Chianti Restaurants, Trattoria, Clubs etc

Needless to say there are hundreds of restaurants, trattoria, cafes, bars and clubs in The Chianti.  And, needless to say, we haven't visited all of them - at least, not yet!

Anyone who travels to Italy - and particularly to Tuscany - will eventually discover the "perfect place" - a cosy bistro, a romantic cafe, or even a gastronomic treasure of a restaurant where the quality of the food and the delights of a unique ambiance will remain in memory forever.

The act of discovery itself is the real pleasure...and in The Chianti an almost inexhaustible one.  Some of our discoveries follow below...more will be added as time permits.
