Let’s hope the surging water doesn’t cause damage.
Thank you Chris for the photos.
A friend has just sent a photo and short video of the view from my apartment.
I wish I was there. I love it when it snows in Ponte a Serraglio!
Es Vedra opened recently in Fornoli. It is on the road out of town, just before the bend as you head towards Barga and set back from the road a little to allow parking in front.
As well as pizza there is an excellent taglieri.
It came with pasta fritta and flat bread.
We all ordered the spicy pizza with salami, pepperoncini and nduja. It was delicious!
The restaurant is bright and new and the young staff cheerful and helpful.
It is a great addition to Fornoli.
