Lunch at Cappuccetto Rosso

Cappuccetto Rosso is quickly becoming one of my favourite restaurants in the area. The food is well presented and delicious and the service is very friendly and efficient.

Their recent lunch special was too good to resist.

Before the first course there was an arancino amuse bouche.

The plate of mussels was very good. Fortunately there was plenty of bread…the sauce was too delicious to leave behind.

Spaghetti vongole is one of my favourite Italian dishes. This one is a little different, it has tomato, but I liked it a lot.

Even though I was quite full I did manage to eat the third course of mixed, fried seafood.

There was no room for dessert…pity.

Cappuccetto Rosso is not far from Bagni di Lucca in Gioviano.

Great food at Cappuccetto Rosso

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.
