Costa Toscana
Tuscan coast cuisine
  • Sea tradition
  • Tuscan street food
  • Eat like a Tuscan

What to eat after a day at the beach along the Tuscan coast? Here is a list to the dishes you should not miss in the seaside cities.

Tuscan cuisine is best known for its meat dishes, such as crostini, Florentine steak and ribollita, but along the coast you can enjoy delicious fish dishes.

The sea offers many simple ingredients but cooked according to tradition that will promise you a plunge into the most delicious flavours of Tuscan cuisine: Spaghetti with nicchi, Palamita, Baccalà alla maremmana (whipped codfish), Polpo alla galera.

Livorno’s king is Caciucco: a soup with 13 types of fish that was born in the kitchens of fishermen, who in the evening cooked the unsold fish and met to talk about their day.

Number one of Tuscan street food is Cecina: a chickpea pie born during a storm from the union of chickpea flour and salt water.

Finally, let’s try two typical desserts! Schiaccia Briaca and Scarpaccia. The firt one is soaked in wine and Alchermes and seasoned with nuts and raisins. Scarpaccia is a cake typical of the Viareggio area with finely cut zucchini: the mix of sweet and salty is unusual but very curious!
