One of the best t-bone steaks we have ever had! The primi plate was also very good and extensive. And really an extra: the service of the chef and waitress. The chef came to our table for explanation and to check if we were satisfied (for sure!). To summarize: go if you like steak and if you are in Lucca.

This restaurant is a bit of a hidden gem. Its not in the center but thankfully it's near our b&b! We went in based on the reviews on here. It is amazing. Thankfully we had Google translate an a fellow diner who helped us translate too, but if we had learnt Italian it would have been fine! We wanted the steak but it came uncooked, thankfully I asked the question before it arrived and therefore we managed to get the steak cooked, it was perfect, and the pizza, wow, it's the best pizza I've tasted. So crisp and tasty. The chef came over after the meal and he spoke very good English so we could have done with him when ordering, but again that's our fault for not learning Italian! He talked us into a dessert and it was also beautiful. Everything was well presented and very fresh! We will be visiting again when we cone next year!
