Locanda del Gusto

Reviewed By picchio85 - Cleveland, Ohio

Pietrasanta has become really popular and crowded, especially during weekends. For these reasons we booked 1 month in advanced for a birthday. Except we were not told that there are 3 dining turns. And if you show up a little late your Reading time is counted.. So we had to give up or c take outside and sit inside with an incredibly faint A/C.
To there for now. The spaghetti with ricci and bottarga were tasteless, there ravioli with pappa all pomodoro delicious, the gnocchi with scampi and liquorice average (such a sauce is a winner, covers all). The seared tuna with poppy seeds was good, the Morara I will remember better.
Overall, however not our best dining experience. In 3 days I will have forgot all I had to eat but remember our table inside

Ristorante Il Circo

Reviewed By NW2FOODIE - NORTH WEST LONDON

The first time we ate here this restaurant wowed us with excellent food & super value for money. Our expectations were therefore high & although we had a pleasant evening the food was rather disappointing. Almost all the dishes on the tasting menu contained tomato, and although we do like tomato the balance was not good. The pasta was disappointing and overpowered by the addition of mint which didn't compliment the seafood. Our friend ordered a la carte and was unlucky in her choice of cod with polenta as this turned out to be a cold dish which was bland and unappetising. It's still in a good location, the service friendly and the value good.... Perhaps we were just unlucky on the night?

Da Beppino

Reviewed By NinoCarp

This is a local favourite just outside Pietrasanta. We ate there twice during our recent stay in Italy. The first time was on 28 December when we had a fantastic "Fiorentina" t-bone steak, cooked perfectly (rare) and accompanied with an excellent and reasonably priced bottle of red wine. Each day they recommend specific wines by the bottle and the glass. We were there again on 1 January for lunch. The place was really busy and the staff were excellent even though they had been working to 3am that morning with the new years eve celebrations. This time we each started with a pasta (tordello) dish. Cooked perfectly and just the right quantity. To follow we had lamb cutlets, which are always excellent here, and roast pork accompanied by pan cooked greens and delicious, crispy roast potatoes. My wife wanted red wine whilst I preferred white. The waiter recommended a half bottle of house red wine and I had the house white wine by the glass although a full bottle was brought to and left at the table. For the half bottle of red wine and the two glasses of white wine that I drank we were charged only six euros. Excellent value. There is nit a vast choice on the menu but the food is unpretentious and always top quality. Very good value for money and to top it all the service always comes with a smile and they always try to accommodate our request to seat us in the small dining room to the left as you enter the restaurant as the more intimate room. In the summer it can seat up to 80 people outside. If you want to get into some serious wines then the sommelier is always happy to assist through the extensive and excellent wine list.

Osteria la Tecchia

Reviewed By CHERIEParisFrance - Pietrasanta, Italy

Osteria La Tecchia has the best food in Pietrasanta. The chef, Daniela, is a culinary genius. Lunch is a wonderful time for sitting in the sun and enjoying the slow parade of Pietrasanta. with a great wine selection and the charming host, Nino.
We went for lunch and were seated outside. The linens on the table were gorgeous but it is still a casual feeling place. Sipping a glass of prosecco, we started with antipasto consisting of six different types of seafood....almost too beautiful to eat! Each bite was superb and stood out for the flavor. I had the fritto misto; perfectly and lightly fried, crunchy and crisp: 4 kinds of fish, shrimp, zucchini and scampi. My friend had the same but grilled. A nice white wine from the Alto Aldige, rounded out the meal. A bit of ice cream , coffee and a brandy...and it was time for the siesta.

Reviewed By John C - Vancouver, Canada

This family run resto is a few minutes drive away from the over-hyped places in Pietrasanta. We ate there with local friends who are very keen on good local-sourced cooking offering good value, and this fit the bill Everything was top notch, from the welcome, the soft candle light everywhere, the friendly and efficient service,and the delicious food. After sharing some great starters, three of the four of us had the salt cod and leeks: delicate and perfectly done. The wine appeared to have no mark-up at all, and was excellent. In all, with two bottles of wine and dessert, the bill was 100€ for the four of us for a flawless dining experience.

We came on a Friday night and this place was EMPTY, which was just the first red flag of the night. Menu is very limited: no salads, soups or any type of starters. Despite an empty restaurant, the service was slow and snobby. Our bottle...Morereading the other reviews noted that many other customers are okay with her. his review is essential, thank you.

Reviewed By LitaC - Paris, France

Great food + great atmosphere = Big Fun! No menu. First comes a round of wonderful and varied anti pasta. Plenty for everyone. Next came a fabulous pasta course. Beautiful beef ravioli, the speciality of the region. It was delicious and then the meat course which was equally good. They served roasted chicken with rosemary and delicious roasted potatoes and then excellent sliced roast pork.
The restaurant looks like an outdoor Italian tiki bar but don't be fooled, its delicious, fun and well priced. Great service too. We had a vegan among us and they brought her a platter of freshly char-grilled veggies and delicious stewed peppers. We spend every July in this region and I'm thrilled to share this resto with all our friends.dont forget to order a couple of 'pizzas' for the table. Brick oven, perfectly done, drizzled with olive oil and tiny tomatoes. No sauce or cheese. It was perfect!
