Andrea's Vecchio Mulino manages to accomplish the impossible in that it improves every single time we visit. During our annual pilgramage in early October we were treated to yet another power pranzo that went on and on. We brought German relatives and American friends with us and all of them exclaimed that our boasting about Vecchio Mulino turned out to... More

We spent the evening here trying the gastronomy menu. What a treat. I would definitely recommend to anyone. Free flowing wine, super meats and a real taste of Italy. Beautiful.

Whilst visiting Lucca, we had researched places to eat, and even though this was an hours drive away, we just had to try it. We weren't disappointed. We were sat on a long table next to all the locals, and even though the server didn't speak a lot of english, we manages just fine. The food came in small courses,... More

The food was amazing, as many plates came to the table of many delicious offerings. Cheese, meat, salads, desserts. The Owner was very charming. Had a delightful time.

We were the only foreigners at lunchtime in this establishment so it was a very cool experience. This place is a purveyor of "slow food" so even for Italy it's a place to take your time. We did a coursed sitting and had "salty pie" which is kind of like quiche, italian chicken salad, some concoction of bread, olive oil... More

Wine bar with no real kitchen doing cold cuts, cheese and various tasting dishes to accompany a nice glass or two of local wine. The building is great, we went into the back room and sat surrounded by wine, and hanging proscuitto hams. Not the cheapest meal, but the choice we had, and the opportunity to sample a good selection... More

Going to this place is a treat; the best local food and wines! Best to go for lunch and ask for a mixed plate. It's not a restaurant with pizza, pasta, etc.. It's is tasting event!! Love this place. It's not cheap, but good value for money.

Andrea's demonstration of how to really enjoy the ham he carved was an entertainment in itself apart from the delicious meal we enjoyed.

Andrea's little osteria in Castelnuovo is a fantastic place for lunch. I have been there several times over the years and the quality of the food and the wine is excellent. Especially his dishes with Porcini are very nice, but also the selection of sausages is brilliant. This day we had the selection of everything which started with a salat... More
