I think Buca di Sant'Antonio is the finest restaurant in the incredible city of Lucca. This town is my favourite in Tuscany, a magical one, surrounded by ancient walls. This excellent lunch preceded a trip to see Elton John live at the Lucca Summer Festival and visit our friend, his amazing drummer, Nigel Olsson. This is a traditional Italian establishment and serves delicious Tuscan food.

A first course of some truffle pasta.

Veal for the main course.

Green apple sorbet for pudding.
