Il Giglio Rosso 

The Giglio Rosso dates back to 1928, beginning as a small food business that evolved over the years to become the current four-room restaurant, seating approximately 100.

Our restaurant takes its name from the symbol of Florence: a red lily on a white background.

The current managers are the Mari brothers, who for many years have directly served their guests, offering them typical dishes of Tuscan and Italian cuisine, recommending the best Tuscan and national wines to their diners.

Diners come here to taste the famous Ribollita Tuscan soup or puree with tomato, the fettuccine with porcini mushrooms or the Pappardella pasta with pork, and many other first courses including the fresh fish that is part of our menu every day; we take great care to ensure its freshness.

The range of delicious Tuscan cold cuts is particularly popular, from the fennel-seed-flavored Finocchiona to the typical Tuscan salami, from the Colonnata lard to the artisanal hand-cut Tuscan prosciutto and many varieties of bruschetta and crostini. The typical Tuscan cheeses, fresh and cured, give the ability of tasting one of the most beloved products of our region. The star of the Giglio Rosso is its famous Florentine beefsteak, cooked over coal and cut in front of the diners so they can admire the full process.

The grilled lamb cutlets represent another tasty dish from our kitchen, such as the sliced beef or the typical dishes from our traditions such as the Florentine tripe, peposo dell' Impruneta (beef stew with pears) or the veal ossobuco always present on our menu.

Located in the center of Florence, in the triangle of the Duomo, S. Lorenzo and Santa Maria Novella, we are surrounded by the most important museums and the most beautiful churches of the city within easy access of our restaurant.

By visiting our site, you can get to know us better and note the great varieties of wines from which you may choose to accompany your dishes prepared by our chefs.

We take great care with the genuine nature and the substance of our dishes rather than just their appearance.
