Our B&B hosts recommended Osteria San Georgio as a great late supper destination. They were spot on. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, seated at a table prepared for the 8 of us and served a delicious and varied meal that reflected the wonderful food that you find in Tuscany. We will return any time we are in Lucca.

All 3 of us enjoyed our meal. Risotto done perfectly - satisfying without being so heavy that we couldn't contemplate advancing to the next course , which we happily did. 2 of us Divided an excellent steak which actually would have fed 3. The filet with green peppercorn sauce was also very good. House wine ok. Prices reasonable. Good attentive... More

We had a delicious lunch in this lovely little retaurant set in a shady courtyard close to the amphitheatre area. Our tomato and aubergine risotto could not be faulted. The shady quiet courtyard provided welcome relief from a busy and very hot Lucca. Service was very friendly and efficent and we would definately recommend eating here.

On the day that we visited the Osteria San Giorgio we had spent the day walking around the wall. As we passed it a lady stopped us to say what a wonderful meal they had just experienced. We decided to book for that evening. The place is lovely and the food we had was excellent. I had a risotto and... More

The locals & hotel staff are the only people in Lucca that know this restaurant exists. If you want the best steak in town, look no further. Situated in a side street off the main thoroughfare directions will be needed. The menu caters to all tastes, but the speciality is the steak. Just remember to order it medium.

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.
