Do not visit Lucca without having dinner here. The food, the service, the ambience all make this a very special experience and at very reasonable prices. We shared the Caprese, and the ravioli bolognese; to die for! I had the Lucchese Macaroni with Porcini - over the moon- and the husband had the veal cheeks; tender and delicious. Staff is... More

Visited Ristorante Giglio last night for dinner with my family, and we all loved it. Free prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch, and the service was polite and quick while also being unobtrusive. The menu was a perfect length, long enough for there to be multiple tasty looking options, but short enough to signify that the chefs knew what... More

Beautiful restaurant situated on a nice piazza in the heart of Lucca. The food is classic Tuscan. We ate here two times and during our stay in Lucca. The spaghetti with rabbit sauce is splendid! As the guinea fowl! The wine list is huge! Staff is friendly and very professional. Don't miss this place if you're in Lucca!

Can highly recommend L'Imbuto. The restaurant, has outdoor seating on a beautiful square, so as the night was warm, our group of 8 booked a table outside. We selected a variety of dishes from the interesting modern Italian menu, every dish was beautifully presented and the food was absolutely delicious. The floor staff were all helpful, friendly and well trained.... More

We had an outstanding dinner at Giglio, from service to food to atmosphere... You name it, it was such a good surprise. I strongly recommend for a food experience in the local cuisine with local service and people full of joy from there!

The restaurant is beautiful and fancy. The service is superb. The food is local and very tasty. We had risotto and pasta with side dish of spinach with butter. All was great and we enjoyed it.

Walking in Lucca, we literally stumbled across this plaza and park. Realizing quickly this was a restaurant where more locals ate (you didn't hear English speakers - a good sign) we decided to try it. Located across the street from the Teatro Comunale, this small restaurant can be found within a 1500's Palazzo. With tables laid out in the plaza... More

We booked this restaurant on our way to the Puccini concert, no prior emails or booking months in advance no issues maybe we got lucky. An hour later after the concert we were shown to our table outside in the courtyard and we certainly had one of our better meals in Italy at this restaurant. The food and the service... More

We visited Giglio with high expectations based on recommendations from friends and Tripadvisor reviews and high price level. Unfortunately we were not happy. The service is very good, people are nice but they don't deliver what is expected. First we used their website to book a table for the next day but they never confirmed!! We asked for still water...
