Have been coming to lucca for many years and this restaurant is always a good stop. It has always been a favourite of locals especially single retirees who seem to be treated with kindness. I always have a pizza and again it was very good....More

Casual but varied menu with many sophisticated surprises. Here is an opportunity to experience Florentine steak and slow cooked wild boar completely devoid of pretentiousness. The staff are warm, friendly and compassionate towards those ignorant English speaking tourists who can't speak Italian. Clearly I have...More

The Antica Drogheria does not look like a restaurant as it was previously the horse stable from the villa next door! You have to look at the windows to find the menu and then enter the Drogheria itself and ask to eat ("per mangiare"). Then...More

We had a stay in the neighbourhood and they adviced us Drogheria Antica for breakfast. Friendly staff, simply furniture, reasonable quality for a low price.

In this Resto, that used to be a drugstore that opened in 1895, the majority of the people eating are locals. You should go there for the simply prepared food that is a knockout. Four of us went and one of us had the local...More

In the late 1895s, Mr. Guidotti's genius transformed the stables of Villa Bottini in a Drugstore. Since then, there have been plenty of people and illustrious lucchesi, like the Puccini and Luporini masters.
Today, more than one hundred years later, the restaurant preserves its original decor intact and transmits the spirit of the time, the scents and the taste of the lucchese tradition.
For over 10 years we have also a pizzeria with a wood oven and a kitchen where we prepare typical "Lucchesi" dishes, homemade pasta, t-bone Fiorentina steaks, tastes of local salami and special cheeses.
