Great pit stop on The Wall

Depending upon where exactly you join the wall, this is just heaven to find on a hot day. It is one of two places to stop on the wall and by far my favourite. Yes, the other venue is also great but a completely different style, price range and atmosphere. I returned to this place even when not... read more

This place is ideal for groups of friends or families with different tastes. They offer various pizzas ans calzones, but also meat and fish. There are even two 3 course menus, one vegetarian and one vegan. We tried both and they were delicious. The setting is great, children can run, even play football in the vicinity. Pasta are homemade and... More

We stumbled across this restaurant while visiting Lucca. It's beautifully situated on the remparts and we had lunch with pizza's, pasta and a salad on the terrace besides the restaurant with a great view. Pizza's were great, pasta with porcini and black truffle fabulous and the salad a bit plain. With a little sharing everybody was happy. Very good quality... More

The setting for this restaurant is perfect being on the city wall overlooking the cathedral. The food is different and delicious. I had "croaker" fish (which is apparently sea bass) and salmon in a delicate sauce with chocolate and orange cream ravioli. Wow!! Husband had tagliatelle with tuna and porcini and was absolutely delighted with it. Try it, please.

Nice place on the city wall. Food was great. We all ordered different courses, and they all turned out great. Also have small sandwithes to go in a small bar inside. Execlent pasta. Remember to order side dishes (vegtables, potato, salad...)

We spent an evening in Lucca and walked by the restaurant placed in the middle of the evening sun. The food was great and the service too. We had antipasti (Cappacio & Mix of antipasti), prima (Lobster with black spaghetti) and dessert (ice cream) which were all really good. With 1/2L of housewine and sparking water, the tap ended on...

We rode our bikes around the wall in Lucca and stumbled upon this magnificent restaurant in its beautiful setting outdoors under the trees. The food was divine and the service attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant and suggest it is one of Tuscany's treasures.

After walking the city wall we were ready for a lunch stop. This impressive cafe was situated in exactly the right place - on the wall just where we'd started our walk. The outside tables gave a great view of the Duomo. The varied menu suited us all, plenty of choice. Dishes and service were perfect.

On a very warm day, we found the setting and the food were excellent. The menu included a variety of beers, pizzas and traditional Italian fare. The prices were in line with other Lucca restaurants while the atmosphere was superior. I would recommend this restaurant for any family traveling in Lucca!

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.
