Great lunch stop with an interesting selection of paninis, brioche, bruschetta and salads. Edison beer definitely worth a try. Very popular and unfortunately they are not really geared up for the numbers so the wait for food can be longer than reasonable. That said it was worth the wait.

My husband and I called in on a busy Saturday in November and, on seeing the long queue, debated whether we would wait or not for a table. However, after reading excellent reviews about the cafe I dug my heels in and we stayed. As it was, the queue quickly moved along and after 10 minutes we had a table... More

Have visited Cafe Lucca numerous times. Nearly always stop here for lunch or mid-morning coffee when in Bath. They do wonderful, fresh and tasty food, amazing cakes and excellent coffee. This is a great place to catch up with friends or family or for a pit-stop whilst shopping. The surroundings are roomy, elegant and stylish; quite unique in concept. This... More

Stumbled upon this during a weekend of visiting overpriced over complicated food outlets in the west country. This place is the exception to the rule. Good ingredients, put together with care and priced sensibly. Salads were fresh and enjoyable, my individual chicken pie was near perfect. Service was exactly that, took the order and brought the food in good time... More

food is very good but they simply are not organised enough to handle the rush. Expect a random wait for a table, long wait for service and food that looks a bit rushed. They should slow down and treat the customers with a bit more respect. You will leave re-fuelled but really there is no charm, connection or memories of... More

Hi I think charm service and memory is why Lucca is so busy. We have a huge local following and have grown to capacity in. a very short time . Sadly our kitchen is very small so we cope well considering we can do five hundred customers on a Saturday lunch. I am proud of my wonderful staff and they... More

We entered looking for a coffee & a cake but saw the menu & stayed for lunch. Coffee was good but the quiche was delicious with very tasty salad on the side. Service was exemplary too so would recommend.

Went as a group of 6, all left with the same feelings that there was nothing wrong with the food but it was very overpriced for what it was. Worse place to go but countless better in bath. Service was good.

Came for lunch and didn't have to queue too long for a table. It's a busy cafe with lots of tables but the waitresses all clearly know what their tasks are and it is all very efficient. I had the scotch egg with two salads and my boyfriend had the goats cheese and artichoke brucetta. Both were excellent. Lovely coffee... More
