Osteria di Meati is a local favourite haunt of mine. Food is good and excellent value for money. It has a lovely terrace and you will find a great mix of locals and non locals, couples, friends and families eating here. Please note it is not easy to find as it is slightly off the beaten track and google maps... More

This is a typical restaurant in the countryside near Lucca. Set in an an old house with vintage furniture, it has several rooms in which you can eat. The grilled meats were very good and the wine as well. Delicious cake for dessert. Recommended.

Highlights of the meal were the mixed grilled meat platter (superb!), sliced steak (tagliata) with fresh porcini mushrooms and fried porcini mushrooms. The pastas were slightly... More

We stayed nearby and this was the only choice late in the evening upon our arrival, however, we were not disappointed. Food was good and so was the house wine. Service could be a bit better but coming from Austria, we are used to waiters with a character. If you come in summer, sit in the garden and enjoy, mosquitos... More

Things are different when it's winter, for everyone and for everything. This is especially true for the Ostera Di Meati, that on summer is a small garden in a small village off the beaten tracks where you can sit back, relax, and be a poet when looking at all those reds, and green, and browns and yellow and a wolf...
