I’m posting this in both the Pienza and Montepulciano forum as I imagine that is where we will be doing most of our eating. My husband and I will be spending one week in an agriturismo close to Pienza. My husband is a very picky eater and I am worried that we will struggle to find restaurants where he will be happy to eat. Basically, he doesn’t eat fish, an absolute no-no, he can’t even bear the smell of it! With meat, he will eat steak (well done) he will also eat chicken and pork but wouldn’t be madly excited about it. I think he would try the pico and wild boar that I hear is a speciality in the area, but to be honest, his favourite thing to eat would be pizza and simple pasta and sauce.
I am just wondering if anyone could recommend a couple of restaurants in Pienza and Montepulciano that might be suitable. We would prefer low to mid range places, maybe €70 or less for dinner with a carafe of wine
Also, we will have a little kitchenette and would like to keep costs low a couple of nights, is there anywhere that we could buy nice food to cook ourselves? I wouldn’t want to cook from scratch, but can you buy fresh pasta, fresh sauces etc or are they frowned on in Tuscany! Thanks in advance :)
