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... read 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

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

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.
