My traveling colleague and I happened upon Ristorante Celide when we checked into the hotel next door. Luckily, they had room for us to enjoy a late lunch. The menu is limited, but both items we ordered were fabulous. Give it a try if you are in Lucca!!

Had lunch here and can't recommend it highly enough. Full of Italian customers and the menu was in Italian. We were the only Americans. That's always a good sign that the food is going to be authentic. Staff was happy to help us with recommendations. We both had the risotto and it was AMAZING. You have to have this. We... More

Situated just outside the walls across a busy road and about 400m from Porta Elisa you will find one of the best fish and seafood restaurants in Lucca. Superbly cooked and presented dishes will delight any lover of seafood. The antipasto of tartare of 5 different fish would satisfy the most discerning of Japanese. Main courses of Cod and Turbot...

This is a really good seafood restaurant... The salt cooked sea bass was skilfully filleted at the table as was the turbot. Both were excellent. The waitress was very helpful in translating the menu as it is in Italian only. Her manner was business like, which may come over as a tad cold... but a smile and a thank you... More

We were a party of three and we have been able to talk of our business while perfectly assisted by very polite and careful restorant people. Quality of food was excellent, including not cooked seafood and this is very is difficult to find. Price was good.

Since last April I am often in Lucca for the purpose of work and I use to have dinner chez Celide once a week. Nice location, often crowded, remember to reserve in advance. Amazing fish quality, excellent presentation as well the taste. Essential wine list reasonably priced. The service is careful, friendly and efficient. Undoubtedly to be recommended.
