If the throng of tourists gets to much head to this place. Specialises in local wines and good simple food. If you order a spirit and mixer you receive a glass 3/4 full of spirit and the can of mixer for a cheaper price than most other places (that give you a lot less spirit). Great friendly staff.

Lovely little wine bar with great food. We wanted to avoid the touristy restaurants for lunch and found what we were looking for in this place. Great service, had the special of the day which was pork (superb) and the local wine recommended by the wonderful waitress. Couldn't fault anything with the food or service.

We lunched here on our first day in Lucca, and enjoyed it so much that we returned the next day. My tagliatelle con funghi (pasta with mushrooms) was superb - or "divine" as my wife said when she tasted it. At €11 the first day, and €9 as a daily special the next day, it was outstanding value for money.
You can eat inside or out; we enjoyed being on the terrace. A good selection of local wines by the glass, carafe or bottle. Bilingual service on day 1, perfectly adequate English on day 2.
Strongly recommended.

We arrived late in Lucca, were looking for a simple late lunch and hit upon this little wine bar. It specialises in local Lucca wine and olive oil. The local vermentino we drank was cold and refreshing, perfect for an August afternoon. The waitress/owner was very knowledgable and helpful, the food simple but good. It sits on a pretty piazza where you can watch the world go by. We also got some general advice about Lucca which was very helpful.

we took lunch in this wine/food bar. Nice service by the staff. The food was ok but not extra ordinary. It was a nice calm atmosphere and view on the terrace.
