This review is for the restaurant at this hotel.
Me and my family were on our way from Pisa to Lucca. The road is very beautiful but it was middle August so it was simply too hot! We were driving with open windows despite the air conditioner. So we decided to make a stop and make a refreshing pause. At this moment we were entering Santa Maria del Giudice and we saw this hotel-restaurant. As we entered the restaurant we were welcomed in Italian by a nice young man, whose first question after welcoming us was: how would you like to have your water, with or without gas? Amazing! (Did we look so desperately thirsty?) As he noticed we were not Italians he kindly offered us a menu in English. We ordered three different dishes and they were simply delicious! I mean, eating in Italy is always a pleasure but this food was like home-made (of course Italian home-made!). We'd have ordered more if we knew it was going to be so good! One more point in their favour: the kitchen was almost closing as we arrived due to midday break but they were very kind and waited for our order to be taken, then they closed but we could still eat calmly, without any hurries. I highly recommend it if you want to taste the real Tuscan kitchen in a very nice atmosphere and be kindly treated/served.
