Favorite Dish: <EM><FONT COLOR=BROWN>(Continuing from above)</FONT></EM><BR>The <FONT COLOR=RED><B>Antica Taverna</FONT></B>, rather than a straight restaurant, is more properly a <B><FONT COLOR=BLUE>'bruschetteria'</b></FONT>. So, first of all you gotta get an idea of what a <B><FONT COLOR=BLUE>'bruschetta'</b></FONT> is... :)<BR>
Basically, it consists in <FONT COLOR=BLUE><EM>a large slice of freshly toasted tuscan bread</EM></FONT> sprinkled with genuine <FONT COLOR=BLUE><EM>olive oil</EM></FONT> and covered with the most various range of ingredients, according to your taste: <FONT COLOR=BLUE><EM>cheese, salami, tomato, ham, mozzarella, mushrooms, fresh vegetables</EM></FONT>...The only constant for the genuine bruschetta is that the slice has to be previously <FONT COLOR=BLUE><EM>rubbed with garlic</EM></FONT>.<BR>
This spot is supposed to have a list of <FONT COLOR=RED><B>several dozens of different <EM>bruschette</EM></B></FONT>, so it's just a matter of choice!<BR>
A good selection of tuscan wines are available, bottled as well as in pitcher; personally i tried a 1/2 liter pitcher of <FONT COLOR=BLUE><B>Vernaccia</B></FONT>, a typical local white wine, and it didn't disappointed me.<BR><FONT COLOR=BROWN><EM>(To be continued below)</FONT></EM>
