The food is superb and is typical of the Chianti region. The extensive menu includes a range of delicious pastas as well as veal, rabbit, wild boar and several truffle dishes.
The first time we dine there we timidly select spaghetti carbonara, bruschetta al pomodoro drizzled in olio extra vergine di oliva from Rocca di Castagnoli and rabbit.
The second time we are a lot more adventurous and share ravioli burro e salvia, pici cacio e pepe, pappardelle al cinghiale, gigli pesto e pomodorni, gnocchetti di patate al pomodoro fresco e gamberetti, and some chargrilled vegetables, finishing with our favourite Italian dessert, tiramisu.
Of course the wine we drink is Rocca di Castagnoli Chianti Classico, a full-bodied red wine that washes down easily with the meal.
Prices are very reasonable with the bill coming to about €45 on the first night and about €65 on the second night plus a 10% discount because Andrea from Cavarchino B&B knows the owner.
