Order the bistecca alla Fiorentina, it will be the experience of a lifetime! Quaint and simple restaurant in a small town in Tuscany, the food is to die for.

We were staying nearby at Castello di Montegufoni. Our plan was to dine at a restaurant in Florence; HOWEVER, we couldn't find it, were about to be run over by traffic and decided to tuck tail and head back to Montagnana. We decided to wander into Il Focalare and were so happy with that decision. It is a family owned & staffed restaurant with charming ambience. The food - especially the house wine and the grilled pork - were wonderful. We enjoyed it so much we returned the next night and ordered the Bistecca Florentine. Highly recommend it!

The restaurant was on the main road and easy to find. It opened at 8 pm and we had reservations but I'm not sure we would have needed them. We saw other diners order the steak and it seemed too much for the two of us since we wanted to try some of the other dishes and dessert. The arugula and peccorino salad was fresh and tasty. My husband had the chicken and rabbit, I had the pappardelle in meat sauce. They made a half portion pasta pommodoro for my 9 year old daughter. The chocolate torte for dessert was delicious. The service was great, our waiter had an excellent recommendation for a local wine. We'd go again and try the steak.

You have to try the steak! It's a little tricky getting there, so get good directions before setting off in the dark.
