We have been going to this restaurant for a long time and each time it gets better but the other night was AMAZING! I had a paté which I usually do not have in Italy but this was the smoothest paté ever and accompanied by their homemade pain brioché, was literally so mouth-watering I wanted to order another one!

A wonderful dining experience and great ambiance. Delicious food and wine at fair prices. The place was packed, yet the staff was most attentive and professional. Not to missed if you dine in Lucca.

Fire place was on a glass of prosecco was served together with a very tasty amuse. For me a typical Sunday dinner " tortellini in brodo ( good... More

The restaurant was packed with people. I recommend a reservation. The server recommended the ravioli with meat sauce and the veal cheek (similar to slow cooked beef short ribs, but with a crispy sear) with whipped potatoes. We shared both and were quite please with the flavor. In addition, I had red beans which were slow cooked with a subtle... More

We were recommended to go to Giglio and it more than lived up to expectations. It is Italian fine dining at its best. Superb and inventive cuisine yet relaxed atmosphere and helpful staff. Good wine list and knowledgeable sommelier. Give it a try if you are in Lucca.

We couldn't fault the service, the food, the location, or the prices. A very pleasant setting opposite the Opera House and to sit outside for a long leisurely lunch on a sunny afternoon in the last week of November was a bonus. The monkfish starter and lamb main course is highly recommended. We will be back next year!

Went here for lunch and could not have been more pleased with my selection. The risotto with the chianti reduction was to die for. Serve could not have been better and the surroundings were beautiful.

We were 3 friends finishing off a trip in Tuscany, so we have had some amazing food in the region. The set up is dark, old and could do with a massive clean up. It's high end for prices but didn't deliver on the food, flavours were missing. We first order 3 plates of pasta as main course with no... More

Our hotel highly recommended this restaurant and they were right on target. However we made reservations at 7:00 Pm and were the only guests until 8;00 when the room filled rapidly. The menu was interesting and we ordered antipasto-- tongue(super), Primi piatti--tagliatelle with rabbit ragu, Segundo piatti--my husband had veal cheeks and i had leg of lamb(more like a shank)--We...

The restaurant offers outdoor tables and a lovely traditional dining room in the square opposite the town's theatre, providing really excellent food. You know you're in good hands when a glass of prosecco comes automatically! Excellent home-made bread (the waitress described in detail what each was made of). We had raw beef with foie gras and mustard mayo, maccheroni with... More
