We arrived in Lucca mid afternoon and very hungry. We came through the ramparts by the entrance closest to the train station when my Aunt spotted this place. I was leery at first as I figured a place on the ramparts with Caffetteria in the name was probably a tourist trap with microwaved food. I'm glad I didn't vocalize my... More

We ate at San Colombano twice during our recent visit to Lucca. San Colombano is on Lucca's City Wall, a lovely and lively green space surrounding the old City. The first time we were there, we had just arrived and were too early to check into our accommodation. We sat under shady trees on a warm afternoon and had a... More

I visited Lucca for two weeks and ate at many different places. Of all of them, this was the best. I had heard about it early in my trip, but hadn't tried it until a few days before I left as it was never in my path. I am so disappointed that I only had time to go twice. The... More

We stopped for a beer. Apparently we had sat at the wrong table, so the waitress insisted that we move to a different one. Given the place had perhaps three tables occupied this seemed both rude and unnecessary.

So when you are tired of all the tourist restaurants and craving for a really good and well prepared meal.. this is the place to go. The food is so good, the atmosphere nice, the staff was spot on and the presentation of the dishes is simple and elegant. The theme of this place is simply good cooking. We went... More

Just walked off street without a reservation although was early evening and I think any later we wouldn't have got a seat. The historical situation on the walls of Lucca contrasted with the modern and chic interior bar and restaurant. The food was excellent and service quick and cheerful.

We chose this restaurant for dinner, having had an afternoon drink there in the cafe, and chose the risotto (for two minimum) alla Rosa Marchetti with guinea fowl and asparagus. Eating lovely food under the trees as the sun went down was a great delight, at reasonable prices compared with some we had paid in bigger cities. Service was attentive... More

Booked a table for my husbands 65th birthday. It was a lovely warm evening and we were given a lovely table outside with a view of the cathedral. The service was professional and made it feel like something special. We shared a starter of beef carpaccio salad with cheese shavings. This was very tasty. I then had the main of... More

On a lovely autumn day we enjoyed a high quality lunch here. My wife and I both ordered different ravioli dishes. Mine with lobster and a delightful seafood sauce was first rate. My wife enjoyed a duck and potato ravioli which she also scored highly. The bread was a bit average and we endured a fairly lengthy wait to be... More

We had cycled passed this restaurant a couple of times and thought it looked impressive. On our final night in Lucca we decided to try it out. We hadn't booked and so we weren't afforded one of the better tables but that really didn't matter because as the night closed in the soft music and subtle lighting gave our table... More
