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!

There are four things that my wife and I look for in any dining facility - service, quality food, a good wine list and pleasant surroundings and Enoteca Calasto has all of the above. We discovered this place on an evening stroll and thought a glass of wine and a snack would suffice but were more than pleasantly surprised as... More

We had coffee here on our arrival in Lucca, staff were really friendly and we were tempted back by the wine tasting offer later in the day. We were expertly introduced to five delicious local wines, ate tasty food and tried Aperol (not so good!). Lucca is fantastic and so is Enoteca Calasto.

This place is located opposite the Opera house and is a good place to wait while the more civilized attend the hour long show. The drinks were typical Italian and of a good price. What I liked was that they served great snacks, I am not taking peanuts and chips here but a variety of hot savory snacks. The service... More

Arrived there at noon of a saturday, decided to take 3 wines and some appetizer (a selection at 27€). What to say, very disappointed mostly because the quality/price ratio and poor service.

Situated close to the Duomo this lovely little restaurant offered a warm welcome on a rainy night. The service was very friendly and helpful and the lasagne was indeed delicious. Try the selection of local oils and the local Pecorino with chestnuts and honey. $80 for 3 adults and a child with wine. Definitely recommend when you are in Lucca.
