On the road from Bagni di Lucca to Abetone at Fabbriche di Casabascana you will find Trattoria Bar Topo Gigio.
I had heard it was a fun place to stop for coffee or lunch so with some friends I decided to try it.
The tables were all full, but fortunately somebody left as we arrived and we found a spot. It is always a good sign when a place is packed at lunch time.
The service is brisk and friendly and soon our lunch arrived.
We ordered ravioli with the Gigio sauce, which is deliciously spicy.
The gnocchi came with the same sauce, but there were several other we could have tried.
We all ordered the Milanese with a side order of salad and chips…all good.
Topo Gigio is a fun place to stop…I will return.

Looks tasty! Do you remember the act Topo Gigio?
The food was great. Yes, I do remember the show.
The Milanese looks great. I am sure it tastes even better!
We were very pleased with our lunch.
It is always a good sign of how good the food is when you see all the tables taken. My kind of lunch.
Topo Gigio was full of workers…always a good sign.
That’s true…one of the best meals we ever had in France was at a restaurant filled with truck drivers.
