What a delightful meal! Actually, it was our best meal during our entire two week trip in Italy. The pea soup with cuddle fish was so refreshing. The tomato soup with mozzarella was beautifully done. Then, the wine, produced locally was one of our favorites during the trip. Complementary sherbet topped off our evening!

Everything perfect. Kitchen, wine, service. And most of all Pasquale himself that is the key differentior from all other restaurants in Lucca.

Best food experience ever in Lucca ! Pasqualino once again was the perfect host and the food and wine was not only fantastic but reasonably priced. . This was our third visit in as many years and we dined there each night enjoying the social interaction of host, staff and patrons. A Lucca experience not to be missed. Make certain you book !

This is one of those wonderful places where you just slide in and the food is kind of happening to you. The service was wonderful, just enough entertaining, but not intrusive. We felt at home and welcomed. Service as well as the restaurant owner absolutely knew their craft and domain.

We got very good wine recommendations, even an offered bottle as a gift. And about the food: Take whatever you feel like, it all was delicious.

We booked well in advance because we had read the review and were only staying in Lucca for one night. This was easy to do as my email was answered very quickly. It was definitely fully booked the night we were there. We had the most delicious meal. My husband thinks it was the best steak he has ever had and I had the tuna which was divine! The one downside for us was that only Pasquale can bring you wine, so when the restaurant is full and he is very busy it is difficult to get a glass/bottle. Understandably he likes to spend time with his customers but it means others get slightly neglected. We asked the waitress for some wine with our dessert, but by the time Pasquale came to us we had eaten it. He did bring us two complimentary desserts and a glass of wine to go with them. We had to wait about 45 mins for the bill which it seemed only Pasquale could bring to us. We had to ask twice. They were very busy when we were there but I imagine that is every night. Perhaps he could train another sommelier because we felt we would have spent more money, we just weren't able to! Pasquale was apologetic though, and he clearly loves talking to his customers.
