I have eaten there many times and have always been pleasantly surprised by the excellence of the food. You just show up, there is no menu and they bring you dish after dish with the best food you could imagine. The evening view over the Lucca plain is magical and the ambiance is just perfect.

No menu, no choices (unless you are allergic), food just bought until you can't eat anymore. Friendly service. Home style Italian cooking. Very affordable. Went back 2 nights in a row.
