My daughter got married around the corner in the beautiful town hall, and then we just sauntered back to the Ristorante Giglio. They were all so friendly. And the location was ideal. We sat on the front balcony by the door at a long table and had a lovely meal and just celebrated.

The birthday cake you claim you requested was indeed mentioned at the end of your prestructured booking request in the format 'Birthday cake (it is my own)' and,... More

We dined here before watching 'The Script' play at the open air concert in the square. The food and service was exquisite. We had the 'set' menu of Brushetta, T-bone steak and lemon pie. The starter and main were definitely so good it was up there with the best.

Your food is cooked to perfection and presented by a well trained wait staff. The interior is air conditioned if you wish to have a atmosphere controlled meal.

We had a wonderful lunch and dinner at Giglio my aspargus pasta was to die for. Each dish was excellent and the wine equally so. Book for dinner to get a good table.
