Ristorante Giglio information
Lonely Planet review
Don't let the tacky plastic-covered pavement terrace on Lucca's largest pedestrian city square deter. Inside, Giglio is stunning. Dine at white tableclothed tables, sip a complimentary glass of prosecco, watch the fire crackle in the ornate marble fireplace and know you're dining in the finest restaurant in town, splendidly at home in the frescoed 18th-century Palazzo Arnolfini no less.
Cuisine is traditional Tuscan with a modern twist, such a fresh artichoke salad served in an edible parmesan-cheese wafer 'bowl', or risotto simmered in Chianti. End with Lucchese buccellato ( sweetbread) filled with ice cream and berries.
