I have eaten there many times and have always been pleasantly surprised by the excellence of the food. You just show up, there is no menu and they bring you dish after dish with the best food you could imagine. The evening view over the Lucca plain is magical and the ambiance is just perfect.

No menu, no choices (unless you are allergic), food just bought until you can't eat anymore. Friendly service. Home style Italian cooking. Very affordable. Went back 2 nights in a row.

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of the villa we stayed in. The restaurant is only open for dinner and the menu is set - you get no choice in what you are served. Everything was delicious - home-cooked local food. We got an array of starters - different bruschettas, salads, meats and bread. This was followed by... More

The food, the welcome and the team at this lovely hill top Osteria are quintessential Italy. The set menu was perfect from start to finish with deliciously garlicky verdura then local meats and crostini for antipasti followed by wonderfully rich mushroom parparedlle, roast turkey and local pastries as dolce. Thank you so much Giomo for the best meal we had... More
