Italian on the Beach, Bali
One of the first upscale beach restaurants on the well-developed stretch of Seminyak beach (and now one of several fine Italian options in the area), La Lucciola draws crowds to its beautiful frangipani-tree-scented beachfront to enjoy Italian-inspired fare and refreshing granitas (blended fruit and ice drinks, with or without alcohol). The thatched, two-story building offers many vantage points from which guests can watch the sun set over the water.
