We were here for a dinner with colleagues, the atmosphere was amazing, the location is great, and the lights and the tables were nice decorated. Elegant and warm. The cuisine was good.

Ordered the calzone, it was the biggest I have ever seen and the dough was sensational. Amazing value for €7.50! My lady had black spaghetti with lobster which was also fantastic. Also try some of the Petrognola beer - it's local to Lucca and delicious.

This was a great find close to where we were staying. We ate here on a Sunday evening. The food was excellent, both the duck and venison melted in the mouth. The staff were very attentive and attempted to teach us basic Italian. In Cafe we were able to buy our breakfast for the next day which was equally delicious.

We had a pleasant break with tea, apple and pine seed tart and an especially good traditional Lucca free vegetables sweet tart. The place is quite new and nice, service is quick and nice, too. All the more reasons for keeping the toilets well. A missing toilet seat is only acceptable in the most basic premises, and tidy. This was... More

We arrived in Lucca mid afternoon and very hungry. We came through the ramparts by the entrance closest to the train station when my Aunt spotted this place. I was leery at first as I figured a place on the ramparts with Caffetteria in the name was probably a tourist trap with microwaved food. I'm glad I didn't vocalize my... More

We ate at San Colombano twice during our recent visit to Lucca. San Colombano is on Lucca's City Wall, a lovely and lively green space surrounding the old City. The first time we were there, we had just arrived and were too early to check into our accommodation. We sat under shady trees on a warm afternoon and had a... More

I visited Lucca for two weeks and ate at many different places. Of all of them, this was the best. I had heard about it early in my trip, but hadn't tried it until a few days before I left as it was never in my path. I am so disappointed that I only had time to go twice. The... More

We stopped for a beer. Apparently we had sat at the wrong table, so the waitress insisted that we move to a different one. Given the place had perhaps three tables occupied this seemed both rude and unnecessary.

So when you are tired of all the tourist restaurants and craving for a really good and well prepared meal.. this is the place to go. The food is so good, the atmosphere nice, the staff was spot on and the presentation of the dishes is simple and elegant. The theme of this place is simply good cooking. We went... More
