Description: Since 2004 in Ciciano, is situated between the villages of Chiusdino and Montieri, the “Val di Merse” (river Merse Valley) and the “Colline Metallifere” (Metalliferous Hills), on the antique Massetana, the road that joined Siena to Massa Marittima and the seaside… The cuisine of this countryside restaurant has the peculiarities of the old home cooking, aslike the Landlady used to surprise her commensals with small newness, remaining anyway bonded to the Tuscan, Lombard and Piedmont traditional cuisines, origins of the Galli Family. The location is a piece of the family-home… and divides in two nice and warm rooms, in, spring and summer the flowery terrace is the main attraction of the restaurant, the shopping corner (open between April and October) offers good local cured meats and ewe’s milk cheeses, Tuscan, Tuscan wines, the fragrances of the TASTY region!! waiting for you soon in Ciciano!

On an evening out to the opera at San Galgano we took the recommendation of the reviews for Dai Galli nearby in Ciciano and we were in for a treat! (The other reviews so far are in Italian so hopefully this one will encourage more English-speakers to seek out this wonderful trattoria in the Tuscan hills). It's an ideal stop on a day-trip taking in San Galgano or before an evening event at San Galgano which is only 10 minutes drive away. The restaurant is easy to find and there is plenty of free parking right next door (always a plus).

This was one of our favourite restaurants in Tuscany. Mum is in the kitchen cooking her own special home recipes, including Pollo Sbronzo - which was excellent and you won't find it anywhere else - in fact, almost all of the menu was home made. Daughter is out front with a warm welcome and great humour. All four of us ate very well. The home-made pasta was a real treat and it was all good value.

Check out the blog with their latest menus here: http://bistrodaigalli-trattoria-bb.blogspot.com/

To top it off the 12 Note blues duo were performing on the terrace that evening so we had a ball before zipping off to see Don Giovanni! Highly recommended.

(Top tip: If you're driving down from Siena go up through Chiusdino, stop at the top and enjoy the magnificent view before going on to Dai Galli in Ciciano for dinner).
