Le Panzanelle, an excellent restaurant in Chianti

This is one of our regular haunts. The food is very homely, well cooked, extremely tasty. No bizzarre food sculptures, plate-art, or flashy presentation. Just very good food, and at a decent price. The servings are generous, so sharing is always an option if you want to try lots of things. The wine list is also excellent.

There are plenty of traditional country dishes, like hare and the ubiquitous cinghiale, but sometimes I just feel like eating my favourite food, lasagne followed by steak & patate fritte. Beat that!

We go a couple of times a year and have never been disappointed. There’s a lovely atmosphere, and an excellent terrazza in the back for al fresco dining in the summer.

Highly recommended.
