We were in Lucca for comics & games also with friends and we had a quick lunch here. The kids had a nice kids menu. We all had excellent pappardelle with a yummy wild boar sauce. Recommended!!

Our lunch here was one of our better meals in Lucca. The food was very tasty and interesting; I especially enjoyed the chestnut-based dishes. The terrace was pleasant at lunchtime, and the service was friendly and attentive. Would recommend it.

On a recent vacation we ended up in Lucca on our 25th anniversary and having gotten a recommendation from someone at the B&B we were staying at we ended up here for what was one of the highlights of our two weeks in Europe. The restaurant is downstairs in a modernized space that used to be a storage space of... More

When we were recommended this place by our hosts at a local B and B, we were greeted by friendly staff and the owner! The staff was attentive, even providing blankets as we were eating outside on a rainy night!! The food was delicious!!

It was my wife's birthday/ We were in Lucca two years ago and ate in this restaurant. We were so impressed then that we decided to go there for her birthday dinner and it was just as good. The only difference this time was that we ate outside. If the weather is in any way adverse the dining rooms inside... More

I ordered Risotto at this restaurant and was really disappointed. The consistency was not right and the taste was plain. I have made many risottos in my time and I know how they should taste. I seems that some of the elements of the ingredients were missing. I am sure the Chef knows how to create the perfect risotto, but... More

We dined here on our last night in Lucca, and had the best meal of our trip so far. Food was delicious, (I had the rabbit - just terrific), wine was good, service attentive, helpful and friendly. And the price was reasonable too. Thoroughly recommended.

We were recommended this restaurant by our guest house owner. The service was very kind and friendly. We arrived without reservation and we chose to sit outside as it was a cool evening. We ordered from the specials, one truffle pasta and one salmon dish which was both very delicious.

Friendly staff, more upmarket presentation and choices compared to the typical Italian fare, open for lunch and dinner. Good value, good quality in a side street in an old palazzo and you can sit inside or out at your preference, with rugs outside if you prefer the open air

We ate outside and the weather was perfect. Yes, there were a few cars that went by, but we didn't mind. We had the delicious panzanella salad, ravioli, soup and swordfish salad- all amazing. Great service!
