One of our favorite restaurants is in the tiny hamlet of Montichiello – La Porta has fabulous food in a cozy atmosphere. We
liked it so much we went back for lunch and dinner on the same day this last visit (beware, the shortcut from La Foce – an unpaved road with no lights – is a not a good idea during a dark night – take the paved road to avoid marital stress).
One unusual feature about La Foce is it is open all year round! Winter is a quiet time of year in this part of Tuscany, but the upside is fewer tourists, more local ambiance, and each house at La Foce has an open fireplace to keep you warm. For more information about La Foce for families read the review on Ciao Bambino.
