The best culinary stops in the direction of Tuscany

When you think of Italy, you think of the wonderful climate, good wines and of course pasta y pizza. To get yourself in the Italian atmosphere already Breakzy has found six restaurants for you towards Tuscany. Culinary highlights, places to eat a fast but tasty pizza or a delicious ‘’dolce’’ (Italian for dessert). Have you arrived already in Italy? A small tip: do not order a salad next to your delicious pizza, and slicing your spaghetti is ‘’not done’’ for Italians. Just enjoy and chat with your table companions. Buon appetito!

Ristorante Rossini 
‘Ristorante Rossini’ is the ideal place for both lunch and dinner. The restaurant is atmospheric, cosy and Italian dishes of the highest quality are waiting for you. In addition to pasta, other culinary dishes are served, such as salmon from the grill or fresh vegetables. The prices of a main course vary between 9 and 25 euros. It is advisable to call in advance to make an reservation. Ristorante Rossini is open from Tuesday to Sunday from noon to midnight, from 3 PM till 5 PM they are closed. (This is by the way quite common in Italy).

Ristorante da Roberto
‘Ristorante da Roberta’, with this name it is almost obvious that the chef of this restaurant is Italian. His passion is preparing the real Italian dishes, but other international dishes are also presented on the menu. The restaurant at the port of ‘Merzig’ offers an outdoor terrace; guaranteed enjoyment in the summer! In addition to the main courses of around 20 euros they offer two varying lunch dishes per day. Having lunch is possible until 2 PM and for dinner they are open again from 5 PM.

Breakzy tip: If you want to enjoy the Italian culture and highlights a little longer (read: the wines), make sure you don’t have to use your car anymore. In Tuscany you will find many accommodations that you can book how you wish, Interhome.co.uk offers 2000 cool holiday homes for every group. The next morning (or just a week later), you get back in the car and it’s time to discover the rest of Tuscany. Planning to visit another country?
