We had dinner here tonight and I can't rave enough about it! The food, the atmosphere, the wine and the service were all fantastic! The fried pizza bread with ham and soft cheese appetizer was amazing as was the chic pea tart! The sausage main course with beans was delicious, and please do not leave without trying the cheesecake! We... More

Almost felt like invading the locals' restaurant, but made very welcome (albeit put in the English speaking corner - I think because we came early rather than anything else!). Food was excellent, as was wine and ambience!

During our recent 12 day staying Lucca, my wife and I were directed to this gem by several locals. To our delight this was such a treat that we opted to eat there twice AND take a cooking class. We would highly recommend anything on the menu and if time permits take advantage of their cooking class that includes a... More

We were 14 people and had appetizers, tortelloni and pork meat, with red wine and water. Total per person 25€, that is value for money. They also have an outdoor patio, very nice... More

We ate here on our first night in Lucca, it is just around the corner from the hotel Ilaria where we were staying (owned by the same family I think). We had the 3 course set menu which was good value and included wine, we were the only English people dining and it appeared to be popular with the locals... More

We were told to come to enjoy the region's specialties, Farro Soup & Tordelli Luccesi (ravioli). Oh my were we grateful for the suggestions. We asked to split both dishes; which they were happy to do. They were both amazing & plenty to eat. The place filled up on a week night, so make a reservation. The staff were happy... More

Once again food was very good and staff were very patient with our large group and accommodating with off menu requests. Lively atmosphere and mainly Italian fellow diners.
