We had an amazing dinner at Bernardinis. It was the best restaurant we went to in Lucca! All dishes were tasty, including risotto which is hard to get right. Lovely service also. Location is nice also away from the crouds

First day in Lucca and the rain poured down. We found this little gem. Although we were too early for lunch service the waiter poured us a glass of complimentary prosecco while we waited. The food was lovely. I particularly enjoyed the jarred cod starter. Service was attentive and we can highly recommend this place.

Went for a lunch and dinner and both times the food and service was excellent. The staff try really hard to provide a good service and go out of their way to speak to you. All the food was excellent (meat, fish, pasta) but the desserts were just out of this world. A couple of clues as to how good it is; a number of locals eat here and it gets full up very quickly. Would recommend that you book - we did this both times through trip advisor with no problems

Lovely service, lively wine, good company and you can get glutenfree and vegan dishes.
Good starters and pasta was al dente.

We loved it!

The interior is like a tuscan wine cellar but very welcoming.

It is place to-go in Lucca!
