We got lost walking to the restaurant, and we were welcomed with nary a word of reproach for our late arrival. The restaurant was busy but not packed and yet was not at all noisy. A very nice thing was that all the servers worked together to make sure we had everything we needed, when requested. The food was very... More

The restaurant is nicely situated opposite the opera house in Lucca. I have eaten there several times over the past few years and on the last occasion I felt the quality of the food and service had deteriorated. It has a pleasant outdoor space for dining in the summer and autumn.

This was not quite as good as we expected. In particular the service was 'flat': staff looked bored. Dolce was very plain.

We have been going to Giglio 2 or 3 times a year for about 10 years, and the welcome has always been very warm and genuine. They are especially delighted when we have our kids with us and don't mind at all when they wander about the restaurant. The service is excellent and the food always delicious. The dishes are...

I stumbled upon this restaurant a year ago but hadn't written a review as I'd forgotten its name! I was recently reminded of the name and thought I'd have to review it now... It was a Valentine's day evening and we were fortunate to find a last minute table, and I'm so glad we did. I had the veal with... More

Very good tuscan food in the heart of the walled city of Lucca! Definetly worth the visit. Go for the ravioli lucchese. Nice pasta dish. Very friendly staff and sophisticated atmosphere.

Based on a recommendation from my hotel in Lucca, I ate at Ristorante Giglio on December 22, 2011. It was phenomenal, full of locals who all knew each other and just fancy enough to make you feel like you're having a special meal, but not so fancy as to feel underdressed in a simple black T and pants. They brought... More

My friend and I spent a week in Lucca and we enjoyed Ristorante Giglio so much that we visited twice. The service was a little slow, but it did not detract from a wonderful meal. We both highly recommend this restaurant.
