Castelnuovo Berardenga: Da Antonio

Via del Chianti 28/32 , Phone: 0577-355321

Closing day: Monday

Reviewed by: Edna from NY, review #87

When: 2002

This was a fabulous fresh fish restaurant in the center of the Chianti region.

Directions: Opposite theater in town center.

The owner, a charmer, has only one menu - whatever has been caught that day and delivered to him from the coast's markets. You sit in his delightfully new restaurant and just brought course after course.

There are different dishes everyday. The evening that we were there we started with an antipasto of sushi quality fish followed by a crisp and tasty sauteed calamari. After that we had a delicately flavored spaghettini with tiny clams. The main course was a grilled branzino - filleted or whole, as desired. This was served with perfectly cooked asparagus and rosemary-roasted potatoes. The assortment of sorbets and gelato that followed slid down our throats perfectly and was a great end to a super meal. This was pricey but well worth it.
