Lucca Food and Restaurants

Since Lucca is a wealthy gastronomic centre, it has some very high quality restaurants. However, there are many eating places to suit all people and all budgets; it's a real delight to pick and choose where to eat.

Local specialities for the area include: Zuppa di Faro - a thick grain soup; Capretto - roast mountain goat; Castagnaccio - desserts based on chestnut flour
