Good house wine, ordered 2 mixed salads & they hit the spot. Others were ordering drinks and then having the buffet inside which looked really nice.

Unlike some people I choose a place to visit, read a little about it then generally follow my nose seeing what I bump into. On just such a day in Lucca and in need for a food stop we looked at many but weren't quite drawn in until we came to this particular place. It had a specials menu of pastas for €6 which seemed very reasonable and the next consideration is that my partner eats fish but not meat. I started google translating but decided to enquirer inside and thoughtfully many of the dishes were indeed suitable for my partner. I chose lasagne and she had a ravioli. I have to say we both loved our meals and the large pot of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, mine washed down with a beer and hers with a glass of red wine coming to a grand total of €20 which I thought was very good value for a nice lunch. The service was good and the spot the restaurant is situated in gets you out of the crowds.

We stopped here for a relaxing dinner because the menu looked okay for a light dinner and the tables were outside where you could watch the people around the duomo. The service was terrible. We sat 15 minutes waiting and then a local came in and they waited on them. We had to flag the waiter down to get him to take our order.

We ordered a savory crepe and tuna salad sandwich. The tuna was pretty good but the crepe was not: it was heavy and flat and not much inside. We also ordered French fries and we never got them.

They do give free appetizers with a drink but it gets so crowded that people are constantly bumping you. There were several dogs also and they kept barking.

If you want good food and relaxation, this is not the place. We got up and went elsewhere for our coffee.

This place is ok for a short stop. The place outside is really small. Good Gewürztraminer. Nice staff

I was in Lucca with some friends to assist one event.and needing some Saturday lunch we walked a bit in the centre and found this place. From outside it didn´t looked very promising. But just talking with the waitress it looked much more interesting as it was clear that they really know what they are doing and that they want to satisfy their clients. It was then absolutely awesome that there was a cook having come to our table discussing with us the menu explaining how various dishes are prepared in order to chose better.
We tried various dishes (pasta, soup of farro, salad with fabolous breasaola) and everyone was contented.
They have also a very good coffee so do not miss it.
