I highly recommend the pizza at Gli Orti via Elisa. The combinations are creative and all of the ingredients were fresh. The service was great, too. I was a big fan of the house red. It was too hot to sit outside when we were there- great interior. Walk diagonally across the street to rent a bike so you can... More

This is a place with lots of character. Really stylish and a bit oldfashioned.interior. Very good service. We had very good ham, thick vegetable soup, roasted veal and a specialty of the house for dessert, grass cake! Like an apple pie, but filled with grass, raisons and pine nuts. Good, but not really pudding, more of a starter.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us and we were not dissapointed. We shared a pizza and a main course and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it, add 2 bottles of wine and a litre of sparkling water for a total of €53.50, good value for the quality. The staff were cheerful and helpful and service was good for a... More

We had just gotten to Lucca and the hotel directed us here for lunch. We sat outside on the sidewalk. Nice people. Nice wine and pasta. Lovely little spot. So first and second course and two glasses of wine. 60e. So you can eat for less but this was a very civilized lunch for a modest price. Can't miss here.

Almost the whole menu was gluten free and staff were very helpful and obviously understood coeliac disease. That aside, the food was excellent and very good value. The Tuscan sausages were delicious.

I went to the restaurant as part of a large post-wedding party. My needs as a coeliac were catered for with great care. All the food was delicious and although it was a buffet, my gluten-free pizza was served to me at the table. Staff sought me out to advise me on the many elements of each course which were... More

So it's 4 years ago since i was here first, and i remember this restaurant for the high level of food and service. It's fair to say that the restaurant still is above high standard, but last time was superb, and compared to that i was a little disappointed - Last time the restaurant had the best Bisteca al peppe...

We found the parking spot but it was full, and we threw the car on the pavement along with many other... More
