This is an amazing family run restaurant and we cannot wait to go back. The son, Lorenzo is the chef and he is incredible; his preparation of both meat and fish dishes are truly a work of art and are so delicious. These are not your usual Italian menus; a lot of thought goes into each dish. We had the... More

I always return to this restaurant whenever in Lucca, by far for me the best service food and wine. Located in a fabulous position in the Piazza, good people watching venue.

Loved this restaurant. Ate on the patio overlooking the square. They brought each of us a complimentary glass of prosecco. We asked the waiter for recommendations and ended up ordering pappardelle with rabbit sauce and paccheri in a light butter sauce with scallops. We then had the grilled sea bass for our main. Good house wine. Great service. Wonderful evening.

My husband made a reservation for us to sit outside. When we got there they tried to put us inside he persisted (in Italian) and we were seated outside. Btw deciding who gets to eat outside seems to be a "thing" in Italy. We had an 8pm reservation which followed the nearby Puccini concert. The food was just OK not... More

The chicken in particular is the best ever, but everything we ate was the best - and the staff were fantastic as well, nothing was too much trouble. It was the best meal we had in Lucca. Outside is the best in the evening but in direct sun during the day, so think before you book!

We desired a quiet, romantic dinner spot with great service, and our expectations were definitely met with Ristorante Giglio. We had pasta primi, second and dessert. We had slow cooked, tender wild boar -- and beef cheeks. The dessert was wonderful: panna cotta with pear slices. The food was scrumptious and the atmosphere was top notch (quite elegant).

Our last dinner in Tuscany was simply delicious. Il Giglio is inside the beautiful walled city, in an old palace. I had the risotto and it was lovely. A must when in Lucca!

On a sunny day in June we had a long and very enjoyable lunch in Giglio restaurant. The location is amazing, a large piazza just next to the theatre and the beautiful via Fillungo. It's nice to discover in the heart of one of the oldest and more elegant town in Italy a restaurant that can serve modern and unpretentious... More

A beautiful restaurant on the Piazza del Giglio. You may eat outside or inside. We ate inside in a room that was absolutely lovely. As soon as we sat down they filled our glasses with Prosecco. They started us with an amuse bouche of tomato soup that was palate pleasing and I could have had a whole bowl full. The... More
