We were recommended this place by a local as it is slightly away from the main tourist hubbub but easily accessible from the Port Eliza car park. It is small but has a good atmosphere and the 10 euro tourist menu was wonderful. Friendly service...More

The four of us wanted a traditional lunch which is what we got. Two soups were excellent and house wine good. Service a bit erratic but overall good value.

We had lunch here last week-end. The set menu is very reasonably priced at €20 each but unfortunately the service was very poor (slow, muddled, no obvious leader) and the food good to awful. Some of the food was good - in particular the local...More

This is an interesting little restaurant. The entry is via small shop selling coffees/cigarettes/confectionery and drinks. Through the back is one room for dining, then off to the left, another larger room for dining. So, far so good...... The menu was quite extensive, which I...More

In the late 1895s, Mr. Guidotti's genius transformed the stables of Villa Bottini in a Drugstore. Since then, there have been plenty of people and illustrious lucchesi, like the Puccini and Luporini masters. Today, more than one hundred years later, the restaurant preserves its original decor intact and transmits the spirit of the time, the scents and the taste of the lucchese tradition. For over 10 years we have also a pizzeria with a wood oven and a kitchen where we prepare typical "Lucchesi" dishes, homemade pasta, t-bone Fiorentina steaks, tastes of local salami and special cheeses.
