“Fresh gelato, made the same day”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Forte dei Marmi is a snobby place. There's more Gucci, Pucci, and Fiorucci than any place I've ever been, and all the super cool wannabees that go with it. It's got to be seen, however, and it's nice to know that just a short walk away from the water is a jewel of a gelateria, La Chicca. There is everything here that brings you to an ice cream parlor, and what's more, it's right next door to a fabulous bar for those who'd prefer a cocktail. Way off the beaten path of trendy downtown, but just a short walk to get to. Kid's love it, and while they're loading their cones with toppings, Mom and Dad can have a Prosecco.

“excellent good value food in an unexpected place - and great views!”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

We only stopped off here because, en route from Pisa to Volterra, it was late lunchtime already and this seemed OK. Whenwe stepped inside a fairly ordinary-looking smallish place, things suddenly changed as we were led through to the terrace outside , with sweeping views over the roling hills. (and leading off the terrace there ios a larger indoor space as well). I'm assuming this is a family-run affair; service was swift and extremely friendly. The beer came chilled to perfection... and then came the food: excellent pasta, chicken and meat dishes respectively, generously sized, with the freshest ingredients and cooked just right. A mix of strong and subtle flavours, without being fancy but, well, just very good. The range available was surprising, and so was a good wine list.

We left relaxed, happy, and re-energised, and kept telling each other for days afterwards that, compared to some of the fancier places we tried later, La Chicca remained one of the best-value unexpected discoveries of our trip. Completely unpretentious, but just plain good.

So if you're stuck for a place to eat halfway between Pisa and Volterra....
