Puccini would have been horrified to find this establishment in his home town. We wish we had read the reviews on trip advisor before finding this eatery on our evening walk through Lucca. We paid a small fortune for meals that were barely edible -...More

Agree with what most people have written already, just wish I'd seen the reviews before I stopped and had a poor excuse for a lunch. Overpriced for low quality fodder, gnocchi from a packet, dryish salad, burnt bruschetta. Nice waitresses who I felt sorry for,...More

Worst pasta I had ever, however this was not the worst. We saw the poor waiters be treated badly and being yelled at. When we complained about the food and asked to speak to the manager I was asked to go inside to talk to...More

We arrived in wonderful Luca, spent too long looking around and then as a result had three very hungry children and no selection of eateries as it was siesta. We knew this but the spell of Luca was too strong! The placement of this restaurant...More

The only reason this place earned a two was because the tomato and mozzarella were fresh. Other wise it was terrible: the bread was stale, the oil and vinegar were cheap, and the tortellini was just out of a package. Don't waste your time.

We were wandering around the old city on Tuesday night. Stopped and chattered to two lovely waitresses. Decided to have a bowl of pasta and a glass of wine. The food was very ordinary, but worst of all was the bullish owner. The tables were...More

This restaurant served an appalling meal. The service was slow, the food was microwaved and the owner was rude, unreasonable & intimidating. They even charged us over the odds for the privilege of eating at wobbly outdoor tables! The drinks served were over priced and...More

They serve a the cocktails in tiny glasses. They ask more than 4 euro for a cola. The meals are super tiny and a shame for Italy. They ask money for the couvert... (that she throw on the table) and also... ofcourse they charge the...More
