We walked in for dinner without reservations and the kind owner gladly invited us in. This tiny restaurant in an obscure road in Montalcino is a bit hard to find but in the end was really worth finding. The two rooms filled quickly and the last time we counted, four pairs of customers without reservations after us were turned away.
Fresh grilled vegetables and white beans cooked to perfection served as primi piatti. Second course of pici pasta cinghiale ( wild boar) was apparently the chef's specialty and our formal conversion to gastronomic Tuscan religion. The smell and flavors- traditional as they were- were just as complex to the palate. The beef stew's tender hint of anchovies paired well with the suggested Chianti classico. Our desserts showed their artsy side. A G-clef and a fire on my crème brulee may sound like the sum of two of Vivaldi's seasons but absolutely here, for us, it was a perfect night.
