Excellent meal in a small restaurant in a town not known for excellent meals.

We ate here on a Friday night in early July. We didn't have reservations but a few tables were available. It's a small ristorante and it's very attractive; all stone with a coved ceiling and a view down the stairs into the wine cellar.

We started with prosciutto e melone, soft drinks, and a bottle of vino rosso from Certaldo. My wife ordered a primo that we both remember being good but neither of us can remember what is was. My daughter had parpadelle with a chinghiale sauce which was really something special and my son had a chinghiale "steak" which he says was probably his favorite entree of the entire vacation. It was tender and very flavorful. I had bocconcini, a pork steak cooked in a chianti reduction. It was one of the best dishes I've ever tasted. My wife and I also had sides of grilled veggies - very tasty.

After our 3 week/16 restaurant trip was over, all of us agreed that Peruca was one of our top three meals. The bill came to 71 euros including wine, water, coperto for 4. If we had all ordered both primo and secondo and added in a second antipasto, the bill would have been up in the range of 105 euros - a very reasonable cost for food of this quality.
