Try to seat outside as you can then people watch and look at the beautiful architecture of the piazza. Great food, wines, service and reasonably priced. Worth a visit.

Old style fancy restaurant in downton, from the outside it does not seems to be as nice as it is once you get inside. The first impression you get once you are in is that you can leave everything behind you, relax and enjoy your stay in ancient building still full of charme. The menu is pretty wide with a... More

We have eaten at many restaurants in the Centro Storico in Lucca. The locals, when I asked where to "get a good steak", often recommended Giglios. We finally went. I ordered a steak . The waiter, even after referring to the chef, could not be specific as to the cut of meat! It was not only cooked too long for... More

Dear PeterWesleyFrancis, We are very sorry to read that you had an unpleasant experience in our restaurant. It would be extremely helpful to know what kind of stake you had, was it a T-bone steak? Our T-bone stakes are usually cooked to a "rare" point unless otherwise requested by our clients, they tend to be tender and tasty. There are... More

In a town crowded with marathon runners and spectators on this particular day we just sort of accidentally stumbled into a top notch restaurant on the Piazza del Giglio. The interior of the restaurant probably looks today pretty much like it always has. Could easily be a set for period movie of the 30's or 40's, that is to say... More

Group of three without a reservation on a rainy night. We opted for inside even though outside was covered and warmed. It is a bright but cozy area with tables close together. Extensive wine list of local wines as well as house wines. Service was good. We had the grilled octopus which was a large appetizer of several long thick... More

We found this to be a good place to eat, especially after the nearby Puccini concerts. Instead of eating outside, we chose the smallish room as you enter. It turned out to be an engaging way to watch the bustle of a busy restaurant.

We've been here twice when visiting Lucca. The restaurant offers great outside dining and very good food. It is listed in the Michelin guide for that. We ordered a local wine expecting it to be a sangiovese blend, but it turned out 100% sangiovese in spite of the wine list. When we complained about that, we were given something else... More

In lovely Piazza Giglio, we found it always busy but never feeling crowded. The food is truly Tuscan delicious, and the servers are professional and friendly.
