I have gone there at lunch during my visit in lucca. The place is very simple, one large room with some more tables in a court outside. One side of the room one big desk, where homemade pies are shown. Dishes are very good, I tried rice with baccalà and olives, really extraordinary!! Service is very careful, the owner is... More

Great place and absolute great service. Last night my husband and I went there to have dinner. Around 7:30pm local time, and we walked in and a very nice man asked if we indeed have a reservation. I said we didn't, and he said that the whole restaurant is booked for 9:00pm, but he still gave as a table for... More

Had the pleasure of dining on a number of occasions in this restaurant during a recent visit to Lucca. sampled various dishes during these visits, must say that the seafood was a highlight. Staff were always friendly and efficient and our lack of Italian was not a difficulty. Would also recommend the house red as great value at €7 per... More

I was in Lucca doing Italian course in October. One of our teachers recommended Osteria via S Giorgio as nice place to eat. It was simply delicious. Service was not intrusive and friendly. Cosy room, nice atmosphere, simple but excellent quality food and good choice of wine.

Very good lunch at this fun spot. Had an amazing home made pasta with a red wine, ham and grape sauce. Way good. You have to try the meatballs stuffed with cheese, deep fried and served over a bed of mixed greens. Both so unusual. You have to go by and try out some of their dishes along with their... More

Another great recommendation by our hotel staff. Great choices on the menu, excellent friendly service (the only female server in our 2 weeks in Italy), excellent house wines. Had the Gli spaghetti al pomodoro e basilico o all'arrabbiata as a primo piatti-fresh, well-prepared. Reservations required

For me. this place ticks off all the boxes as far as Luchese fare goes. The surroundings are pleasant but certainly not grand. There are no white tablecloths or anything like that. The staff are friendly but sometimes overstretched, with one waiter and a few helpers covering the whole room. But if, sadly, I had to go to only one... More

Went here because of a recommendation from our hotel. They also told us the seafood pasta was very good and they were not wrong, some of the best I have tasted. Yet again the house wine was very drinkable. Service was excellent and very friendly. This will be top of the list on my next visit to Lucca.

I ate here on my first visit and enjoyed it so I had no compunction in going back. They were busy on a Saturday night in October and we had to sit outside which was fine. The starter was excellent but the main course was a disappointment just bland and chewy! My friend commented her starter was excellent and her... More
