Invited by a good friend who chose this venue for his 60th birthday, I was impressed by the incredible setting of this well known restaurant (with a few rooms too). Easily accessible from Lucca on a rather windy and steep road, set on the side of a hill, surrounded by vineyards, one had a splendid view of the mountains and valleys! Starting with aperitifs next to the large pool at sunset, we sat outside at round tables for dinner. We had an excellent cold buffet with an incredible variety of italian starters accompanied by pro-secco and excellent local wines. The main course consisted of the local roasted 'maiale' accompanied by vegetables and potatoes. The birthday cake was excellent, light with berries accompanied with the local pro-secco to toast our host! The lights at night throughout the valley made this location an incredible setting! The maitre and staff were wonderful.A couple of orange baloons beautifully lighted by candles were sent to the sky... A magical evening indeed!.
