Cortona (Tuscany)

Il Cacciatore (rest), Via Roma 11/13 (2nd floor), T 0575-530552
Last visit: 2004
The popular radio music is rather a misfit in these old-fashioned pinkish interiors. Good food. Fritters of zucchini flowers, chick pea salad, Vino Nobile.

Mercatale (Tuscany)

Trattoria Mimi (rest), on the through road
Last visit: 1995 (I know, long time no see)
One question only (rosso o bianco?) and one glass that fits both wine and water. Huge platters with different kinds of pasta as starters (‘Mangia, mangia!’), followed by wood grilled chicken and salad. Pudding came as tiramisu. When we asked for grappa the whole family turned the house upside down and proudly presented a bottle of whisky (‘E como di grappa!’).
