Restaurants and Pizzerias on Giglio Island

Wonderful places and dishes of the excellent Tuscan cuisine

In the restaurants on Giglio Island you can taste the excellence of the Tuscan gastronomic tradition with typical dishes of land and sea, in a truly unique atmosphere.

Most restaurants are located in Giglio Porto and Giglio Castello. While at Giglio Porto you will breath a sea air with restaurants directly overlooking the picturesque port (some built on stilts) in Giglio Castello, with its narrow alleys and medieval walls you enter a context where you could forget to be on an island despite the wonderful views that you enjoy towards the Tuscan Archipelago. In Giglio Campese instead the restaurants are situated close to the sandy beach.

We Recommend: During the high season all restaurants are crowded in the evening and it’s advisable to book a table well in advance (the day before).

Local Wine

piccolo vigneto a picco sul mare all'Isola del Giglio

On Giglio island a very good (but also very strong) Ansonaco wine is produced. It is grown on the tiny terraces overlooking the sea since ancient times. It is produced with a 90% of native Ansonica grapes to which a 10% of Biancone, Moscatello, Malvasia and Procanico are added.

While production on Giglio was once very abundant and there was a thriving export, with the arrival of tourism both, agriculture and viticulture was nearly completely abandoned and in the 80s only very few people took care of their small vineyards exclusively for their needs. In the last two decades many vineyards were recoverd and we can enjoy today an excellent local wine.


Panficato is a traditional dessert of the island. It is a sweet loaf, quite soft and with a characteristic brown color, made from figs and walnuts, but also honey, wine and dried grapes. It's a winter dessert ...

Spring Water

The tab water on the Isola del Giglio is supplied by the desalination plants so, although it is drinkable (when filtered), you usually buy bottled drinking water. A good alternative is the fountain in giglio (Sorgente Acqua Selvaggia) which is located in Giglio Castello (before arriving at the central square on the right where there is an indication for the parking and where the old wash houses are located).
