We were a large group of 30 people, and had a set menu, with not much interest. Ravioli to start, and a thin "wienerschnitzel" with pommes frites, followed by industrial icecream. Not one of the memorable Italian meals ...

Called in here on our first night in Lucca because we arrived late and it was just around the corner from our apartment. We had a pizza to share a half litre of house red wine and a medium/pint of beer and both were excellent and then my wife had the pistachio gelato all for 20 euro not a bad... More

We came here three times in a fortnight and really enjoyed everything- pasta, meat, fish, vegetables and the great value antipasto buffet.

I've now have had a few meals at this Pizzeria Ristorante , the food is exquisite , you hardly see any tourists which is always a good sign to see where the locals eat . My first choice for food , house wine is also very palatable . Excellent value for money with friendly staff . Highly recommend it .

We walked to this restaurant from the Eurostars Toscana hotel. I had a salad and pizza while my husband had pasta and chicken. The salad was just lettuce - very plain. The pizza was good as was the pasta dish. The chicken was just OK. Lots of locals were picking up pizzas to go. Servers spoke english and service was... More

We stopped here after returning from an all day drive through Chianti (we stayed in Lucca). The ristorante seemed to have almost all local customers. Our waiter spoke English well. The service was excellent, the value was excellent as well. I had the pesto which I thought was good. My wife had a seafood dish that escapes my memory but... More

My family have eaten at this wonderful ristorante many times since 2003. Friendly family owned bar and restaurant where many ovals go for an ice cream, a drink or a meal. Good food at great prices with one of the most fantastic antipasti choices I have seen. We will be back Buon Appettito

I often go to this place. It makes both bar from the restaurant. The portions are generous, the service is fast and courteous. Excellent value for money. Good especially the pizzas that are large and well-topped. The service is also to take away. Seats comfortable and spacious with sofas.

The restaurant is popular among locals and serves homefood. You will not leave this place hungry as the plates are huge. Tasty and affordable compared to restautant within the city walls.

This was a nice surprise in our visit to Lucca. We decided to try this place at the suggestion of our hotel manager. Our travel party was 3 adults and 2 children. Our trip was in part to reconnect with our family heritage. I could not believe how authentic and true to the culinary history of the region the food... More
