Livorno restaurants

Livorno is just an hour's drive from Florence but the cuisine is distinctly different and Livorno is a great city for foodies and an easy day trip from Florence thanks to the Italian rail network. Being a port city, the cuisine is influenced by flavours from the sea, with cacciucco being a favoured local dish - it is a rich fish stew with a tomato base and includes various fish and seafood. You will find that many dishes in Livorno are flavoured with tomatoes, which were actually introduced to the region by the Spanish Jewish population.

As a popular holiday destination Livorno has many restaurants that you can chose for your dining experience on your holiday in Livorno. But you should be cautious to avoid the tourist traps that compromise quality and be sure you go to a restaurant that is going to give you the real Tuscan cuisine experience. Livorno has many popular restaurants, so reservations are a must. The specialities of the resort include the aforementioned cacciucco, galletto livornese, which is a special kind of local chicken, triglie alla mosaica (red mullet with tomatoes), cinque e cinque (chickpea pancakes served in a focaccia with a spicy sauce) and roschette, which are bread-like snacks.
