We had the multi course 30 Euro prix Fix for dinner, which was great. Many versions of seafood and local vegies, everything tasting fresh and delicious. Service was very attentive and our waitress spoke perfect English. Large selections of wines especially from Sicily. Will return.

Is the Tasting Menu (30Euro) enough for two people or should each person order it. Thanks. Will be in Lucca in two days. GlenLivet

The tasting menu is for each person. It's a must. I return to Lucca 3 times a year and make La Norma my first stop
