In the village of Vicchio, in the Mugello area north of Florence there is a delightful little deli & restaurant called, “La Casa del Prosciutto” (the house of ham). IF you appreciate eating where the locals eat, what they eat and how they eat it . . . this is your place. You enter through the deli. The restaurant space is very simple with plank tables and wood stools. The butter yellow plaster walls are accented with hanging plates, pictures and copper cookware. Go there knowing some basic restaurant Italian (or bring a dictionary) and don’t expect your server to speak English. What you should expect is to eat some of the best Italian country cooking you’ve ever experiences. They serve what’s in season and truffles were in season when we were there. I had some of the best homemade pasta with a truffle sauce that I still dream about today. While staying in a nearby villa in Tuscany for a week with friends, we ate here twice. I dream about going back there again someday.
