Every day the chefs offer the 'dish of the day'
NIn the tradition of our Valdarno-area the fish has never been a traditional dish, for that matter, we far away from the sea. In families on Friday of "Eve" you could eat "poor" fish and preserved, there were no fishmongers. Herring, anchovies, sardines, canned codfish.
For the rich, once a week, I remember, passed the fishmonger with a strange "horn" which served as a "brilliant amplifier" and read: "Women ... it's the fishmonger, fried fish, sole, mussels, clams , squid, mullet, etc. ... ... " the dirge went further and further away...
Today the fish every day fresh, so in our restaurant will make periodic themed dinners with recipes and traditional fish such as stockfish and ‘Caciucco Livornese’, both succulent dishes.
ON DEMAND dinner of fresh fish, and always top quality.
