A great lunch in a wonderful town!

The best lunch we had in all of Italy! The atmosphere is lovely. We ate outside (my favorite!) after parking our rented bikes. We were seated promptly, and my husband had risotto with oranges, fennel, celery root, and garlic (oh my!) and I had gnocchi with broccoli and red pepper (which I had... read more

We're returning to Osteria San Giorgio for the third time tonight during our stay in Lucca. It was recommended by a local friend and has proved to be a very friendly restaurant with great food. Just read all the reviews! Except for one cheap Brit who thinks it's expensive, which it's not and doesn't understand that a small "coperto" is... More

Whenever in Lucca for the first time, try to eat first here. Uber-value for the money, Incredible quality of food, friendly staff, remarkable house wine, reasonably crowded. I'm here to confirm: seafood pasta have one of the best balanced taste that I have had, seafood tempura is a dish you would not expect here but is good enough to make... More

We've travelled all over Lucchesia and have been spoiled by their opulent and elegant cuisine. OSG impressed us because it is kind of a classic, in a good way, retro. Really good food, great pasta courses, and excellent value. Would definitely recommend it for those who want to remember what Lucca was like in the old days. The service was... More

I moved to Lucca on the third of January and being only 500m from my apartment, it was an easy choice for somewhere to eat when I didn't fancy cooking. I have subsequently taken 5 colleagues here on two occasions and every visit has been wonderful. From a starter of the local barley and bean soup through spaghetti alle vongole,... More

We arrived in Lucca on an Italian holiday and were looking for somewhere to eat. As a party of 5, we were happy to find the Osteria open and able to accommodate us. My husband had the gnocchi with mushrooms and it was magnificent. My FIL had the Papa all Pomodoro, which was amazing. The rest of the food we... More

This is for me THE best seafood inside the Lucca walls. Great service, great winelist, great food,- and not expensive! If the weather is good, you´ll have a wonderful time sitting outside, if not, it´s just as nice inside! Try it! P.S! It is not just a seafood restaurant, but the seafood is nice there. They also do all kinds... More

Service was good, setting was sheltered outdoors which while off a narrow street gave a romantic secluded feel to the establishment. The food was excellent!! Highly recommend the tempura seafood and vegetable plate.
