And that's saying a lot since, as is commonly said, one can't get a bad meal here!! Believe me, we've tried, eating our way from one end of the city to the other. But this little place was the sine qua non of heavenly Tuscan cuisine. We had the six-course seafood lunch --- our sole meal for the day--- and it included a delicious bottle of Tuscan white wine (A varietal; we're usually dedicated supertuscan wine drinkers, but this was delightful --- clean and refreshing). A melt-in-your-mouth shrimp and artichoke salad was followed by an even more delicious tender squid and sundried tomato salad. This was followed by a lightly sauteed cuttlefish and kale, and then a very delicately battered salted cod. Maddone!! We barely had time to catch our breath before a delicately seasoned bacala verdure appeared --- the ultimate comfort food, but still light and creamy. The final course was a roasted plate of potatoes with polpo (octopus), the latter of which was not the least bit rubbery. Il dolci was a simple but delicious crema with fresh blueberries, raspberries and pomegranate seeds. The service was impeccable but still warm and friendly, and Chef Guiseppe and his sous chefs rendered a meal we'll remember the rest of our days. When we finally stumbled out onto the Piazza Santa Croce we were out a mere 70 euros (remember: six courses plus a bottle of wine!) To say we highly recommend La Botte is an understatement!
