Le Torre is an agriturismo above Fornoli. It looks wonderful in its lofty position and features in many photos.
There is accommodation at Le Torre…and a restaurant. We visited in late summer, just before the weather turned cool. There is a lovely terrace outside and great views.
The star of the show here is the antipasti. Be careful not to eat too much, as we did.
You need to leave room for the next course. The photos are a bit blurry, the light was fading.
I can’t show you dessert. We could not manage another course.
i look forward to a cosy dinner inside during winter.
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.
Viale Papa Giovanni XXIII
IIl Ghiottone is an unassuming bar and restaurant on the SS Brennero near Cocciglia.
They do a great lunch for just €10.
I had a prosciutto and mozzarella and delicious beans in an excellent tomato sauce.
My friend had a pork chop and a fresh salad.
Bread, water and wine are included.
Look out for the sign beside the road.
…and coming back the other way. I love this building.
Il Ghiottone means The Glutton. I think it is wonderful that there are so many places in Bagni di Lucca where delicious meals are offered at a great price.
