Thanks to some friends we discovered a wonderful restaurant at nearby Piano Di Giovano called Cappuccetto Rosso.
The restaurant is stylish and pretty and the menu very interesting. The food is a little more expensive than most in the area, but it is excellent and well worth the extra money.
For antipasti we shared a plate of delicious prosciutto and a selection of very well chosen cheeses with tasty accompaniments.
We had already chosen dessert, so missed primi piatti, which are charmingly called Early Earth and Early Sea. Here are our scrumptious main courses. Soft lighting doesn’t always make for the best photos, a couple are a bit fuzzy.
For dolce we chose chocolate mousse with pear, and mint parfait with chocolate sauce…both excellent.
Cappuccetto Rosso means Red Riding Hood…we will be back often.

Hope the big bad wolf doesn’t eat there (capuccetto rosso = little red riding hood)
We didn’t see him.
Looks like an interesting place with good food. Thanks for sharing!
It is very good and offers some different options from other places.
Looks good. We don’t eat out around Borgo a Mozzano anything like as much as we should, and i’m aware there are some good places to eat around there.
It is just outside Borgo a Mozzano, on the road towards Castelnuovo. I’m sure you will like it.
Gosh another great restaurant in beautiful Bagni di Lucca. The meals look wonderful. Your photos don’t look fuzzy. They are great.
It looks like the lavish lots of attention on the presentations well as making delicious food. You are the bomb when it comes to finding the best places to eat Deb…. Yet another string to your bow!
Appears to be a fine meal indeed.
Great, now I’ve read this post I’m hungry 🙂
