Not too bad in Australian means this was a pretty good place- but nothing to write home about- didn't set any benchmarks or break over the adequate barrier. The 4 of us had the set menu at Euro 20 and drinks- the Amuse Bouche really...More

The four of us wanted a traditional lunch which is what we got. Two soups were excellent and house wine good. Service a bit erratic but overall good value.

We had lunch here last week-end. The set menu is very reasonably priced at €20 each but unfortunately the service was very poor (slow, muddled, no obvious leader) and the food good to awful. Some of the food was good - in particular the local...More

This is an interesting little restaurant. The entry is via small shop selling coffees/cigarettes/confectionery and drinks. Through the back is one room for dining, then off to the left, another larger room for dining. So, far so good...... The menu was quite extensive, which I...More

We were staying in an Air BnB and our host recommended this place as the best genuine pizzeria in town. He wasn't wrong. Nothing was too much trouble. I ordered an individually designed calzone which was huge and delicious. The panacotta was superb. The waiter...More

Nothing fancy. Just a simple, clean restaurant with good food, pizza and wine that's all modestly priced. A great location that's only a 10 minute walk to the center of the old city.

Have been coming to lucca for many years and this restaurant is always a good stop. It has always been a favourite of locals especially single retirees who seem to be treated with kindness. I always have a pizza and again it was very good....More

Casual but varied menu with many sophisticated surprises. Here is an opportunity to experience Florentine steak and slow cooked wild boar completely devoid of pretentiousness.

In the late 1895s, Mr. Guidotti's genius transformed the stables of Villa Bottini in a Drugstore. Since then, there have been plenty of people and illustrious lucchesi, like the Puccini and Luporini masters. Today, more than one hundred years later, the restaurant preserves its original decor intact and transmits the spirit of the time, the scents and the taste of the lucchese tradition. For over 10 years we have also a pizzeria with a wood oven and a kitchen where we prepare typical "Lucchesi" dishes, homemade pasta, t-bone Fiorentina steaks, tastes of local salami and special cheeses.
