Very Good place for Dinner

Thoroughly enjoyed our supper at Osteria San Giorgio. Started with a salad which was nice & crisp. Also tried the bread lasagna (very rich) and tordelli (local specialty that was great). For dessert had the raspberry tart followed by a lemoncello which ended the evening off perfectly.

You should try the spaghetti with clams! Apart from enjoying spaghetti, we liked the atmosphere in the restaurant (friendly staff & we could communicate very well in English although it was not touristic). Prices have been adequate.

We ate here once during our stay in Lucca on the midlle of JUNE 2015. We set in a very nice courtyard,more Italians than tourists,thankfully.The service was good,not pushy. We ate seafood which was excellent,light and tastey. Not expensive at all. Nice friendly restaurant, very good location.

Great atmosphere, delicious food and good value for money. Also nice terrace. Had beef fiorentina which was perfectly grilled. My girlfriend had the grilled cod which she enjoyed very much as well. For dessert I tried the pannacotta with forrest fruit and my girlfriend the homemade cake. both tasted great.

We had a little wait for a table as they were so busy, which was not a problem. However, once we were seated and had read the menu it was an age before anyone took our order and service was slow. The waitresses were very pleasant but so busy, and there were so many covers that I can only assume... More

Saturday night full house of locals creating a very pleasant atmosphere. Interesting local restaurant with some nice local dishes but not outstanding. Unusually not great house wine.
