We read the reviews about this place, and thought we'd give it a try for lunch. The pasta dishes were small and overpriced, and so was the wine. When the bill came, we had been charged 2 euros each cover charge, which is expensive for Lucca, but they hadn't even brought us any bread. We only noticed the charge as... More

A few locals recommended us this place and were definitely right! At time of booking we were told they only had room inside so I was a bit skeptic as the day had been extremely hot. The air-conditioning gave us a welcomed relief! The owner was extremely kind and exhaustive in explaining the different dishes: we tried the "zuppa al... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the manager of our Lucca Bed and Breakfast, Alla Dimora Lucense. Osteria San Giorgio is a small restaurant which was filled with locals that rainy evening. Our group of 5 started with an appetizer of goat cheese stuffed zucchini which was delicious. I had the mixed fried seafood with fried zucchini which was... More

We had a lovely lunch here on a hot June day. The courtyard was shady and inviting. For around 40 Euros, the two of us had one beer, half a litre of lovely white house wine, a crostini platter, gnocchi ragu and spaghetti amatriciana. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the quality of the food was high. They kindly allowed... More

We had a lovely meal, sitting outside. Service was good and although we declined dessert, we were brought a lovely after dinner drink on the house.

Went with a tour group of 15. Ordered from a selected menu. Small wait staff of two supplemented by assistance from owner adequately covered the whole place. Have learned that food in Italy takes time to prepare. the grilled pork was tasty but some pieces were fatty. All meals and courses were well presented. Wine selection was good and fairly... More

The restaurant is crowded with tables, but the atmosphere is so Italian relaxed that it is enjoyable. The food is really good.
