Cain - Montemerano ** (confirmed)
She is the creature of Valeria Piccini, chef and woman of enormous gastronomic sensitivity and obstinacy, supported - now - by the precious contribution of her son Andrea.

At midday the restaurant Il Corallo provides sea front service; for gourmet lunch it is necessary to book.
Gabbiano 3.0 - Marina di Grosseto * (new)

Il Giglio - Lucca * (confirmed)
In a beautiful eighteenth-century building, the Giglio has been in existence since 1979, but the management entrusted to three young boys and girls, Stefano Terigi, Lorenzo Stefanini and Benedetto Rullo, dates back a few years ago.

La Pineta - Marina di Bibbona * (confirmed)
Since '96, a point of reference in Italian catering with a splendid location by the sea. We are on the beach of Marina di Bibbona, on the edge of the pine forest with Marina di Cecina.
