Marco Stabile, former owner of Oria d'Aria in Florence, has opened a new restaurant on the historic terrace of the Gelateria Dai Dai in Castiglioncello.

The Stabilimento Balneare Le Forbici is a comfortable and peaceful oasis of wellbeing where one can experience the comfort of the many services offered while respecting nature.

Via dei Cavalleggeri Nord, 27 - Marina di Bibbona (LI)
ph. +39 0586 600016
On the beach of Marina di Bibbona, on the edge of the pine forest with Marina di Cecina, there was a little bar on stilts, next to the La Pineta bathhouse, where more than half a century ago a family thought to prepare some fish dishes for a clientele that had begun to frequent those beaches. Today, they do simple and ingenious cooking. Not to be missed.
Viale Guglielmo Marconi, 22 - San Vincenzo (LI)

A pile dwelling on the beach with a design by Massimiliano Fuksas that is based on the quality of the raw materials and brings distinct flavours to the table, simple but at the same time tasty. Not to be missed is the sunset, one of the most beautiful on the entire coast.

Viale Amerigo Vespucci, 1 - Rosignano Solvay-Castiglioncello
ph. +39 0586 753192
In the picturesque bay of Castiglioncello, framed by a centuries-old pine forest, is the bar-restaurant La Lucciola located at the historic Bagni Ausonia . Thanks to its favourable position sheltering it from the winds and humidity, it is the ideal place to dine al fresco on clear winter days and warm summer evenings. The restaurant has a large sheltered outdoor area, which at sunset takes on a special charm with the faint light of lanterns and the waving of light gauze curtains. For summer lunch, it offers simple fish dishes, crispy fried food and rich salads, while in the evening the menu develops into seafood dishes with a refined taste, delicate flavours and meticulous presentation.
Ristorante Il Piccinino
Via Aurelia, 672 - Castiglioncello (LI)
ph. +39 0586 373089
A small laboratory of experimentation where you can play with raw materials. At Piccinino there is no menu that is always the same, but five dishes that change according to the weather and availability of products. One of the dishes is the Toscanino, a Tuscan pasta sandwich with fish delicacies. The other two dishes are still two from the sea and two from the land, but without meat, only vegetables. A meeting of colours and flavours not to be missed.
