Restaurant for sale

World famous michelin Tuscany restaurant

For many years this was a tavern frequented by travellers moving from Lucca towards Garfagnana and has been in the same family since 1946. It has now been transformed into an elegant ambience revealing an exquisite attention to detail.
The restaurant has a light-filled main room. leading off are other more reserved rooms, as well as a characteristic outdoor area. The cuisine is typical of the mid valley area and has been reinterpreted with flair, offering Garfagnana wild mushrooms and spelt, Lucca soups, lamb and other alternative meat dishes.
A family owned and run restaurant since 1946 and jealously preserved by the owner Sauro and his staff.
The following extracts were taken from a recent article in The New York Times by Mark Bittman *
………La Mora is widely considered the best restaurant in the area of Lucca….. The explanation for that probably lies with precise execution, more formal ( and generally efficient) service, fancy linens and tableware……..  other features about La Mora that I like : the little garden and the open back room….. The food, however, is the focus, and it’s quite terrific…..
