Always a favourite for good local Italian food. The pizza is my favourite. Lovely old world feel. Staff are always friendly.

One appetizer big enough for two people, two glasses of wine, two meals and one kilo of cheese the sold me set me back 75 euros. However they will automatically bring a bottle of wine (which you have to pay) and open it along with...bread unless you tell them not to! Now onto the review. If you ever have the opportunity to visit the city of Lucca "The City Of Walls" near Pisa than you must visit this place. Great atmosphere and peaceful. It was a great change from the tourists-catered menu you get from big cities like Rome and Florence. If you don't speak Italian then you can ask for an English menu. We ordered an appetizer for two people that consisted of cheese, three different types of meat with toasted bread. Each bread came with a different type of spread. Water of course is sold separately like any other restaurant in Italy. I ordered the "Tordelli Lucchesi 1895" an old recipe that consists of ravioli type pasta with meat inside. The outside is covered in a red sauce with seasoned ground beef. Very flavorful. The other dish was a roasted duck which was very tender and very delicious. This restaurant was so authentic, I can no longer eat in one of the many restaurants you see in Rome on every alley and street with patios outside. I highly recommended it.

The food was fine but please please learn to serve customers with drinks within the first 5-10 mins of arriving. We ordered quickly but it took 45 minutes to get out water / wine & bread and a further 15 minutes (1 hour) for the...first course to arrive. This seems to be a general problem in many Lucca restaurants. Otherwise it’s a good place.More

If you would like to feel the amazing vibe of Lucca visit this place in the evening, when this restaurant not only serves great food but also runs as a shop for locals. Great overall experience. And the rissoto we had was very delicious.

We ordered from the fixed menu with house wine. We were so full we could barely finish our meals. Great atmosphere.

Came here after a tip from a local. Had a lovely pasta primi and pork secundi. Bill for two of us was 25 euros. They were very patient with our infant daughter stomping up and down as well. Lovely place. Will definately come back.

Been here the past six years and it never disappoints. Best range of fantastic pizzas out there and the salads are amazing. Prices also very reasonable. Would highly recommend The cantuccini and Vin Santo makes a great dessert.

My husband and I wanted to have a special evening as it was our last evening in Italy. We are travelling with our two younger daughters and were staying around the corner from this restaurant. A bottle of Prosecco 11 Eur. Great quality and attentive...service. We shared a pasta dish (parpadelle) and for the main he had the fish of the day 17 Eur and I had a tuna steak. Quality and quantity! Our daughters shared a 4 formaggi pizza. Delicious. Overall we were satisfied with our visit but I recommend you to be observant of the bill if you don’t speak Italian. They had sat 1 bottle of rosè when I only had a glass of rosè wine. If you are one of those who don’t normally check your bill, I recommend you to do so! Luckily I speak Italian and could quickly see the Italian bill and identify something was wrong! I informed the waiter at the bar/cashier who quickly apologised but I’m just saying be attentive 😉More

Please do bear in mind that this review is based upon one visit but do take into account Italy is about pasta, amongst other things. The actual restaurant and interior is okay. My wife, son and I had an evening meal there one night. He...ate pizza no issues. My wife’s starter, caprese was good. Tasty tomatoes and mozzarella. I had mixed cheeses, which were nice although being English we do normally have them at the end of the meal but hey no problems. We both though opted for a pasta dish, I forget which now but we were both disappointed. Now pasta is supposed to be al-dente but this pasta was also in parts still sticking together because the starch hadn’t been removed. No Italian restaurant should be getting that wrong. It’s a basic so a little disappointing in that aspect.More

I only had 30 minutes to spend for dinner but I thought I should givevit a try, thought the restaurant was crowded. I found the perfect table and as soon as I explained I only had little time because of work, the waiter, Manuel, reassured...me and promised they would be fast! And...I had my gorgeous pizza on my table before then I expected!And we're not speaking of a precooked pizza, a REAL crunchy and tasty Toscanella with the best extra vergin olive oil on top of fresh tomatoes and mozzarella! I wholeheartedly recommend it! Great food, friendly atmosphere and you feel at home!More

I had a longing for some pork. Italians do great pork. We started with a fabulous anti pasto. Then shared the pork shoulder. Both were amazing and delicious. The grilled vegetables were unbelievable. I would give it 5 stars except the service was very slow....They need a bigger wait staff. Only 2 waiters and they were very crowded. Also only 1 English menu that we waited a long time for. In the end the wait was worth it.More

Great staff and very helpful with the menu. Great value and very good food. The waiter helped us chose the perfect pizza for us and helped us with the distribution of the ingredients n the pizza.

We read about this restaurant before visiting Lucca. We made great effort to find it and planned a special late lunch. We were met with a rude waitress who wasn't at all interested in seating us. She made serious effort to ignore us and only...seated some locals arriving after us. After attempting to communicate with her in English, she made an obvious nasty remark to a colleague. We decided to leave. Very unpleasant experience, will never return.More
