I have eaten at the Lamole Restaurant (about 10 km from Greve) twice and consider it to be among my finest dining experiences in Italy. While there are certainly “more-refined” restaurants in Italy, Lamole provides the diner with imaginative Tuscan fare with great flavors. I heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking an authentic culinary experience.
Lamole is not far from the well-known Greve but requires driving up a steep winding road. I prefer lunch rather than navigate these roads at night. Also, you can also reach Lamole by traveling on mostly dirt roads from nearby Panzano and the delightful medieval village of Volpaia.
While I am quite sure the menu changes based on the seasons, I recommend the Tuscan beans and sausage. This is – by far – the best sausage I have ever eaten (might be a bit on the garlicky side for some) with perfectly cooked Tuscan beans. Found below are just a few photos of the memorable dishes we enjoyed.
Lamole is a great way to relax, dine on perfectly prepared local fare and enjoy the best of what Tuscany has to offer.
