The restaurant was founded in the ’60s in the prestigious halls of the eighteenth-century Palazzo Arnolfini, which is famous for its frescoes and for being the birthplace of Felice Matteucci, the inventor of the internal combustion engine.

The elegant Giglio dining rooms create a unique atmosphere: traditional and modern meet at the table, thanks to a fine synthesis of flavours.

The cellar, the silverware, the decorations and the style of service add a touch of magic to every course, and every conversation at the table comes to life.

The restaurant opens out onto a veranda where you can enjoy lunch in the sun and dine under the stars all year round on the quiet square, facing the Teatro Comunale.

For an important private or professional event, Ristorante Giglio still continues to be a place worship in the city of Lucca, a reference point for those who want to add grace, elegance and history to their special occasions.
