We had octopus salad, local pasta with red Thai curry sauce, calamari and cuttlefish and white fish with ginger, carrot purée and orange- all delicious! All the flavours combined well together. Service was great and would highly recommend this place!

This restaurant is small and intimate, which was a nice change. The air conditioned, charming space made for a nice, quiet and enjoyable evening. The food was very good and well presented. The service is warm and friendly. It was a wonderful experience!

Excellent total dinner experience. Plenty of traditional Tuscan food including some Asian flavors with Italian pasta like coconut milk based red curry, spicy lobster with tagliatelle, perfectly prepared sous vide beef short ribs in apple juice reduction, soft but with excellent texture, chilled strawberry and...red pepper scallops, ginger with crispy-skinned sea bass, etc. Wonderful, very professional, personal service. Excellent wine selection and dessert. Was great to see a restaurant flex its muscles a little bit with something more than traditional Tuscan food in Lucca. Could not recommend more highly.More

We had a large family party visiting this restaurant in July, including two children. When checking my receipt after our visit I was quite surprised by the cover charge of €3 for each child as well as the adults and the charge for filtered water....I subsequently decided to discuss this with the owner who took offence and told me I should have checked the menu prices before visiting the restaurant. He then proceeded to tell me that he had to pay €5 per head to The Fork for our booking which he was clearly not happy about. This did surprise me somewhat as presumably he was not forced to sign up to the Fork to fill his restaurant. Altogether, a poor experience.More

Really great mix of Italian and Asian food, the slightly spicy lobster pasta was superb, as was the fish soup. Sea bass on the set menu was excellent. 2 courses for €30, 3 courses for €40 or a la carte for between €18 and €28...- great service, lovely spot. Highly recommended.More

We had a fantastic meal. All 6 of us had the 3 course menu of starter and 2 mains (40€) + wine. A couple of things were unavailable but we were offered alternatives which were beautiful. The food is fresh, tasty and different to other...restaurants. It’s a special treat in the streets of Lucca.More

Absolutely loved this little restaurant. Run by a couple with 20 years experience from Singapore. They serve Italian food with an Asian touch and it is really great. Situated right next to the Anfiteatro.

We were so looking forward to our first visit to this restaurant after all the positive reviews. However, be aware that with the 2 or 3 course set menu there is no choice or flexibility. The owner tells you the set menu for the evening....If you don’t like it you have to choose from the a La carte menu which works out expensive. Those in our party who had the set menu (tuna, squid pasta and sea bass) enjoyed it but others did not have such a good experience with the beef. Also, the owner was too quick to remove our plates; we had to tell him that my daughter had not finished her meal which he prematurely cleared away. Also, be aware the air con is not that powerful if you like a cool atmosphere on a very warm night. All in all would not return given all the other wonderful dining options in Lucca.More

We visited in July ‘23 as a couple and had tasting menu paired with excellent local white wine. It included 3 very generous courses of Italian food with Asian influence. Superb and cooked to perfection. Octopus not to be missed! And grappa to finish was...just cherry on top. Good value too and service was impecable! Don’t miss this gem!More

We were expecting great food after reading all the reviews. Our starters were good but the mains were very disappointing. I had fish which was raw in places. My husband had the beef which lacked flavour and was quite tough. We didn’t bother with desert....Had much nicer food in other restaurants in LuccaMore
