Semi-formal ambiance with chandeliers, artwork. The cuisine is typical Luccan cuisine, well-prepared and presented. The ricotta/artichoke tart appetizer, the tortellini in brodo soup and the tortelli pasta were superb. Excellent wine list.

Had dinner here last week with friends and were blown away by the decadent decor and the great food. Not to mention the perfect service. Would highly recommend the wild boar pasta and the pannacotta.

This was our last meal before heading home the next morning. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. It closes after the last lunch crowd and it reopens for dinner at 7PM. The food quality was excellent and you would expect for the prices to be high but were not , surprisingly low for such an excellent location in... More

This restaurant served some of the very best food we had in Lucca, but the servers were sometimes less than kind. For some reason, when we asked for a table the restaurant owner had to argue with the host to give us one, though there was clearly a table available. That vibe continued through the evening, which was a pity,... More

Unlike the ridiculously overrated Da Pasquale, this restaurant was truly excellent. antipasto of porcini tartlet with cream of parmesan was amazing. My tonnerelle with rabbit also superb. my wife's bacalao with ceci extremely delicious too. didn't have a reservation and had to sit outside in the cold rainy patio and it was still a lovely experience. busy, but full of...

Cost for 2 courses plus 1 glass wine was 56 euro - we had fried chicken and slimy breaded mushrooms, plus rabbit stew and polenta both of which were tasteless- don't go there - by... More

I stumbled upon this place after the Opera one evening and I was so happy to have found it! The food is incredible. The service is excellent. The wine list is great. What else could I ask for... The food was so good, we went back the next evening for dinner.

Decided to go to Lucca for the day and have lunch. We did not have a restaurant in mind, but found the Ristorante Giglio. The menu was varied so we went in. We started with an order of bruschetta and it was great.....might be a bit too much garlic for some, but we loved it. We both had a plate... More
