We had eaten here before on our last trip to Lucca five years ago and had booked online. We arrived to find an enormous party having effectively taken over the restaurant. We were shown to a table but the noise was so intrusive that we decided to leave. The management (owners?) were very apologetic and said they hadn't realised how... More

This is a great restaurant with good food and great staff. The food is all cooked fresh and uses local ingredients, the prices are also very good.

We really enjoyed ourselves at Gli Orti. In fact we dined here twice in our weeklong stay. We loved the menu and the wine. The food was excellent! The service was very efficient and professional. We dined in the room to the rear of the restaurant and found the behind the glass cabinets were historical artifacts. Very interesting. While we... More

Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed our "room Puccini", furnished with antique furniture used to work the land. Our products are all of the territory, and cooked on the spot, as you have rightly pointed out. soon samuele cosentino More

Though possibly not the best location in Lucca, it had a relaxed and friendly service, very good value for money food. The pasta was freshly made, the tagliata was devine, the sides brilliant, the house red very drinkable and the puddings.. wow

We were recommended this restaurant by our B&B and it exceeded expectations. We had not booked and it was a very busy night for the restaurant but after a quick chat we were invited to come back 45 minutes later. The manager personally took us to a table, we preferred inside. We shared a house Risotto which was very good,... More

My family and I visited this restaurant twice on our recent trip we were delighted that they remembered us on our second visit even though they are obviously busy. This does not detract from their service they are very attentive and are always willing to help and nothing too much bother. We were delighted with the food also we had... More

We visited Gli Orti twice for lunch while on holiday in Lucca recently. We tried a variety of dishes over the two visits including pasta, pizza and meat dishes. While the food is traditional Tuscan, it is made with a very light touch and it is very assured, precise cooking with an occasional twist. The grilled local sausage with fennel... More

In a 6 day holiday this was the restaurant we chose for a second visit on our last night. We were a party of 3 and learned that 2 starters between us was sufficient. Roasted meat dishes, fish and seafood all good. The Italian red wines (we sampled a couple) excellent. The Prosecco was fine but not as good as... More
