Dont' call it a cheeseburger. It's too good for that.

the best cheeseburger you will ever eat in your life! Served with focaccia, home baked using natural yeast, and using Fontina cheese, fresh salad and tomatoes, so delicious that calling it a cheeseburger is offensive. The fries match the burger: exquisite. Everything is made FRESH. But That's not... read more

We were already getting so hungry trying to find an open restaurant inside Lucca's walls. We ended up walking for almost an hour until we finally stumbled upon this Pizzeria. We arrived before 7pm and the place was almost empty. A couple of minutes later all the locals have arrived and the place was buzzing in no time. I believe... More

In my whole life I went to hundreds of restaurants and never never never I found such an awful service. Someone should tell this people to change job. It's really not understandable why they had so many good scores.

We arrived for a late lunch, at 4pm, and the owner received us kindly. We had a gorgonzoli pizza and a cheese and bacon calzoni. Both were very good! The house red is also good, and the price is low. Be sure to leave your work of art there! The customers make drawings on the table papers with color pens... More

The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was inviting and confortable, and we felt very welcome for our entire meal. The owners are a kind and gentle couple, and we will definitely come back! The pizzas were the truest italian pizza we've had to date. Excellent.

After being disappointed with so many Italian restaurants in this price range, we finally stumbled on this wonderful authentic Italian restaurant on a rainy night in Lucca. While so many others serve reheated pasta, we finally experienced home made pasta and the best salad we have had in itally. Reasonably priced drinks and great wine. We returned on our second...
