Staff are very attentive and efficient. The restaurant is in a nice spot with an interesting street scene, but inevitably there some car fumes and human smokers if you eat outside. The food was well cooked and nicely presented. It's a very safe choice, if a bit uninspiring.

Stopped here for dinner on the recommendation of our accommodation owner. They serve some dishes that are very traditional to the area, and looks like the menu changes on a regular basis. We made a reservation, and we were glad we did as the restaurant got quite full over the course of the evening. Our server was very friendly, and... More

This restaurant was recommended by the receptionist at our hotel and we were not disappointed. The decor and atmosphere were 100% Italian. Staff were very friendly and attentive and the food and wine were both amazing. Everything freshly cooked and at reasonable prices. We were only in Lucca for two nights and couldn't resist going back for dinner on the... More

Had a really nice meal here with colleagues from Piedmonte (Northern Italy) & the UK. The food is really good and there is a nice mix between vegetable & meat dishes. There is a good wine list with a sommelier on hand to help with recommendations. This was a recommendation by our hotel (Albergo Celide) and a really good choice.

We visited this restaurant in the autumn because the interior is much more impressive than the tables outside in the summer. Food and service very good

Used the table booking system for the first time. But there were enough free seats . Anyway - great service from the first second when I entered Ordered pizza Mediterranea. The capers couldn't be separated ( because I don't like ) but I took it because I love anchovies. Pizza was quickly served and it was so so tasty .... More

I'd eaten here twice before but I remembered it being much better. Good efficient service despite it being busy. I chose the grilled baccalà (salted cod), but it was over cooked and full of oil... And the desert wine was oxidised but the sommelier changed it upon request. Frankly expected better given its popularity.

Normally, I would avoid giving bad reviews, but I have learned a few things from this experience. We went to this place one evening in October, following the recommendation of the hotel staff. Should we ask the hotel for place to eat in the first place? Maybe not! Anyway, we have not made a reservation and it was 7pm.The place... More
