Restaurant Antica Drogheria in Lucca, Italy

Restaurant Antica Drogheria is located in Lucca, Italy, we discovered this restaurant by accident, just shortly checked in at Albergo Celide hotel and decided to make an evening walk beyond Lucca's city wall.

And here it was - another great Italian restaurant located on  Via Elisa, 5.

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

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!
