We ate lunch at this restaurant and it was a very good expereince overall. We entered into a large dining room with a beautiful romanesque celing. We ate pasta, soup and beef stew. All were delicious, as was the red wine we were served. These are Lucchese recipes handed down through generations.

Interesting pasta dishes, not the usual fare. Dishes of the day all tasty. Service pleasant. Really enjoyed it. Recommended by our tour guide.

We loved the food at Trattoria Buralli we ate here 3 times (1x lunch, 2x dinners) during our 10 day stay in Pisa. The service is friendly and helpful with a special mention to Guyan (sorry if I misspelled it) who was always so welcoming. The food is unashamedly authentic and typically Lucchese; and all made in-house. The daily changing... More

I went with my boyfriend for lunch. We ordered wild boar with tomato sauce and polenta, a pasta dish with tomatoes and fried chicken with tempura veggies. Wild boar was beautiful but polenta wasn't amazing for me. Pasta was very nice but fried chicken is not as great as KFC :-p Service was great, the waiter was very helpful in... More

We went here based off the suggestion of our host the hotel for lunch given the time being closer to the usual closing period here. It doesn't have a top trip advisor rating compared to other stuff around and it confuses me. This place is our second best meal in Italy easily of a three week trip. Also the service... More

The Trattoria is away from the busy part of town, but well worth it. We asked our waiter to recommend what he would order. He said that the macaroni and cheese was a specialty of the house. The noodles were flat and light, rather than the typical macaroni noodle we get here in the states. The fresh tomatoes and fresh... More

You might easily miss this restaurant when visiting Lucca. This would be a shame. Although not in one of the fashionable locations, the standard of food coupled with exceptional value should make this one for anyones short list, when visiting Lucca.

We went here based on our hotel's and Rick Steve's recommendation. I'm afraid it did not live up to our expectations. We don't eat meat, so maybe the restaurant does better with it's specials for boar or tripe, but when it comes to standards like gnocchi or pasta with funghi, forget it. Service was friendly enough, but I have to... More

We ended up eating dinner here two nights in a row. The food was simple and delicious -- plus good wine, friendly staff, and a quiet corner of Lucca to enjoy it all.
