Great spot! Came by way of a "locals" referral to eat here. Service, food and atmosphere all on point. We enjoyed each food item we ordered (the zucchini pudding with pecorino fondue was SO good). All pastas and desserts are house-made, daily. Make the effort,...More

It has it all: the ambience, the food, the good house wine... For me this was the best trattoria of all Italy. I highly recommend pasta, and an entrance with zucchini which was delightful. Thank you Gigi!

Had their weekly special- the pastas were homemade, fresh, perfectly seasoned. I think one of the best pastas on our trip so far. Would definitely recommend this place.

Great service and dinner! Amazing gnocchi dish, would highly recommend. Make sure you book a table as it can get quite busy!

A great choice when in Lucca if you are looking for traditional Italian food gluten free! They understood my concerns, the food was so delicious and the staff so friendly we returned a few nights later. Highly recommend

We were a family group of 19. This is a bit hidden, but the food is great. Pastas, chicken, beef, all great. The starters were also hearty and flavorful.

Absolutely nothing special about the food and service not great. Prosciutto dried out and not sliced thinly, pasta with seafood didn't seem fresh and deserts tasted like they came prepared from a supermarket. Definitely a disappointment after reading reviews.
