Dinner at Solociccia in Panzano in Chianti…

The front of 'Solociccia' in Panzano in Chianti

After a day spent at Castello Monsanto with Laura Bianchi, I decided I would venture to Panzano (about 10km from Radda) and see Dario Cecchini.

I have heard so many things about Dario Cecchini the so-called ‘best butcher in the world’ that I could not visit Chianti and not have dinner at his restaurant. To call it an experience would be an understatement: communal tables, no ordering and the theatre of eating dishes such as ‘Ramerino in culo’ made it well worth the visit.

Would I go back? Probably not as I thought the actual meat was probably not any better than many fantastic restaurants you find in Chianti. However, it is like coming to Radda and not drinking Chianti. The experience in eating Dario’s food and talking to the man that has made Bistecca so famous was well worth the drive.
