Was recommended this place for my birthday dinner by a friend who lived in Lucca and it was perfect! It wasn't cheap, but it wasn't expensive either, if you were to have an equivalent meal in Sydney (my point of reference!) it could have easily been double the price for this kind of a dining experience. The foie gras entree... More

This isn't a cheap place, but it's also not very expensive, if you consider the package you're getting. The waiters are top notch. This is no restaurant where you wait to grab the waiters attention for 10 minutes or more. You got it – always. The interior is very cozy, with specks of vintage stuff everywhere, original emaille posters, e.g.... More

Can't speak too highly of the wonderful food! The menu is all in Italian but our charming and entertaining waiter patiently explained it to us, adding his recommendations. There is no wine list, but the house white and red were more than adequate. As we were leaving a torrential downpour arrived. Our waiter took pity and gave us another drink... More

Very patient staff helped 6 of us through the Italian menu. We each chose differently and were all pleased with our choice. The presentation was matched by great flavours. The food was Tuscan with a Miranda twist. I started with "Our Pizza" which I ate with a spoon. It was really tasty with mozzarella sun dried cherry tomatoes and caviar... More

Had worse food in Italy at this place: would have given a lower rating but wine was good. Risotto was like a bad soup. Waiter was rude which is fine by me if food is good, but this was not.

Friendly greeting and a really nice setup. The waiters answer questions and are very knowledgable about their food and what is coming from the kitchen. The menu is small but leaves nothing to desire. I had the 'polpo croccante' followed by the 'spaghetti with cicale' (special!) and a 'birramisu' to finish. The food is well prepared, balanced and as you... More

Recommended by our hostel owner and we enjoyed it. We were greeted by a really friendly host, although it was a bit Italian chaotic. Tables are close to eachother, furniture has some character as well as the old walls decorated with typical Italian stuff (not the Greek touristvtype !) which gives it a bit the feeling of being in somebodys...

Recommended by a friend who takes clients here when visiting and it didn't disappoint. Good location and lovely comfortable interior. The evening we were there was really busy but this didn't impact on service; the waiters were very helpful given out limited Italian and we're friendly & funny throughout. The food was delicious and we asked the waiter to recommend... More

Greeted warmly by 3 delightfully bohemian hosts, and they can cook! Inventive Italian cuisine. Porcini mushrooms were pressed to our noses on arrival & host number 1 explained what he was planning to do with them. Brush up your Italian you will need it! The scallop starter with beetroot puree was delicious. Lovely atmosphere, very relaxing and not rushed at... More

This restaurant was close to our apartment in Lucca, and was recommended by our host. And boy, was she spot on. We arrived early as Americans are wont to do, so had our choice of table, but the terrace and the interior tables were all filled in short order. We shared scallops for our antipasto, and it was wonderful. We... More
