We had great time at “Sette di Vino”.
In the small Piazza di Spagna, surrounded by its quite and absolutely pleasant feel, we tasted several perfectly home made tuscan appetizers, cold cuts of the highest quality, and a selection of fresh and aged Pecorino accompanied by the house’s bulk wine, a fresh, definitely enjoyable Rosso di Montalcino perfectly matching the simple typical courses on the menu.
I recall how the lovely taste of a thick bed of Ricotta (local cottage goat cheese) atop Bruschetta (the weel known toasted slice of bread) sprinkled with some excellent and sweet extra vergine oil, just dissolved bite after bite in my more and more watering mouth. Beautiful!
And won’t forget about:
- the juicy, balanced and tasteful house’s “Sottoli” (various pickles of whole artichokes and spring onions, sliced zucchini and eggplants);
- Bruschetta ai Fegatelli (pork livers on toasted bread);
- the very tasty and meaty grilled sausages;
- the amazingly smooth Ceci and Cannellini (chickpeas and white kidney beans) simple salads, seasoned with just chopped raw Cipollotti (bulb summer white onions) and Olio extra vergine.
Do not look for a steak or pasta here, they’re not in the menu, but pamper yourself with the house’s set of remarkable “top notch” nibbles and traditional simple dishes.
Country style (home made) desserts were fine as well, and the “Vin Santo” was on the house.
The staff was very accommodating and Luciano, the owner, treated us like friends throughout the evening.
I gladly recommend Sette di Vino, a wonderful informal experience that furtherly enriched our fine stay in Tuscany.
Check out? Cheaper than standard tuscan fares! As an average, less than 20 euros per person.
We could'nt just ever ask for more.
