The steak was amazing- gentlemen's cut plus asparagus ravioli and meat terdelli both wonderful - as in any good Italian restaurant- don't get in a hurry...

Dear Kitty, we are sorry that you had an unsatisfying dinner. Our seafood and fish is every day fresh - the gratinated seafood platter is one of the favourite dishes of our clients! Has a big success we can tell. We do not understand unfortunately...More

Very nice restaurant in the center of Lucca. Quite place, good service. Food is typical (very good the appetizer called : caprese d’autunno) Restaurant is small and ‘warm’, so it is perfect for a lovely dinner for 2.

We can’t say enough good things about Osteria Tosca. We went three days in a row for lunch! My friend said salad with the buffalo mozzarella is “what cheese tastes like in heaven”. The tomatoes were so red and juicy! Perhaps a little light on...More

Located near the Puccini museum in a quiet plazza, off the busy streets. Excellent food, the best sea bream ever taste. All the dishes were well presented. Small restaurant with limited number of tables (6) for outside eating. The service was excellent. My steak was over cooked, they quickly took my plate and prepared me another steak which was delicious. Would definitely recommend this place to others and go again.
