We've been to circolo dei forestieri multiple times, for dinner and lunch. Every time we've been there, the food was delicious. Beautiful building, good service and delicious food, also multiple options for vegetarians. One of the best restaurants we've eaten all vacation

We returned to Bagni di Lucca for a few days and wanted to see if the Circolo Dei Forestieri was still as good as it had been when we visited over the last 2 years. It was! Absolutely excellent food and service again and unbeatable...value with their tourist lunch menu. Great team of waiting staff - friendly efficient fast and constantly multi tasking - a really well run operation, with excellent food in a great location. It can get very busy, so makes sense to reserve a table a day or two prior to visiting if possible (especially in August) although if you turn up by chance they will always try to accommodate you if at all possible. Five stars again and we hope to return in 2021.More

I’ve eaten here twice in a week. Both times for lunch. It’s great value for money! The lunch menu is typically Tuscan and has a wide range. Get there by 12:30pm or book ahead to avoid disappointment in high season.

I highly recommend having the multi-course luncheon that features traditional Tuscan food. Everything is well prepared and the prices are definitely reasonable. The dining room is large and airy. Don't miss the view from the back balcony.

The restaurant is in a really splendid old building and the food, service and atmosphere are excellent. Very nice outside seating area for a pre dinner drink too. 👍

Er didn’t get the chance to think before the waiter pushed us to order something to drink. The waiter started whining becuase we did not know what to order. After we orderd drinks the waiter started trash takling us to other guests becuase we only...wanted something to drink. They might have good food, but we did not want to order any becuase of the horrible service.More

The family wanted to go in to drink some wine and have some coffee, and the waiter escorted us to some tables. After Just ordering drink, the waiter got angry and started yelling at us that we altso had to eat. So we felt obligated...to ordner a few meals even through we were not hungry. Then the waiter took away most of the cuttlery so that we could not share the food. She altso talked condescending about us to other guests, pointing fingers and where mad at us. The whole experience was terrible.More

We went here for dinner after arriving in bagni Di lucca late one evening. It had a nice seating area outside so we decided to go there. All the food was excellent. We had a starter to share, I’ve forgotten the name but it was...Parma ham, soft cheese and little dough balls. Plenty for us to share. For mains the children shared a steak, I had chicken from the specials menu (it translated to hunted chicken) my husband had tortellini ragu. All meals were excellent, the best we’ve had in a week stay in Tuscany. The service was also great. They had run out of chips as it was late so the children (reluctantly !) ordered salad and grilled veg. However, when the streak arrived the waitress had chips too! The chef prepared chips especially for us. Excellent service, staff and the best food. We will return soon!More
