Best restaurant in town! Loved it had to go there over and over and when we tried another place we were so disappointed we had to go back to San Giorgio. Book ahead to avoid disappointments. The food is brilliant and the hosts really nice and friendly. If you are into wines, ask for the house wine, they do a... More

This cute osteria was recommended as comparatively untouristy & there certainly seemed to be lots of locals eating when we visited. We sat outside in the atmospheric courtyard & ate delicious, unpretentious & inexpensive food. Mussel & clams in a piquant saffron broth, perfectly grilled seabream & al dente ribbons of zucchini. Service was charming if a little relaxed; sides... More

If you are looking for somewhere that offers more than the usual tourist menu then Osteria San Giorgio will not disappoint. Tucked behind a small courtyard that is barely visible off Via San Giorgio, the restaurant offers seating outside, in the small courtyard or inside, in the charming, bustling traditionally styled, but air conditioned, interior. Been here on a previous... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here and greatly appreciated that they had a high chair for our one year old. It is rare to find a place with a great bottle of wine, delicious food, and a staff that allows both parents and child to enjoy the meal. We all had a great evening here.

It's always difficult finding somewhere nice to eat in a town like Lucca. There are so many 'tourist' restaurants who offer mediocre service with mediocre food at high prices. This restaurant, in spite of it's central location, offers good food at reasonable prices with excellent service. The shady courtyard is a welcome, calm setting for the umbrella shaded tables and...

We had a lovely light lunch. Friendly, busy atmosphere. Super food. I had interesting combination of sautéed calamari and peaches - really nice. Sitting outside but protected from the sun. Would definitely go again.

We had a table outside. There is not a lot of space and when all tables are occupied (and they are - so order in advance!), you should not expect a quiet dinner. The food is of high quality using local ingredients and the wine list is satisfactory. The service is friendly and attentive.

This is a cosy and relaxed place in a quiet courtyard setting. The food was very reasonable and completely delicious. Recommend the saffron risotto and the Fiorentina steak. Waiters were very helpful and jovial. I'd love to eat there again but would ask to sit inside. We enjoy sitting outside but found myself in a small walled courtyard with at... More

After a recommendation by our B&B we nipped by for some lunch. The place had a lovely atmosphere and the air conditioning worked well which I mention as it was so hot, even indoors most places we visited. The staff were lovely and helpful and the place is very cute. Our food was fresh and delicious, I did not want... More

On our third evening in Lucca, we decided to dine at Osteria San Giorgio. This is a very good restaurant with good service. We ate Carpaccio Branzin (Sea Bass), Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil, Mussel and Clam Soup (Baccala Zuppetta), Tortelli with beef ragu. Dessert consisted of Crème Brulee and Chocolate & Raspberry Tart. All washed down with lovely vino... More
