Loved by locals

This place is located off the tourist track near the walls encircling the historic city center. It's a pretty big restaurant for such a small town and it was completely empty when we came in at around 5pm but all the tables were booked. They found us a table which was booked for 7pm, so we had... read more

We visited here for lunch with a group of eight friends. The restaurant is a little hard to find and we were actually with friends from this area. It is a large restaurant and very popular. Even though its large it was not noisy. I had the Ravioli with ricotta, spinach and meat sauce, it was fantastic . Not a... More

I've been to Da Giulio's many times and everytime I go I decide on another favorite. My latest choice (highly recommended) is the Pappa Pommodoro which is basically fresh italian bread soaked in the freshest tomato and basil sauce you've ever had. There is also a summer version. Like most of the places in Lucca, everything on the menu is... More

The hotel suggested that I try this place which made me a little dubious on finding another resident. Was it a recognised 'feed'? In fact very friendly and helpful staff who volunteered that if I didn't like any food or drink they would change it. Unusual to say the least. Cooking may not be Michelin 3* but rustic and fresh...

This was my second time to have a specially prepared dinner for Santa Croce. The food was excellent as was the service from the great staff. The location is right on the procession route and you can have dinner outside and watch the procession pass right by. I will be back next year for the food and Santa Croce. I... More

We had a wonderful dinner here at Trattoria Da Giulio. We were recommended by our B&B to eat here. It gets quite busy,lots os locals, so bookings are recommended. Our meals were fresh and delicious and good value for money too.

We went to this restaurant in the early fall and didn't have a problem finding a table. The food was only average by Tuscany standards. The service was deplorable however. The server walked past our table numerous times for 45 minutes after we had finished eating and didn't bother to find out if we wanted dessert or an espresso. I... More

Da Guilio is a great place to eat, with two large, open rooms serving wonderful meals in a family-friendly atmosphere. My wife and I were two of only a handful of tourists in the place, as it caters to locals and their families. We both had an excellent meal, with good service. Reservations are definitely recommended, as this ristorante is... More

Honest simple food, very friendly atmosphere. Mostly locals at the other tables, but we were greeted warmly and had good, very moderately priced meal. Veal stew was particularly good.
