Il Cucchiaio della Nonna, restaurant and pizzeria, offers excellent gluten-free food in Forte dei Marmi

4 Aug

Il Cucchiaio della nonna is a restaurant and pizzeria offering pizzas and flatbreads cooked in wood, local and fish food, but also a take away service, for the beach lovers. The restaurant is located at the end of Forte dei Marmi, in the department of Vittoria Apuana, in the parallel of the seafront street, 50 meters far from Versilia’s largest free beach .

The food is good, prepared with genuine ingredients (it seems it is prepared by Mrs Paola, the grandmother), and despite the service is not ever very quick, the staff is pleasant and courteous. As soon as you arrive at the table, they are quick to serve you an appetizer, usually a variety of pizzas’ stripes. The opening of Il Cucchiaio della Nonna is a good news also for the celiacs. The restaurant indeed offers a very large gluten-free menu, and serves very good pizzas for celiacs. For reservation Tel 0039 0584 752340 info@ilcucchiaiodellanonna.it

Tuscany is a place where  the celiacs can travel with pleasure for their eyes and for their taste.

The number of restaurants and trattorie offering gluten_free dedicated menu is growing constantly, and anyway, also where there is not any specific menu, the restaurants’ managers, waiters and chefs, are now aware about this kind of needs, and normally are able to adress the choice and to serve some naturally gluten free dish safely prepared.

As regards  the pizzerie, there are some specialized ones. It is normally better to inform about the non gluten free request at the reservation moment.

Palazzo Pretorio, restaurant, pizzeria – Giovanni Santarpia – San Donato in Poggio – Chianti – Tuscany

31 Jul

Palazzo Pretorio Restaurant and pizzeria is located in a seventeen century building in San Donato in Poggio, a nice #medieval village, in the Chianti region, between #Florence and #Siena.

The reason why we have decided to suggest it, it’s because of the faboulous pizza we have eaten here. For sure, one of the best pizza in #Tuscany.

The restaurant offers tipical Tuscany dishes, such as the #bistecca alla fiorentina, and also good fresh fish proposals, but the pizza made by Giovanni Santarpia is very special, let’s say excellent, and we love to recommend it.

palazzo-pretorio

The Giovanni’s pizzas are prepared in the traditional napoletana way, with a double leavening mixture, for a soft and digestible pizza with a perfect cooking.

The pizza condiment is made with very fresh and high quality #mozzarella and #tomato, and in addition to the traditional pizza, there are also some innovative but very tasteful proposals, such as “tomato, zucchine and pesto”, or “pumpkin and bacon”.

Try also the dessert, you will enjoy them.

Caffè Marconi in Marina di Pietrasanta (Versilia) – The Original Pane Arabo Pizza

6 Sep

Caffè Marconi was born more than 40 years ago in Forte dei Marmi, in Marconi square, where every Sunday there is the famous Forte dei Marmi Market.

Few months ago, Misses Rosa and her daughter Patrizia decided to move their famous Caffè Marconi to Marina di Pietrasanta, in Giosuè Carducci street at the 149. The  new location is very close to the Twiga beach, few steps from some of the more famous Versilian beaches.

This summer I went there, discovering the Caffè Marconi  their Specialità: the Pane Arabo Pizza. It is simply fantastic.

The Pane Arabo is a stuffed focaccia invented in 1977 by Misses Rosa and her Husband when the Caffè Marconi was in Forte dei Marmi. Now the Pane Arabo Pizza is one of the more popular pizza. There is no pizzeria in Italy which does not have the pane arabo  in its pizza menu.

The original recipe contains tomato, green salade, ham and cream cheese. The secrets of Misses Rosa are two: the special cream cheese (fantastic) and the dough.

Today you can eat this special and tasting pizza on the nice terrace of Caffè Marconi, drinking a fresh bier at a very good price.

Some friends of mine also tasted the other kind of pizza prepared by Caffè Marconi, and they loved also them.

So if you wish to enjoy the best and the original Pane Arabo pizza goes to Caffè Marconi in Marina di Pietrasanta. Rosa and Parizia will be happy to welcome you.
