We found this place walking around in Lucca. The staff is very friendly and the pizza is very very good. Highly recommended!

The above says it all. We visited Luca for the day from Florence and found this amazing place on trip advisor. We have been in Italy for 1.5 weeks and this is by far the best pasta I have had. The restaurant has loads of character and is a family run business that deserves its trip advisor awards for the... More

We visited on August 2nd the Tana dell 'Orco: we were extremely pleased with the service: for a mere 13€ we had an incredible meal: the cooking was one of the best we have ever found in restaurants or pubs of this kind in Italy, and let me point out that we are Italian, so our standards are quite high....

After reading the great tripadvisor reviews, we decided to eat lunch here instead of going back through the wall into Lucca. We rented bikes near the train station and riding around the wall and through town, we stopped here for lunch before our train to Pisa. Everything is made fresh and takes the time for it. Our family shared the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant after parking our car near one of the gates of Lucca. We hadn't seen any reviews prior and were we impressed! It's a small restaurant, you could nearly miss the small front, but the food and service were impecable. We had a pizza, salad and a calzone. Everything was huge, freshly made and tasted great....

The service was immediate, polite, and attentive. The food was prepared fresh and quickly and it was the best foccacia i've ever had. Also try the arancini! They are prepared on the spot, are enormous, and nothing beats the taste! They also have the coolest decoration of all the drawings/wrtings/poems people have written for them hanging on the walls and... More

This is another place that our hotel recommended. There is a big salad on the menu that is amazing. It is enough for two people and the ingredients are fresh and taste awesome. My panino was a vegetarian one with chickpeas and eggplant, it was good too. The owners were very nice and it was fun to chat with them.
