Our second visit to this place and doesn't disappoint if you can live with the crowds (many of which are locals) and that it is slightly rough and ready (or rustic) round the edges. The Tuscan bean soup is still standout amazing - as comfort food it takes some beating. The roast pork was also very tasty and the tiramisu... More

A big disappointment our experience in Trattoria Da Leo and we knew it in fact when we checked the menu what was very short and so simple, nothing typical and kind of meals you would prepare at home. It was late and we were hungry but leaving the restaurant crossed our mind. Looking around allowed us a better view on... More

Loved the food and the waiter was extremely friendly. But we felt like we were forgotten about. He was busy, and he asked for understanding because it was so busy. We had to ask for oil and vinegar and salt and pepper each individually to dress our salad. Yes we understand and we enjoyed our meal "Italian Style" but it's... More

We stopped there during our evening in Lucca. We had no excpectations, since we were not searching for a place to eat in advance, but it seemed nice. The staff was very welcoming and they were all very kind but also not very formal in a way and we liked that. The atmosfere was very nice, we ordered pasta and... More

We had seen this place recommended on quite a few blogs so we went to check it out. We were lucky to get a table without a reservation! The dinner was very good and the service was friendly and helpful!

We chose to have lunch after visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Be sure to make reservations, even for lunch. Good food, great ambience and excellent service. Be sure to try local dishes as well as the "house wine". You will not be disappointed. Since it is a very popular place, the noise level can get high. However that is... More

Just a perfect Italian place... Good food, good wine and Excelerator service. Can really recommend this place. Don't think, just do it;-) Go for all the side-orders, this just makes the meal perfect ;-)

We stumbled across Trattoria da Leo our first night in Lucca. They had a lovely outdoor seating area and when we inquired, we were told that all tables were reserved. However, if we could be done by 9:00, we could be seated outside. Since it was 7:30, we agreed and were seated. The food was excellent and so were the... More

Da Leo was the only place that we ate in Lucca which we chose from a guidebook and, sadly, it illustrated the problems that popularity can cause. With loads of diners hovering at the opening time of 7.30pm it was clear from the moment that we sat down that this would not be a relaxing or leisurely meal. Some of... More

The Trattoria da Leo was one of our favorite restaurants during our month-long trip to Italy. The quality of the food and the moderate prices really make it stand out. To that I would add friendly and efficient service. Try the roast pork with roasted potatoes and stewed eggplant and the spinach ravioli. This is justifiably a very popular place... More
