...In chic Pietrasanta, an artistsí town at the base of the mountains where Michelangelo once trudged the quarries looking for the best and purest blocks of Carrara Marble, they claim that there are more restaurants per head than anywhere else on the Tuscan coast...'
Anthony Capella, Sunday Times 03 May 2009

The autostrada between Pietrasanta and Lucca provide the key to a long unsolved problem - how to combine a beach holiday and within half an hour be in a different world altogether.
Roger Bray, London Evening Standard.

We tried a different restaurant each evening, going up into the hills behind Pietrasanta to a cheap rustic place one night, then along the coast about fifteen minute drive away to an elaborate restaurant overlooking the harbour with a very thirties atmosphere.
Adrianne Pielou, Mail on Sunday.

Pietrasanta is a region caught in a neat time warp preserving it's heritage with a semi-grateful nod in the direction of the twentieth century
Brian Whittle, Lancashire Life.

Our view of Marina di Pietrasanta.....A tranquil part of Italy with very few foreign tourists but plenty of stylish Italians. That's the impression we came away with, masses of style. It's not a cheap holiday and you do have to be an individual.
Travellers Check, Granada Television.

I first discovered Marina di Pietrasanta last July, a wonderful destination with something for everyone. Superb beaches with a mountain backdrop, tennis, golf, culture, history and art. But most important from my point of view - great Italian cuisine, uncommercialised cooking! Take only the best ingrediants, blend them with a large helping of Italian style and flair, serve in a relaxed, bustling atmosphere and savour the flavours of Italy. Bon Apetito!
Paul Heathcote, Restaurateur.
