This restaurant was located in a large square (Piazza Giglio) but seemed quieter and more relaxed than other locations in Lucca. Food was very good quality. My son had rabbit stew which was excellent. I had the fried chicken and mushrooms- would skip that. It was a very pleasant place to spend a few hours in the afternoon relaxing between... More

My spouse and I had dinner here one evening in June 2014. Our hotel recommended it, and we found it to be very good; actually quite elegant. Everything we ordered was very nice. We sat at a table outdoors on a very pleasant evening. The large adjacent piazza was beautiful in the twilight. One of the main complaints I, personally,... More

Truly a wonderful ristorante. The service was excellent... very professional and efficient while being pleasant. The menu was extensive and our food was delicious. The wine list was perfect for our tastes. Not too expensive to enjoy the evening

We visited this resteraunt in the height of summer 2013. The waiter found us a table despite it being a very busy evening. The food is outstanding and the service unquestionable. The surroundings are very grand but this suits the food and the ambiance. Set in a gorgeous piazza where you can sit and eat wonderful food with a glass... More

We arrived and got a very nice table outside on the terrace. We were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco a la casa. We shared the vitello as an antipasti and the truffle spaghetti as a primi. especially the spaghetti was delicious! (What you would expect for 22€) as a secondi we had the guinea fowl and the beef. Both... More

We had seen many very good to excellent reviews of this restaurant and so were keen to book a table. We decided to go for a set menu which, in the end, was not stunning at all and the steak was barely cooked for what was meant to be a medium. The room was lovely and the glass of prosecco... More

Dear Susan F, Thank you for your comment. I am extremelly sorry to hear that you were a bit disappointed by our restaurant. The "tasting Tuscany" menu is thought for those who are fond of T-bone steaks and, as you pointed out, is not elaborate and if anything quite straightforward. The manner we like to cook our meat is perhaps... More

Our meals were all delicious, crispy squid, courgette linguine, T-bone steak, risotto, crispy chicken with artichokes (not great), wine was superb with a huge selection. They have a set menu for the children pizza/pasta with juice and dessert which was helpful. Stunning setting outside, overlooking... More

We felt welcome right from the start. The coperto includes a glass of Prosecco, an amuse bouche of minty pea soup with hazlenuts and lovely bread. what a change from dry Grissini! Service is excellent and attentive. Happy to let me try my Italian but ready to help when I faultered. The food is superb. We went there 3 times... More

We dined at Giglio twice during out stay in Lucca, both times amazing food, wine and service. The second time were during a big concert (Lucca Summer Festival, The Eagles), so the whole city were packed, but the hostess managed to give us a nice table outside. Free prosecco and an amouse bouche, and when we had the bistecca Fiorentina,... More
