AMAZING pizza

All 4 of us had pizza so can only comment on that but it was SO good. I had a pepperoni pizza which was so tasty and also shared my boyfriend's pizza which was on a rye base topped with stewed artichokes and ham (we added tomato sauce) and that was incredible. We had a baby with us and all... read more

We had signed up for a day tour of Lucca while on a cruise and unfortunately happened to be in town on the weekend of a huge Comic Con convention and the town was filled with thousands of particpants, many in costume. Luckily, our guide set us up with a reservation at Gli Orti di via Elisa and we walked... More

My wife took the Lucca's Cooking Class at the Gli Orti di via Elisa restaurant. Chef Samuele Cosentino and the interpreter Sergio were extremely kind and helpful. My wife made fresh pasta from scratch. She learned to make two kinds of pasta. The first one was square pasta with baby artichoke and Italian bacon. The second one was the noodle-style... More

I have always come to this restaurant when I have been in Lucca but when I went to lunch the other day and asked them where I could go to take lessons on wine, they told me about their new addition; "chatting about wine". As I was on my way to Sicily I asked them if the sommelier could focus... More

Found this little restaurant while walking around one afternoon. Made a reservation and glad we had, they were having a big party for a large group of Australians. The service was fine at the start but when a large group comes in things can get a little confused. Pizza and wine were fine and I would try this restaurant again... More

Others made dining arrangements so we happened to eat here twice. Both times were excellent and we'd go again if we return to Lucca. Large menu of typical Tuscan dishes. The restaurant is popular with locals, always a good sign, and was packed on both of our visits

Dinner with our group was so enjoyable, due not only to the wonderful selections from the menu, the prompt and professional service, but also the energy of the local diners as they were seated around us thru out the evening. The pasta dishes were fabulous and the house wine choices above average. A great place to return time after time... More
