This restaurant was suggested to us by the hotel receptionist and we were so happy with it that we went back the next day too.. everything about it is good - friendly, professional and attentive service, mouthwatering food and nice decor. We had pasta, pizza and desserts and everything was worth each penny and each calorie! Definitely recommend it to... More

When in Lucca, this is our local. Family run with charming staff, it is always very good. The food is reliable and plain, always correctly cooked, and the wine list is first rate. Recommended are beef, tribe, rabbit and veal. Delicious, small roast onions. There are three room including the entrance and the middle one is best and illustrated above.... More

Had lunch during Lucca Comics 2016, so pls take in acount how busy everything can be. Even with that, the service were very friendly and well prepared. 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

Well, we were really pleased we did as we had a fabulous meal and all four of us loved what we had. Four different dishes and... 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.

Been to Orti while in lucca for the comics. We had to book in advance, the service was quick and the staff very nice, we had a nice chat with our waitress. Our antipasti dishes were amazing, and i had a pasta with sausage and cabbage that was very nice. Very nice Chianti to go with. Only desserts were average

A very nice, upscale place inside the Lucca walls. It does get busy and when it's crowded service can seem rushed, but the food is great. Our waitress pointed out what could be prepared gluten free for me. For us two, we paid 5 Euro cover charge (coperto). Prices are the same as other Lucca restaurants. Excellent food, locals and...

On the outside, this restaurant doesn’t seem to offer much in terms of space and service but once you’re inside, it’s a very different story. For starters, it has multiple rooms –indoor and outdoor - with cool décor. The servers and maître d are friendly and accommodating. The wine list is terrific with lots of options and reasonable prices. The... More
