Eating in Quarries of Carrara
Merenderia da Michel
You can stop by Michel just for a snack or a "apericena" (a middle way between a dinner and an appetizer), or stay for lunch or dinner based on focacce, platters of cheese and cold cuts, “lardo” at will. The atmosphere is friendly and the owner makes the climate very informal, gradually engaging a funny karaoke.
Surrounded by a stunning landscape and fully open on a square marble-paved, Venanzio is a great place to stop especially in summer, to enjoy the cool dining in one of the outdoor tables. The menu is one of those classic, typically homemade, but with a particular taste in revisiting the recipes enhancing the taste of a selection of superfine ingredients, including of course the “lardo” of Colonnata.
