Delight in Italian-style pizza known as Quattro Formaggio flatbread, where you'll enjoy the savory flavors from cheese like mozzarella, ricotta, fontina, and gorgonzola cheese.

Enjoy sampling Tuscan wine like Rocca Delle Macie Chianti Classico as you pair it with a balsamic vinaigrette-infused local green salad before heading back to your pier.
