We first stumbled on La Chiusa a decade or so ago when we were driving around in Tuscany and kept seeing signs advertizing La Chiusa. We tromped in dressed in shorts and tourist gear and entered upon a little oasis of utter Italian elegance. We were about to leave, thinking we weren't quite decked out for something of this level, especially with small kids in tow, but the waiter immediately ran over, welcomed us into the dining room and Alberto and Dania proceeded to fuss over us and lavish on us one of the best meals we have ever had. I have since bought their cookbook and have been impressing guests ever since--even Italian foodies-- with my attempts at the simple elegance of Dania's cuisine, everything from perfectly textured panna cotta to pappardelle, stuffed zucchini flowers etc. We have been back about 5 times since and have stayed at their inn as well, which is equally memorable. They also arranged a little foodie tour for us, telling us the hidden gems in the area, ending up with the white truffle festival at San Giovanni D'Asso. Absolutely memorable.
