Mara Meu had tables out but no customers. The staff from the restaurant directly across from Mara Meo (maybe Mara Eco) kept going over to Mara Meo to collect supplies such as wine bottles, cans of coke etc. Anyway, we had a large pizza, large salad, and a large bottle of water. The pizza was excellent, and the salad was... More

Our first night in Tuscany and Lucca, we headed here late in the evening and it was busy, but we were quickly served drinks and had our orders taken. The small pizzas are very reasonably priced (€6.50) and are plenty big enough for one! The salads are also huge (also about €6), and were covered in all sorts of tasty... More

Ideal stop for a lunch when visiting Lucca. Nice location and the large pizzas really are large. Mix of local and tourist customers.

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...
