This modern restaurant is conveniently located on top of the town walls. Service was slow and we had to ask for our side dishes which were eventually delivered after we finished our second courses. The pasta was good but my suckling pig was disappointing with flabby, fatty skin rather than crisp crackling. The waiter asked if everything was okay, like... More

We use this restaurant often and it never disappoints. A more modern style of food than restaurants like Olivio & Canuleia ( 2 other favourites) which do more traditional Tuscan food. Dishes like Beef cooked with honey and fresh pear sound strange but taste great Good pizzas ( but you won't find many bad ones anywhere in this region) so... More

I have dined here several times, with friends and with my son who is a professional chef. The food is wonderful, and the view of San Martino are lovely. Very good price to quality ratio. I would recommend this for visitors to Lucca.

We had dinner with a group of friends at this restaurant, and had a great time. The food was excellent, the wine they recommended fitted perfectly, and the service was very good. And all of it in a very nice atmosphere. All in all this was the best dinner experience we had in Lucca, and we definitely recommend a visit.

This restaurant had been recommend by the reception at the B&B I was staying at and on arriving at this restaurant on my first night in Lucca I asked the young male waiter for a table for one outside as it was a beautiful setting and a lovely night. He replied that they were booked out but could offer me... More
