We went there after recommendation from our landlord. It was true as I heard, depends on who was in the kitchen and who is serving you, you will get the food and the service accordingly. The starter was delicious the main dish meat was closer to be cold than warm, the frites and the salads never made it to our... More

Simple ,good quality with no frills but a pleasant atmosphere of locals and a genuine welcome from the boss despite him still grieving the loss of his wife .We went three times during our stay in the village , in a group of 4 adults and two children and were very satisfied .

Typical food for this type of osteria/area. Terrible service with rude staff. Would not return as there are plenty of better options in the area.

The place could not be named better than it is: "Di Malcontenti" (the dissatisfied) as it is exactly how you will feel after a lunch there. The owner was awfully rude to us, had not even bothered to prepare our table although our hotel had called to book, she grinned at us when we arrived and showed us a table... More

Were given no menus on arrival. Were shocked when bill came to find we had been charged 24 euros for three tiny portions of tortellini which were served on the same plate. Chicken with rabbit was like KFC with a few frozen chips on the side. Worst meal by far we have had in two years visiting Tuscany. Place swarming... More

What a nice place. In the middle of the mountains we found this low profile restaurant, with very nice staff. They spoke no English but we had no problem understanding each other. We absolutely loved the food. Simple but delicious. They also sold local specialties such as wine, ham and cheese. A must while in this region!

We drove to Il Bottteghino on a Sunday afternoon. Our friends had booked a table at this small restaurant just north of Lucca. As they explained it, 'When you book a table for Sunday lunch in Italy, it is yours for the entire afternoon'. They further explained that the time allocated for pranzo is 'sacro sant' and that no one... More
