Absolutely charming and attentive waitstaff coupled with delicious and well-prepared and presented food, this is a definite hit. The risotto with shrimp and zucchini was perfect as was the two meat dishes ordered by our fellow travelers.

Excellent food, exceptional service from the trio of young women managing the dining rooms. Very helpful with menu and wine choices. We ate there twice during our stay, in the garden (can't see it from the front door) and were equally impressed both times. Would recommend and will return!

Recommended to Canuleia by our Host, we were not disappointed. Wonderful garden setting, incredibly warm genuine service, and a good range of dishes from which to choose. Quality, fresh food, and a balanced wine list. Mixed clientele suggests wide appeal. Only suggestion: warm the serving/dinner plates. Definitely recommend.

Absolutely delicious food and incredible service. The staff members were very attentive and always smiling, we never waited long for any of our courses, and we even got a complimentary soup to start off our meal! My favorite part was the warm pineapple dessert, but the entire experience was fantastic. I'm definitely going back if I'm ever in Lucca again!

We ate sublimely. Everything was nice and the waitresses were extremely kind. We were afraid because we thought that we didn't have much time to eat, but we never waited to be served.

We ate lunch at Canuleia Tratroria and found it to be a great peaceful rest and escape from the crowds. The food was fresh and very delicious. The service was outstanding and with a smile. The setting is in a garden with large tents interconnected so no worry for pollen and other air born items to land on your table.

What a find for gluten free requirements! Even a GF bread roll was provided. All main meals were GF and many of the other courses as well. Delicious complimentary leek soup to start followed by an outstanding main course. (Succulent lamb cutlets cooked to perfection and tasty pork medallions were our choices and did not disappoint) This restaurant is of... More

We enjoyed one of the best meals of our Italian holiday here. The menu is a little bit different and the dishes well executed. In particular the scallops and the pork were superb. Very friendly and efficient service. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and there is the best garden in Lucca. We will be back!
