Under the vaulted ceilings strewn with posters from all over the world, the staff at Buca Lapi prepare and serve dishes with finesse. While the restaurant offers international fare, their focus is on classic Tuscan dishes, such as cannelloni gratinati (pasta canapés stuffed with ricotta and spinach), and ribollita vegetable soup. There is also the famous bistecca alla fiorentina, and a bistecca chianina, both gigantic cuts of meat. If you feel adventurous, try the filetto di cinghiale (wild boar with rosemary olive oil), or coniglio diossato ripieno (stuffed rabbit). But don't forget to leave room for dessert like the decadent latte Portuguese, or a chocolate torte. And what Italian meal is complete without great wine? Choose from an extensive selection of over 80 Tuscan and chianti wines. Reservations are required.
