Eating & Drinking

  • The charming Val d’Orcia villages abound in family-run inns and bars in atmospheric settings. The best inns offer Slow Food ingredients, such as prosciutto di cinta senese (cured meat made from an acorn-snuffling, wild-boar-like breed of Sienese pig). Salami are on the menu everywhere, maybe flavoured with wild fennel. This is Sienese territory so expect the stubby pasta known as pici, in every kind of sauce, including game. In autumn, mushroom and chestnut dishes are on the menu, a reminder that the fertile slopes of Monte Amiata are not far away. As for dessert, look out for ricciarelli, Sienese biscuits, tasty, lozenge-shaped almond and candied orange-peel biscuits, a variant on macaroons. These may be served with Vin Santo, Tuscany’s celebrated dessert wine.

  • La Taverna del Pian delle Mura

    This friendly, mid-priced inn on the slopes of Monte Amiata serves starters (antipasti) of pecorino cheese and gamey prosciutto di cinta senese (Sienese salami), pici all’aglione (stubby spaghetti with garlic and oil), plus local lamb and chicken with roasted vegetables from the owners’ garden.
