I have been a couple of time before writing this review. The owner and the staff are tremendously friendly, really helping explaining the menu and the ingredients. Sitting outside is very nice especially in June / beginning of July when it’s not too hot. I loved the whole grain spaghetti with salty ricotta and dry tomatoes as well as the linguine with vongole! I found the salmon with cream cheese a bold choice for a restaurant in Lucca, a very small and provincial town. The crostata with albicocche is delicious and reminded of my childhood during those timeless Italian summers. I will go Back as often as possible !

Great food and lovely setting, especially in the summer with the vibes of traditional Italian piazzas. The food is tasty, fresh - good for both seafood and meat!! Prices are reasonable considering it is located in Lucca’s city center. Good spot for a summer dinner with friends!!

We stumbled across this little gem of a restaurant by accident and found it to be outstanding. We had the steak and salad, the fish of the day for the main, stuffed zucchini flowers for entre and a cherry panna cotta for dessert. The atmosphere in the restaurant was surprisingly comfortable, eclectic and friendly. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable and the food just outstanding. The menu included some local delicacies and some more unusual items like heart ragout. Full marks !!!

From the moment we asked for our menus in English, our server adopted a sour demeanor that only worsened with each course. It’s a shame, because the food was in fact delicious. But it’s hard to enjoy a meal when you feel so unwelcome. By the end of the meal our spiteful server was positively ignoring us—forcing us to ask her not once or twice but THREE times for our check, even though we’d waited patiently after each ask. We couldn’t wait to leave the restaurant. I hope the owners come to realize what a drag this server is on their restaurant’s hospitality. We’ve experienced nothing like it in our travels through Tuscany.

Tasteless is the best word I could use to describe the Truffle and Egg appetizer my husband and I both ordered. It was a fried egg topped with a few flecks of truffles that had absolutely no smell and therefore no flavor. We spoke with the waitress and she said they are black truffles, not white truffles. That’s a ridiculous statement. Black truffles have a beautiful perfume too. We hardly saw her after that. The man whom I assume was the owner/manager also made himself scarce once we informed the waitress about the tasteless truffles. When it came time to check out we went to the cashier and said the appetizer was completely tasteless. She too tried to pass it off as black versus white truffle. We said we know what a truffle should taste like. She went to speak with the owner/manager, came back and admitted that 1) other customers complained of this too. 2) the truffles they got this week are “dead” and have no flavor. I replied that they shouldn’t be serving them to customers. Better no truffle than “dead” truffle. She begrudgingly removed one of the Truffle and Egg appetizers from the bill. So we ended up paying 13 euros for 2 plain fried eggs. Very disappointing. I’m embarrassed for them- knowingly serving bad food to customers, still charging them and never apologizing. They should have removed both appetizers and the manager should have apologized.

We have been there many times over many years and have always been more than satisfied. Last night was our best experience yet. We love the very well thought out wine list for its variety, surprises and affordability. The service is friendly and expert. The atmosphere is comfortable. Nice taste in music too! We enjoyed a long full meal with some new friends with antipasti, primi, secondi, contorni, dolci and some amaro to finish. Too late for coffee! While everyone in our party was happy with everything ordered, my pasta course was the best I have had there and that says a lot. Melt in your mouth gnocchi with pesto, chopped pistachios and shrimp carpaccio. Lovely in every way. The friends we invited to join its were very impressed and even though we have been there many times, so were we. I have been in the food and beverage business for over 45 years and recognize a smart, well run place when see one and this one is one of my favorites. A meal of this caliber in any American city would have been more the double the cost we gladly paid. Make a point of going here for a dinner when in Lucca.

We had an excellent meal at this restaurant. The decor is really interesting with historic pictures and items from the region’s past. The service was very efficient and smooth. I had an amazing beef tagliata with roasted potatoes , simple but perfect, accompanied by a lovely glass of Sangiovese.i would definitely recommend this charming place for a meal on a trip to Lucca

Mixed feelings. Nice location, very friendly waitress. But very small portions (fish, gnocchi), not impressed by taste of the latter, and lots of patience required despite the terrace being half empty. Really didn't want to leave that review considering how nice and helpful the waitress was, but kitchen not following..

This is our second visit this week. The food is absolutely wonderful and not overly expensive either. We had the veal with tuna sauce as a starter - excellent. The pasta is the best I have ever had and the half-cooked tuna was mouth-watering. The staff are friendly and speak good English if you are stuck. Lovely atmosphere and a bit off the track of all the packed tourist spots. Linda was a fabulous waitress.

Lots of great reviews for this place brought us here. Also a local recommendation. It's quite good but ours was not quite a five star night. Thunderstorms earlier in the evening had them abandon outdoor seating and squeeze people in. Staff was exceptional, especially Linda who runs the front of the house with energy and tact. There were some long gaps in the service but the food was good. Antipasti and mains were tasty. My cotoleta was massive and well prepared. We opted not to stay for dolci as the owner was looking conspicuously at the early arrivals as later reservations were waiting. We'll give them another try on another Lucca visit.

We arrived at 7:25 for a 7:30 reservation and were told "we are closed." said we had a reservation. was asked to wait outside then shown to a table in corner up against toilet door. One person was expected to sit in the corner without room for torso or legs. The other was expected to sit in a way so that the toilet door would hit the diner every time the door was opened. We asked for a different table and they said they could not accommodate even thought the restaurant was nearly empty.

We really enjoyed dinner in Manzo. I ordered an excellent octopus on burrata and potatoes, definitelly can reccommend! All the pasta is perfect as well. Even if we are tourists and can speak only english, they were really kind and helpful, willing to speack eneglish as well. Thank you for your welcoming attitude! Unfortunatelly, we had bad experience with a restaurant near this one - Anna a Leo.

We were recommended Manzo by our hotel and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was brilliant - just the right balance of noise so we could hear ourselves speak. The staff were excellent and all their recommendations were perfect (including a recommendation for a great restaurant in Siena as 👍). The food was so tasty (as was the wine) - all in all an excellent evening.

We were returning to Lucca after three years and our first stop for dinner was Manzo! Mary was helpful as always with the wine selection and menu items. A delicious dinner. We hope to be back before we leave this charming Italian city.
