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

The food was ok. The house wine was fine. We went twice. Seating outside is comfortable. The minestra di farro lucchese was so terrific we ate it two days in a row. Now if I could only find the Recipie!

We've been coming to Da Leo since 2007 and have never had anything less than a good time with good food . Now with 2 young children in tow, we enjoyed a number of relaxed family lunches at Da Leo last week. The food is not cutting edge but it is traditional, tasty and good value. If you have a... More

Tried this little trattoria out as a result of Tripadvisor research. Had to book to get in on a weekend as it is quite popular. Had a table of six, all meals were served quickly by very friendly staff. Just good authentic italian cuisine. No complaints - food was great. A good experience and will return again before leaving Lucca.

This seems to be a popular and often recommended place. I found it just average, but maybe I hit it at a bad time. The salad I ordered was fine, but my meat dish was lukewarm at best, with chunks of pork drowning in a bland sauce. The service was indifferent. Maybe we hit it on a bad night?

This friendly restaurant is just off the main square in Lucca. Most of our party of 8 enjoyed their food, chosen from an interesting menu. My fried chicken was less successful. It was deep fried in batter. Flavour was good but it was hard to find much meat on the (probably) thighs. It's not an expensive restaurant and is certainly... More
