Loved this place. Good simple food. I had a calzone which turned out to be a sandwich made on a pizza dough. It was big for lunch, but soooo good. My wife had ravioli which she loved. The place is decorated with drawings from kids that have been there. Great atmosphere, friendly staff.

Excellent and budget restaurant. We ordered there two pizzas and spaghetti carbonara. It was very tasty. There was also homemade wine.

It is not a typical restaurant, it is small and the walls are cover with paper sheets that have drawings and messages from the costumers. The service is not a 100%, it is done by the owners, however the pasta we had was delicious and not expensive. So if you are good food and fair price that is recommended

We've been travelling in Italy for a month, and this is the best restaurant we've been to, with great food, service, and quiet out of the way location. If we weren't leaving tomorrow for Siena, we'd be back! Ask for their specialty fantastic desserts, and the pizzas are incredible. Very exceptional value, a family restaurant that you should visit

Very cosy little family-run restaurant. It located outside the city walls so there are no occasional visitors - maily locals or people who came there knowing where they go. We took couple of pizzas which were very good.

Book before go for this place because they have few tables. We ordered 1 first plate and half starter and we was literally exploding. The prices are really affordable and the food is really good. A must-visit restaurant in our minds.

A local friend introduced us to this pizzeria trattoria and we had the most delicious meal together of seafood antipasto with beautifully prepared prawns and octopus along with seafood pizza with scampi and mussels still in their shells ( bowl provided for the shells) and fresh local wine. The host and hostess were so playful and warm, it felt like... More

This small place is wonderful. The owners are attentive and want to please. Their chef is outstanding. The location for parking and walkin into Lucca at Porta San Pietro is perfect. We went back twice for lunch and had we stayed longer would have gone for dinner. Small so make reservations. Simple food, clean, big variety. Love love it.

Very small trattoria with excellent venue. Prices are really cheap, for a good choice of typical italian dishes (and more diversity than the standard pasta). Menu in English and patient staff who help the client figuring their order out.
