We went for pizza but everybody is saying this place has always been good for other dishes. There's no reason to go here for pizza is you're staying in the walls but if you would like a nice big selection of quality cooked dishes, visit here. Price is good too.

Just enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Trattoria Gosto e Mea with family and a friend. It was recommended by our rental agent and it certainly did not disappoint. We ordered multiple starters and entrees and everything was delicious. Might have been our best meal yet this trip. The service was prompt, attentive, and very friendly. Yes, this restaurant is primarily... More

We were recommended this place by our travel agent. It was great. Especially the tender and plentiful boned rolled rabbit and orange fennel salad. The melon peperoncino sorbet packed a punch too. Somewhere locals go rather than being on the tourist strip. Slightly bland porcini risotto and fewer clams than shells in the otherwise tasty seafood pasta meant it fell... More

Best home wine! Wonderful food. Our friend told us Italians go there instead of going to the restaurants in the old town except for Gigi

Found this place whilst looking for another restaurant that our B&B had recommended. Looked nice inside and was filling up with Italian couples and families. So, even though we were told quite firmly that the menu was only in Italian, we decided to give it a go. Google came to the rescue with the parts of the menu that we... More

After riding our bikes around the wall surrounding Lucca, we took a short walk out of the old walled city and lunched at Gosto & Mea. It is a wonderful " locals" restaurant with excellent food, great service and very clean. A glass of local wine can be had for 2.50 EUR. They serve pizza in the evening only. Very... More

Just walk down the road saw lots of locals eating said let's give it a go they were busy we sat out side and that was it we just could not get served so we went in and ordered. One redeeming feature the food was excellent so if you want to feel like an unwelcome tourist but have a good... More

This restaurant is outside the city walls of Lucca so less touristy. It's not fancy but the food is just so delicious. I had a really amazing pizza!

This restaurant was recommended by our holiday agent as one that locals love. That was definitely the case. Italians poured in towards the end of our meal. But would I recommend it? Not sure... The back room is bright, with a TV on (maybe try to sit in the front instead). Service was good, and friendly. Come here for a... More
