La Piazzetta del Borgo is a must for people who appreciate creative, well-prepared food. The chef, Andrea Castellacci, from Sicily, does a great job of making local foods as well as dishes from other regions in Italy. Not only is the presentation elegant, the flavors are so carefully executed that the main ingredient is never obscured. We were fortunate staying at Le Podere in Monache, an agriturissmo, across the street. Andrea's wife, Cinzia, was the manger of this property. She was so helpful and personable that at the end of our 2-week stay, we all felt like she and Andrea as well as their beautiful little girl, Sofia, had become our extended family in this amazingly beautiful area of Tuscany. We had the pleasure of attending the restaurants second annual food festival, tasting some amazing foods like: Octopus, tripe, Lampredotto, Panelle, Sfincione, Porchetta, Sicilian Cannoli, Crocante, chestnut torta etc.
In you're anywhere near this tiny village, make it a priority to visit this hidden gem and have some
of the BEST food in Tuscany.
