Fodor's Expert Review Lorenzo

$$$$ Forte dei Marmi Seafood Fodor's Choice

The affable Lorenzo Viani has presided here for more than 30 years, and his restaurant still draws a well-heeled, sophisticated crowd. The menu relies heavily on creatures from the sea; a typical starter is spaghetti versiliese, served with shellfish and fresh tomato as is done in the northern Tuscan coastal town of Versilia. Proceed to the magnificent aquatic version of bollito misto comprising crustaceans and fish, boiled, served with a savory mayonnaise. Or request one of several tasting menus, and let chef Gioacchino Pontrelli prepare the freshest items of the day. You can also choose vegetarian and terra (meat) tasting menus.
