There are places that become legends. One of these is the Lorenzo Restaurant in Forte dei Marmi. For almost 40 years it has been an institution for those who love good cuisine, with fish as a mainstay, but not only, because the owner Lorenzo Viani does not compromise on one thing: whatever it is, the raw material must be fresh and perfect and must be the protagonist of the dish. For many years now, the kitchen has been run by Michelin-starred chef Gioacchino Pontrelli, who transforms the raw material with care and passion, without betraying its nature and enhancing its taste. In the two wine lists, one dedicated to the national production and the other to the foreign one, it is possible to find famous names and more niche labels. Every Bottle. Every bottle is then told with the passion of Lorenzo and his daughter Chiara for the world of wine, and is the ideal completion and accompaniment to the refined proposals of the kitchen.

Baracca Fish
Viale Franceschi, 2 - 55042 Forte Dei Marmi
0584 1716337
Pesce Baracca is a place with three souls: not only fishmonger and street food but also a restaurant a few steps from the beautiful beaches of Forte dei Marmi. The menu is dictated by the sea and offers a simple, immediate, informal but also attentive to the tradition of classic cuisine. There are first courses prepared with fresh homemade pasta, the inevitable spaghetti allo scoglio prepared with the classic family recipe, handed down from generation to generation since the opening of the first restaurant in 1964. The peculiarity of the restaurant is certainly the possibility to choose fish and shellfish directly from the fishmonger's counter.
