We had dinner here a couple of times while staying in Lucca and the food was very good. First night the wait staff were a bit disorganised but because we were on holiday we had plenty of time. The menu is compact and handwritten and a bit difficult to understand, but the staff are lovely and happy to suggest depending... More

We had a wonderful lunch at this restaurant. It is small and narrow but really cozy. Traditional Italian food cooked to perfection. We had Mozzarella di Buffalo and Tripa, something you do not find everywhere. I love it. Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly. Do try it. Adrian Switzerland

Great traditionell food in a relaxed atmosphere, good wines at a reasonable price and a friendly staff ( owner?) We had papardelle with funghi porcini as a pasta course and Carpaccio (dry marinated) and trippa as a maincourse ( tripe). Excellent prepared and good value! We'll be back.

Stumbled on this place while checking out Lucca. So glad we tried it! The atmosphere is really great. Brick walls and interesting decor. The man and woman who run it are very nice. The food was incredible. The house red wine was very good. A great find in the walls of Lucca and we will be back!

We read the reviews for this small restaurant and thought we would give it a try. The proprietor allowed us a choice of seating in this bijou establishment and we chose to sit in an alcove at the rear of the restaurant. We were give attentive (but not overpowering) attendance by the staff, who explained the menu options in English... More

I love this little restaurant! Small, rustic and charming. Stefano, Elisabetta and Gino are so sweet and the food is delicious every time. I have been here multiple times this summer just to see what is new on the menu. It's very affordable too, which is definitely helpful with how often I want to go back and eat there.

My spouse and I have a very nice lunch here in June 2014. It’s not fancy, so I wouldn’t recommend it if that’s what you are looking for, but we liked it very much. Low-key, slightly informal atmosphere, which was very relaxing; substantial, and tasty, menu choices, reasonable prices. I would certainly dine here again.

We visited this restaurant twice whilst we were in Lucca. It is just a lovely rustic place. The food is first class and a good choice of menu. The menu was explained to us in English. We went as a couple,then again as a family of 4 with 2 young children. It was just perfect each time. Do bear in... More
