our server was helpful at helping us negotiate the menu which is only printed in Italian, and we chose very well. Our meals were superbly presented and tasted wonderful. All the food is locally sourced and the chef applies a creative hand. We enjoyed our meal in a... More
