Wonderful restaurant in a small quaint village.

Directions: Located in the small village of Civitella Marritima, on the highway between Siena and Grossetto.

This was one of our best meals during our trip to Italy. We were staying in the village, so we were able to walk to the location. The food was presented very beautifully, innovative in some cases, and very good. It was also a great value.

We had two primi, two secondi, a bottle of wine, and water for a total of 57.10 euro. We started with lasagnette con fungi and a special primi that night which I cannot remember the name of. It was a tubular pasta with a sauce of sausage, zuchhini, olives, and tomato. Both were just excellent. For our secondi, we had cinghiale Stewed in tomato served over fried polenta, and a duck breast with honey and grapes. The cinghiale stew was very rich. The taste was excellent, it was a little too heavy for my taste. The duck breast was succulent and moist and very well prepared.

We also had water, and a bottle of 2003 Orciaverde Sangiovese Montecucco. If you are anywhere close to this location, I would highly recommend visiting Locanda Nel Cassero.
