Tirrena is a sleepy, old-fashioned coastal town, yet our coincidental discovery of 231 made our stop-over there more than worthwhile. We had already tried steamed mussels in Brussels, US East and West coasts, the Hague, Palermo, Barcelona and a whole variety of other places taking pride in their seafood; yet none of them came close to the taste and freshness of Tirreno 231’s little bucket full of them. This was a true feast and we have enjoyed every piece of it. Fried calamari and shrimps platter that followed was equally outstanding.
When we met the chef (and the owner), we knew all this was not by accident – a chef to have cooked for long years in New York, Rio de Janeiro, Brussels and other cities around the world and to have come back to enjoy his hometown. His lovely (Irish) wife is a further bonus for English speakers struggling with the Italian names of ingredients.
Thank you both, for a seafood feast dinner to be remembered for years to come…
