    The menue offers a vast selection of Tuscan dishes including plates that are difficult to find elsewhere. I have been there three times and every time we were very happy with our choices. I especially reccomend the "Peposa" a beef stew cooked in a pepper sauce, and the "tonno di Cianti" (smoked shoulder of pork with sweet sour onions). The value for money is great - especially when using the Fork offers. The service team and the owner himself are professional but also very welcoming and sympathic. I highly reccomend this restaurant for a down-to-earth Tuscan experience at Lucca.

    Just okay overall. Nice atmosphere inside, computer printed menus were cheap and falling apart, food had good flavor and presentation, decent but slow service. We luckily beat the rush in.

    Love all the black truffle starters and entrees. Lots of flavor and creativity in the pasta offerings.

    We're in Lucca for a month and noticed this restaurant always seems to be empty. I don't understand why, as it's delicious! My companion and I had two of the best meals we've had in Italy. We will definitely go back!

    Just correct with minuses. Melanzane al Parmigiano 7/10. Gnocchi average. You must rescue yourself with a lot of olio and pepper and after it 6/10. Gnudi was just bad 3/10. You don't feel like in Italy there. Choose something else.

    Osteria tipica con menù di pesce e di carne. Ribollita al top e fettona di porchetta sublime.

    I went for truffle and indeed they have quite a choice of dishes with the famous ingredient. Place is cosy, service and food good. I find prices a bit too high but The Fork discount was valuable.

    Nice, unassuming neighborhood eatery with good, friendly service and tasty, home-made dishes. Recommend the local specialty, a ravioli called “tordelli”, especially the dish prepared with the chianina beef ragù. Bill was extremely reasonable with the generous Fork discount. Be sure and leave a nice (10%) tip!
