Hi, In 10 days we will be driving down from the South of France, stopping in Cinque Terre for 2 days (staying in Vernazza) and then driving down to a small town called Rigomagno, which we will use as our base for a week. Rigomagno is in the middle of Siena, Arezzo, and Montepulciano. We will visit all 3 (maybe Montalcino instead of Montepulciano) as well as Pienza, maybe Orvieto, and who knows where else. I'd love to find some great restaurants for lunches and some farmers markets so we can cook some fabulous dinners.
In Siena, we were looking at the classic Le Logge or L'Osteria. Montalcino has Re Di Macchia or Il Leccio. rossellino in Pienza also sounds good. Any recommendations are welcome to replace these. We're not looking for fine dining, but rather just amazing cuisine. Love family run places, homemade pastas, etc.
What about farmer's markets? Where are the best ones? When are they?
