With Italian frescoes paying tribute to the Renaissance, delicate chandeliers, solid wooden floors and large pillars, Lucca's dining room looks more like an 18th-century ballroom ready to welcome the state dignitaries of the time. In a smart casual atmosphere, the restaurant serves traditional Italian food and offers all the desirable classics: homemade Tuscan-style pasta, pizzas, antipasti and risottos. You can alternately opt for one of the Italian chef's signature dishes, like the yellow ravioli, using saffron pasta dough, served with chicken, eggplant, eggs and parmesan. The Beef Tagliata (Angus Beef steak, cherry tomatoes and parmesan) or the Pizza Lucca (topped with slices of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, arugula and parmesan) would be equally satisfying choices. The arty ambiance, enhanced at night by music concerts, provides a perfect setting and sublimates these typical dishes, which you can also choose to enjoy on the terrace, near the swimming pool.
