We ate here 3 times during our 1 week stay in the Lucca area. The menu was varied, the food quality was excellent and the prices were very good. It was a very relaxing experience in a plaza which was typically Italy

This restautsnt sits in a famous piazza and has a charming ambience. The tables outside overlook the piazza. When I went there were musicians playing in the square. Pasta was very good. A wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

Wonderful location on the piazza where we could watch the world pass by. Food however did not live up to expectations- a starter of bruschetta was essentially a mini pizza (think tomato sauce and grilled cheese). Pizza itself was okay, side salad was lack-lustre. Service...More
