Description: The Restaurant Botton d’oro is part of Albergo Villa Marta, just 5 km from the historical centre of Lucca. Also open to the public since 2009, in a cosy, intimate and sophisticated ambience, the cooking is tied to tradition and, reinterpreted by the imagination of our chef and refurbished to current taste. In fact, ours, is basically a cuisine with the best dishes of Lucca tradition, enriched and refreshed by new interpretations of vegetables and cheeses and various proposals for fresh fish. The love for the tradition, the quality of raw materials, seasonality and authenticity of the products, has always been the cornerstones of our kitchen. The basic ingredients of typical Tuscan products are: extra virgin olive oil, spices, fresh seasonal vegetables, including King Tomato, eggs, flour and cheese. From May to September you can dine outdoor on the large terrasse overlooking the garden of the Villa. Thanks to the beautiful surroundings of the hotel’s park it is possible to organize lunches and dinners for special occasions such as baptisms, communions, confirmations, anniversaries, birthdays... with creative and customised menus looking for the traditional flavours of Tuscany, or small meetings and business dinners, with the exclusive use of the restaurant hall. Menu for celiac: Botton d’oro join to the project "alimentazione fuori casa" (dine out) of the 'AIC (Italian Celiac Association).

We stayed at the hotel (Albergo Villa Marta), so were happy to have several breakfasts (great fresh fruit and raspberry yoghurt), lunches (try the pecorino cheese selection with honey and onion marmalade) and dinner. The food is straightforward, fresh and very tasty and served with polite friendliness. There was plenty for us fish eating vegetarians to choose from and lots of tasty juices and great wines. All the while you sit on the decked terrace under capacious umbrellas and look over the nearby hills as the light forever changes. Enjoy!

Good food and service, beautiful setting over looking the gardens and hills beyond we stayed in the hotel and had two evening meals, and several snacks by the pool at lunch time.plenty of choice on the menu. We ate outside because the weather was beautiful, but inside looks just as good.we would have been happy to eat in the hotel all the time, but its good to explore.

Luckily this restaurant was at the hotel we stayed at, so we could go twice. I would consider driving out if I knew about it though - loved the servers, loved the food, loved the atmosphere. It felt like you were in somebody's house, in their dining room. Total bill got a little pricey because we did all courses, wine, coffee, etc, but the price per plate was actually pretty good.
