Yes, you can tell a good chef is at work by how interesting dishes and combinations of flavours are, with original ideas popping up here and there through the dinner. We enjoyed it thoroughly, if being there on a Sunday evening among holidays likely got us slightly less fresh fish than otherwise. Baby sardines tempura, some nigiri - those with... More

Excellent food, very well presented. Good portions too. We were curious to try Misaki 's cuisine, after seeing him on Top Chef Italy. He lived up to our expectations! Bravo!

We stumbled upon this restaurant at lunchtime and were very pleased we found it. Delicious food that was presented in a very appealing manner with small surprises here and there. Beautiful setting with views of the Tuscan countryside. We aim to return before our week's holiday is over!

A surprising find on a Tuscan hillside near Lucca! A talented Japanese chef (ex architect) who has taken the usual top quality Tuscan produce and added flavours of Asia that enhance and surprise you. Had a wonderful dinner there a few nights ago for friends from all over the world who all loved not only the atmosphere, sitting out under... More

What to say? A corner of classical but eventually unorthodox cuisine with asian influence... How would you define that??? In regards to taste, very good! We had luck we were there during Lucca Comics too, and to celebrate that the Japanese chef prepared Ramens: something that you have to try to understand how good they are. Just that dish was...

What a surprise to find this excellent restaurant right on our doorstep. I loved the fusion of Asian and Italian food and everything was beautifully presented too. We shared the tempura vegetables and fish, and that was a good thing too, as the portion was very generous. I then had the raw and seared scallops for starters, which had orange... More

We were stopping at the attached Relais Del Lago hotel for 4 nights and had dinner here once. The staff were really friendly and helpful, but the best thing was the food - absolutely superb, best meal of a 10 day trip to Tuscany. Excellent range of dishes, prepared and presented beautifully. Not cheap, but not bad for Tuscany either.... More

My girlfriend and i were staying at the attached Relais. Although run separately the restaurant is amazing. A beautiful setting with amazing food. Slightly different from the traditional Tuscan food we sampled but this made for an interesting and incredible experience. Everything we ate was delicious and the portions perfect. This is a high end restaurant but we felt the... More

A very undesired Japano-Italian fusion for people who lived 10+ years in Japan coming to enjoy local Italian food. We would never choose the place, but we were hungry, it was too late, and we just stayed in the same hotel. Very poor balance of spices and salt. Could finish none of the dishes, and skipped the dessert. Good service... More
