On our September 2002 trip we a Sunday lunch at Ristorante Daniela in San Casciano dei Bagni, in southern Tuscany. This is an excellent restaurant in a lovely, small town. They print out their menu for each day, so I was able to bring home a copy. They have the same menu in both Italian and English. This is the exact menu and prices with both the Italian and the English. (Compare with their menu in lire from October 2000.)
