Pierantonio Antico Ristorante Forassiepi

Reviewed By Kjetil E

Two weeks ago I visted Ristorante Forassiepi together with a family member. I did write a review, but based on communication with the upset chef I deleted it and will by this rewrite my comments on the visit.I have lived more than 60 years by the Noth Sea, so fish and other “seafood“ are well known. Due to different reasons I have cooked in the kitchen for more than 50 years but I do not call myself a chef, yet. The last 6 weeks, and two more to come, I have enjoyed learning more about the Italian kitchen so I am better prepared to invite neighbours, friend, family or other visitors that would like to dine with us in Montecarlo.I am also pleased to see I have catched up with 100.000 readers on my reviews on Tripadviser that I hope read my reviews as I read others. To find good or challenges with restaurants I like to vist when I am in a particular area.So back to Ristorante Forassiepi. Over the 17 years visiting Lucca and the area this was my third visit the Ristorante Forassiepi. Previous I have been reasonable pleased even it is 5 years since last time.I was very pleased, even we were prepared to come back. The person who took my reservation noted wrong day. Just the way I want it. See a table empty for 3 hours instead of have other people dine in between is waste. We wanted to check out their menu and taste the food. So two hours for us should be more than enough, normally. I poped into the chef just briefly before we were seated. The restaurant is obvius a place for fine dining. The clients this evening also indicated this.The menu is interesting and we appreciated the introduction soup, nice presentation and very good tast. For starter I had choose Octopus. I very often do that when I see it because I just love it. And this was prefect cooked, just delicious. Primi was our first disappointment. Both of us had risotto and it was not cooked enough. The plating was not as you expect a first class restaurant and the tast from what should be a marinated salmon disappear. I had picked Scampi (Nephrops norvegicus). Taste ok, noted is that you can choose from fruit or vegetables along with the scampi. I had fruit, so dolce along with my second and it lifted the dish completeness. However, again I was very disappointed with the presentation. I eat a lot with my eyes so I have different expectations depend on what kind of restaurants I visit.Second, disappointment of the day was when my family member ordered Lobster. As mentioned, lived by the sea expectation of a European Lobster when Lobster is put on the menu is there, so if any would like lobster at Ristorante Forassiepi, ask what kind of lobster are on the menu this day. Looking at their video on Facebook lobster is European Lobster present, but that was not what was given us. In general service is good. Based on the high priced menu it is easy to see they spend a part of that with having staff available, both in the kitchen and the front. Chef Antonio Pirozzi, has his 35 years pluss in business, but as years goes it is not as easy to watch all and keep a hand on everything. That we did not turn any dish back to the kitchen, sorry about that, just not something we do. I rather tell the story what kind of experience I have and leave it with that. This time was a “cosi..cosi” experience, hope to visit again and that it will be better. White wine from Enzo Carmangiani was good and was a good match to our dishes.

Reviewed By peter r

We were highly recommended this Buggiano village restaurant (and there aren’t many about in this region) but somehow we never got to really taste the promised good local Italian pasta and general offerings. The service was rustique too and not very friendly apart from the waitress who tried really hard. Huge disappointment and have had better Italian food in loads of London restaurants. What happened to the original Italian local cuisine?

The location, the food and the service here are all good. But the experience is spoiled by busloads of tourists, noisy and boisterous. This is good for business of course but those of us wanting a quiet Tuscan meal will go elsewhere in Montecarlo.

Reviewed By Bigsalmon

This is our second stay in the mountain village of Vellano in Tuscany and Trattoria Manero ids the local eatery and whilst in teh village we tend to eat there fairly regularly. It is very traditional, there is no menu, and they speak very little english - perfect! We enjoy practising out appalling Italian and somehow get there in order to understand the options of the day and have always had a fabulous meal in the 'glasshouse' perched on the mountain side with spectacuar views across the hills. It is always good value and fun - love it.

Ristorante Pizzeria Pucci

Reviewed By kathleene_12

We were hungry late at night, so we went to the village to find a pizza place. We walked in to Pizzeria Pucci and were greeted by a friendly waitress. She was very accommodating, ordering us a pizza and boxing it up. I was sorry we didn't bring the whole family down so we could eat in the restaurant. The décor was inciting and the people were so nice and welcoming. And we liked the pizza.

Agriturismo Montaione

Reviewed By Davidfirving

This is a family run agriturismo business with restaurant and accommodation. We tried to book for lunch on ferragosto but it was fully booked. We settled for supper. The restaurant was quieter and we sat down to enjoy the set menu. Good is copious and we managed everything up till the wild boar stew. The service as usual was excellent and Miranda the proprietor in between cooking was a superb host I recommend that everyone should eat here at least once in a lifetime. I eat here more frequently.

La Taverna dei Miracoli da Mangiafuoco

Reviewed By Mobile63885713771

From the moment we were welcomed in (at 9:30 p.m.) we felt right at home. Although the ambiance may be a little lacking, it fits perfectly with the home-style atmosphere. AND, while it may lack in linen cloths and napkins, the food and service makes up 10 times!Massimo and his staff made this our favorite restaurant in the region! I am a chef and this was the best lamb dish I have ever eaten...ANYWHERE! The mushroom ravioli, divine! The Panna Cotta...sublime! The food, service and wine were absolutely excellent! How I wish we could have eaten here every night. Thank you Guy Fieri and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. This recommendation was spot on! Grazie Massimo and familia! Ritornero!!!! I will return and send my friends!

Trattoria Sandrino

Reviewed By often_crabby-travele

Five of us ate for 100 Euro, didn't drink much if anything because I was driving. We had six appetizers and then also a main course. We passed everything around and a good, authentic Italian experience. I like the setting. We sat outside but inside is also nice. There is a pond with ducks. It was packed, luckily we "knew someone".
