Oh man I miss this place. Great place to grab sandwiches to start the day. Very friendly to my wife and I. All ingredients were very fresh. Wish our arugula tasted that fresh in the states.

Read all the positive reviews and thought I would give it a try but I was very disappointed with the Lunch Box panini I ordered. The bread was stale. It had a generous portion of ham but not enough sun-dried tomatoes to add any flavour...More

We were so happy to find this place and get a great healthy salad for lunch. The coffee is also good. Most people got the sandwiches so I'm sure they are also really good. It's very small inside but they have a few outdoor seats...More

I like the idea of being able to customize your salad. Not easy to find a reasonable price for dinner in Vernazza, so what I did is got the pesto lasagna, a salad, and a beer from the Lunch Box. It was 17 euros I...More

The place is very well located. You can seat inside or outside in the bar. It has a variety of pre-selected focaccias but you can also make your own. All the ingredients looked fresh and were full of flavour. The service was also very good....More

We are looking for a gluten free birthday dessert / cake and gluten free food. Does Lunch Box offer a variety of gluten free items and gluten free desserts?

You can ask, but I don't think they have many sweets. Try Il Pirata. They specialize in pastries. The owner was very nice and may have some good suggestions. Lunch box is closer to a jamba juice in USA. Good luck!!!
Do you have a gluten free menu? Are theren extensive gluten free options? If not, could you recommend a restaurant with gluten free options?

I don't know if The Lunch Box specifically has a gluten free menu but I did notice that many restaurants in Europe are quite proactive in providing gluten free dishes. I've lived here for 5 years and I have friends have... More
