The atmosphere was nice and cosy with good music and good service. The cocktails had a decent taste, but the presentation was horrible. Also the drinks were really small.

Marco the owner is awesome. The drinks were well made and dont be afraid to try something new. Grappa was my choice never heard or seen it in the states. We stayed 5 days in Lucca and ended up here 3 of the 5 nights

Classic and welcoming cocktail bar where we were given a free selection of meats, cheese and bread. The place looks amazing and the staff were very welcoming, it's slightly off the main streets of Lucca and you could easily think you're heading the wrong way...More
