Dinner at Osteria Chingale Bianco

We walked to the Oltrarno from our hotel near San Lorenzo, and found the restaurant busy with wonderful scents coming from within. We began our “Last Night in Firenze Dinner” with strozzapretti for me, and spagettini with a delicious pesto for Brad. We had a great Pinot Grigio, and I asked the chef for the recipe: cooked spinach (pureed), ricotta, eggs, parmigano, then rolled in flour and boiled for 5 minutes. Does that sound correct, Diva? These were served in a butter sauce with a splash of cream if my taste buds are accurate. They MELTED in your mouth!!!

For our secondi, Brad had chingale with polenta, and I had a grilled veal chop. We shared a panna cotta with ciocolato on Brad’s half. This was a terrific food memory for our last dinner in Firenze!

Oh, Yum! It all sounds delicious!

We were staying in the Oltrarno on our last visit and checked out the menu at Cinghiale Bianco but never made a reservation, so we were out of luck! Next time . . .

Lisa Abramson:

Ciao! My husband and I were just there! The food is absolutely amazing! The staff is wonderful as well. A must if you are in Florence. But, must make a reservation because the place is small and very popular. Actually, I would love to have a some of their recipes!
