Beautiful place in the centre of Bagni di Lucca, caters for weddings et al, but also for normal customers. Has a fine terrasse on the back overlooking the river Lima. Careful service, inexpensive and delicious lunch menu with Tuscan specialties. Good house wine.

Located in a great spot overlooking the river, this restaurant oozed old world charm. We liked the atmosphere but the food was just "ok" for us. I ordered the seafood risotto which was a bit too salty for my taste. My husband did enjoy his lamb dish. The server did her best to to take care of us but she did look like she was by herself taking care of so many tables. We thought she did a good job. The best part was the lemon sorbetto which was truly amazing!

We were expecting a wonderful dining experience when we went here for dinner, as it had been recommended, but we left feeling very disappointed! The restaurant itself is lovely, very old world inside, we were on the terrace overlooking the river which we loved. It was not a busy night, but they seemed to have only one staff member to deal with everyone, so she was run off her feet and service was therefore very slow. She was very friendly though so I would forgive having to wait. The food however was very ordinary....we were expecting much more for the price, which was not cheap. Grilled seafood was very dry and tasteless, and veal the same, mushroom sauce quite bland. Would not go again!

Where to start ?
Despite Premier location in Bagni, never fails to disappoint.
Menu stuffy, boring, over-priced,
Waiters dressed like the Addams Family fail to get the food to you in a timely way- partly because the lovely terrace is narrow and badly organised. The kitchen is noisy, with banging and shouting, which can be clearly heard from the terrace does not help the ambiance.
To be fair and balanced, the view from the balcony is great, why not have a drink and enjoy the riverside vista, then eat elsewhere. The rooms inside are also potentially fab, but do not invite.
