Description: We are just outside of Florence. We’ve left the city behind us and have taken the famous Secondary Road n. 222, better known as the Chiantigiana, towards Siena. Beforeentering Strada in Chianti we have on our left the Ristorante Il Caminetto del Chianti known for years for its traditional Tuscan quality cuisine yet not forsaking a few items of national character. The term “Country Restaurant” that can be read on the sign located on its rustic facade is not a misnomer: it is a chameleon-like locale that knows how to be elegant and romantic while at the same time simple and traditional due to its 16 years of passionate family management. The seasonal menu choices are the result of careful research of regional culinary tradition: therefore, next to the “Great Tuscan Classics” there are extraordinary dishes that are now almost forgotten or at least obsolete like Peposo, Carabaccia and Matuffi that come back to life on the Caminetto del Chianti table. The secret to this restaurant’s quality cuisine is found mainly in its use of locally produced prime quality products. Great care is also taken in selecting wines. The excellent house wine cellar, in fact, hosts more than 450 labels, originating mainly from the local area. When the weather is hot, you can also eat on the panoramic terrace under the shade of the linden trees, while in winter your meals will be heated by the slow and welcoming fire of the large fireplace that gives the restaurant its name.
