Amazing food! Peaceful courtyard. Friendly staff. What more could you want while visiting a beautiful Italian village?! Our favorite lunch stop on our countrywide tour. Now, if they would only open one just like it in the Midwest U.S.A. :)

Nice little cafe in the middle of Lucca. Good flavorful food with good selection of salads, pizza and pasta. Prices are fair considering location. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Friendly service. Pasta dishes (ravioli and tortelli) were fresh and flavorful. Pork with spicy honey was tender and delicious. House wines both red and white were also good. Had the chocolate pudding for dessert-- so good! Overall great experience, would highly recommend!

The staff is very friendly and the service is excellent. I've eaten there twice, and both dishes that I've had, the Pork Loin with Honey Sauce, and the Grilled Sliced Beef, were excellent. The atmosphere, both inside and in their courtyard is very nice.

We went here based on TA reviews and that it was open before 7 as we have not converted to the Italian dinner plan of eating after 7:30 pm. Both pasta dishes we had were average, but the Onion side dish was worth the visit!

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. However, the ravioli was a bit tough and certainly not fresh. We had the pork for our main meal which was not much better. We came away not very impressed with the food.

This restaurant is located off Via della Fratta. You need to walk through the restaurant to access the courtyard. There are 4 very large marquee umbrellas that shade you from the afternoon sun. We just had the Insalatone (large salad with tuna). A nice setting....More
