Viareggio-ish on Easter Monday?

mbfant Mar 31, 2013 01:28 PM

Thought I'd check the gang on this. We're returning to Rome tomorrow from Piedmont and should hit northern Tuscany about lunchtime. After three days of carnivorous excess, we (nine of us) would like to have fish, but with the holiday, Monday, bad weather forecast, we're not fixated on it. Any realistic suggestions?

    Lorenzo in Forte dei Marmi.

    Where did you go in Piemonte?

      I'm going to Forte this summer for a brief visit to friends and will try it then -- for today the weather is so bad the troops are going to insist on the inland route.

      We went to Locanda del Re in Boves because Franco is fixated on snails (we stayed there ten years ago and he's talked about it ever since), Osteria del Borgo in Carrù (taken by cousin), and Osteria Veglio in Annuziata/La Morra, where Elio Altare took us ten years ago (not that I would expect him to remember). They were all perfect in their different ways, especially for our group, which included two children. Veglio was a delight.

        The weather is so bad? Nor here in La Morra.

          Yes, it was cold and rainy when we left Vicoforte, and the forecast was bad for the coast. In the end, we didn't go anywhere -- just had panini on the way -- but I'm certainly going to try to get to Lorenzo this summer.
