Great family restaurant. Quick service. Lots of food on your plate. They do run out of things so be prepared to change your mind. Hot, fast, fun, loud and happy. Outdoor seating. Easy to find!

Been here only the one time upon recommendation from a local. Glad we went, busy, noisy but service helpful and positive along with great food, I see some reviewers are critical of a small menus - Mmm I'd rather ten dishes done right than twenty dishes that are slop. Considering how popular this place is and how good our meal... More

My fiance and I have been to Lucca twice, once last year, and once last week. The first place we headed to the moment we arrived was da Leo, and it just never disappoints. The place is always completely full, and the food is literally one of the bests I've ever had - and I've been to many, many places... More

If you are not a food critic, it is ok. As said the food is nothing special. Pasta, not fresh pasta. Gnocchi very sticky and soft. Salad ok, Food without a soul. The two waiters were nice and working very hard. Good service. In my opinion the cook should look for something where he can be passionate about again.

We arrived in Lucca and headed to Trattoria de Leo on a recommendation. As others have stated, it is very popular with locals as well as tourists. The outdoor seating quickly filled up while nearby restaurants remained quite empty. We were lucky to be seated at the last available outdoor table. It was a beautiful, balmy evening. We were hungry... More

We ate a simple pasta on the assumption that a good restaurant can't get it wrong. Well, they did. No trace of any fungi in the tagliatelle and the spaghetti with pomodoro tasted bottled. Having made these dishes at home many times, knowing how easy it is, only added to our disappointment. We won't be going back.

We would have liked to sit outside but the restaurant was so busy, we accepted a table inside, very full, very popular, friendly server , the house wine is quite good, tortellini with zucchini and mozzarella is yummy!

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
