Wish I had read TA before making the mistake of an evening stop at "Old Charlie" The service is at best poor. Our waitress was really miserable and not interested. If you do have to eat here (like because all of Lucca's other restaurants are closed because of plague) then do have the bruscetta which was actually pretty good! The rest of the food was of small portion and uninspiring. Definitely not recommended!

Aims to attract the international visitor with its name and decor. The waitress was disinterested and the food passable. The roast veal was wafer thin and sparse. 6 euro for a glass of local beer. Not recommended.

We stopped at this restaurant and enjoyed lunch, it is in a lovely setting in the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro. We shared a pizza, I liked the beer called Moretti Rossa, its quite strong, and dark. the price was very reasonable. Lucca is a great place to visit, narrow streets to explore and towers to climb.

This place is located in the Anfiteatro. Lunch was good, the house wine was very good and the service was prompt and friendly (the place was not busy).

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.
