You know that you have found a great place to eat when you are surrounding by locals. The atmosphere is wonderful and so is the service. The food is traditional tuscan food and delicious. Make sure not to pass up the after meal grappa or limoncello that they offer free of charge. I have eaten at the Trattoria da Leo... More

I found Trattoria da Leo on the Lonely Planet guide and, as usual, the recommendation was great. We arrived pretty late for an Italian lunch (it was 2 pm) and the restaurant was still very crowded. We asked for a table and the owner was very friendly, in 10 minutes we got a table. I had a typical spelt soup... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Lucca. The first was to meet friends and we joined people waiting for the place to open for dinner. We were quite quickly seated. Friends were keen to try spelt dishes, the produce from the area. Food was very good and we were aware we were seated with locals; always a good... More

The trattoria was closed the night before for dinner however, it was open for lunch so we stopped in. It was a great place to have lunch in Lucca. The food was good. There was not anything special or spectacular about the food or restaurant. Just a good place for lunch.

Ate here 12 OCT 14 with a friend. We ate inside but there is nice outdoor seating if it is available. Good family restaurant inside the walls of Lucca, located just few meters from Piazza San Michele. Our meal was delicious (Melazane all' appetitosa; Carpaccio; and Arista arrosta con patate arrosto.) Nice large servings. Ask for specials and they do... More

This is a family place with wonderful food. It is cozy inside, but we sat outside to see the passing scene. Wonderful Tuscan selections. I had a bean and faro soup that was excellent.

On the recommendation of a well known European travel author we tried da Leo for late lunch. Food was okay but nothing special. I had a flat and thin dried out chicken fillet and my wife had what I would call a fried meatball. Service was good and attentive but with all the restaurants in Lucca there are better in... More

Eight of us had a meal at this Restaurant which comes highly recommended in a few publications I had read prior to visiting Lucca. We were all totally disappointed. We were herded into a large room with little grace. The service was appalling and the food no better. I have visited Italy many times and would rate this as one... More
