In the late 1895s, Mr. Guidotti's genius transformed the stables of Villa Bottini in a Drugstore. Since then, there have been plenty of people and illustrious lucchesi, like the Puccini and Luporini masters. Today, more than one hundred years later, the restaurant preserves its original decor intact and transmits the spirit of the time, the scents and the taste of the lucchese tradition. For over 10 years we have also a pizzeria with a wood oven and a kitchen where we prepare typical "Lucchesi" dishes, homemade pasta, t-bone Fiorentina steaks, tastes of local salami and special cheeses.
