Slightly off the main Gordone tourist hotspot area, but definitely worth finding, especially for seafood lovers. We have just experienced not only an exceptional meal, but such personable and friendly service. We had the taster menu, which was outstanding, but other dishes looked equally delightful. Homemade deserts not to be missed. Lack of outside seating and view was more than compensated for by quality of food and service. An unexpected highlight of our honeymoon, we would definitely make a return visit if staying in the area again.

Hidden in a side street this restaurant may not get the footfall it deserves. It specialises in seafood/fish/shellfish and the food is exemplary. Not cheap but you truly get what you pay for with taste and style! To be recommended.

This resaurant is tucked away in a side street in Fasano, between Gardone and Toscalana. It would be very easy to miss, but hope visitors will make the effort to find it and eat there.
We booked a table and walked from Bellevue Hotel, in all about 25 minutes. (am a slow walker these days)
It is not obvious from the outside that this is a restaurant, but inside it is very pleasant and the greeting from the owner most welcoming.
The fish was delicious and came with a stunning garnish of seaweed, king prawns and scallop. Extremely tasty.

My wife and I went to Il Giglio two weeks ago and were delighted with our experience. We ordered a mammoth amount of food, but quickly realised we weren't going to get through it all, so the maitre d allowed us to change our order as we went along. The pasta dish, with sea urchin, was delightful, and was divided between two and presented as though they were separate dishes.

The deserts were also fabulously creative and delicious, we were curious as to what one was, though neither of us ordered it, and were given the extra dessert for free.

An all round great experience. The presentation of all dishes was brilliant as well.

We called in for lunch and were surprised to note that we were the only diners. We ordered the seafood risotto and the clams and muscles to start, which were really good, but the a warning should come with the portion sizes, they were huge, so when our main course came we were so full, we struggled to finish, I left most of my mixed fried fish. Perhaps the waiter should have advised us of the portion sizes. Its not a cheap eat, but the service, location and style of Il Giglio is truly memorable. If you are a fish lover, its a must.
