Good popular atmosphere although with fashion level. Wide menu choice with many recipes based on Tuscan tradition. Eaten farinata - I.e. Vegetable soups with polenta flour and picchiante dish - I.e. Stuffed cow's lungs According to friends at table, both dishes were really corresponding to tradional taste. Accompanied by a bottle of lucca's red wine Fubbiano yards. Waitress very friendly...

This place, slightly hidden away from most of the tourists is a typical go-to lunch- and dinner-place for the locals. Very down to earth and authentic. Nothing fancy. Highly recommended if you want simple, typical local food. Just plain good.

Ran here for dinner on a rainy night on recommendation of a local- it did not disappoint- Pasta lucchese was amazing- best pasta we had on this trip- the dining room was full of locals, so that is always a good sign. we had a slight issue with check when we left, but our server was quite busy and just...

This restaurant is a well-known favourite among locals and travellers. This is a special place where you feel welcome immediately and where the large staff all know what they are doing. We have eaten here twice in three days, have sampled several of the traditional Lucca specialty-dishes and will return for more soon. The service is prompt, the menu extensive,... More

On a Saturday night with other restaurants sparsely populated this place was just about full. As far as we could tell all locals. Families, couples, large crowds of friends. Food is plentiful and delicious. Fresh pasta a must. Only down side is that place is a trifle too warm and too bright. But otherwise definitely you must visit one night... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by my B&B host as it was also the closest one to where I was staying. The place came alive with locals and their friends and family at dinner time! The service was good although the waiting staff spoke minimal English. They did half size for me for the pasta dish as I wasn't a... More

I like to go sometimes in this classic trattoria in Lucca. The restaurant is very classical one, not renewed in the years. Rooms are big so it can be noisy when crowded. Plates are almost the same in any season (only 2-3 daily dishes), but there are some "cult" of the cousin of Lucca. In the 1st courses you can't... More

We were delighted to find this restaurant. Very friendly helpful staff, nearly all Italians eating there, couples and family groups. Service and food was excellent and reasonably priced. (You were made to feel as a friend not as a tourist) We went twice whilst staying in Lucca and would definitely return.

Tratoria da Giulio has been around for ages and people still come over for both lunch and dinner in large numbers. I can easily see why. Less expensive than most of the higher rated places in Lucca, it offers a winning combination: hearty, well prepared food, nice surrounding (white tablecloths, no less), happy and attentive staff, and good house wine--all...
