A perfect stop for lunch while exploring the region's wineries, this trattoria offers cucina casalinga (home cooking) that can be eaten in the dining room or on a lovely outdoor patio. (If you time dinner right, you might get to watch a memorable sunset.) Outstanding primi include maccheroni alla nonna (macaroni with asparagus in a light cream sauce dotted with truffle oil). The misto alla griglia (mixed grilled meats) includes succulent pork. Also notable is the filetto al pepe verde (Chianina beef in a creamy green-peppercorn sauce).
