Great food in a fabulous position on the city wall. Extensive menu with something for everyone. BEST pizza I've ever had and amazing salads. Service was good and the inside is air conditioned if it's just too hot outside. Very stylish surroundings.

We were exhausted after our day in Florence, but were well looked after with an outside table. There were two big groups coming in, but the service was very good in spite of our lack of Italian. The food and wine was delicious, and a very convenient spot, as our car was in an all-day spot at the train station.

Great and fast service, wide range of easy food and drink, quick service. Great place for breakfast or lunch after biking the ramparts or lazy drinks in the afternoon shade

Our early-morning start from Florence meant that after the 90 minute train ride to Lucca, we were all in 'need' of a good coffee before walking the 4 kilometres of walls. Thankfully, Caffetteria San Colombano is perfectly situated at the top of the wall, just right of the top of the stairs (with the station behind you) closest to the... More

We had lunch, sharing Ravioli Lucchese with meat sauce, Baked roast suckling pig with roast potato and vegetables and Duck, guinea fowl, rabbit and turkey stew with vegetables. The latter dishes were slow cooked, tender and delicious, just as I imagined Italian food to be. Gluten free bread and pasta available along with menu selections. Friendly service in a modern...

We've now been here twice. First just for coffee. We liked the atmosphere so we went for a second time. This time for dinner. The personnel was really kind and helpful in picking the meals we liked. We went for the following antipasti: fried pecorrino and carpachio from three kinds of fish. The main courses were: entrecote with unions and... More

Told waiter and he brought out a tomato... More

We opted to eat from the lunch menu and we were so pleased we made that choice. Whilst the choice was limited what was there hit the mark. Two of us went for the pasta with salami and blue cheese sauce. It was great. The vegetable risotto went down well as did the ravioli with cod and leek. It was... More

A good choice - you can choose from a snack or ice cream right through to fine dining. Perfect location if you are visiting the cathedral, the botanical gardens or are making your way around the medieval rampart walls.
