The restaurant has a lovely appearance with old curved ceilings and open brick work which made for a warm, cosy feeling. The staff were helpful & friendly, & the food traditional, local & honest. There is nothing fancy about this place & it appears popular with the locals which is always a good sign. The food was a little on... More

Osteria Baralla was suggested to me by a local, so on a cold night in January, in a ghost night in Lucca, we went to find the place amongst many closed places in central Lucca. We managed to find Baralla and entered the cosy place which offered us a shelter from the cold outside. Baralla seems to be an old... More

We went there with a bunch of friends - 12 of us. We order different meals and black & white house vine, so we can try as many as possible! Everything was very, very tasty. We only baited a little longer for main course, but in place such this you always get lot of starters - some of them you... More

As food critic I’ve been asked to visit the restaurant BARALLA. My reviews are impartial regardless who pays for my bill. RESTAURANT Baralla is a typical italian trattoria with plenty of history behind it. It offers local cuisine and traditional recipes from Lucca. FOOD Artichoke was strongly present in the menu and we had two starters: Artichokes in asiago (Cheese)... More

My wife and I have enjoyed many wonderful meals in this charming restaurant, conveniently located just north of Piazza Anfiteatro. I recommend making a reservation because it is frequently booked up. Only last week we enjoyed a terrific meal beginning with baked artichokes and asiago cheese, followed by beef stew and polenta for me and tagliate with artichokes for her.... More

Lovely vaulted room, tremendous local dishes and a great local wine list. We had dinner and immediately booked to come back again a couple of nights' later.

We had come to this restaurant four years ago while visiting Lucca and we loved it. This time, we came back twice. The food is fabulous, but the friendly staff are what really makes it so lovely to visit. It was my husband's 70th birthday, so we had made a reservation for our friends and ourselves. I had tried to... More

If you enjoy delicious traditional Tuscan cuisine in an unpretentious but attractive brick ambiance without 6 sychophants in tuxedos hovering over you, then Osteria Baralla is your choice. In complete relaxation you can discover exciting new tastes from the local area as you savor well-prepared fare and complimentary drink. All at a very reasonable price.

Popular place with traditional food. Lots of customers and cosy, but the food is not good at all. Went twice hoping it would improve, but no. Disappointing!

The food was good but make sure you order your steak medium well if you want it pink because it might come to you raw and bloody which was the way it came to us. They never came to check if everything was OK with the meal and my husband ended up eating my meal. After finished they came to... More
