Outstanding tart

We carried out a fraise du bois (wild strawberry) tart and it was exemplary: thin, crispy shell, good pastry cream and those wonderfully fragrant wild strawberries.

We had our breakfast there around 10. Honestly we didn't like it under the shadow, but I read comment is good, I checked inside it seems good, so we give it a try. I had bread with raisin, my friend had a croissant and rice pudding, all are very good. But it's quite expensive, tea 3euro each, crossant, rice pudding... More

Every town in Tuscany, and maybe even in all of Italy, has a pastry, bread or cake which is local to that town and which is special. In Lucca that bread is the Buccellato, which is sweet bread made with anise and raisins. Taddeucci, which is on Piazza San Michele, the main square in Lucca, is reputed to be the... More

I would fly back to Italy and stop in Luca just for their buccellato. My husband and I got one and were going to save half for the train ride back but that didn't happen. Seriously, how could bread with raisins and anise be so addictive. I want one now, and tomorrow, and the day after. Thanks to Trip Advisor... More

Having 16 nights in Lucca, we cycled here each morning from our Anfiteatro apartment (Italian Apartments Collection) to have our coffee and cornetti. Coffee is great and crema cornetti are delicious. It is a little more expensive than some of the other local cafes, but sooooo very fresh and sooooo deliciously good. It is also the home of the famous... More

We tried the buccellato. Kinda expensive for a sweet loaf of bread baked with raisins and aniseeds. Cost E4.50 for 300g the smallest that we can get to try. The bread was kinda hard and dry. There were only 2 staff working, one was busy making coffee and another manning the cash register. The cappuchino was not bad. Locals come... More

Great place to try il buccellato, a typical sweet cake filled with raisins and aniseed, that is only made in Lucca. Recommended.

My husband and I could not stay away from this place!! We came back multiple times to this cafe after trying other recommended spots for our morning cafe and cornetti, but this was, by far, the best. The cappuccino was delicious and HOT which stood it out above the rest. The cornetti a la creme was DELICIOUS!!!! The creme was... More

Waited about ten minutes before order was taken,we had two caffe latte which were lukewarm, two tortes that didn't come with coffee,I had to go in and order them again.The chocolate tasted like it was days old, the apple was just OK. Don't waste you time. There are much better and friendlier coffee shops in Lucca.
