I know people feel it's a bit touristy but I've had two good decent meals there and besides, I love their salad.

I consider Paoli an old Sunday night standby. I know people feel it's a bit touristy but I've had two good decent meals there and besides, I love their salad.

Rain ordered the pasta Paoli and a veal dish and I started with their fresh salad and the cinghiale stew with polenta. I don't know what they do with their dressing for that salad but I love it not to mention the freshness and tastiness of the vegetables. The cinghiale could have been cooked a bit longer to make it a bit tenderer (is that a word?) but I still enjoyed it. Rain said her food was good but she did get the impression that it may have been pre-cooked and re-warmed - hard to tell.

I also love one of their desserts, which is those pastries (can't remember the name but it begins with a p - like cream puffs) {profiterole!} covered in rich chocolate sauce. Rain wanted to share an order but I wouldn't - greedy chocolate fiend that I am. She didn't believe I could polish off an entire order but I showed her :). That with a 1/2 carafe of house wine came to 120,000 Lira.
