Eating out near our Tuscan Holiday Cottage

This page will grow in time. For now, it’s just a few of my recommendations, but to be honest, there are tons of restaurants as you can imagine. Oh, and there’s a Michelin Starred restaurant 15 minutes from your Holiday Home in Tuscany!

Erasmo – the closest restaurant to the house. It’s just at the bottom of the hill, and you will pass it to and from Lucca.

Piazza Dell’Anfiteatro is a typical Tuscan, circular piazza, with restaurants all around the perimeter. Just wander around and pick one you fancy! Best to enter the city via Porta Santa Maria.

La Corte dei Limoni (The Court of Lemons), aka The Local Food Market – fab place just inside the city walls of Lucca.

L’Oste Di Lucca (The innkeeper/ host of Lucca) – one of my faves in the centre of the city of Lucca. They also have an amazing food shop nearby too. See below.


A Michelin Starred restaurant 15 minutes from your Holiday Home in Tuscany? Oh yeah!
