Il Geco is in the neighbourhood we are staying so we decided to try it on a sunny Saturday for lunch. The first surprise is the main room at the end of a long entranceway - it looks very comfortable and "warm". However we dined...More

We heard about Il Geco from Australian visitors who we met in Venice. They said it was the best ristorante in Lucca and they were right. We stayed 7 weeks in Lucca and tried many excellent restaurants but Il Geco was the best. The pasta...More

Recommended by trip advisor. Excellent food and terrific service. It was full both nights we went, but we still got great service. Try the chocolate cheese cake. Not what you think it is. It's better.
