My Husband is a big fan of this place. It doesn't always translate to a successful meal but in this case, I agree with him. We didn't book a table (a mistake, if you want to eat here, you need to book) but we got lucky and a table became available within 10 minutes. We were sat and the obligatory bread you didn't ask for, want nor will eat but you will be charged for arrives (everywhere are big fans of the stuff), drinks orders were taken and a bottle of water arrives, either still or sparkling to your taste. Again you pay for the water but it seems obligatory so if you don't want it, say no.
I had the prosciutto and melon for starters, my husband the mussels. The mussels are outstanding, the best I've ever tasted. Starters were €10 & €12 respectively.
Mains, I had a tuna steak medium, my husband the spaghetti pasta with seafood. My tuna was lovely, lemony, oiley, just the way I like it. We had chips and a salad as sides, the chips are fantastic, the salad is just leaves and tomatoes, I wouldn't order this again for €4 if I'm honest. The mains were €16 & €18 which I thought was reasonable given the standard of the meal.
All in all, 2 courses and an alcoholic drink each, the total was €75. The waiter knows my Husband and said he was applying a discount so the final amount was €70. Given the other restaurants I've eaten in on Giglio, this is far superior and is on par price wise. I don't think it's overly expensive at all. We left a decent tip as the service was outstanding.
My only criticism was the restaurant is very loud but that's the Italian way and you can't do much to control this! Will definitely return, it's my new favourite restaurant now. On this I will for once agree with my Husband!
