Within the Piazza there are lots of cafes and restaurants making it a great place to stop for a drink or meal in the sun. The food places are geared up to tourists, which doesn't suit everyone, but the food we had was lovely and not very expensive. Definitely recommend stopping off here and taking in the views of the...

....but average for food . Targeting tourists and there is really no excuse - ever - for average food in Italy . Suggest you grab a beer or cocktail and people watch , then go one street back for great good .

Nice location but the restaurants are aimed at tourists euros not necessarily quality. Lots of shopping around the outside and great for people watching.

We wandered here, bought a gelato and sat on a bench watching people come and go. Some nice restaurants, shops, cafes and gelateries and lovely buildings with great photo opportunities.

Easy to miss, as the outside gives no clue of the amazing inside - a full circle of lovely old buildings with shops and restaurants. Wander round slowly, drinking in the atmosphere and maybe buy a couple of gifts and have a coffee.

Beautiful square characterized by narrow entrances in comparison with typical squares of other cities; The only negative note is the presence of many infrastructures for restaurants or other uses that cover most of the square penalizing it a lot.

Visiting Lucca is not possible without visiting this square. Nice location and great atmosphere. Historical and good for City walks.

A central square bordered by a wide range of bars and restaurants adding a sense of atmosphere to the whole location. You must visit during your stay.

A perfect place to spend a sunny lunchtime. All the restaurants seemed busy and after a nice glass of vino (or 2) it was very easy to visualise the amphitheatre's original use - cue my best Russell Crowe impersonation!

A beautiful bustling piazza. It's a bit difficult to find, but sometimes the search is half the fun. The amphitheater is surrounded by beautiful shops, restaurants, and bars. Plan on spending some time here, and you'll want to take lots of photos.
