Description: A cute outdoor cafe that is open late at night when everything else was closed. We arrived in Lucca late in the evening and by the time we went out to dinner, nothing was open. We strolled though the town and found this cute outside cafe that was serving great food. Louis and David are the owner proprietors and they are the only two staff. So friendly and great food and service. We went back often and it was always busy. Louis is the front person and so friendly and engaging, David is the chef. We still think about them and that cute place.

We ate here one evening. The food is tasty and good value. Our waiter was chatty and friendly and added to the evening. After an excellent mixed starter of local cheese we were too full for a dolce but we were brought a little digustivo despite that. Would happily return!

Spent a very enjoyable evening here in April 2014. LIked it so much we went back and took some friends the next evening. Louis, the restauranteur, is very welcoming and very attentive and great fun too. He makes you feel special and takes the trouble to discuss his menu with you. He works incredibly hard, as does David, who does... More

My wife and I had a pleasant dining experience. The service was above average. The decor is whimsical but the food is top notch.

I read other reviews for this restaurant, so was encouraged to find it, in the maze that is Lucca. Even though it was early in the month, the place was quite busy, however we were offered a table inside. We ordered some wine, but found it too sweet, this was no problem for Luis, he simply took it away and... More

Tonight was my birthday meal, we had a wonderful evening eating and drinking at this small family run restaurant. All I can say to sum this place up was, perfect food, lovely wine, wonderful atmosphere and fabulous host! Thank you Louis for making a great day even better.

After a long day in Florence, I stopped by here late evening time. It is only a small restaurant, yet they moved tables around to accommodate me. I chose two platters on the recommendation of the waiter - I was not disappointed! Lovely fresh food, great wine!! The staff were extremely helpful & friendly.

Paris Boheme was one of the most memorable meals of our honeymoon - and my husband'a favourite dish ever! We were seated, with no reservation, on a tiny table in the square overlooking the Puccini statue. It was romantic, the service was exceptional - friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding (especially tordelli lucchese) and we were given complimentary limoncello... More

Oddly, we found that many restaurants in Lucca close earlier than is common in the rest of Italy. We selected this restaurant the first time simply because they were willing to seat us at about 8:45 pm as other restaurants on the Piazza were closing. We were wowed. We ended up returning for another meal because we absolutely LOVED the... More

My husband and I consulted tripadvisor before setting out for dinner in Lucca and decided upon Paris Boheme. The evening prior, we had enjoyed a delicious dinner at another restaurant, but the server was stuffy and unfriendly. While his manner didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the food, I wouldn't return there. Our experience at Paris Boheme could not have... More
