Usually stop on way back to Lucca from airport. Good place for lunch - mainly had fish dishes and all good. House wine is more than adequate, price mid range, good value for money. In summer have eaten outside.

A nice restaurant near our hotel. The service was nice and friendly. The food was authentic and good, with large portions. The restaurant works perfect if you just want to have something to eat for dinner.

The food at the Skipper was very tasty and the portions were large. You certainly don't leave feeling hungry. Even though it was very busy, we didn't feel as if we had to wait a long time for our meals. The menu was varied with many choices. Would defiinitly recommend this restaurant to others.
