Stopped for a late lunch, lasagna is excellent. The plates of cold cuts, cheese and wine, ample and pretty good. Good value for what you get. Paninis are pretty good too. A few steps away from piazza di San Martino and its duomo.

Upon arriving in Lucca, we were told by our hotel staff (and many other online google searches), that there were not any wine tastings within the walls of Lucca. Not wanting to get back in the car and drive to Monte Carlo immediately after arriving, we decided to explore inside Lucca regardless. What we found was this lovely little place,... More

We visit twice. Easy to do because we lived right next door for a week. Fantastic food, friendly service, relaxing atmosphere.

We ate in the terrace of this small Enoteca, just beside the Duomo Piazza. It was a very nice lunch with bruschettas as antipasti and good pici (local hand-made pasta), again. Reasonable price and good service

We can really recommend Enoteca Calasto for tasting of local wines. The staff is knowledgable and if you find a wine of your liking, it is possible to buy it on site. Next time we will try their olive oil tasting as well!

We were lucky enough to be staying 2 doors away from this excellent wine bar for a week in July. Serving simple but delicious food the bar is small but very welcoming. The wine waiter, Emmanuelle, is very knowledgable about the local wines and the 5 wines for 12 euro offer (3-5pm) is a treat not to be missed. Highly... More

The closest taverna to the S. Giovanni church where the permanent Puccini festival is held. Good wine, cheese and pastrami but the walnuts served were not fresh and the waiter did not really address the complaint.

Had wine before Puccini recital and they provided tasty snacks alongside. We then returned for supper afterwards. Nice friendly atmosphere and food was very tasty - recommend as a little quieter than some of tge other Piazzas. They also do wine and olive tasting menus,good way to try local products.

After a morning of shopping in Lucca, we scouted out this place after seeing it highly recommended on TripAdvisor. A special place in a quieter area of the walled city. Great food, service, location, and a lovely place!
