“Fine dining Italian style”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

There's a good chef at work here! This was the smartest dinner of our trip and it was slightly more expensive than some of the other choices, but well worth it. Tucked away just off one of the main streets, this restaurant is easy enough to find but you need to be looking for it. Pleasant patio area and a charming interior, impeccable service and a good range of wines. All of our food choices met with approval, of particular note was a seafood starter with the softest squid you can imagine - not a hint of rubber! The complimentary amuse bouche and chocolates to end the meal were nice touches.

“Favourite restaurant in Lucca”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Having just returned to Lucca for the first time in three years we headed straight for All' Olivo, we were not disappointed, the food and service was as good as ever! Ok it's not the cheapest restaurant you could dine in, but you definitely get what you pay for, and that is superb food, an excellent wine list and lovely surroundings! We will definitely be back as soon as we can make it, definitely quicker than the last time, thank you all at All' Olivo keep up the good work!!

“Great food and great service”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Went last night with my girlfriend. They hardly spoke English, but we got there especially as I have a wheat allergy. Fantastic service through out and was served freshly baked gluten free rolls to start. We went for a Primi and Secondi meal, pasta with sweet bacon and courgettes to start which was gorgeous. We then ordered a T-Bone steak for 2 which was the highlight of the evening. To finish off we were brought a lovely selection of brittle/biscotti/white chocolate nibbles which topped off a perfect evening. We were too full for dessert. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here, but you'll need to know a few Italian phrases to get you through. Price wise, it's on the pricier end of Lucca dining, but was worth it.

“Exceptional seafood platter”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

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.

Reviewed 1 June 2014

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