The road to reach the restaurant by night is an experience itself. Then you will find a nice place where you can revisited Italian flavor. The raw fish and the purple gnocchi should be tried !

Villa Bongi is located about 7 km from the walls of Lucca in an old farmhouse that in the past has served as a convent, a summer retreat and even as a refuge for locals during the Second World War. The menu comprises a mix of modern and traditional Tuscan cuisine with a focus on fresh seasonal ingredients. The wine list includes a wide selection of local and Tuscan wines as well as some of Italy's finest drops. The restaurant is closed on tuesday.
