We didn't have a booking but we were welcomed warmly early evening. You enter through the old food shop area into a nice restgaurant.Later it got busy. We very much enjoyed a vegetable antipasto/starter and then had Papardelle Cinghiale and also Tagliatelle pomodoro both pasta...dishes very nice but not great - a good bottle of red wine helped and the service was good and friendly. On seeing the pizza at the next table and watching the wood pizza oven in use I would choose that over the pasta next time.More

Looks very inviting from the outside - however, food was disappointing all round. My husband's fish soup was shocking - slopped all over the dish by the waiter and hardly any fish at all in it . Sent that back and tried the mixed fried...fish - well terrible!! Looked like a plate of scraps from the chippie. Hard to tell what was in the batter - it seemed like just lumps of batter! Extremely disappointing. Pappardelle Cinghiale was average with undercooked pasta. More than just a dente but a rock harde! Fortunately we weren't charged for the soup as even the waiter could tell t was terribleMore

I ordered a pizza which was nice enough. Although we didn’t feel too comfortable throughout the meal. Got the impression tourists were not welcome.

We booked during the day and visited as a family of 3, 2 adults and a baby/toddler after stumbling across the restaurant in our exploring of the town. The staff were very kind and attached a booster restrainable seat to a chair for our little...one. Complimentary bread was lovely, however would have been nice to have butter or oil to accompany, was good for soaking up sauces post dish though. Beer pour had a lot of head and when settled was below the full line indicator. Pizza was really good and the ravioli was melt in your mouth delicious. Food was good, staff were lovely 🙏Highly recommend for anyone looking for a meal in Lucca.More

Food was OK but staff were hurried and unfriendly on this occasion. Also the decor has been spoiled with the hanging of amateur pictures for sale.

Ate here on two occasions during our week long holiday. Food was delicious, well presented and very friendly service. An interesting and non touristy place. Pizzas looked delicious but we opted for the main menu. On the second occasion we opted for the fish dish...which when cooked was filleted at the tableMore

Mads a snap decision to eat here as we didn't want to trawl around the city finding somewhere to eat. So pleased we did as excellent value and lovely location outside one of the gates and by the Fosso stream. The pasta was very good...and the salad was the most interesting that we had in our 9 night stay. Service was friendly.More

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.

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.
