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

After walking 4km around the city walls of Lucca it is a delight to find this restaurant (under stated as a Caffetteria). It is located on the walls facing the Duomo. Service is excellent and attentive and the food matches this. Despite being greeted by uniformed waiters the price of the food was extremely reasonable. The children rated the pizzas... More

We were directed to this restaurant by the owner of the B&B we were staying in. This was by far the best food we have had so far in Italy. Our waiter, Andrea, was very helpful when we were making our choices and was very attentive to our needs. Thank you Andrea ! Everything we ordered was delicious. ...try the... More

My girlfriend and myself had a wonderful lunch at San Colombano at the wall around Lucca. We had the best ever pecorino prepared. Really a must if you choose an antipasti dish. We will be back.

Stopped in for a light lunch and ended up having a full meal. Fresh and innovative, both the food and the decor. Located in an old building atop the ramparts, the interior refurbishment makes for a urban modern feel. Service was good and wine list looked impressive, but didn't indulge since I was cycling

This restaurant is located along Lucca's City Walls. We were seated in the courtyard on a perfect summers' day. The atmosphere is really lovely and the food was sensational. The serves are generous and the service was prompt and efficient. You must try the Focaccia as it is amazing - we had the tuna, rocket and tomato and we all... More

We decided to use this restaurant for our last evening meal in Lucca. We had done a recce earlier in the previous day, going there for a mid-afternoon beer and looking at the place in daylight. It seemed to be just what we wanted, so we went back on the Monday night for dinner - the place was quiet, with... More

Quiet, nice atmosphere, feels like a proper restaurant. Soon realise- it is a proper restaurant and the chef means business. The pasta dishes are like heaven, the wine is reasonable and delicious. Will definitely be dining here again and again. Best restaurant in Lucca- a real gem.
