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...

I found this restaurant on my last 2 days (sadly). Having lived and worked in Italy over 10 years ago, I was not sure whether the restaurants would still have the quality desired by real foodies. This restaurant delivers well beyond its location (tucked in a corner in a back street near the city fortifications). The food was of the... More

Not very Italian , felt like we went to a bad Olive Garden. Bread was stale food was tasteless. Very orientated to the British pallet or American. However the staff was great!

We ate here twice during our 10 day stay in Lucca. Everything we had was really good and had a definite "Lucchese" authenticity- farro and bean soup, the pastas (especially the gnocchi), roasted chicken, roasted cod and potatoes. The house wine is good, but we also ordered a bottle from a winery close to Lucca that was delicious. Nothing is... More
