We were staying at the inn at Badia a Coltibuono nearby and the staff recommended Papposileno. It's in a former church so lots of atmosphere tucked into a corner of the tiny town of Cavriglia. Our meal started with two huge "crostone" which are an oversize version of bruschetta. Each one took up a whole dinner plate. The first was pumpkin and melted pecorino cheese. The second was indescribably delicious--black cabbage and some local white beans seasoned with olive oil. These two dishes sound simple and they are made with honest, straightforward ingredients but they were unforgettable. For seconds one of us had the maltagliati (odd shaped fresh pasta) with a fresh tomato sauce and the other two shared a veal T-bone steak with shredded lettuce and tomatoes. The portions are large so don't over order. For example the two crostone were more than enough for three. Our waiter spoke good English and gave us recommendations for wineries to visit in the area. No prices on the menu but about par for the area.
