Lovely restaurant tucked away but worth seeking out. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Food delicious. I had the fresh pasta with black truffle, fantastic. Restaurant caters very well for people with coeliac disease.

We happened along this place and loved the menu so we stopped for a light "ish" lunch. We shared the Fisherman's Salad (Rocket Salad [argula], Cherry Tomatoes, Spinach and Slices of Swordfish) and the pasta (can't recall which type) in a black truffle sauce. Both were simple and excellent. We also tried the house rose which was perfect on a... More

This restaurant is in the basement of the House of the Bernardini's. We ate outside on the street level, as so many Italian restaurants offer, but there was a basement area that you could go down to also. This area was tastefully decorated, but the food was the reason for our visit. While doing our research before our visit, this... More

Best food we've eaten in Italy so far!! Lovely staff and beautiful dining room downstairs. Had the suckling pig and pasta with truffle and both were amazing plus the free homemade bread and glass of prosecco topped off a wonderful evening! ❤️❤️

We had dinner with our two young children here and were impressed overall. We had not booked, and were offered a table inside, downstairs. The setting was fine but we were a bit concerned that since all the others tables were outside the service might suffer - however, this was not the case and our waiter was extremely attentive and...

We went to this place twice. Only came across it because it was near a highly recommended restaurant which unfortuately had the continuous misting on to cool things down but makes it very humid. So we walked a little further and found 1586 Osteria Cantine Bernadini. We booked for dinner outside of course. Has indoors but the weather was beautiful,... More

We went at this restaurant after reading the recommends at Trip Advisor. 17 really hungry people waiting for a good experience. This was almost the worst restaurant experience ever. No service, food delivered at wrong time. Stone hard bread. Go everywhere else....

Dear Guest, we are so sorry of your bad sensation. I have to say that your group arrived in different times, during the waiting time we served complimentary water and complimentary prosecco wine. The order takes time because you desired different check, but the most important thing is that you can non use bad words only because you wait 20... More

We happened across this osteria on our first night in Lucca and were attracted by the 'special' of pasta with truffles. It was absolutely delicious but I noticed people at a table nearby had ordered the pork and I could hardly take my eyes off it. So... the next night we just had to return to try the pork which...
