Found this place on TA thought we'd take a chance due to the many positive reviews. The Tagliere di salumi e formaggi with the bread was definitely the highlight...delish! We also had a margherita pizza which we thought was very good but Americanized. Much like we get at home. All and all if we were trying to find something good... More

This place is right outside the walls and it's genuine. You don't have a endless menu full of things but what they do (more than anything their specialties) they do it VERY well. The deco is very fresh and creative. Very good prices

Tortelli Lucchesi paired with Gutmann Hefeweizen ... Perfecto! Easy walk from the train station and prices that are ultra reasonable.

We were attracted to this restaurant by the various positive reviews on tripadvisor. Well, they are absolutely justified ! Not only was the food (a variety of pasta dishes, pizza and more) very good, the owner also helped us get a taxi to our B and B (which in Lucca is nearly impossible after 8 o clock, if you try...

Went to Pisa on the train one morning planning to stay the day. Saw the tower and wanted 'outta there' because of the heat and hordes of people. We decided to go "home" to Lucca for lunch. Decided to see what was outside the wall. Less than two blocks from the train station is this uniquely decorated spot. Palapas cover... More

I ate here yesterday with my boyfriend. But I would absolutely disapprove of going here. Our food was too salty (didn't taste like anything but salt). It was heated up in the microwave and the pasta was of a tough substance. Please do not go here for your dinner! It is not worth your money and time!
