Situated outside of the Anfiteatro, Baralla vies for business against the tourist traps in the Piazza and does so by providing tasty hearty meals, in big portions and making sure everyone is happy.
If you are undecided with the pot luck choice of ristorantes jostling for your custom inside the Anfiteatro's walls, step outside and try the Baralla, its solid Italian cuisine will not leave you disappointed.

We had lunch in Osteria Baralla at june 8th 2013, during our day visiting of the fantastic town of Lucca. This is a very nice trattoria, and a dedicated family business, with typical and great italian food. The ambient is very warm and enjoyable and the restaurant is located right across piazza del anfiteatro. Good service and excellent food. Good wine options also. The lucca's famous dish is the tortelli lucchese that was great. We had insalata caprese with mozzarella di buffala as a starter than we both had the tortelli. Good espresso at the end .
I really recomend this place, either to have lunch or dinner and you will be very pleased if you go there.

Fantastic food and a nice atmosphere in the centre of Lucca. Has limited outside seating in a fairly narrow street. Generally try and eat here whenever we go to Lucca and have never been disappointed. On this occasion we attended as part of a group of 6 and everybody enjoyed their food, especially the venison ragout and the wild boar with polenta. Also has a nice wine list. If you are going for dinner it is a good idea to have a reservation.

While most reviews of this restaurant were positive, several of the negative ones made us concerned. After having eaten there last night, we are wondering what restaurant the naysayers visited! Our experience was delightful!

We shared a great appetizer of crudite (we were craving veggies since there don't seem to be many in a typical meal here) and fresh pecorino cheese topped with great olive oil and a delicious balsamic. My wife then had a delicious cacio e pepe pasta and I had the wild boar stew with polenta, which was also very tasty. All of this with a nice bottle of local red and water was just €51, which was easily the best value we encountered. Plus the service was attentive and cheerful and the ambience was lovely. What more could one want?

If you're ever in the delightful Tuscan city of Lucca - and I urge you to stay for longer than the traditional bus tour stop over if you are - check out this simple, honest Osteria on the street which rings one of the main attractions the Antiteatro. The decor and service are lovely, the simple dishes beautifully cooked with a terrific wine list. The perfect Tuscan dining experience.
