Located just steps away from the curved walls of the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro. The place has the charm of a secret garden; the menu is simple and full of delicious local produce. We enjoyed a delicious three course meal with bottle of wine and coffee for 90 euros - great value.

We arrived in Lucca a little bit late but the host of our B&B managed to get us a table there for our anniversary dinner. We got a table in the very beautiful and peaceful courtyard ! The atmosphere was great, the waitresses were super friendly and helpful and the food simply delicious ! I'd go back there in a... More

You could easily just walk past the unprepossessing entrance to this trattoria, which would be a shame because it's very good. Go through the small interior out to the back and you find yourself in a lovely shaded courtyard restaurant. On a hot day it is a very nice place to eat. As almost always, children are well catered for... More

Before our tour of Lucca, we had an amazing lunch here. The tour company "Artviva" recommended and arranged this reservation for our family of 5. We sat in the back patio on a lovely warm sunny day and had such a wonderful time that we hated to leave to start our city tour!! The meals were all delicious and also... More

A relatively small place from the outside, but with lots of seating in the quite & shady garden to enjoy a nice & freshly prepared regional dish and a sip of local wine ! Located in the midst of the old town close to the Piazza dell' Anfiteatro.

My wife and I had dinner in the garden tonight, AUG. 14. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the setting is outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our experience. Eleonora and her husband, the chef, have a gem that is not to be missed.

We visited twice, Sunday lunch in the garden and a weeknight dinner in the garden. The setting is perfection, the food and wine is amazing, the staff are always pleasant. The young owners (the chef and his wife who runs the restaurant ) are so eager to please. They take such pride in their restaurant and it truly shows. Highly... More

Great atmosphere and superb service. However chocolate tart was overcooked in the microwave and the pastry was very dry. Chocolate was not tasty. Wine was very expensive... After the excellent reviews expected just a bit more
