During visits to Lucca over the past 15 years, we have called in to L'Angolo Dolce whenever we have had the opportunity. For the increasing number of tourists, this is a culinary gem that unfortunately they will usually miss - while it's only a 5-minute stroll up Borgo Giannotti, outside the walls. Sandra, her family and staff always offer a... More

This is a great option for breakfast, either sweet or salty: the pastries are perfect, the sandwiches varied and tasty, the coffee up to italian standard. Great atmosphere, recommended=9/10.

I have been living in Lucca part time for many years now~I have never come across a pasticceria that even comes close to Sandra's!! Everything she makes is not only a work of art, but delicious ~ she is a true culinary artist. Absolutely the best cappuccino, cornetto and pastries and panini I have ever had. Everyone is so friendly... More

Sandra, the owner is amazing. I have asked for a delivery to my friend in Lucca, without much incentive besides the name and address, she presented an amazing cake in her decorative expertise! My friend LOVED it! The cake was scrumptious. Just enough pastry, not overly sweet, the texture is sturdy but melts in your mouth kind. The aroma it... More

I went there to have breakfast with a couple of friends since it was one of my mates' birthday and we really enjoyed it. It's a tiny place, really small, but the staff is very kind and friendly and the pastries are excellent. Haven't tried the cakes and pies but they looked delicious. Amazing.

A big surprise in a the small town of Pescia! Visit L'Angolo Dolce di Sandra is just feeling her kindness and, also, her father's (Moreno) kindness. The place is very nice, clean and quiet. There, you can eat very good pastry that will help you to enjoy Tuscany. Congratulations for such a nice place and atmosphere!

I live between Lucca, New York and London. Every time I visit (often) I say "this could be in the best location anywhere in the world". Sandra is an excellent pastry chef and delights with her morning pastries, small cakes and desserts. The sandwiches and coffee are excellent as well. Lately she is very conscious of healthy eating (maybe she... More
