What a find for gluten free requirements! Even a GF bread roll was provided. All main meals were GF and many of the other courses as well. Delicious complimentary leek soup to start followed by an outstanding main course. (Succulent lamb cutlets cooked to perfection and tasty pork medallions were our choices and did not disappoint) This restaurant is of... More

We enjoyed one of the best meals of our Italian holiday here. The menu is a little bit different and the dishes well executed. In particular the scallops and the pork were superb. Very friendly and efficient service. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and there is the best garden in Lucca. We will be back!

Good food, reasonably priced, great service - going back. Next time eating in the garden area. Scallops, pumpkin soup, risotto with shrimp, lamb - all very good. Eleanora and staff doing a great job. Suggest reservations. Located just outside anfiteatro

I don't know why this restaurant is not higher than #16 on the Trip Advisor list. We have been coming to Lucca for 10 years, and have eaten at most restaurants. For lunch (or dinner) inside the wall, this is really the best in my opinion. There is no garden in Lucca that even comes close to the charm and... More

It has been 12 months since we have been here and this time we came for lunch. It was delightful. We love the surrounds and the ambience of this lovely restaurant, but most of all the food is elegantly presented and every morsel is delicious.

The restaurant is small but cosy, the staff extremely attentive & friendly and the ambiance perfect. The food was delicious, well presented and... More

If you go there at night in the summer, ask for a table in the garden. it is very romantic, but you need to reserve ! Situation is very close to the old city center. The food is really gastronomic, very fine tasty. Delicious and original with very reasonnable prices. People are very nice.

From our original experience we remembered being outside and feeling like we were in someone's backyard. While we found out that the restaurant had recently changed hands, the atmosphere and the food both lived up to our memory. We will not wait another 10 years before visiting.

A little alternative, a little more class than your normal trattoria and therefore maybe not typical italian. But: the food is good and staff really friendly and pro.
