This is one of those places that you'd never enter if you just pass by. And we saw several people doing just that - looking inside and going away. I felt sorry for them. This is a small place in a quiet street. The decor is simple, but charming. We came in at 3 pm, the place was almost empty, but still open. After reading the reviews, my wife and I were keen on eating here. Claudio came to take care of us, and offered a list of available dishes for the day. Starting, a wonderful bruschetta, simple, just the bread, olive oil and black pepper. Then a mixed tray of pecorino and salumi. Wow, from fresh, soft pecorino to 1-year cured. And prosciutto crudo, peperoni, and others that I can't remember the name. Finally, some pasta. Filled pasta with a souce of almonds and pecorino for my wife and a macheronchini with a duck ragù for me. All this with a small productor Chianti Classico, personal recommendation from Claudio. The best wine I tasted in Tuscany so far. This was more than a meal, it was a travel through tastes and culture. And thanks to Claudio and his wife, this was an unforgettable afternoon. Cannot forget his anxiety in searching for the words in English that could describe what he meant when we asked about the cheeses and the wines.
