I do think previous reviewers have been rather hard on this restaurant, or perhaps they were unlucky. Taken there by friends, we ate inside amid the wine bottles. The seafood platter to start with was very good indeed, as good as anything I've had elsewhere. The main courses were good, including a very succulent satimbocca. Prosecco and red wine reasonably priced. The service was attentive without being cloying. All in all a very good evening out for the price charged.

One of the best dinners we've had so far. Offered a complimentary eggplant appetizer; large wine selection, helpful staff.

Nice setting in a quiet back street closr to the centre. I wad seated outside on a pleasant May evening. Food is OK, best dish was the pasta with tomatoes, chilies and olives which I enjoyed. Starter (4 small specialities) and dessert (semifreddo) were both average, and main (rack of lamb) wase fine. Price is €10-15 for starters and pasta, €20-30 for mains, which is the most expensive I have seen in Lucca.

Our hotel recommended this place, which was a little hard to find, but had a nice outdoor seating area. Our dinner was perfectly fine, but the atmosphere was spoiled a bit by a large tour group of Americans who were seated next to us. This is a problem all over Italy, of course, but I'd opt for a place whose clientele is more local next time.
