High quality food at moderate prices. We visited the restaurant 2 times; and were very satisfied each time. The waitors were friendly, the service was fast.

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.

Great food and a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed bringing 2 sets of friends and family three times to this restaurant because it's the best food we've found within the walls of Lucca. Great service, authentic and delicious food with a menu that changes ever single day. Not touristy at all. A local place and a great find!!! Price is fair... More

This year, for St. Valentine's Day, my single friends and I have decided to have a 'romantic' dinner just for the three of us. My friends got Tortelli and they said they were amazing, I'm not a meat loved but I decided to go for the lamb anyway. Delicious. Even the spinach were amazing. Then we got the same dessert... More

Felt rushed from the moment we sat down. Food and service average. There are far better places to dine in Lucca.

Although not being ones that eat meat we were able to get some excellent food and great beer although we did not like the salted cod and chickpeas dish as it was very tough but they kindly took it off the bill, thanks

The choice of gluten free food, quality of the food and staff knowledge of the food is excellent. This is all served without fuss or interruption to fellow diners. The atmosphere in the restaurant is lively, which makes for an enjoyable evening. The prices are reasonable for a tourist town location, so overall good value for money.

It is a family restaurant, but not so much during summertime. Then the tourist taken over. And for a good reason. Samuele, the owner and chef have over the last 20 years created a restaurant where Tuscan food not only are Tuscan food, but brought it to a gourmet level in taste and presentation. Lucca have a variety of restaurants,... More

It was recommended to us as a place having the best pizza in Lucca. Pizza was a bit dissapointing, it seemed not to be well done (cake was very pale and ingredients not cooked). However we got there a wonderful aperol spiritz drink and overall impression of the place was good. Nice location, near to a main street with a... More
