Do not go past this small, quirky establishment without stopping for a cocktail or a coffee.

Although we have never eaten here ... (why? I don't know - we keep meaning to, but never get 'round to it) ... it will remain my favourite stop in Lucca for all time.

The staff are enigmatic and welcoming ... but as for those cocktails ... just bring me back year after year, at about four in the afternoon and I'll die happy.

We had a 7 Euro lunch of pasta. I had the pesto and my friend a spicy tomato pasta. It was amazing. It was not crowded in the small back room. As most small restaurants in Italy, it did not have AC but a small fan helped. Waiter may also have been chef and was a very handsome man with round eyeglasses and a Dali type of mustache. Very pleasant experience here.

This is a very cosy olde worlde type of cafe/restaurant.Very interesting displays on the shelves.We noticed Walkers shortbread for sale and the tablecloths on the small round tables are tartan.Is there a Scottish connection?Anyway it was a lovely place to have an ice coffee on a very hot day.Friendly man and woman serving the customersWe would like to have food there too but we only had 4 nights and there are so many lovely places to eat at in Lucca and so little time.Next time.Grazie mille.

A great find early evening supper of pasta followed by creme caramel coffee and a bottle of wine. Portions are not large but adequate following a large lunch. All this for €30 makes it inexpensive, we enjoyed sitting among the locals and looking at all the different items on the shelves, a really good atmosphere.

Portion sizes aren't large but neither is the price. Portions are perfect for lunch and we greatly enjoyed a glass of wine and asparagus with speck with pasta all at a reasonable price from friendly helpful staff. The shop is delightful too.
