Lunch with Luisito

My favourite place to eat in Lucca is Paris Boheme.  It is owned and run by the delightful Luis, front of house, and Davide, in the kitchen.

They redecorate the restaurant regularly. This is the latest. Soon there will be a new summer theme.

They change the menu often as well.

Local cheese with their own preserves is a great starter.

Ravioli with strawberries and champagne is delicious.

I go regularly to Paris Boheme because the food is great, an freshly prepared with what is in season…and I know I am always going to see a friendly face.

Don’t miss Paris Boheme in the Piazza Cittadella in Lucca. It is beside the statue of Puccini sitting in his chair.

You should book if you want to go in the evening…say hello to Luis.
