Visited with my husband and two children, the restaurant was warm and friendly. The food home cooked with fresh ingrediants, everything you'd expect from a great Italian restaurant.

Menu offered a range of traditional Tuscan dishes from wild boar to offal. Good range on offer. Pumpkin gnocchi was delicious. Interesting decor and attentive service.

I had rented an apartment on the Anfiteatro and Osteria Baralla was on a suggested list of restaurants. A sign outside the entrance touted its high quality meat dishes so I ordered a cinghiale ragu with polenta. The sauce was rich and flavorful. Wild boar might not be to everyone's liking but I appreciated this full flavored dish. My husband... More

The restaurant has a lovely appearance with old curved ceilings and open brick work which made for a warm, cosy feeling. The staff were helpful & friendly, & the food traditional, local & honest. There is nothing fancy about this place & it appears popular with the locals which is always a good sign. The food was a little on... More

Osteria Baralla was suggested to me by a local, so on a cold night in January, in a ghost night in Lucca, we went to find the place amongst many closed places in central Lucca. We managed to find Baralla and entered the cosy place which offered us a shelter from the cold outside. Baralla seems to be an old... More

We went there with a bunch of friends - 12 of us. We order different meals and black & white house vine, so we can try as many as possible! Everything was very, very tasty. We only baited a little longer for main course, but in place such this you always get lot of starters - some of them you... More

As food critic I’ve been asked to visit the restaurant BARALLA. My reviews are impartial regardless who pays for my bill. RESTAURANT Baralla is a typical italian trattoria with plenty of history behind it. It offers local cuisine and traditional recipes from Lucca. FOOD Artichoke was strongly present in the menu and we had two starters: Artichokes in asiago (Cheese)... More

My wife and I have enjoyed many wonderful meals in this charming restaurant, conveniently located just north of Piazza Anfiteatro. I recommend making a reservation because it is frequently booked up. Only last week we enjoyed a terrific meal beginning with baked artichokes and asiago cheese, followed by beef stew and polenta for me and tagliate with artichokes for her.... More

Lovely vaulted room, tremendous local dishes and a great local wine list. We had dinner and immediately booked to come back again a couple of nights' later.

We had come to this restaurant four years ago while visiting Lucca and we loved it. This time, we came back twice. The food is fabulous, but the friendly staff are what really makes it so lovely to visit. It was my husband's 70th birthday, so we had made a reservation for our friends and ourselves. I had tried to... More
