We had just arrived in Lucca at 8/9 pm and we're looking for a meal, we found this cute restaurant and thought we would give it a try! It was delicious! The food was so fresh (I recommend the 'plain margarita', that's what I would name it, and the wild boar pasta, these were both delicious) The atmosphere was good... More

We were looking for somewhere away from all the "tourist" Pizzeria's and through tripadvisor visited this restaurant. A little away from the centre of Lucca (a 10 min walk) this was just perfect and we both enjoyed a good Italian lunch in an air-conditioned inner room - just perfect.

We had 2 very nice meals at this restaurant. We were over pizza and pasta and enjoyed our chicken and pork meals very much with an extra amounts of vegetables. It was great to get bigger helpings of vegetables! On the second night we went we found the wait staff to be inattentive and not overly friendly.

We ate inside which was less cramped than the outside tables. The food was beautifully presented by friendly staff. Large portions are standard so pace yourself! My octopus and potato salad was delicious as was my wife's courgette flowers. The pizzas we had were thin crust and lots of topping. Good food but in July/August book your table.

Excellent food and kind service, although we were charged for vegetables we weren't served. The food we did get was very well prepared, flavor full and nicely sized portions. Desserts were out of this world! Come early or reserve a table, this place gets packed quickly by locals!

We have been twice to this restaurant. Great Toscan kitchen. Antipasto: melon with proscuitto, carpaccio and toast with fishmousse. Pasta with tomato and cheese (advanced mac and cheese), risotto funghi and traditional rabbitdish with beans. All very tastefull. The maitre d' had also a good advice about the wine. Local wine was very nice.
