We absolutely lucked out on our visit to this terrific restaurant. In what was probably our favorite city, we were walking and walking and were hungry. We were trying to find a restaurant to go to. Up and down the streets we went. We finally crawl to the top of another hill with a church and a scenic overlook and we see Lucevan. It’s nice out and they have some tables outside. The food was great and we had a wonderful meal. Highly recommend.

Stumbled in to get out of the wind, found a very busy wine bar with c7 tables. We sat and had a bottle of wine while we waited for a table. Service was excellent, warm and friendly. Food was superb, we had the meat & cheese platter to start followed by wild boar pasta and stuffed pasta with chicken. Both exceptional!

Bill came to €60 for the wine (€24) and 2 courses with a shared desert.

We went at night but could imagine the views across the city would have been spectacular

Would definitely recommend!

Very well positioned terrace allowed us to what the Tuscan sun and drink wine at the same time. We stayed and ate as well. Very friendly staff, great pasta and all at a reasonable price. Couldn’t really ask for more. Even do a local IPA which was vert passable.

Had the pleasure of being waited on by Christian. He was so gracious to us even though we only speak English. The food was very good and an excellent value considering it’s beautiful location looking out over the Tuscan landscape. Definitely a restaurant I would recommend for a quick meal, or snacks and wine

My wife and I stumbled across this restaurant after we had already eaten elsewhere. We were drawn in by the local band that was playing --it was a Friday night. What great entertainment in this terrific wine bar. Excellent warm atmosphere. We will definitely return --hopefully for dinner or to see the live local entertainment again (on Fridays!).
