“Great Food & Prices”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

This is an out of the way place within the wall in Lucca. It's not really near the touristy areas but well worth eating at. When we ate there it seemed like there must be only 2 seating's per night. We were on the earlier one and I think there was only 1 or 2 people to serve all the tables which slowed things down some, but it was still a good experience. The price was seemed much less than we were accustomed to paying during our trip.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

3 of us had dinner last night. Not being too hungry, we ordered an appetizer, soups & a risotto dish. The place was packed and the meat dishes that were being served to others looked so good, we went back today for lunch on the patio. We ordered the pork roast, lamb chops & filet steak slices, along w grilled veggies & roasted potatoes. All were outstanding. My friend will be going back again tomorrow for lamb chops. The prices were reasonable & the house wine a deal! The only dish we didn't think was outstanding was the risotto w/sausage - it was a little running. Wish we would have found this little gem earlier!

“Tasting menu a great value!”
Reviewed 20 October 2011

If you want a place outside of the tourist zone, I recommend this place. The garden out back is secluded and a lovely setting to enjoyable a leisurely paced meal. The service is very pleasant and competent, albeit a bit slow. The 'tasting menu' - an antipasto, first and second course, dessert, water and plentiful wine - is a fabulous value at €25, and a great way to control your dinner bill. To ensure a table in the garden, a reservation is recommended. We liked this place so much we returned for a second night and were not disappointed. Go and enjoy!

“Lovely courtyard, good food”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

The apartment we stayed at in Lucca was direclty above this restaurant, so we went there on our first night, inspired by the TA reviews (3rd when we looked). The courtyard dining area was lovely (if a little noisy in the evenings - thinks of the residents folks!). The food was good but not exceptional, but reasonably priced (for Lucca). The service was very triendly and, had there not been so many other places to try, we would probably have gone back.

“Good choice”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

We sat in the outside patio area,under large canopies.
The food choice was good and had a number of choices for vegeterians,We eat here twice and on both occassions were impreseed with the service ,food quality and value.
The set menu is very good value as it also includes 1/2 bottle of wine ,water and coffee for 25 Euros.
This is a good choice in a city with many restaurants.
