I really enjoyed our dinner at Gli Orti. Without a reservation we were seated almost immediately in the inside garden, which has a really cosy feel to it. Staff very friendly, service good, personal but slow (it was a very busy night). Food was lovely. Restaurqant came recommended by a local friend and was well worth a visit. It is... More

Add this to your lust of places to eat. Pizza is great and the fish is fresh and cooked to perfection. On the main road of Porto Elisa

I had the pleasure of sharing a meal with a friend in this fabulous Restaurant in Lucca. English speaking knowledgeable waiters were very obliging and the food is so tasty. A definite delight in Lucca.

We came as a family and had the best peach and cured beef pizza. Had both the house red and house white wine and they were fantastic. Staff very friendly. The chef came out to chat with us. Love this place. Yummm.

We had a very good dinner at Gli Orti. The stand out dishes were the baked courgette flowers and risotto. The latter was served with crisp prosciutto and figs: a surprisingly successful marriage. The one slight disappointment was a bland sauce on the gnocchi. The restaurant has an extensive wine list. The service was excellent. If you hope to sit... More

Ordered 'flying squid king prawns and scampi ' was presented with a plate full of prawn heads and tails and legs but not one prawn! No scampi... More

Visited this restaurant twice during our couple of weeks in Lucca. The food on our first visit was excellent, especially the mushroom risotto. Nice food second time around although not as memorable as our first visit. They are very helpful with gluten free options and even have nice GF bread, a real surprise!

First night we ate several courses but after one of our number had a pizza the other family members ordered pizza on our second night. The pizzas were different; courgette flowers, truffle but main menu excellent. Googling recipes to see if I can repeat at home. wise... More

This restaurant came recommended, but we found it mediocre, at best. The server confused our order and brought the food out incorrectly (one appetizer with the rest of us getting our main courses, then the last main course on its own). The food itself was just ok. One entree was tasty enough but came out lukewarm. My dish did not... More
