Wonderful little specialty shop!!!
Nov 2019 • Friends
We stopped in after lunch in Lucca for some Limoncello and olive oil. The owner was running the shop and couldn’t have been more helpful!!! Gave samples of anything we asked about. My Mother in-law picked up a very nice bottle of olive oil and I got a beautiful 10 year balsamic. It was exactly the type of shop we were looking for!!! If you are in Lucca, stop by. You will not be disappointed!!!

The best tasting experience in Lucca
Oct 2019 • Couples
Alain arranged a wine/ food pairing experience for 3 couples from Canada. It was brilliant. His knowledge combined with quality wines, oils, vinegars and truffles , made for an unforgettable experience in Lucca. He put his heart into the presentation. I highly recommend a trip to his store.

Bought an excellent Chianti today. Lovely man owns the shop. No hard sell and great conversation. Recommended if you fancy some good wine or olive oil to take home

Alain knows his french rugby -- bravo
Oct 2018 • Couples
Read about other reviews, so had to visit this little gem on Via San Paolino - practically a stone's throw from our bnb. Great conversation on french rugby and Stade Toulousain. Not forgetting of course the excellent extra virgin olive oils! Tasted a couple. Not being an expert, couldn't differentiate a great deal between them but without a doubt better than those commercial brands back home. The truffle on a small biscotto he let us try was... mamma mia 👍👍👍 He packed a couple of bottles we bought in bubble wrap. Fingers crossed it survives the long flight home. Buon lavoro / bon boulot, Alain! E allez Toulouse!!

Popped into this little shop just to browse but got talking with the French owner Alain who invited us to have a taste of anything that was open. The wines, vinegar and truffles we tasted were superb. Ended up buying some wine which we drank on the balcony of our hotel that night, and some 12 year old balsamic vinegar which tasted divine, can't wait to get it home to try it on some nice tomatoes or strawberries. The shop is an Aladdins cave of traditional Italian foodstuffs and I would highly recommend a visit. I will regularly check his website in future for anything new and/or interesting as he ships goods all over the world.

Excellent shop for truffles & olive oil
Jul 2017 • Friends
This shop has high-quality, fine Italian delicacies that we craved- truffles, wines, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and don't miss the truffle spread! The shop owner is very knowledgeable and helpful and lets you taste anything possible. He shipped gifts to Finland for us, all organized when we were back in the USA by email and telephone. Stop in for a fun visit and excellent products and service.

Must stop for foodies
Apr 2016 • Family
We found this shop accidentally while wandering through the lovely streets of Lucca. I'm so glad we stopped to look. The owner of the shop is wonderful - very knowledgable, very friendly, and absolutely fluent in English. He let us taste several fabulous olive oils and wines. Once he got a feeling for what we liked he was able to guide us to some superb choices, but he was very low pressure. Also, he didn't try to lead us to buy the most expensive items.
We didn't buy much because it was early in our trip and we were very worried about space. I didn't realize he shipped or I would have gone crazy here!
If you love foods and wines, this is a must visit!

Love!

We found this place on Trip Advisor and decided to stop by. It's is a cute little shop in the heart of Lucca. The owner is great and we spent about an hour chatting with him. He let us try three day old olive oil, multiple balsamic vinegars, truffle spreads, wine and chocolate. He has a great selection and plenty of smaller items for gifts. Everything is very well priced and he will arrange shipping for you. Love it!

Loved shopping in this wonderful shop in Lucca...purchased several bottles of wine and had shipped back to my home. My friends have certainly enjoyed each one as we have used them on a special occasion. Look forward to ordering more great items.

Best shop in Lucca!
May 2015 • Couples
We visited this charming shop just a week ago and spent time with Alain tasting various products. Alain has an excellent selection of many Italian goods and is so knowledgeable about everything in his shop. We wanted to send some olive oil and balsamic vinegar home and Alain made this so easy. When we arrived home, our package was waiting for us. We now can continue to enjoy the best that Italy has to offer. Spending time with Alain was delightful and we will add his shop to our "must do list" for our next visit to Italy.
