On our way from Voltera to Siena we were in need of a quick bite to eat. We saw the flags out front and decided to pull off at Locanada Il Boschetto. We are not hard to please when it comes to Italian food, but were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the pastas, especially the one with wild boar. More than anything, we were impressed with the quaint ambiance and the friendly staff. We would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone driving thought the countryside looking for some delicious and reasonably priced pasta and an interaction with some friendly Italians.

Gimignano, with its majestic towers, 35 from Siena, with its famous Palio and 45 from the nearest sea.
