Beautiful dining in historic tuscany

Had the most amazing meal, the guinea fowl was moist and succulent and had perfectly crispy skin. The tomato and burgatta cheese spaghetti was to die for. Came here with a sitting of seven people and everyone loved their meals. The service was great and we were provided complimentary limoncello... read more

Had the most amazing meal, the guinea fowl was moist and succulent and had perfectly crispy skin. The tomato and burgatta cheese spaghetti was to die for. Came here with a sitting of seven people and everyone loved their meals. The service was great and we were provided complimentary limoncello at the end. Loved it!

The food and the service were excellent. Staff were more accommodating to foreigners than most places, yet were able to stay true to their traditions.

Restaurant chosen by organizer of a group of twenty. Good food and good service (not always achieved as sometimes groups are left behind individual diners). Intended to go back as a couple but so many other restaurants in Lucca.

We thought this was supposed to be an upscale, delicious place to eat. While it is pricey enough to be upscale, the service was horrible. It took over an hour to get our first course with no apologies from the staff. We ran out of wine and water!! The food was only so-so, very lacking in flavor. I had the... More

This traditional restaurant serves excellent food in a beautifull Tuscan dining room. Also terrace facing Piazza Giglio. The staff is very professional and friendly. You better reserve a table since it is a populair place. Not cheap, but good value for money.

We had dinner here on a couple of occasions whilst staying in Lucca. We found the service and atmosphere to be very pleasant and the food to be exceptional. We tasted scallops, sea bass and T-bone steak all of which were fantastic and cooked to perfection. But if you decide to eat here please try the crispy octopus starter -... More

Not an intimate style of restaurant, but very pleasant surroundings and decor. Try the veal cheek as a main course. Very succulent and rich. Good selection of wine at decent prices. Recommended.

My husband and I enjoyed our meals at Ristorante Giglio very much. We went there for lunch and then again dinner the next night. The price was very fair, the service and the meals were excellent. We would return again on our next trip to Lucca. The house made Ravioli is a must, and we were happy with other dishes... More

Having not seen a review of this restaurant on Trip Advisor we had no idea what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised. The place oozes quality and you are pampered with an attentive level of service from the moment you walk through the door. The food quality is excellent and there is a good choice on the menu....

One of two really fabulous restaurants where we dined in Lucca. Excellent food, excellent service, reasonable prices. A good destination for a special meal.
