Description: What a romantic place Antica Osteria di Meati! Here you can breathe the history of this place, where many years ago contrymen with their horses stopped to eat and relax, looking at the beatifull hills called " Colline Lucchesi ". Even now you can find the same welcome. Not far from the medieval Walls of Lucca, you'll find thia antique place, full of green, where you can taste dishes of Lucca tradition. We are in " Osterie d'Italia" SLOOFOOD Editore

This place was walking distance from the villa we were staying and came recommended by the owner. A very nice atmosphere, lots of locals, people of all ages, relaxed atmosphere. Service is very attentive, good English spoken. Menu is classic Tuscany, tagliata con fungi porcini, wild boar, rabbit, the lot. Lots of vegetables from their own garden, some interesting salads. We went twice and had a lovely time there.

This place is very popular at the weekends with locals but much quieter in the week. The food to good hearty Italian but limited and not the usual tourist fair. Good value for money.

Visited with a large group of friends, we had a fantastice time, great food. There is a fine selection of wines if the house wine is not to your taste. If you are in Lucca, visit Meati.

This osteria was within walking distance of our holiday villa, so a great place to eat out! We arrived too early - one review had said it was open from 6.30, so we rolled up at 7.30 only to find it didn't really open for business til 8pm. However the waitress was really helpful, showed us to a table and checked with the kitchen that it was ok to take our order early - and it was! So full marks for being flexible! We had a lovely chat with lady who was, think, the owner. The menu was varied - my husband really enjoyed his ravioli with white bolognese sauce. I really enjoyed my main course of beef with porcini mushrooms. Although it was a Thursday evening, there were quite a few couples in the restaurant, and most seemed to be locals, which I always think is good. Worth a visit if you are staying nearby.

A local recommended this as a place for an evening meal and we were certainly not disappointed. The meals are traditional and a great use is made of locally available and seasonal products. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and would recommend the restaurant for anyone wanting to get away from the tourist trail.
