Difficult to rate this place. Let's do the positives first. Interesting old interior, very atmospheric. Racked our with countless wines, with a wine list to back this up which would take a week to read. Beautiful little garden at the back, shaded with an ancient grapefruit tree - a very romantic place. Simple, decent food at low prices. But....... the... More

My daughter and I are here for 3 months and this is a regular haunt for "apericena" - drinks and "nibbles"/antipasto before dinner. The bar provides the nibbles for free if you buy a drink. There's a great wine selection and a lovely outdoor area covered over with the branches of a giant grapefruit tree. Also a very nice looking... More

I love this place! I came here every day during my stay in Lucca. The staff is friendly, and the wines are delicious. They do a terrific aperitivo, too! Last year was my second summer in Lucca, and I ran into not only some of the same staff and regulars, but also some lovely tourists I'd seen the summer before;... More

After a long and traffic heavy drive from Lake Garda, we checked into our edge of town hotel, squeezed in 40 winks then headed off for a stroll into the walled city. It was raining. My wife & I meandered through the streets, gathering our bearings for the following days assault on Lucca's charms, when we came across Vinarkia. it's... More

We tried the lunchtime menu which was 13€ including a drink. The courtyard was warm but well shaded under a leafy (grapefruit?) tree. The service was very friendly and the food was simple but perfectly cooked (e.g. spaghetti with tomato and basil sauce). Will definitely return

I visited Vinarkia once on my recent holiday in lucca, on the evening of 26th May, unfortunately it was a big disappointment. The 2 waitresses seemed more concerned with chatting to each other and friends than serving customers, I asked for some balsamic vinegar for my bread and olive oil and I`m still waiting. My first course of salad was... More

We had lunch in a pretty garden. We ordered from the fixed price menu of the day (presented in both Italian & English); I ordered tagliatelle with hare (from the English menu) to be presented with tagliatelle ai funghi (mushrooms). When I queried this, I was told there was no such dish as tagliatelle with hare on the menu! The... More

It's the most awful restaurant/bar we had in Italy. The staffs are not friendly at all and the aperitivo bar is in bad quality. The bread is super hard and the food are cold. We came on 7:40, it seems that the food is almost over, and the staffs just add some cookies in.

Our airbnb host recommended Vinarkia to my husband and I as a place to go for a few wines. We loved it here. The bar has great furnishing and atmosphere, the music was excellent, the service was some of the best I've had in Italy and the wine selection was brilliant! Would love to think that we would be back... More
