We have eaten here three times now and it has always been a good time! The staff treat you like family and the local wine is lovely of course. They took very good care of 18 of us one evening for dinner! Order the sliced beef for two! You won't be disappointed.

Great local cuisine served perfectly. Our party of 6 was served an antipasto plate, 2 Piatti della nonna and 2 coniglio con polenta and a papardelle dish. The food was divine. Simply served and presented. Do yourself a favor and eat at this very Tuscan restaurant.

Bimbotto is hidden away in vorno, just south of lucca. I eat here everything we go to lucca. My husbands first Bimbotto experience was more than promised. Nicolo makes us very welcome and as a sommelier suggests superb wine. Warm characteristic atmosphere and a gastro extravaganza. Thank you Nicolo, alba and the rest of family and staff.

A great hidden treasure, with fabulous food, service and atmosphere. We ate here twice during our one week stay in Vorno, and between us probably tried most dishes. Everything was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Thank you! Hope to see you again some time soon! :)

Truly exceptional. The pizza and pasta dishes were exceptional. between the 9 of us in our family i believe we tried almost every dish. The pride they take in preparing their food, and house wide, really comes through. Its a must if you are even close to Vorno and Lucca.

The food was delicious. The steak was tender. The fried courgettes were a bit too fried. I have not seen this many pizza types on a menu for a long time. I think it must be the fresh tomatoes they use that made the pizza absolutely perfect. The toppings were very generous and well balanced. The deserts as seen in... More

This quant place is an easy walk from II Villanao B&B. Came highly recommended by the B&B hosts. Very nice, authenic food served in a great atmosphere. If sitting on the deck later in the evening, bring a jacket as the temperature drops off.

We visit this restaurant each time we are in the Lucca area. It is such a wonderful place with the best Italian food you can imagine. This time we were having our wedding nearby, and we actually brought a group of 25 people here. Even though we arrived very late, we were still served a wonderful meal with fantastic pizzas... More

Description
A "Bimbotto was the nickname of a great grandfather that gave rise to the name of the place. Already in the early '900 was present at the mall activities such as bars, food and tobacco (the old shops) and still today and in full swing. It should be noted that in the 60's 70's the place was famous for snacks or "ciancini" during the summer months, where the sausages, soups, cheeses and cakes "co 'beaks" were the local proposals. By 1998, precisely on June 21 the dining activity came back to life and the proposals in the paper recalls the typical dishes of the area.
