We dropped by and were lucky enough to be offered a table. The food and ambience were both excellent. My wife and I highly recommend this fine old Lucca restaurant.

An amazing pre fixed dinner with all the champagne and wine you can drink. Our service and food was outstanding. Been here many times in the summer and this is our first meal here in the winter. Yum!

Anyone coming here will find it hard to be disappointed. Food, wine, and service is excellent. My girlfriend and I were here for lunch. Little tip, if you want something slightly different for dessert try the trifle. It is a little bit on the alcoholic side - as it is doused in orange liquor - but it is excellent. Hope... More

Thankfully we were there ahead of the "Comics and Games" event which promised to create a human crush during the coming week The elegantly dressed waiters were gracious and the food was cooked to perfection -- just what I expect in Italy...
