good pastry, expensive, not friendly

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... read more

This great place was established in 1881 and since then it is firmly in the same square, with no other shops in town. We had beautiful marron glacé (it was December), delicious and large, and we bought the famous sweet from Lucca called Buccellato, a sort of sweet bread with raisins (first quality raisins to be accurate). There is also... More

If you want to eat an authentic Italian "cake". The buccelato is it. This consists of a around type of panettone with raisins inside. The consistency is like bread. It is great for dipping in your morning cafe late. This place is known for the buccelato and they have been doing it for over 50 years. I used come here... More

When I was a little girl my mother would take me into Lucca on the back of her bike. If we were lucky we would stop at Taddeucci and get one of their famous BUCCELATTI (BUCCELLATTO SINGULAR). It is still the best in town for this traditional Lucchese sweet bread which enriched with anise and orange rind and made in... More

We happened on this place after a circuit of the walls and a stroll through the splendid centre of Lucca. Just what was needed - excellent coffee and the signature pastry. Obviously popular with local people as well as tourists. Deservedly successful.

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.

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
