Peasant Restaurant Review

: If only all peasants had it so good. Straightforward, traditional cuisine from Tuscany is largely prepared in an old-fashioned brick oven, giving that unmistakable wood smoke-tinged aroma and flavor. We recommend hearty meat dishes like leg of lamb with grilled trevisano and polenta, or grilled squab with roasted vegetables if you want to commune with your Old Country ancestors. Indulge in bread pudding for dessert. The wine list is Italian and selections are available by the glass and bottle. This is a very enjoyable dining experience, the only downside being that it can get very loud during busy times.
