“Excellent”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Wonderful food with friendly service. Sitting on the terrace overlooking the river is a must. I particularly enjoyed the seafood risotto.

“For weddings and for everyday”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

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.

“It was just ok for me”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

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!

“Very disappointing!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

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!
