La Chiusa

Via della Madonnina 88, 25 km (15 miles) east of Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore, Montefollonico, Tuscany, 53040, Italy

Dania and Umberto Lucherini bought this old farmhouse in 1974 and turned it into a significant restaurant ($$$$) with emphasis on Tuscan classics. An impeccable staff serves exquisitely prepared food, such as the pappardelle Dania (wide noodles tossed with tomatoes, garlic, and two cheeses). The menu changeswith the seasons, and the well-culled (and expensive) wine list complements the selections. "We had an outrageously good dinner," writes a user of fodors.com. Guest rooms live up to the high standards created in the kitchen, as the terra-cotta floors, crisp fabrics, and immense bathrooms (most with Jacuzzis) further a sense of luxurious well-being.
