Isola Santa

Province
55030 Province of Lucca
Isola Santa

"It's a little island in the middle of a river. They have a monastery dated from 1260 and they built a hydroelectric power station there in the 70s that flooded the area. There's an amazing little restaurant called Casa Del Pescatore — have a sandwich there."

Ristorante Gilda

Mediterranean restaurant
Viale Italico, 85, 55042 Forte dei Marmi LU, Italy
Ristorante Gilda

"If you want something a bit more refined, go to Ristorante Gilda, a beach club in Forte dei Marmi. They do a lobster and champagne risotto that's really well balanced and fantastic."

Giacomo

Restaurant
Via del Marzocco, 19, 55045 Pietrasanta LU, Italy
Giacomo

"I would cruise down to Pietrasanta in the evening to watch all the Italians walk through the town at night. There's a great courtyard restaurant called Giacomo that’s focused mainly on fish. It's my favorite."

L’Enoteca Marcucci

Restaurant
Via G. Garibaldi, 40, 55045 Pietrasanta LU, Italy
L’Enoteca Marcucci

"L’Enoteca Marcucci in Pietrasanta is great for a drink and really good simple food. There are too many good places to eat in Tuscany and not enough meals in the day."

Albergo Pietrasanta

Hotel
Via G. Garibaldi, 35, 55045 Pietrasanta LU, Italy
Albergo Pietrasanta

"I'd stay in Pietrasanta at the Albergo Pietrasanta, which is a fantastic little mini hotel. They make a beautiful breakfast in the courtyard. The people who own the Albergo Pietrasanta are from Milan and they are big patrons of the arts. So they have their collection revolving through there and it's really interesting."

Piazza Duomo in Pietrasanta

Piazza

Piazza Duomo in Pietrasanta

"The quintessential scene in Tuscany I suppose, is the Piazza. Watching people do their early evening walk through town, with a sweater on their shoulders and their dogs preening. It's quite beautiful and quite the spectacle."

Patrick JOHNSON

Trattoria Sostanza

Restaurant
Via del Porcellana, 25/R, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy
Trattoria Sostanza

"My favorite restaurant in Florence is Trattoria Sostanza. The food is incredible. They do this butter chicken thing, which is reasonably rich, but it's phenomenal."

Bagno Sandro Rossi

Restaurant
Viale A. Vespucci, 34, 54100 Massa MS, Italy
Bagno Sandro Rossi

"There's a nice one called Bagno Rossi, which I like going to — the food's beautiful, and it's no-fuss."
