A new restaurant in Montisi this year is “Il Barrino”. Walking by one day, we were intrigued with the open door view inside the restaurant. Beautifully decorated now, it is actually a cave they discovered many years ago. The city was above and this was the underground storage where a shoot would pour grain down into. The manager, Alessandro, offered to show us the modern furnished wine tasting room in the back. A large tasting table with chairs in the center was surrounded by their extensive wine racks. In one corner was an antique meat slicer and in the other an antique bottle corker. We decided to stay for lunch and Alesandro, who speaks excellent English told us about their menu. The salad greens were picked a few hours earlier from a nearby farm. The potato cake was potatoes similar to our mashed on the bottom, then ham and cheese and then another layer of potatoes all baked in the oven. The eggplant Parmesan was also delicious. We didn’t have time to try out the other new restaurants that make Montisi a good place for travelers to visit.
