Cozy little place with excellent pizza! The place was full of tourist though later in the evening locals began to fill the place and the pizzas were flowing out of the kitchen!! A must repeat!! Small dining room so would suggest reservations to ensure you get a table!!

Arrived in Lucca late, looking for some food. Stumbled accross this typically italian. Obviously a place for locals. Was really busy and the food and wine was amazing. Wasnt in the mood for steak but will be definitely be going back . A must for meat lovers. The waitress was amazing loved the atmosphere. Excellent value for money.

We always enjoy Lucca. The food is very good everyplace you go. This stands out above the others. What was better bread or steak? I can't decide.

Came here twice, Feb 6th and the 8th for evening meals and was treated to meals of outstanding quality, price, and service. Good house wines too, with a menu that is both expansive and interesting. The pizza's are superb, and the beef stew was fantastic and the place rocks when it gets fuller as the evening goes on. Give this... More

We went for dinner. One of the best dinner ever. Starting with antipasti with focaccia (don't miss the crostino with salsiccia fresca and the affettati misti) than we had the tordelli (a sort of ravioli, but trust me if I tell you that is HEAVEN!), tagliata and another meat without bone that I can't remember the name. For sure everything... More

Attracted there in passing by the delicious aroma of fresh pizza. We were not disappointed. Started with soup, minestrone and zuppa farro (bean), followed by a large pizza,(rocket and parmigiana). Large is not an accurate description, enormous would be more accurate, in fairness the waiter did try and warn us. It was amazing value at only 15 euros and we... More

Here you feel like you are in someone's home. We had pizza and pasta. I had the salami pasta and you know how sometimes you eat a pasta that just tastes perfect and you wonder how on earth anyone can make a pasta that seems so simple yet has such amazing silky texture and flavour? Well this is it. The... More

We visited the restaurant at the end of our Tuscan holiday, this restaurant positions itself as mainly a steak restaurant so we were expecting good things. On arriving at the restaurant there was no greeting and we found our way to a female waitress who showed us to a table in the corner of the room, no one in there... More
