This secret restaurant in Tuscany is real gold
if you are on a road trip among the green hills of Chianti. We got this tip from Emma's college that ran into this place when she went to Italy for a late summer weekend with her husband. When she told us about the restaurantshe said romantic. And the best way to experience these beautiful surroundings is really with someone you love. It is located on the top a hill on dirty roads where you have cross your fingers hoping not to meet another car.
is a beautiful whitestone house that gets all apricot in the warm Tuscany afternoon sun. After parking the car we got seated by table in the garden with trimmed hedges and an amazing view over Tuscany.
And the food O M G.
That squid ink risotto was to die for. We enjoyed an amazing two course dinner (we couldn't fit any dessert which was a shame). Both had the black risotto for starter and for our main Adam enjoyed amazing duck breast with blueberry sauce while Emma had perfectly cooked rosemary lamb racks with beetroot.
To drink we obviously had Chianti wine
(since we were in the Chianti district) and some prosecco for starter. When we drove home that night it was pitch black. The roads were going like serpentines around the hills and we felt way too tipsy to drive. But it didn't matter. We had just had the most idyllic romantic Tuscany experience we probably will ever have.
