The Ristorante Caffetteria San Colombano was built inside the ancient homonymous rampart on the urban walls of Lucca, by restoring the existent structure of the tower and creating functional spaces without interfering with the pre-existing walls; the Ristorante Caffetteria San Colombano thus becomes a meeting place, an open air museum, a defence rampart, as well as a resting place and a shelter. It produces a special atmosphere, a mixture of sensations generated by the co-existence of new and old.
Surrounded by this magical atmosphere you will be able to enjoy a surreal view produced by the contrasting effects of daylight and evening lights which render the San Martino Cathedral particularly fascinating. Thanks to the structure of the restaurant, designed with French windows, during the summer you will be able to enjoy the pleasant breeze typical of the Walls while comfortably sitting at your table.
