Sympa !

Not the best pizza of my life, but a friendly and quick service, for a very decent price. (only one euro cover charge per person, 5 to 8 € for tha pizzas, 2,5€ for a beer)

I saw this restaurant mentioned in a travel book and decided to give it a try. It is down a small street near the Church of San Frediano. The Pizza is outstanding, cooked in a wood fired oven with "oozing" cheese, reminding me of great Pizza when I was a youth. You order at a counter, have a seat and... More

We stopped into this pizzeria during our visit to Lucca. The pizza was delicious, and the owners were friendly and accommodating to travelers that did not know much italian. On our way out, the owner gave us each a tiny cornicello for good luck. When we got back to our car we saw that one of our doors was ajar,... More

There are nine of us including 5 kids so it can be difficult to please everyone but this did us all proud. As others have said it's a simple place but the pizza are delicious. We visited a couple of times, once when busy and once when empty but the food was consistently good. Thoroughly recommended.

My husband and I frequent the Bella 'MBriana and have never been disappointed. Their pizza is top quality and the restaurant is has a great atmosphere. Definitely stop in and try for yourself!

Stand in front of the Basilica of San Frediano facing the basilica. Then walk down the street to your right. Voilà, Bella 'Mbriana Pizza will be on your right. Definitely not fancy, just some of the best pizza you will find anywhere.

Other reviewers have written about the procedure when ordering so I can't add anything there. I would like to add that my wife and I hunted and found this place based on a suggestion from a friend and found this one of a couple best pizzas on our trip to Italy. Well worth hunting for.

Two friends and I had a very very bad and quite shocking experience there. We ordered one salad and two seafood risottos and the squid in the risotto was so hard it was inedible. As we complained to the waiter we were first left to wait for ten minutes and as we brought the plates back to the restaurant asking... More

I don't remember the name (something like the Italian flag maybe?). It has basil, fresh mozzarella and tomatoes - one side was green and the other red. Delicious pizza. We decided that if this pizza was good then it was time to try anchovies because chances are they would be better there than in the US right? No, we still... More

Great seelction of toppings for all tastes and good prices. Choose your pizza, pick your beer or wine, pay the bill, sit down with your beer, Take your cutlery and wait for the pizza which was baked in a stone oven and made the pizza very good. I don't eat pizza much but this was very good and costs about... More
