In the historic centre of Lucca, just a few steps from Porta Elisa, the trattoria pizzeria "Gli Orti di via Elisa" has been in existence for more than ten years. It is at the heart of Lucca's most interesting artistic and cultural sites, such as the Villa Bottini, the San Micheletto complex and the Gate of San Gervasio and protasio.
Gli Orti di via Elisa is also the regular haunt of important sports personalities, such as foorballers, cyclists and racing-drivers. This is thanks its informal but punctual service and to its simple, genuine and traditional style of cooking.
The house menu is very extensive and the following dishes definitely should not be missed: the risotto of the house, farro (spelt) cooked in Garfagnana style, young goat kebabs, and roasted salt cod with chick-peas. An elegant veranda can be reserved for private dinners. We wellcome groups and parties to whom we can offer a typical local menu, or a selection of pizzas cooked in our wood-oven with a choice of topping to satisfy all tastes.
