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.

A smiley lady in fabulous shoes helped us choose some tiny cakes and her willingness to assist us with translations of some of the ingredients made it easier for us to avoid things we didn't like. We had the cakes and coffees (they do decaf if you're looking for it) outside in the bustling piazza. This was a very pleasant... More

This is a good spot to visit for an espresso and one of the many traditional sweets on offer. The 'ugly but beautiful biscuits' made from hazelnuts are delicious.

This is the "old" bakery in town and perfectly located on the backside of Michele Square. It is a beautiful shop with a number of pastries and candies to choose from. I have bought small amounts of things to try but it is quite expensive - 8 euro for a sampling of chocolates. And you can only buy the buccelatto... More

buccellato is one of the best in town, pity that the price was rather hefty and therefore, though good, for what i paid not better than another few bakeries in town. It as also dark and poorly lit inside, and the staff are not much when it comes to customer care, quite arrogant and lack in politesse, and one gets... More

I have been popping in here every 2 days during my 3 week stay in Lucca. All of it is delicious. I kept going too late to get a Buccelatto until last week but boy it was worth it!! The treccia is just as divine, if not nicer.........almost had heart failure at 10 euro price but well worth it and... More

This is a great little place to stop in and buy some buccellato then relax in Piazza San Michele while enjoying some fabulous buccellato.
