Just before I left Italy I discovered a lovely new place for coffee, gelato and a snack in Lucca. Ristori takes its name from the perfume store it replaced in the main street, Via Filungo, between Via Buia and Via San Giorgio.
The long, narrow shop has been lovingly restored. You can stand at the tiny bar for your coffee or sit at one of the tables.
I can report that the coffee is very good. I didn’t try the cakes, but I will next time. They look delicious.
I need to try the gelato as well…all in the name of research, of course.
There are a couple of tables tucked in a little corner at the back of the shop.
I think Ristori is a great addition to Via Filungo.
Take a look at their Facebook page.
