Origa: Bar Catene

Reviewed by: Karen from PA, review #231

When: 2000

Good restaurant in a small town.

Directions: Orgia is south of Sovicille.

Our villa owner made this reservation and chose the menu with our blessing. She also showed us the way earlier in the day. It is in a tiny town we would not have found otherwise. Worth the find, though. We were served soup, pasta, Chianina beef (which they presented to us before cooking), grilled vegetables, and dessert. After each course we were offered more and to their surprise had seconds of beef and veggies.

When: 1996

On Suzanne Cohen's restaurant list.

Directions: Our advice - park at the edge of the village. Do not drive into the village - we had to back out!

We ate here in 1996. We liked the restaurant, but could not remember its name (until Karen sent in her review). The waiter was very amusing when we asked about vegetarian dishes and went through the whole menu pointing out what was vegetarian and saying "no meat! no meat!" He even did this with the dessert list!!
