Ristorante Francy

Reviewed By w0bblylegs

I notice another reviewer said the beef tartare wasn’t fresh. It certainly was fresh because it is served / created with much fanfare at the table and we thought it was one of the best steak tartare we have had. Overall, both the food and service was excellent and pretty faultless. My only criticism is the venue. The food was served in a bland and clinical setting. I understand that food is normally served outside in a garden setting but due to the extreme heat they retreated indoors to the comfort of air con. (A shame because the outdoor area is beautiful at night with subtle and atmospheric lighting.) Thank you for your nice comments about our Ristorante Francy.We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the food,and the serivice. Your words are an important present for our staff and its daily efforts.Hoping to see you again, we send you our best regards.LHP Hotels Montecatini Palace Ristorante FrancyRestaurant ManagerGaetano Patti

Researched this before we got to Montecatini .. the table setting, table lamps, the service were all second to none, the lady who served us had worked in Melbourne Australia & she was charming, we had 3 courses each & they were all perfection, the lady owner was so attentive & really cared that everything was right, we felt so special we wanted to go back, just ran out of time on our holiday, we will be back & this will be our first meal. Thank you so much for such a perfect. Evening.

This is a very cozy restaurant next to the famous gardens furnished with Tuscan taste. We were there for dinner and the service was amazing. We were seated at a table next to a window overlooking the garden. Food - we had the menu di degustazione mare - was above average and was to our taste. As we went there after Easter we had a quiet and joyful evening. Recommended!

Bar Caffe Carlo IV

Reviewed By bpmurray

We dropped in here for a glass of wine while visiting the village. The area is quite beautiful with stunning views, so it was a pleasant stay in the cafe. The service was helpful and friendly, and the wine was quite delicious.

Reviewed By Ann J

We had dinner here tonight and it was delicious. As we arrived there were people standing out side on the terrace. It felt more friendly and local than touristy. The service was friendly and open - and the host (owner?) speaks english. We stupidly forgot to ask his name. The food was simply divine. We had two pasta primo - green ravioli with ricotta and a seafood carbonari. For secondi I had a tuna in a Japanese style and my brother had beef. The tuna was delicious with a flavour I wasn't expecting and the beef was melt in your mouth perfect, tender and flavourful. My sister had the fish and chips and they were happy to do it grilled for her.There was a family group of 22 plus another group of maybe 8, and a few smaller tables like ours and they seemed to do very well bringing out food for the whole table at the same time. Because of the large group the service was a little slow, particularly to get our bill, but we totally understand the challenge of such a large group and agreed that they handled it very well. Definitely recommend if you're in the area and want a delicious meal, reasonable price and friendly, tasteful atmosphere.

We live on the next door hill, and have been bringing friends (of all nations) here for a few years now. Without exception they have been wowed by the blend of Tuscan basics and Japanese subtlety. Not everything is to everyone's taste. But it is all so interesting and so unusual, and we keep coming back. The highlight last night was the green risotto with raw red prawns; and the tempura of vegetables and fish, followed by ravioli stuffed with ricotta and Parmesan with scallops in a white wine sauce. Also the beef tartare with a black oyster and garlic sauce. Everyone should try this place at least once. Not cheap, but anywhere else this would have rosettes and cost you twice as much

Pierantonio Antico Ristorante Forassiepi

Reviewed By Kjetil E

Two weeks ago I visted Ristorante Forassiepi together with a family member. I did write a review, but based on communication with the upset chef I deleted it and will by this rewrite my comments on the visit.I have lived more than 60 years by the Noth Sea, so fish and other “seafood“ are well known. Due to different reasons I have cooked in the kitchen for more than 50 years but I do not call myself a chef, yet. The last 6 weeks, and two more to come, I have enjoyed learning more about the Italian kitchen so I am better prepared to invite neighbours, friend, family or other visitors that would like to dine with us in Montecarlo.I am also pleased to see I have catched up with 100.000 readers on my reviews on Tripadviser that I hope read my reviews as I read others. To find good or challenges with restaurants I like to vist when I am in a particular area.So back to Ristorante Forassiepi. Over the 17 years visiting Lucca and the area this was my third visit the Ristorante Forassiepi. Previous I have been reasonable pleased even it is 5 years since last time.I was very pleased, even we were prepared to come back. The person who took my reservation noted wrong day. Just the way I want it. See a table empty for 3 hours instead of have other people dine in between is waste. We wanted to check out their menu and taste the food. So two hours for us should be more than enough, normally. I poped into the chef just briefly before we were seated. The restaurant is obvius a place for fine dining. The clients this evening also indicated this.The menu is interesting and we appreciated the introduction soup, nice presentation and very good tast. For starter I had choose Octopus. I very often do that when I see it because I just love it. And this was prefect cooked, just delicious. Primi was our first disappointment. Both of us had risotto and it was not cooked enough. The plating was not as you expect a first class restaurant and the tast from what should be a marinated salmon disappear. I had picked Scampi (Nephrops norvegicus). Taste ok, noted is that you can choose from fruit or vegetables along with the scampi. I had fruit, so dolce along with my second and it lifted the dish completeness. However, again I was very disappointed with the presentation. I eat a lot with my eyes so I have different expectations depend on what kind of restaurants I visit.Second, disappointment of the day was when my family member ordered Lobster. As mentioned, lived by the sea expectation of a European Lobster when Lobster is put on the menu is there, so if any would like lobster at Ristorante Forassiepi, ask what kind of lobster are on the menu this day. Looking at their video on Facebook lobster is European Lobster present, but that was not what was given us. In general service is good. Based on the high priced menu it is easy to see they spend a part of that with having staff available, both in the kitchen and the front. Chef Antonio Pirozzi, has his 35 years pluss in business, but as years goes it is not as easy to watch all and keep a hand on everything. That we did not turn any dish back to the kitchen, sorry about that, just not something we do. I rather tell the story what kind of experience I have and leave it with that. This time was a “cosi..cosi” experience, hope to visit again and that it will be better. White wine from Enzo Carmangiani was good and was a good match to our dishes.
