Disappointing, although team was friendly enough. Other tables with tour groups certainly were enjoying and loving it with special attention and food preparation which is why we had mixed feelings. The reviews suggested great wines and great service, but our experience was wine was average and more expensive than elsewhere and meat and cheese platter to accompany a few glasses... More

Tucked away on the route from Napoleon Piazza to the Duomo we stopped for lunch. Generous sandwiches on a choice of fresh bread with garnish. You could share a sandwich between two! Attentive service while watching the world go by.

Tried 3 wines as part of a wine tasting deal. The servers were very knowledgeable about the wines (in English as well-very impressive!), and all were from the Lucca area.

Stopped by for the wine tasting which included 5 different wines. Really good value for money and the staff knew their wines. Had a great time. Shame it was so empty but the rain and time of year kept people away.

I chose this restaurant as some of the more recent reviews were very complimentary about it and I knew where it was. It's probably better suited if you do want to go there for a wine tasting experience. We didn't. They didn't have much to choose from on the menu but what we had was very tasty, well cooked and...

We went to the superb Puccini concert in Piazza San Giovanni and spotted this place before we went in. Happily we reserved a table for a post concert meal. The restaurant is small. They specialise in local produce and wine and do a wine tasting selection. We stuck to pasta and local food which was very well cooked. the waiting... More

We called in here on a walk around the lovely walls of Lucca. Tasty and reasonable priced food and drinks. Good service. A super stop off for anyone looking for refreshment.

This was our first full day in Italy. After a difficult day of Planes, trains and automobiles we had our first experience tasting Italy. We stopped in for a cup of coffee and ended up purchasing wine. Andre was our host and guided us through a tour of local Italian wines. It was a great start to a great time... More
