Trattoria Gatto Nero

Roll from lunch at Il Posto to dinner at this trattoria just across the road. The menu here is verbal, so make sure to listen up. You’ll feel like you’re on an Italian grandmother’s terrace eating the earthy-fresh vegetables she picked from her garden that morning.

L’Enoteca Marcucci

Sip your way through an A to Z of regional deliciousness (there are 10,000 bottles in the wine cellar) while eating butter-soft steaks. If you’ve come to Tuscany for wine, there’s no better place to get your fill. Don’t believe us? Just ask Alfonso Cuarón and Paul Smith who are regular patrons.

Il Posto

This modern hole-in-the-wall is a must-visit for clean eaters with an appetite for Italian flavour combos. At Il Posto, the emphasis is on fresh fish dishes but it would be criminal to leave without trying several forkfuls of the blissful truffle pasta and branzino al forno.

Clara

Drive ten minutes out of Pietrasanta and you’ll find this seafood restaurant in Lido di Camaiore. What first opened as a pit-stop for weary marble merchants in the 50s is now a local institution known for its extensive seafood menu.
