yes another gem in Lucca, more on the higher class this one, small in winter, and in summer with a delightful summer garden. Booking can be a good idea.... food is refined and well presented, service is appropriate, and the ambiance is very cosy indeed. Food selection is limited, but everything is cooked there and then and you can taste it is.... menu caters for all tastes, and the wine selection is more that adequate. Altogether a very nice restaurant, worth walking the extra 3 mins off the beaten track to find it. Price refelects the quality of food served and its "a la carte" preparation... owner and staff are very professional, prepared and non invasive.

We have gone to Canuleia many times over the past six/seven years and not only has it maintained the highest quality reputation, if anything it's even better. The food is incredibly creative and the garden is the most romantic spot in all of Lucca. We love it!

This is a good but not exceptional restaurant tucked away in a fairly hidden corner of Lucca.

There is a temptation at the end of Lucca to eat at a restaurant in the Amphitheatre, and if you want the spectacle, the people watching etc and don't mind what you eat and being ripped off, go ahead. But if you need a little peace and want to eat well then just outside, at the bottom left hand corner, look for Canuleia. You will welcomed, even if its a little late, and perhaps be able to sit in the quiet shaded garden at the back. The most interesting part of the fairly and clearly priced menu seems to be the antipasti, but that may be just our experience. Everthing seems cooked to order. The wines are also well priced and the service is charm and helpfullness itself.

Went with friends and all 6 of us really enjoyed our dinner. I had the wild boar pasta and the breast of duck - which were both really terrific. We were the only table in the restaurant the night we were there, so the service was very good and very fast. With a couple of bottles of wine, and 3 courses each, the bill was under 200 euro. The Canuleia is well worth a visit.
