Arriving in Bolgheri around lunch time being a crowd of twelve we choose the first restaurant which could accommodate us all. This was a good decision. The Caprese, truffle pasta and wines sold by the glass were excellent. You should not be in a hurry at this restaurant even though the ladies serving us did their best. Service and atmosphere...

I am a vegetarian, so when I ordered the truffle pasta, which a dish I've eaten several times and really enjoyed, I couldn't imagine it would come with pork fat globs on top!

We had lunch here today. A couple of the restaurants that were recommended by our guide were not open for lunch. La Merenda is a charming local spot in the tiny town center of Bolgheri. The atmosphere was of a rustic, family owned, village restaurant that caters to tourists and visitors. Insalate mista and caprese salad were very good. The... More
