About the restaurant Gli Orti di Via Elisa

Nel centro storico di Lucca, vicino alla Porta Elisa, è presente da oltre 20 anni la trattoria pizzeria Gli Orti di via Elisa.
Il locale è situato nel cuore della città tra le più interessanti mete artistico-culturali lucchesi come Villa Bottini, il Complesso di San Micheletto, la porta San Gervasio e Protasio, Villa Guinigi.

Lo chef Samuele Cosentino propone i piatti della tradizione lucchese più classica con il costante impegno verso la ricerca di prodotti del territorio e di aziende agricole locali alle quali rivolgersi per l'approvvigionamento.
Il menù della casa varia quotidianamente anche in base al clima e ai raccolti, ma sicuramente non potrà mancare sulla carta la Zuppa di farro e fagioli della Garfagnana, Il tagliere dei salumi nostrali, il Baccalà con i ceci, il capretto, la famosa torta di mele, miele e formentone otto file ed il pane fatto quotidianamente in casa.

Una graziosa veranda dà la possibilità di organizzare cene private godendo di uno spazio riservato. Sono ben accolti gruppi e comitive, ai quali vengono proposti menù tipici di zona o degustazione di pizza con possibilità di variazione per soddisfare ogni esigenza.

Really great selection of pizzas. Be sure to try the creative selection. The half calzone and half your choice is excellent. Try the brie with ham.

Excellent meal, homemade, tasty with fresh ingredients! ! Tables in the street are somewhat noisy, but they are outside! .. so pick what fits best. In any way we came for the meal, which was, say it again, excellent. Service was fast, friendly, English would not have been a problem, but we prefer Italian.
Clearly an honest recommendation !

The food was good, waiters I felt not as friendly as I would expect and welcome again not what I would expect. One of us had the fillet of sea bass and found at least 12 large ish bones, this says to me attention to detail was lacking. We also had to ask twice for the bill. All in all I would probably eat elsewhere next time in Lucca.

Worst waiting time ever experienced. 45 mins for starter. It was,Saturday night arrived 7 15. We like eating outside and watched waiters delivering takealways as we waited.
And my mains was served at the same time as my husbands tortelli with meat. My main course wouldn't fill a sandwich.
Tasty 2 thin slices but served with ordinary boiled beans. Far too small.
Ordered porcini mushrooms as a side dish 7€.. Sent them back as cold. Complained about waiting time too long.
Full dish of porcini mushrooms arrived 8 45 with husbands baby goat. Very tasty served with roast pots and spinach a very good choice.
Unfortunately mushrooms reacted badly in my stomach so next day I had stomach problems travelling back to Pisa then Malta. A long day

Pity as it was the last night of our holiday!

The restaurant offers a wide range of dishes. We loved our starter cheese plate with several different pecorino cheeses accompanied with jam and honey. Our pasta main dishes were solid offerings. Service was good although as the restaurant got very crowded (Friday night) getting our check was a bit of a challenge.

Beautiful restaurant with a warm welcome from the staff. We ordered a starter of aubergines with a pomodoro sauce that was amazing; the fried chicken was dry but tasty, as were the battered and fried vegetables that accompanied the chicken (the vegetables weren't dry, they were tasty!); and the baby goat was very tender and flavorful. Overall, we would recommend this restaurant.
