We choose the 5 course diner, but it ended in a 8 course (3 courses desserts). The ravioli is to die for, simple but absolutely cooked to the perfection! The risotto on the other end was nearly not eatable. What is it that risotto is...More

I hate writing bad reviews. In fact I think this is a first. I normally just let it go. This is a small room in an art gallery and consequently feels odd from the start. A bit cold and lacks atmosphere. The girl serving is...More

Location: Odd, unmarked in a museum or gallery of some sort. One must enter the building and ask if the restaurant is there. Setting: Harsh fluorescent lighting in a small space reminiscent of an elementary schoolroom. Hardly intimate. Some laminate missing from one furniture piece....More

Small, intimate, sublime dishes, impeccably perfect personnel and unlimited chef. "Primitive steak", red cabbage reduced to the drop of essence. Felt like Alice in Wonderland - excited, sometimes scared ;-) but all the time eager for more. Perfect end of romantic day in Lukka

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at L'Imbuto. The food is very high end cooking, with some true standout dishes. The setting is the museum, we were perfectly happy with this, but perhaps not for everyone. Service was friendly. L'Imbuto only serves tasting menus, you can choose...More

Technically brilliant food and all but one of the "seven" course tasting menu hit the spot on taste. I say "seven" because it was more like ten! The beef tartare was quite simply the best ever and the ravioli stuffed with olive oil and Parmesan...More
