“I was totally ignored”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Have no idea if the food here is good or not, because I never got to order any. Came in, sat down; the place was fairly full but not terribly so. There were waiters around, fairly busy, but not once did they smile or say just a minute or anything, just ignored me. I waited about fifteen or twenty minutes, then walked out. This is unusual in Lucca, and there's really no excuse for it.

“Marvelous experience”
Reviewed April 27, 2011

I've been a week ago in tuscany, and visiting Lucca i found this small, old pub, english style in the anfitheatre square, we decided to stop and eat something, my gf took a huge pizza made with buffalo mozzarella, very very tasty, and i got a delicious veal with porcini mushrooms, and you know, if you 've been in Italy you must try the local porcini mushrooms, if'll be there again, surely i'll visit good old charlie...

“Stay away”
Reviewed April 23, 2011

50 minutes to get a Pizza al Funghi. Rude and peremptory service and even more rude and arrogant owner. There are many nice plaes in Lucca where you will be served well. This is not one of them

“impossible!”
Reviewed October 12, 2010

The waiters are very rude. The owner is an arrogant. Poor food quality. They charged us more things in the ticket! The waitress was eating while she was in service...
