Hi,

Tonight we were in that restaurant and it was amazing. The food and wine was so good and we had a friendly welcome prosecco and something like a tomato pesto. The waiter was so friendly and gentile. Thanks for that perfect night and the perfect meal!!!

Thank Eva F

We wanted to get away from the main drag and the hordes of the crowds congregated in the large piazzas here in Lucca. so we sought out this place as it seemed the most local resort and out of the way place and we were so rewarded. It would appear the only people eating here are foodies and locals who know this restaurant new...as they entered they had the air as having dined here and being good friends of the house. Service was very professional and prompt and we were taken very well care of there. The food really stood on it's own and after eating the bread and our first course the octopus appetizer we were excited to have our pasta and were delighted we had found this gem. I found the pasta to be very delicate. Was the pappardelle with rabbit sauce. little bits of succulent rabbit amongst the ribbons of pasta in a delicate but flavorful sauce accented with pungent olives. it was perfection. They also have a very nice Italian focused wine list. The atmosphere was calm but once full it was lively and everyone appeared to be enjoying. Highly recommended

Although it doesn't feel that way, Locanda dell'Angelo claims to be the oldest restaurant in Lucca. However, Buca di Sant'Antonio might dispute that, and their food, the ambiance and their staff does suggests it, whereas at dell'Angelo they have modernised their take on Italian cuisine making it more interesting, varied and a little lighter. Our lunch was superb, the wines fascinating and it was a reasonable price. The dining room is spacious and elegant and the service pleasant and attentive. I don't understand why it is not more popular.

Food was really good but a bit too Fine dinning for my liking, felt as if the staff were always hovering.

We sat in a tented room out the back in a close, were the neighbours in always coming and going to their properties..

not much atmosphere.
