Too touristy place. I think earlier it was very attractive but not now. Wine was pour, coffee was pour. Find another place for your time and money.

We enjoyed an aperitivo prior to our Puccini recital one evening. It is just outside of the venue and can give you a way to "watch the door" if you are looking to get a good seat. Simple drinks and snack will only set you...More

We chose the 3 wines tasting after having read the reviews on here. Although the wines were enjoyable and the staff most pleasant they did not know anything about the wines. Disappointed as we could have had the same experience in any bar in Luca...More

Tucked away on the route from Napoleon Piazza to the Duomo we stopped for lunch. Generous sandwiches on a choice of fresh bread with garnish. You could share a sandwich between two! Attentive service while watching the world go by.

Tried 3 wines as part of a wine tasting deal. The servers were very knowledgeable about the wines (in English as well-very impressive!), and all were from the Lucca area.

Stopped by for the wine tasting which included 5 different wines. Really good value for money and the staff knew their wines. Had a great time. Shame it was so empty but the rain and time of year kept people away.

I chose this restaurant as some of the more recent reviews were very complimentary about it and I knew where it was. It's probably better suited if you do want to go there for a wine tasting experience. We didn't. They didn't have much to...More

We went to the superb Puccini concert in Piazza San Giovanni and spotted this place before we went in. Happily we reserved a table for a post concert meal. The restaurant is small. They specialise in local produce and wine and do a wine tasting...More
