Central location.

Osteria Da Pasquale is located in the centre of Lucca, Tuscany; a historical city between Florence and Pisa, famous for its Renaissance walls, grand piazzas, charming paved streets and birthplace of operatic composer Giacomo Puccini. The affluent city and its periphery has a population in excess of 90,000 and is a very popular destination for travellers visiting Tuscany. Its regular annual tourist events include the ‘Summer Music Festival’ month which has hosted world-famous performers such as Rolling Stones and Elton John, the Puccini Festival and also ‘Lucca Comics’ - the world’s largest gaming event, attracting around 300,000 visitors.

The restaurant.

The privately owned restaurant is located in Via del Moro, in the very heart of Lucca's historical centre, a stone’s throw from all the busiest shopping streets, squares and local hotels. It is decorated in traditional Tuscan style with characterful exposed brickwork and stone features. The internal dining area of c60sqm caters for around 30 covers with a further 40+ covers possible outside (figures based on current Covid-19 social distancing restrictions). 

The restaurant currently operates only on one sitting across the evening session - six days a week. There is enormous scope to extend hours or sittings and turn more covers by opening at lunchtimes.
