We picked this hotel on a whim while we were looking for a base to stay for the night while touring the "Chianti Highway". We were a little nervous when we arrived and discovered that our rooms were on the 2nd Floor (that's the 3rd floor in American terms). Not to fear, the owner scooped up each bag one at a time and had all 4 suitcases in the rooms in no time. No easy feat because of the weight of them. We were a little tired from our drive and tantalized by the scents from the kitchen wafting in the hallway, so we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. We were so very glad that we did! Yes the food was "local fare", is that a bad thing? It was unbelievably fresh and so beautifully prepared that we felt that it was some of the best we had during our 23 days in Italy. I don't know how anyone can be “disappointed” by fresh pasta prepared in a delicate saffron (locally acquired) sauce and the most tender rabbit I have ever eaten. The owner was the most friendly and helpful guy. He recommended to us several local sites and wineries for visiting. He and his brother, who was helping in the restaurant, were just the best. They were so great that we stayed an additional day and ate in the restaurant the second night as well. We were so lucky to find this gem of a place with such wonderful people in the heart of one of the most beautiful locations in the world. All 4 of us agreed that we wished we had more time to spend here at Locanda II Gallo.
