It looks like a fast food more than a nice restaurant. Plastic glasses etc. The pizza is good and cooked in a real fire oven but it's a bit disappointing. Nothing extraordinary.

This pizza place has the most amazing pizza I have ever had and its Neapolitan style. The flavors are perfect together and the smells makes my mouth water. In addition to the service with a smile the prices are fair. I feel that any negative comments written about this establishment are personal and not biased on the quality of the... More

We had a late lunch at this charming, local spot. The pizza was the best we had in Italy, and the prices so very reasonable. The insalata mista was large enough to share and very fresh. They have indoor and outdoor seating and seemed to attract a local crowd. Would go back in a heartbeat!

We were a party of four staying in Lucca and turned to Rick Steves' book for guidance who highly rated this pizzeria. We sat indoors and ordered two different pizzas and were pleasantly surprised - so much so that we returned the next day and sat outside in the sun. Absolutely the best! Staff was very gracious and more than... More

you choose your pizza, they cook it and you pick it up when ready. It's a restaurant without the service which is fine and works well with kids. Plenty of choice and very reasonably priced. Located not far from the main drag.

We first came here 10 years ago and have kept coming back. It is cheap because you order and collect your pizza from the counter and take your plates and rubbish back too. A great tasting pizza can cost as little as 5 euros here...there is no cover charge. One with lots on is 8 euros. You can drink water... More

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.
