This restaurant is both comfortable when sitting outside and elegant if dining inside. In the dining room there's an oversized Murano glass chandelier that creates a glow. The food is Toscana style and one of the best meals I have had across the globe. Steak Florentine that melted in your mouth, Porcini Risotto perfectly cooked, creamy and rich, then dessert- salted caramel panna cotta with sliced apples and pistachios- these are the foods of heaven.

Local from Florence

Lucca's culinary tradition flourishes and develops in the enchanted atmosphere of the Giglio. So say the Owner.
A careful selection of local products combined with complete respect for their particular qualities. Every creative choice is in tune with the cycle of the seasons, from ingredients that are natural and fresh. Cuisine inspired by tradition and interpreted with an originality that can surprise with entirely new dishes.

Passion and extreme care are the rule in everything - in the perfect setting of soft lights, starry skies and the Giglio Theatre, with traditional aromas, subtle flavours and sheer deliciousness.

First to Review

We start with a Lucchese sangiovese wine which is quite good and quite inexpensive. We split a antipasto of mixed salumi. There were some very different items, one sausage was kind of pate like in consistency but with a spice like nutmeg or mace, head cheese, a slice of lardo (which is literally a slice of lard, cured pork fat – very tasty and you try not to think about cholesterol) and a really tasty liver topping on a crostini. My husband had the tortelli Lucchese this time. The pasta is beautifully dark yellow. The Giglio portion is smaller. My husband has a contorno of stewed artichokes which are cooked with a goodly amount of garlic. I have chicken and carciofi which are deep fried – way better than KFC. We both are becoming addicted to the artichokes.
Everything was so good we discussed coming back one evening for dinner but never did.
