Eating In Marina de Grosseto
There are no photographs from our visit to Grosseto but I can tell you that we had a wonderful walk along the sea and found a fantastic restaurant to have supper in. We went to Ristorante Le Bocche. No-one there spoke English, and the menu’s were in Italian. Thankfully, by this stage of our holiday I was feeling very confident about speaking Italian and there was very little I did not understand. The bread and cover charge was €2.50. This was slightly higher than in other restaurants, but well worth it for the view of the sea and the divine breads we had while waiting for our starter. Dave and I shared a bottle of Morellino Bella Marsilia, a local red wine. We also shared a huge Antipasti of Insalata di mare tiepida. Our starter consisted of mussels, clams, octopus, squid, prawns. It was fantastic and more than enough for the two of us. I had Scaloppa Con Carciofi as my main meal and Dave had Risotto Oi Frutti Oli Movee Con Tioinero Di Spinoca. My meal was a delicious veal dish with artichokes which were in season at the time. Dave’s risotto consisted of shrimps, clams and langoustines. I had Marscapone Con Fragile for dessert and Dave had an espresso. It was also strawberry season, and the Fragile (strawberries) were fantastic. The bill came to €61, making it expensive, but it was well worth it.
