I surely recommend this restaurant because of the great seafood, good house wine and friendly atmosphere. The owner Antonio was very helpful and kind, helping us to make our choice and all through the dinner. The recommended large plate of starters was delightful. House wine was excellent. The portions were big; I couldn’t finish mine prawns and squids plate, though it was really veeery good. The interior design is quite simple and functional. The atmosphere in restaurant is friendly/family (there were several quite big friends/family groups of people) and therefore rather noisy. Still we felt ourselves absolutely comfortable: big thanks to Antonio for helping his guests to feel happy and pleased. Being in a joyful mood at the end of the meal we were granted limonchello and that added even more cheer. Our bill was about 90 Euro for three, including 1,25 l of wine. A very fair price, I think.

Gosh, I only can recommend this restaurant.
We were planning to go to another restaurant in the same street, but when we saw the windows of IL GIGLIO, I knew that there was the place where I wanted to have a dinner.
IL GIGLIO looks like the italian restaurant you can see in old movie.
The price were perfectly fair, the local white wine (owner) is delicious (8.50 for 1 liter), the food is .... amazing !! and we've been offered a grappa.
No seriously, everything is perfect. The owner is terribly friendly, speak english and everything is clean. Just 1 advise, GO !! don't hesitate

We arrived at the restaurant right at 7:30 when it opened. We were the first customers. The menu is only in Italian, but the owner translated and described the dishes to us. We chose the squid ink pasta with crab and the baked fish with olives and potatoes. The pasta was ok but the fish was delicious. It was baked whole and then filleted and served to us. The house white wine went well with it. Soon after we arrived the restaurant filled up with both couples and families. So make a reservation or go early. The fish is worth it.

We had branzino and fritto misto at this little restaurant, and found both to be excellent. The owner was helpful in explaining the menu, and the service is good. Don't hesitate if you like fish and seafood.

Il Giglio is a very good fish and seafood restaurant with familiar atmosphere. Antonio was very helpful in explaining the Italian menu and his recommendations were great. I will come back next time I am in Turin.
