exceptional friendly stuff, very good, high quality food. maybe not the fastest serving on the earth, so the bored, sour guests may not enjoy it. but anyone else will.

This is our favourite restaurant inside the walls. To celebrate a birthday or event this place is always in our top 5 of options. Pretty inside. Quite modern. Lobster roles!

We spent an evening at this restaurant and my expectations were high - reviews were great and it looked fab! However, the waiter forgot my wine twice and seemed really busy flirting with the two tables of ladies in the restaurant. My husband ordered a...More

The design of the bar detoured us from the restaurant that we decided to have dinner. First impression was great: super friendly staff, cool design, interesting menu. But after that everything collapsed: i asked for a Gin Mare tonic (best Spanish gin distilled from olives,...More

Our restaurant, in Lucca historic city center, was born from two previous activities: Vineria i Santi, a cosy and quite winery with small cuisine and Emporio del sale, enogastronomic shop with a strong vocation for aperitifs. Our cuisine suggests a careful, intimate, stimulating choice, tending to excite our guests' palates, sometimes even with a minimal of gambling. Menu is elaborated and designed with a certain frequency, depending on products' seasonality, and let us tell it, in order to our chefs' creativity. Wine list is particularly well-kept, selected to be the ideal accompaniment to what the kitchen currently suggests. Here you could find a special ambience, absorbed in Via dell'Anfiteatro, the street that surrounds the homonymous square, surely the best known in our city, where we've tried to create a balance between past and present, between typicity and internationality, keeping on simple arrangements and characteristic flavors, where our staff will welcome you with sympathy and professional approach and will guide you through the most congenial food and wine proposal.
