This is a quick addition to our 19 May post about Lidos while we prepare for a holiday in Sardegna starting Friday. You will hear about the Emerald Coast (Costa Smeraldo) of Sardegna (Sardinia) soon.
We discovered that our creative friend, Vincenzo Grisolia of Ristorante Vigri’, has opened a whole new lido across the street from the restaurant, and 50 meters from our other friends Carmelo and Antonella at Lido da Pietro. There is a lot of new competitive development going on along the lungomare of Scalea! As you can see in the photos, he has done some very artsy work on this seasonal lido. Quite nice with giant plants, turf and the artwork panels. Di loved the design of it, simple but elegant.
Looking down on Lido Heaven. Lido Vigri has the pale red umbrellas with the white tents. Our friend Carmello's is next door with the yellow umbrellas.
A well appointed Lido has a clean restroom, changing areas, free shower, and a hot shower you pay for in a change machine, food, drink, umbrellas and lounging beds. They don't all have mirrors, but Vigri's does, and it's in the form of artwork. Love it. What look like cutouts below are actually mirrors.
Chef Vincenzo wishes you well and hopes you will stop by someday. He says Lido Vigri' will be open for evening entertainment starting this Friday evening.
He rests up here after a busy lunch shift at the restaurant:
