I didn't read the reviews on this place until after we sat down to eat. Then I read the reviews and got worried but I was determined not to let the reviews influence my experience. The place is cute as hell. The brick walls really made one feel as if they were in an old world restaurant. It was clean... More

We stumbled on this restaurant after a long day and we were ushered inside. I chose the fiorentina steak for my adult son and I was encouraged to choose the same for myself. So glad I did! A large t-bone of beef cut into slices was delivered on a hot stone. It cooked as I drank a glass of Sangiovese... More

This is the only restaurant in my whole trip to Italy that was a bad experience. I felt in a tourist trap the while time. Unfortunately, I hadn't read the other reviews beforehand. I ordered pasta carbonara and it was terrible, didn't feel the eggs or the bacon or the cheese, for that matter. The waiter suggested a bottle of... More

We stopped for an evening meal here, unfortunately, but will avaid in the future. Firstly we weren't allowed to order anything until we'd chosen which water we would like to have, which was odd in itself. The food that we eventually did manage to ask for was rubbish, and pretty small in portion size. We weren't offered any bread, which... More

Why? Why? Why didn't I look this place up on Trip Advisor BEFORE sitting down and ordering; it would have avoided a terrible terrible experience.... Avoid!!!! We were enjoying the lovely Lucca and chose this one as we saw the sticker "recommended on TripAdvisor". First, the food very very disappointing... my wife chose the meat ala plancha.... couldn't eat even... More

We have been travelling in Europe and Italy for a couple months now and went to Lucca for the day. We loved the city of Lucca but were so disappointed that we chose this restaurant for dinner. It was the worst meal we have had on our entire trip. My husband ordered pasta carbonara and I ordered lasagna with Bolognese... More

This is not a restaurant if you are visiting Lucca. Treated like a tourist and shoved into a back corner with other tourists while the main part of the restaurant was open for locals i think. The main waiter was a spiv and continually upsold. We watched other 'clients' who were also oversold for what they wanted. One couple were... More

We dined at L'oste Di Lucca and were rather disappointed by the pasta dishes. I was looking forward to tying the local fungi which was in season. My dish was bland, watery and barely warm.

Stopped here for lunch while in Lucca. The odd part of our visit was we were handed 2 different menu's, I mean not the same dishes listed, if the same dish was listed the description was not the same, and so on. Most of the time we order different dishes to try more than one thing, well that did not... More

We stopped here one busy Sunday lunchtime but still got served in good time with the sort of pizzas you can only dream about at home. So tasty.They also serve a good range of typical local cuisine which was flying out of the kitchen and looked very appetising.
