We drove up through the snow on December 22nd for a fantastic lunch. The skiing had not begun so il Casone was not as busy as it gets, but it was still set for about 200! The meal was, as always spectacular. Fantastic antipasto of fresh prosciutto, polenta fritta, ragu and porcini. Followed by varieties of fresh home made pastas. There were 4 of us so we just got a selection of everything. It was of course too much to eat. Main courses of cinghiale (wild boar), maiale and garfagnana sausage were all excellent. Coffee by the big log fire. Be sure to book at weekends as it can get very busy!

A lovely place for dinner after a long hike up Mt. Prata. We visited during mushroom season and the fresh porcini were wonderful. We enjoyed the fried veggies and the beef steak fiorintina. Hard to find but worth the trip.
