I dined here as a memeber of a large party attending a Conference in Bagni di Lucca. It was dusk when we arrived so I had only a fleeting impression of the gardens and the view, but both are clearly spectacular. Like so many of these excellent restaurants around B di L it is a fierce drag in a car... More

On our recent holiday to Bagni Di Lucca we ate at this restaurant twice. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and provide a lovely setting for meals. The food is incredible, especially the Ravioli with Spinach and Ricotta. It's such a simple dish but such a joy to eat. The panna cotta with caramel is also a must try when you... More

Great homemade food (the chef/owner picked herbs from the pots outside to season our ravioli). Setting in the woods makes for a great drive up winding roads and the staff are nice, both contributing to a pleasant atmosphere for outdoor dining. Food is quite good a well. We've lately been assessing restaurants on the basis of their pannacotta, and this... More

I have been coming to this restaurant ever since I was a little girl, the food here is out of this world!! I absolutely love their tagliatelli with pumpkin and nuts or the one with cream and mushrooms!! This restaurant has the most perfect view of mountains. All the food is fresh and you can smell the mushrooms growing nearby.... More

We ate here 3 times during our two week holiday in Bagni Di Lucca including my sons 18th birthday celebration. Ferdinando and his staff could not have done more to make it a memorable experience! The food was simple, Italian (!) and delicious. Thank you. We will be back.

Villa Aurora is a friendly restaurant, located spectacularly off the road to Casabasciana, which is itself off the SS12 from Bagni di Lucca. The surrounding hills are the foothills of The Dolomites. The main chef and owner is Ferdinando and his main waiter is Sam, who is bilingual in English and Italian. The cuisine is local Italian, most of the... More

Top notch food that hits the spot! Home made pasta....fresh salad and delicious meat...oh and Classic Italian puddings...what more can you want? And it's all priced very reasonably. Off the SS12 just after Bagni di Lucca - turn right in the village of Fabbriche (opposite the Trattoria) and follow the road towards Casabasciana. It's no more that 2 miles up... More

Villa Aurora is off the beaten track, but provides beautiful views of the hills of Bagni di Lucca (turn off the main SS12 road at Fabbriche and head up towards Casabasciana). There was always a warm personal welcome from all the staff and nothing was too much trouble, even opening up when we had just arrived and wanted a drink... More

Walking into the restaurant which is located into the hills of Bagni di Lucca gives phenomenal views of Prato Fiorito. The gentleman is delightful with a warm personal welcome. All the food is fantastic and very well priced, its almost a bargain! Would recommend dishes with mushrooms as the gentleman picks them himself from the forest and they are plentiful... More

The quality of the food was once again still fantastic on our return this year. Max and his colleagues gave excellent service as always. Ferdinando's cooking cannot be faulted. With an endless menu, all very reasonably priced, we would have happily eaten here every night. Lunch is equally as good but remember that the pizza oven is only lit in... More
