When we noticed this grave omission we straddled the bike without delay; Sunday lunch await us!
One hour later we entered Randicondoli.
There are a few places to dine within the city walls, but we settled on Il Granaio on the east side.
The trattoria is spacious, with ample space outside under a sail. We set outside (it is June in Tuscany, after all).

For primo Capa had risotto con funghi porcini. She even went in the kitchen to convey in person her gratitude for this experience.
I had tortellini con panna e prociutto. More average, but absolutely worth the effort.
For secondo She had una insalata mista while I had bistecca di manzo con cinta di lardo. That was very good indeed.
I really like lardo, and with beef it really comes out with all its power.

With water, a quarto wine bianco, and coffe (not "coffee") we paid 50 euro.

To sum up: A slight mechanical inconvenience aside, it was a perfect Sunday.

Thank you for asking!
