You can easily walk past this little gem, nothing to look at outside but once in, transforms - gorgeous seating in a garden lit by lanterns. Food very good, little pricey but worth it.

Wine list great too. Price very reasonable €150 for all of us including a few entre and a couple of deserts, coffee and a bottle of... More

We stumbled upon this trattoria quite by accident, down a side street, but were very pleased we did. Through the main restaurant is a lovely courtyard with tables set out under large umbrella's. The service was excellent and the food just as good. It was not the cheapest place we had eaten in Lucca and I dare say there are... More

A wonderful venue, very central but we sat outside in the garden. Be careful about ordering too much, portion sizes are generous & it's tempting to have a starter, followed by a first course & then a second course. The first course pasta dishes are divine but quite filling, so stick to a starter & first, or starter & second.... More

We had booked Da Pasquale for the Sunday night but as fate would have it their chef was ill and Pasquale recommended and booked this restaurant for us - which was very kind of him to do so. We had a wonderful night sitting in their beautiful garden and one of the best meals on our trip through Italy. Service... More

Small unassuming Street frontage opens to a small interior room then onto a large private courtyard area. Canopies provide shade during the day and intimacy at night. Warm friendly staff although I felt service was a bit rushed at times. Food authentic Italian with complimentary chefs appetiser. Main prices €16-18 , appetisers and primary courses €10. Lovely restaurant that I... More
