    This was our third visit to this restaurant and it is still exceeding our expectations. The location is great, the service is excellent and authentic and the food is to die for. If you are in Lucca do not miss this place!

    Traditional cuisine with a few modern touches. Very attentive and relaxed staff. Moderately priced. There’re seats in ancient (XVI century palazzo). Would definitely visit again.

    Food was really good and tasty. Outside tables are not the best option, but we are in 2020 and there’s no other possibility. Can only recommend this place. 9 from 10

    Lovely setting in a tastefully decorated vaulted cellar. Friendly welcome, attentive, discreet service. Top-notch Lucchese cuisine using local products. All pasta home-made. Also, an extensive, reasonably priced selection of wines. Enjoy!

    Absolutely loved our dinner experience last night. The food was fabulous and the staff was so accommodating. We practiced our Italian - but it was okay, because our waitress spoke excellent English. They had great recommendations for food, wine and digestivo ????. My only regret is that I can’t figure out how to go again before I leave. Loved it!!!!!!

    The evening started off with a glass of complimentary Prosecco, home baked bread. The wine list was enormous, we chose a Rafina Chianti, Francbaldi, highly recommended. The food and service was great, relaxed and friendly but knowledgeable and efficient. Over all a lovely evening

    The overall assessment was very badly impacted by the lady in the reception. She was very ugly refusing to give us a table inside. In spite I was addressing her in Italian, she could listen my wife speaking Spanish and she said that she couldn’t understand and started to mock us. The owner of the restaurant realised all the situation and then he did everything to improve it. Free .drinks, special attention, etc... unfortunely our mood was already low and it was a bad experience.

    Really nice - the food and staff were excellent. We had the beef tartar, tomato zoupa, baked cod and veal were all great and fresh. The tiramisu was out of this world. Together with a bottle of wine €90. The staff all spoke English and were very attentive. Many locals were eating here and you definitely need to reserve

    The food was fantastic. I rarely provide feedback, my bad, but I cannot let this go unsaid. My octopus app was the best I've had and the baked cod was second to none. Desert was all moans. Leaving tomorrow otherwise we would go back.

    Booked a table for 11 at short notice and the staff were really friendly and accommodating. Happy for us the move tables to outside between our courses. The food was of a really high standard with nice extras like homemade bread served in paper bags. Price was very reasonable for the quality. Would highly recommend this restaurant

    The food was good and decently priced, but the waitress insisting on speaking English to us made things much harder than they needed to be. Even those in our group who speak Italian were put off by this. While I’m sure she was trying to be helpful and welcoming, she should learn to follow the cues of guests and not insist on her way repeatedly and ungraciously.

    A lovely friendly welcome to this restaurant in the wine cellars of the old Pallazzo Bernadini, and our waitress Julia was a delight! (In fact one of our group wanted to bring her back to England to marry her son!) Service was excellent, suggestions made for each course, and the local wines were tasty and good value. As a group of 15, we felt at ease and well fed, and enjoyed the evening very much indeed. (On reflection, the noise level was probably us!)

    Wonderful dinner with very friendly staff who accommodated our deficient Italian language. The restaurant has outdoor seating with downstairs indoor bar and seating as well. Inside was beautifully renovated wine cellar-style with a brick arched ceiling. Wine selection was great. We started with canollini stuffed with broccoli pesto and cheese. I had a fish pasta which was delicious and mom had wild boar Ragu.

    Our meals were delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. Portions were large (rather more than we needed) and we appreciated their willingness to substitute an accompanying vegetable for another on the menu. Although we were too full for dessert, the choices looked very appealing. The vino di casa was quite reasonable. We hope to return.
