Really good food here. No holding back with potion sizes. Recommend it. Away from the tourists and a nice area just outside Lucca.

We have been twice to this restaurant that is located in Nozzano on the outskirts of Lucca. It is obviously popular as there were plenty of people there both times. There is no designated parking. You just have to pull up on the side of the road. It is on a corner so that provides more parking. The first time... More

We stayed in a villa near by for 5 days and visited Il Borghetto twice during this time. I can't find the words to describe the food, it is everything you dream off when planning to visit Tuscany -- coupled with amazing wine/prosecco. None of the restaurants in Lucca or further, Florence and Pisa can compare with it, definitely the... More

This restaurant came highly recommended from our villa owner and we were not disappointed. If you want a taste of the real authentic Tuscany food then this is well worth a visit. We ordered the steak dish and assorted fried fish batter both very reasonably priced both excellent quality. The following night we had a couple of pizza takeaways which... More

We stayed at a local villa, named 'Villa Pardi', which was a great experience in in itself. The owner suggested this'local restaurant', affordable and where locals know what kind of quality food to expect. So we went. And, did so 3 times in total in the course of 4 days. Everytime the place was packed with locals. Even on a... More

We were sent here by a boutique hotel nearby whose restaurant was not operating on a Saturday night. The place was packed with local people out for a good evening and that is what we had too. Do not expect refined dining but wholesome Tuscan food. The variety on the menu is enormous. Plenty of seafood as well as the... More

This restaurant provides charm and excellent choice of food, from wood fired Pizza (including take away service) to both fish and meat dishes. We have a house in the village and return again and again for our favourite Spaghetti alla vongole, and Tiramisu!! do die for.....

I don't think I'm alone when searching for an authentic and good Asian restaurant I look for one where I spot a lot of Asians. Here, my girl and I were the only native English speakers in this restaurant which had no less than about 75 diners. The service, despite the language barrier having to be overcome, was relaxed but... More
