Our host who lives just outside of San Gimignano, recommended this restaurant as a place that the local Tuscans dine. When we entered, we were greeted by one of the owners, Filippo, with a smile and told to sit where we we would like. We chose the patio. Antipasti course was Pecorino Al Forno (Sheep Cheese cooked in the oven) this dish when served was bubbling hot and ready to be served over fresh bread.
We were amazed as we sat and watched numerous other patrons come in that that this was truly a local restaurant. We were the only ones on the restaurant speaking English, yet Filippo spoke perfect English and was happy to make recommendations for our meal. He was spot on. Our meal was fabulous.
My first course was a special, Pici Salsiccia & Porcini- fabulous. My husband had Pappardelle Al Cinghiale- pasta with wild boar and tomato sauce. My main course was Fagioli All'Uccelletto Con Salciccie( white beans & Sausage)- so tasty, I ate every bite. My husband had Stracotto Al Chianti(slow cooked veal cooked on red wine) extremely thin, tender pieces of fork tender veal cooked in a scrumptious red wine sauce. Paired with local wine, our dinner was a true Tuscan dining experience.
For dessert we ordered the tiramisu- truly divine. We will be here for four more days and will definitely be back!
