Having been intrigued by the story that Collodion was the 'birthplace' of Pinocchio we drove up the hill to the town, not far from Lucca. After a wander round and a visit to the Butterfly House, we came across this restaurant. An attractive villa painted yellow with a pleasant garden and shaded tables outside. There was an 'a la carte'... More

Nothing special. Just regular plates, pasta carbonara with too much salt, fish and fries. Pick something else if you can.

Thank you for your review. Did you forget to write that you were very RUDE with our staff, who tried to meet all your requests. We forget Salsa Bernese anyway you don't ask for it. We ask you to inform for how a Florentine T bone steak is made (with filets), and we hold also there to remind you that... More

One waiter on the premises and he took forever. Really poor and boring food costing way, way too much. The millions of ants crawling all around our feet didn't exactly help either. Stay away!

We ate here on a weeknight and it was pretty quiet. We had our two young kids and were given the best table in the restaurant (rare) and overlooked the incredible villa gardens! Truly spectacular. The food was excellent and well priced. A high end cuisine menu but they made basic kid friendly meals for our kids on request. At... More

This restaurant it’s a villa with large graders and statues. Even I visit it during winter we had our dinner inside with unique view in the gardens. The food was traditional Italian and fantastic. I suppose that during spring the feeling will be absolutely fantastic having your dinner in the flower gardens.

The restaurant is a great combination of modern style and a classic building. The friendly staff gave us a warm welcome and a great wine advise. All this gave us high expectations of the food. The ambitious plates did not meet the expectations. It was ok, but a little bit too complicated. The starter with rabbit had little flavor to... More

First of all this restaurant overlooks the terraced gardens of the Villa Garzoni absolutely beautiful! Collodi is a charming little town with great views. We have been to this restaurant twice and each time the food was great and the service even better. The manager speaks English and is warm and welcoming. The mushroom soufflé appetizer was lovely.

Italy is Italy and France is France. Italy is famous for its simple, but tasteful food, France on the other hand is gourmet land - unexpected combination of tastes that brings something new to the food you know well. When Italy is trying to be France it does not end in a perfect way. This restaurant is a perfect example... More

So pleased that me and my wife decided to trust the reviews trying this amazing restaurant beautifully set into the Collodi Park. In a elegant though relaxed atmosphere here you could actually get amazing food genuinely homemade by a young but experienced talented chef, while the service is second to none thanks to the lovely expertise charm of Irene.
