Fodor's Expert Review Il Giglio

$$ Lucca Italian Fodor's Choice

Cutting-edge divine food (along with Tuscan classics) are served in this one-room space; the roaring fireplace dominates. In the summer, there's seating outdoors on a pretty little piazza. If mushrooms are in season, try the tacchoni con funghi, a homemade pasta with mushrooms and a native herb called nepitella. A local favorite during winter is the coniglio con olive (rabbit stew with olives).
