Small dark wine bar/trattoria is listed in Osterie d'Italia. We enjoyed it very much, especially the wine and the expertise of the owner who helped select it.
The place is really small, with about 8 tables.
We drank a fabulous Brunello di Montalcino. Interesting - I had asked if they had any half bottles - the place has an extensive list. He said no but...he came out from the back with this bottle of Brunello that had about three quarters left in it. I said "va bene" and it was well worth the 20 euro he charged us for it.
The menu was almost all beef dishes which was a little disconcerting to me but I ordered the special pasta of the day which was strognozzi with meatballs and zucchini. The meatballs were so tasty! Each one was about the size of a marble - tiny and yummy. Ken had lentil soup which was just OK and then he had pasta with beef ragu which he loved. The pasta itself was really nice and homemade as was mine.
For my secondo I just had a dish of simple sauted bietole (chard). I swear it was the most delicious thing I've had in a long time. We also enjoyed a fabulous dessert called crema di mascarpone - like a very light mousse with little pieces of very dark chocolate on top. We shared it with a glass of sweet malvasia wine. It was the perfect pairing -each sip revealing the flavors of the sweet.
57 euro for two including the wine.
