“A late evening find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our family had just finished seeing Pisa and Lucca. We wanted to eat at a restaurant outside of Lucca on the way to Deccio di Brancoli where we were staying. After getting lost and driving throughout the hills of northern Lucca and not finding a place to eat we finally found this establishment. We almost didn't enter because the facade is that of a simple pizzeria and a few of the local elders were sitting outside smoking. Luckily, one of my sons decided to look in and waved to us to come over to the restaurant. To our surprise it was a full scale trattoria. We were the only non Italians eating there. The restaurant was packed with families. Surprisingly, the menu was written in both Italian and English. The food was excellent and our waitress was friendly and charming Our family was so happy to have found this restaurant.

“Gem of a place outside Lucca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Little place tucked in out of the way just outside of Lucca. Recommended by a local, we were not disappointed. White linen table clothes were a nice touch. Real local place...very friendly staff and menu with much more than pizza...but over a dozen types of pizza too....we had caprese salad, pizzas, lasagna, and speggetti with clams and mussels. Everyone loved their meal and wine and to top it off, the whole thing for 8 folks was only €82! We were happy to leave a tip and we will return. If you can find this place.....go for it

“Great home cooked traditional fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

For a great family meal which offers an extensive menu, lots of flavours,all home cooked and at a very resonable price then look no further than here.I have to admit, from the outside, there certainly is no indication that this eating establishment offers what it does ( as is so often the case in small Italian towns), but this small deli opens up into the rear of the shop into a good sized restaurant.The service was good and the waitress very friendly and helpful.Would def. visit again.

“Hale and hearty and cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Nice local restaurant that if it was not recommended, you would drive past. Great and wholesome takeaway and great in house dining too. Good for families with young kids and even teenagers!
