Osteria Antica Mescita is around the corner from the hotel where I was staying, so I decided to give it a try. This place is wonderful! The salad of arugula, pear slices and brie cheese was incredibly fresh, and a joy. The zuppa di farro (soup with a savory tomato base, farro and two types of beans) provided me with a dilemma. On the one hand, I wanted to savor every spoonful, and on the other, I couldn't wait to get to the next one. On the first night, my secondo (entree) was a generous serving of baccala alla livornese (lightly salted cod, with a yummy seasoned tomato sauce) that was one heavenly mouthful after another. On the second night, I had a wonderful preparation of lamb (not always my favorite meat, but this time around, it was seasoned and cooked just right). The tiramisu (this time, I left room for dessert) was flavorful and very light in texture, just as I needed it to be. The wine (by the glass) selection may have been small, but I did try a few, and they were all very good. Per the suggestion of the server, I had a digestivo (after dinner liqueur) named brodo di giuggiole, made from a dried fruit native to Toscana. It was very satisfying. On another note, on the second night, I was treated like a returning member of the family. I just love this restaurant!
