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...

The hotel owner where we stayed gave us a card recommending three restaurants in the town run by the same family and told us where was convenient parking spot for the first one of them we tried, Gli Orti. We found the parking spot but it was full, and we threw the car on the pavement along with many other... More

We ate here on our first night in Lucca, and what a fantastic start to our holiday! They didn't have a table available straight away but looked after us very well at the bar with a few spritzes while we waited. I had the black truffle pasta first which tasted as good as it smelt. But the goat for my... More

Popped in one night on the way back to apartment very late. They still served us with only one other group in the restaurant and they were finished. Great staff and a super meal at the end of the night when in sure they all wanted to leave. 👍🏻

Had asked our host recommend a good spot for pizza & we duly visited this restaurant. We opted for a table inside and were shown through several Stylish rooms before being seated in the rear of this large restaurant which wasn't overly busy so lacked a bit of atmosphere. The menu was lovely but we just wanted pizza of which... More

Excellent pizza, best so far. Lovely bowl of pasta with meat. Buccellato with ice cream was fantastic. A very pleasant evening and the back room where we ate had great air conditioning too. Would recommend to others.

After two hours strolling around this beautiful ancient city, we stumbled upon GIi Orti, we were shown a table outside on the piazza, superb porcini risotto followed, washed down with a delightful Tuscan red vino. We slept like babies

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
