Whilst in Lucca a gentleman gave us a map of Lucca that also advertised this restaurant After checking reviews on trip advisor we thought it would be worth a visit. When we arrived early evening on 9/7/2016 the restaurant was empty. We sat down and a waitress gave us a leaflet with menu on. She didn't speak, didn't ask if... More

We are sorry for what happened. We take very seriously this platform, but to improve the service we need to know where the incident occurred, because we have different restaurants in Lucca. Thanks for the comment . Even negative reviews help us to improve. Have a nice day. Mara Meo . More

Restaurant seems to be located at piazza San Francesco, few tables on piazza. In the garden lots of happy customers eating their home-made pizza's. Pizza's were served quick, although it was pretty busy.

It is economic and pizza margherita is great. They have nice coffee and the richest spritz! I usually visited the cafe side rather than the pizzeria but I suggest it to everyone, also in the summer they have a nice lunch menu! In the afternoon, and it is much cheaper than in the centre.

I had a great pizza with fresh grilled vegetables and parmezan cheese and mozzarella. My bf had the tourist menu, pasta carbonara and an omelette with jacked potatoes. An abundance of food for a great price! This is your to-go place if you want a relaxed meal on a nice terrace, quiet and cozy.

Unfortunately, only found this on our last day so only ate here the once. And it was only 5 minutes walk from our apartment. The food and wine were lovely and reasonably priced as out of the main tourist area. Service was excellent (as with all of the bars and restaurants in Lucca) so will definitely be on my places...

The best pizza's we had during our stay in Lucca. The owner was about to close around 15:00 but he stayed open for us so we could have a pizza in the sun! Very friendly!

We visited this restaurant twice in our week in Lucca and both times were impressed with the quality of the food. The salads were the best we had in Lucca for instance and the fresh ricotta on the succelente salad was sublime. There is plenty of choice, including local dishes such as necci (chestnut pancakes) filled with Nutella. Service was... More

Located on a beautiful square - Piazza San Francesco. We wanted good pizza and we got them here. Very friendly service staff, and comfortable big seating. We got there as soon as it opened and it did fill up within the hour. Good sauce and fresh toppings. Glass of wine, medium birra spina + 2 pizzas - for 22.50e. We... More
