Of course we went back to this nr. 1-restaurant in Lucca after having returned in Tuscany a few weeks ago. Beforehand we were sure we would not get disappointed. How true this turned out to be.

Second time in Lucca, we were looking for a nice dinner place for 7 persons. We made a reservation one week in advance. Service and food were great. Pasqualino did his very best to make us feel welcome and special. For the occasion, he spoke French. We enjoyed 4 different kinds of olive oils, great white and red wine, and... More

This is the place you go if you care about food as experience. It feels like going home, the result of Pasquale's warm personality, and the attention he and his staff give to diners in each of his 33 seats. Guests leave not only well sated but smarter about the qualities of olive oil, wine, and the imaginative culinary twists... More

Everyone who goes to Pasquale's talks about Pasquale, and why not? He's the heart of the place, its entertainer, its wine and olive oil and dining expert, its congenial host. But the menu -- ahhh. One of my favorite starters is the ratatouille, not the usual mush of eggplant but a lively mix of flavors. I love the risotto with... More

Pasquale the owner makes you feel at home. We took all his suggestions from pasta to meat to sharing dishes. You do need reservations as the place is not big unless you go at 7 PM at opening.

We have been going to Pasquale every time we are in Lucca. The food is simply awesome with imaginative pasta dishes and the tenderest steak with lots of truffles we ever had. Pasquale the owner is really passionate about his food and wine. Going to Pasquale is a must if you enjoy good food.

The title says it all. We stayed in Lucca for a week and ate here 4 times. Everything we had was great. All the dishes had several layers of awesomeness that just go crazy in your mouth. And what even made this a great experience was the host, he made explained everything to us and recommend things that were great.... More

One of favorite meals in Italy. Completely unpretentious, but the quality of food and service could easily warrant a pretentious establishment. Pasquale is hands down one of the finest restauranteur I've ever met. He clearly does this for passion and it shows. He is completely honest about his wines, will not over sell, and will provide exactly what you want.... More
