We had to wait for about some 10 minutes to get a free table (seems this place is extremely popular), by waiting for a free place we ordered a cappuccino in the restaurant's anteroom
Comes with a very low price here - just EUR 1 for a cup of cappuccino (although it's everywhere cheap in Italy)

The Bottom Line
Antica Drogheria is a place which will always associate me with Lucca. I haven't checked other dining places in Lucca, but I feel this is among the best for sure. Prices are medium-budget, we spent about EUR 40 here for pizza's, antipasti, cappuccino's and even pasta's. Once in Lucca, Italy - try this place, and leave me a comment afterward!
