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

The restaurant is set in an antiquated building, which resembles an old style hotel. It was attractive with antique furniture and artifacts. Tables were well decorated and the service accommodating. English was not widely spoken, with only a couple of staff being able to communicate. However this was not a real issue. We were offered a variety of local dishes... More

You eat in a really lovely room. Service was attentive but not too intrusive Food was well cooked and beautifully presented. Always a nice touch to get an hors d’oeuver and a complimentary prosecco (yes I know you pay for it really!). Nice wine list with lots of local choices. On the pricier end in Lucca but very nice.

Located on a quiet piazza, Ristorante Giglio has nice indoor and outdoor dining, great wait staff, a good wine list, and a wonderful menu. My friend and I tried a number of items, from antipasto, primi and second and loved them all. Would recommend this restaurant (which was recommended by Fabio at the B&B Il Duomo) in a heartbeat! One... More

Easy five star review. We were afraid this place might be more reputation than quality but it did not disappoint in any way. The food was excellent and the price was very reasonable. Reservations are mandatory since the dining room is small.

We stayed in Lucca for four days, sampling various restaurants and seeing the town. Restaurant Giglio was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere was warm and friendly ( on a rainy night) and the food was excellent. The menu has lots of variety and all the dishes we sampled were excellent. I would definitely go back and...
