Is there a more atmospheric place on a grey drizzly day than a medieval hilltop town in
? I don’t think
so. Last Sunday I went for lunch in Capalbio, a walled town in the Maremma area
whose history dates back to the year 806 A.D. From the Italy
in the main square, to the clock tower, and verdant views overlooking the fields
below, Capalbio is a charmer. Church of San Nicola
We stopped at Trattoria al Pozzo (Via Vittorio Emanuele II, 17) for a lazy afternoon meal where we enjoyed two Tuscan favorites: porcini mushrooms and wild boar.
|Special of the day: Tagliatelle with pumpkin and porcini mushrooms|
|Nothing says Tuscany like papardelle with wild boar ragu|
|A boozy finish: Mascarpone mousse with amaretti biscuits|
Honest prices, friendly service, handmade pasta and a cozy brick and wood beam atmosphere, really, is there any better way to spend a rainy Sunday?!?
