Giacomo Bulleri has always been hungry for life. even now after 91 years, three restaurants, one patisserie, one coffee shop and one tobacco shop! a Tuscan chef with his toque(chef’s hat) always on his head. “Giacomo bistrot” is the second in line; with a French touch, an emblematic bookcase and lots of warm shades of red.
