    Here is a recent thread on dining in Umbria, which should give you some ideas for Orvieto & Todi.

    In Lucca, Trattoria da Leo is very good for lunch. Buca San Antonio is good for dinner.

      The veal dish you are asking about is Saltimbocca alla Romana.

      How long are you going to be in Lucca? Do you have a car? How much are you prepared to spend for two with a 40-60 Euro bottle of wine?

        Without knowing length of stay, budget and standards, you're asking a lot of people and will probably not get helpful suggestions.

        I could spend a year in Lucca and not get bored with the restaurants. A short drive up into the hills on the Ligurian side and another series of gems.

        Same for Grieve.
