“Read the menu carefully!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stopped here for coffee and pastries upon arriving in Lucca. I actually ordered fresh squeezed lemonade (or so I thought!) I took a sip only to discover that I Ctually ordered fresh squeezed lemon JUICE! Wow, that was a surprise, after a whole bottle of water and about 6 sugar packets I actually had a very nice lemonade but getting there was trip! Others had coffees and we all had pastries or sandwiches which were good.

Great peoplewatching spot, but skip the bathrooms. GROSS.

“Great bar for snacks and drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

This has to be the best little bar in San Gimignano, Patricia and Carla the owners are so friendly and welcoming we actually get upset when we say good bye on our last night here. We have been going to this lovely little bar for years now and always enjoy the banter about football with Luca Carla's husband. The quality of drinks is excellent the prices are very reasonable. They are centrally placed opposite the church. They do great brunches snacks nibbles etc. This is our favourite place to go for pre dinner drinks. We have ALWAYS been treated so well we feel like part of the family. They even try to help you with your Italian, we see a number of regular visitors when we go each year. This tells you that they get it right. We can't wait to go back next year and continue our Italian lessons and to argue about football (in a very friendly way)

“Bad attitude”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Like other reviewers have commented, customer service appears to be something they haven't heard about here. Rude staff, poor service, high prices. Avoid until staff retrained!

“A great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

This restaurant is a great place to eat. It has good food, an excellent and very friendly service and is located at the heart of the town. A perfect place to rest the feet and watch the everyday life of this small and beautiful town.

This is a gem of a place in the magical San Gimignano, opposite the church this great bar , which offers great wines beers and lovely food. Prepared daily and served with a smile and friendliness we have come to love about this great town. The owners are lovely people, engage Luca on the subject of football he has a passion..Patricia and Carla are always there with a smile, one of our favourite stop off points most days...Well worth a visit..
