We enjoyed this coffe house but found the service to be a bit slow. It is in a nice piazza and serves nice cakes and pastries so a good place to sit if you are not in a rush

In doing research for visit to Italy, we read that the Taddeucci Pasticcerria is THE place to purchase the local traditional bread loaf called buccellato ( a wonderful bread consisting of raisins/currants and a subtle taste of anise). What a beautiful shop! This was one of those places I wished I could have shopped, sampled and stayed longer. The bread... More

Not really a restaurant but definitely a great place for a coffee and cake/biscuits etc. They have a lot of Lucca specialities - biscuits as well as the buccaletto mentioned here in other reviews. There is an outside area for 'sit down' coffee etc or you could mix it with the locals at the bar at the back of the... More

Great coffee (try caffee corretto) and pastries. The place is small so tables are only outside on the plaza, yet the interior is old and cute.

There were a huge variety of pastries here. We tried several, but our favorite was the buccaletto which is a regional pastry only found in Lucca. It's very rich and filled with raisins and anise. I think it was 9 euros for a loaf that we took back to our hotel and polished off the next morning. Delicious! The woman... More

This great place was established in 1881 and since then it is firmly in the same square, with no other shops in town. We had beautiful marron glacé (it was December), delicious and large, and we bought the famous sweet from Lucca called Buccellato, a sort of sweet bread with raisins (first quality raisins to be accurate). There is also... More

If you want to eat an authentic Italian "cake". The buccelato is it. This consists of a around type of panettone with raisins inside. The consistency is like bread. It is great for dipping in your morning cafe late. This place is known for the buccelato and they have been doing it for over 50 years. I used come here... More

When I was a little girl my mother would take me into Lucca on the back of her bike. If we were lucky we would stop at Taddeucci and get one of their famous BUCCELATTI (BUCCELLATTO SINGULAR). It is still the best in town for this traditional Lucchese sweet bread which enriched with anise and orange rind and made in... More

We happened on this place after a circuit of the walls and a stroll through the splendid centre of Lucca. Just what was needed - excellent coffee and the signature pastry. Obviously popular with local people as well as tourists. Deservedly successful.
