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.

This restaurant is a hidden gem off of the main walkways of Lucca. Myself and the other two people in my lunch party raved about the quality of the food. The service was great and the food was even better. The prices were extremely reasonable. I would recommend finding this restaurant as it the food is excellent and it is... More

The restaurant is a bit tucked away on a side street Lucca but well worth your hunt. We enjoyed a great meal, good wine and plenty of laughts.

An example of how good ratings from travellers can make a restaurant to loose its grip and become too self-assured. The restaurant being full is no excuse for unattentive service and making customers to hurry up. The head waiter should know the content of the wine list and be able to make recommendations. The quality of the food should be... More

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 some pretty serious risotto envy). My boys... 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
