“Very charming!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Very good restaurant and nice terrace on a piazza far from crowed places.
Lucca is also a very charming city.

We had a lovely lunch at the Enoteca Calastro. The salads were delicious and well presented while the carpacio was of great taste. The service was perfect. I could only highly recommend it!!!!

“Great place and great wine selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here twice for our day in Lucca. We had a nice light lunch with sandwiches and a shared cold meat and cheese platter. All was very tasty. The wine selection was wide ranging and we had a local red for 10€ with a strong sangovoise base. The ony criticism was that whilst the selection of cold meats was exellent it was a bit light on volume for the price. We returned for an excellent sparkling white which was accompanied with stuffed cherry tomatoes, olives and crisps.

“Great location, but avoid for meals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Firstly, on the plus side, this wine bar is in a great location in one of the quieter squares in Lucca. Moreover, the service is fast and efficient and the house white that we sampled, a locally produced Chardonnay, was very good. However, they really should stick to salads and sandwiches and not attempt to offer hot meals. We were disappointed with what we had; the turkey escalope with a few vegetables looked a bit lost on the large plate it was served on and the canelloni was obviously supplied by an outside caterer and then given the microwave treatment. Also, the tables for two outside are so small that any sudden movement could result in your lunch hitting the ground.
Finally, a word of warning, this place closes at 9:30, so don't count on coming here for a glass or two after your evening meal.

We just walked past this little cafe. The waiter was incredibly welcoming and nothing was too hard. Lovely cafe, great food and a cute atmosphere
