Ristorante del Giglio

Our History


Since 1908

Del Giglio Restaurant started its activity in 1908 as a wine shop, then, step by step, it began a trattoria and the former owner, a Florentine, decided to bring the taste of Tuscany in the capital. Recalling the emblem of his city, he wanted to let clients taste the most famous recipes of his region combining it with those of the roman tradition. In 1952 it was Angelo Vittucci, who had already worked in the restaurant as his father Amedeo did before him, that took over the restaurant continuing the tradition of the typical Roman and Tuscany’s cuisine, always focusing on the use of first quality food and the introduction of some Italian courses that are not part of the roman cuisine. An example is the Carrello dei bolliti misti (Assorted boiled meat – with a large choice from the cart). All served in a friendly atmosphere to let clients feel at home.

The proximity to the Opera Theatre has historically brought to the restaurant the best performers and exponents of the international opera to taste Del Giglio’s specialties and enjoy the traditional dishes of its cuisine. Nowadays Del Giglio Restaurant is managed by Angelo’s family that help maintaining untouched the family, restaurant and the Italian cuisine traditions. Every day of the week corresponds to a typical dish, prepared with first choice fresh products. At Del Giglio Restaurant you can enjoy a wide choice of wines from the best Italian wine cellars. The interiors are composed of 4 large rooms with ancient and high ceilingsthat can host up to 80 people and a private room for further 20/25 people (all rooms are equipped of air conditioning). We also have a small external area for those who would prefer to eat in the open air.
