Excellent food

We were recommended this restarant during our visit to Lucca. The food, service and surroundings were excellent. We had a table in the garden. Remember to make a reservation. The restaurant is not easy to find if you don't know it.

Our B&B recommended Canuleia and made the reservation for us. By far, this was our best meal all around for the entire 10 days we spent in Italy. The garden is lovely and relaxing and the food was excellent. It was so good, we were surprised by the reasonable prices - an excellent value. We enjoyed the entire experience!

A good place but there is nothing special- outstanding considering the menu/ dishes, wine list, the service and the prices. Just average for an Italian trattoira in Lucca. The only con is the availability of outdoor dining in a relaxed atmosphere

Came to Lucca and used Tripadvisor to find a nice place to eat for the evening. I do recommend to make a reservation as there is not a lot of tables in their garden. You can tell that the employees are happy with their jobs, the managers smiling and genuine satisfaction with the place rubbed off on her employees and... More

This is the best Italian food we had so far! Great wine list as well and not expensive. Very good price/quality. Try the lamb chops with a bottle of Mastrojanni Brunello!!

Canuleia suggested by our guide, so I made a reservation for two for dinner. It's located just off the old Roman Amphitheatre. Table in the open garden behind the entrance. Service was great, food was excellent. My wife had scallops that she said were perfect, I had beef that was to die for. House wine was really quite good and... More

The restaurant has a beautiful garden at the rear, where you can dine al fresco. The menu is varied with very reasonable prices. Eleonora and her friendly, attentive team of staff made this a very pleasurable dining experience for us.

Lovely quiet restaurant with absolutely first class food. My 16 year old son and I both had a main course of lamb and it was the best food we had during our two week holiday. My wife's chicken and mushroom dish was also excellent. We were given a complimentary vegetable mix entree which was unexpected and very tasty. The overall... More
