Tuscan "Temples of taste" in and around Lucca

Lido Vannucchi is a Tuscan photographer who has travelled many miles to immortalize the best Tuscan chefs, restaurants, farmers and producers. For the magazine ItaliaSquisita (here is the link to the original article) he has created a tasty itinerary  with the best restaurants between Lucca, Viareggio Forte dei Marmi and the Versilia area of Tuscany. Here are some food stops suggested by Lido: - Go to Al Tambellini 1870 (Via per S. Alessio 1403, Lucca) for a perfect Italian breakfast or to enjoy a lunch in a beautiful local osteria.
