I strongly disadvice. I took pizza salami picante, my husband margherita. Pizzas looked like frozen, heated in microwave and tasted exactly the same way. As stated before - one of the worst pizzas we had during our 1.5 yrs stay in Italy!

If you do not know what to eat do not make reviews, you are not Italian and you do not know what to eat and before you say that you are frozen pizzas rinse your mouth.

I come to Lucca four or five times a year and always visit Rusticanella. I love the laid-back, unhurried, totally authentically Tuscan atmosphere. The steak (tagliata, especially) is THE best in the city. I also love the somewhat scary-looking waitress who serves the whole restaurant...More

This is a nice, cosy restaurant that has a pleasant local feel. We had dinner there recently, trying their pizza and pasta with pecorino cheese. Both offered great value for money. We also tried one starter - baked pecorino (because, you know, pecorino seems to...More
