Everything about this restaurant is perfect. Pasquale puts so much effort into taking care of his customers personally. Our group of 5 (Pasquale labeled us "The Five Musketeers") booked a table for a Friday night (you must book in advance, it fills up quickly). We loved the service, the wine, and the food so much, that we decided to reserve for the following night as well. The restaurant was already booked up, but Pasquale kindly made room for our group so we could dine there again. It's impossible to go wrong with any item on the menu, and Pasquale's wine recommendations were top-notch. You cannot go to Lucca without coming here- you won't regret it!

Thank you Pasquale, for providing us with the best dining experience imaginable!

We have a fantastic meal and Pasquale was great with the wine recommendation. We went to the restaurant earlier in the day when we were exploring the city to see where it was located. Pasquale saw us looking inside and he opened the gate and allowed us to choose our table for our reservation later in the evening. The food was fantastic (I had lemon pasta with shrimp) and the wine recommendation was great and priced very well. We ended up staying at the restaurant until it closed. Hopefully Pasquale didn't mind. We ordered more wine to share with a Pasquale regular Mario sitting at the next table, and a single traveler joined us at our table. Such a fun experience and memory from Lucca!

We so enjoyed our dinner at Pasquale. Of. Purse, the best part of dinner was Pasquale himself. As a master of wine, he made sure every guests needs were met with great wines poured at all tables. He wondered personality made the room shine.
Our dinner included Beef Carpaccio, Steak Tartare, seared Tuna with Caponata and stuffed Rabbit.
As the Osteria is small, it is highly recommended that you make a dinner reservation to make sure you can secure a table.
If you are in Lucca, make this a sure stop for dinner with great wines!

Charming place. Pasquale, the owner, makes you feel right at home. He is a sommelier level 2, and personally selected wine for us. It was perfect. Only seats about 30 so you definitely need a reservation. The food is off the charts, flavor, freshness, and culinary flair. I had the veal, best I've had anywhere worldwide. Mushroom ravioli was perfect al dente, full of flavor. Scallops fresh as they can be. The panna cotta dessert, with berries was scrumptious.

My husband and I first visited Pasquale in 2018 when we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary, we came back a year later, again celebrating our 2nd anniversary in Lucca and chose to dine at Pasquale's again as our first experience was so memorable. Can i just say that you will be a fool if you come to Lucca and do not eat here. Pasquale is the most humble, generous and helpful restaurateur, as successful as he is he always takes time to meet and spend a little time with each customer, my experience with Pasquale has been second to none, he provided us with such a memorable and special 2nd anniversary, and i really cannot thank him enough for making us feel special once again. The food was absolutely incredible, cooked to perfection, and we drank beautiful red wine reccomended by the man himself! Yes we will be back! (As often as we can make it to Lucca) and yes we recommend this restaurant whole heartedly!
10/10 for Osteria da Pasquale!
