We were staying at a local B&B a few doors down (80 Via Gallo). The owner of the b&b told us to try the night before but when we showed up at 9:45 they asked us if we had reservations.. Place was mobbed..(Locals mostly.). We had to get a early reservation at 8PM..(Love Italians..He apologized because he could only give us the early seating..Too funny..When we left at 10 the place had line out the door).
We were seated immediately and the first sign we see on the wall is " do not ask for the meat to be cooked another way, we only cook it rare". Basically telling tourist you eat it rare or order something else.. Also, DON"T order cappuccino..Also, another tourist sign.(Most tourist don't know you don't order cappuccino after noon.)
So we first started with a liter of red house wine which was as usual for any table wine in Tuscany very good. We did not order an appetizer because we were still stuffed from pranzo (lunch). I ordered for primi Pici Pasta with white rabbit meat sauce and black peppercorn. Amazing dish!!! pictures to follow. (Also, i might add that my wife told the waitress she wanted to practice her Italiano and she pulled up a chair and sat to listen and help if need be. (My wife did fine in ordering). I ordered the veal osso buco with peas/pancetta for my main course with a side of tuscan style potatoes. She ordered filet with pesto on the side and asparagus. (Rare of course).
My wives dish was mouth watering and perfectly prepared. My dish was very good but as with Osso Buco in Italia they tend to use the leg of the veal and can be more fatty and not as much meat. But overall a great dish and the side dishes were excellent. We also had dessert and the Panna Cotta with strawberries on top was the best panna cotta we have ever had.. OFF the hook. The strawberries pureed on top were stupendous along with the flavor and texture of the panna cotta... Meal came to 58 Euro and we also had a large bottle of sparkling water...to top the night off, a accordion player came in and played some music... :)
