Da Caino
Via della Chiesa, 4, Montemerano; Tel.: 0564-602817
Da Caino is one of Maremma's most refined and admired restaurants, a distinction that has earned it two Michelin stars. Maurizio Menichetti is a skilled sommelier and his wife, Valeria Piccini, a self-taught chef who cooks everything the restaurant serves. The large menu includes two tasting menus of "creative" recipes or of classic Maremman dishes. Everything is prepared with great attention to detail: many vegetables are homegrown, breads are homemade and Valeria's desserts are exceptional. Worth a detour! Reservations necessary.
