Good food, good service

The food and the service were both good - overall value for money. Convenient location on top of the city wall.

We went here during our trip round the city walls. Great food, friendly staff. Perfect location. Service a little slow, but that didn't bother us at all.

After spending two delightful weeks all over the Tuscan region, we spent two nights in Lucca and decided to eat at this restaurant on our last night. After being seated, we ordered wine and an appetizer from one waitress who then never showed her face again. We then had to get the attention of another waitress to order the appetizer... More

Attractive location on top of the wall which surrounds Lucca old town. Food was good but service was poor. Suspect there is no management of staff. Our wine finally arrived between our two courses after several prompts. Also inadequate lighting to see meal as darkness fell…

We have stayed in Lucca about a week and this is definitely the best restaurant we have experienced to date. The setting on the city wall is a good location with tables inside and outside. The food is of a very high quality. I had duck and my wife tuna with mushrooms and truffle garnishes. Both were excellently cooked. Starters... More

Just passing by and decided to have quick bite. The food turned out to be fine dining style. We ordered a beef cappacio, a warm seafood salad and fried fish. The dishes were nicely presented and the seafoods were fresh with lots of flavour. The services are good and attentive. Price wise, i consider the price is extremely good. A... More

My wife and I stopped here for dinner on a Monday evening and were surprised that we were the only people initially int he restaurant around 8p. Eventually a couple of other tables filled in, but it was what you would call a very light dinner crowd. This restaurant has a very modern feel - from the lit seats on... More

This restaurant is located on the top of the medieval wall that surrounds Lucca. We stopped for a wine and light lunch. Food, wine and friendly service were all great.

Looks expensive but a pleasant surprise it was quite reasonably priced. We had the rather exotic mixed carpaccio (beef, deer and bison) and a typical Tuscan antipasto plate with a glass of wine - excellent. Strangely there were lots of staff and only a few customers - the place should be more popular but I think the season is coming... More
