    Wild Boar with polenta, and some potatoes

    Il Giglio restaurant is located in Hotel Il Giglio, in the heart of Montalcino. This small restaurant is open to the public, and bookings are recommended as it is very popular. Some of the tables offer fabulous views across the valley, so ask for one when you book and you may get lucky.

    We had a meal here on our first night in Montalcino. The service was charming and the food was delicious. And best of all, we only had to stumbled upstairs to our room when we finished!

    Favorite Dish: The menu was filled with tempting local cuisine. To start, we shared some Gnocchi with nettle & fresh truffle. The pasta just melted in your mouth, though the truffle made it a little bit rich for me to eat too much....Alex was more than happy to help ; )

    Main course for both of us was the Stewed Wild Boar with polenta. This dish was so flavoursome, and again pretty rich, but I managed to eat all of mine up (and mop up the sauce with some bread). A bottle of Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino held its own against the rich food.

    Alex was game for dessert, so ordered the Pear stewed in Brunello, which he accompanied with a recommended glass of dessert wine. The pear looked and tasted excellent.

    It was a really good meal, though it turned out to be quite expensive (93 euro), mainly due to the pricey wine we chose, but it was well worth it!

    He sure wanted attention!

    Friends of mine got engaged here and they are both foodies and winos - so I had to check it out. It was a treat.

    Ps. the cat has nothing to do with the meal - just that he was very vocal!

    Favorite Dish: The Brunello. Ok so it isn't a dish...

    This was a small cafe where we stopped in to have coffee and a pastry for breakfast. They must also cater to the lunch crowd having snacks and gelato, as well.

    Most of the Italian restaurants we ate at, the pasta has been cooked perfectly al dente! This restaurant was no exception. Great food, great wine - Rosso di Montalcino.
