Fodor's Expert Review Buca di Sant'Antonio

$$ Lucca Italian Fodor's Choice

The staying power of Buca di Sant'Antonio—it's been around since 1782—is the result of superlative Tuscan food brought to the table by waitstaff who don't miss a beat. The menu includes the simple but blissful tortelli lucchesi al sugo (meat-stuffed pasta with a tomato-and-meat sauce), and more daring dishes such as roast capretto (kid) with herbs. A white-wall interior hung with copper pots and brass musical instruments creates a classy but comfortable dining space.
