Returning another year to enjoy a week of lunch and dinner at Walter Redaelli's was a real treat! We book early with Angela to stay at Relais la Leopoldina, a lovely 6 room B&B above the restaurant with a beautiful pool. It is great to be able to walk to our room after a wonderful dinner with wines. We always begin our dinner with a glass of sparkling wine and follow with a bottle of Brunello di Montalcino recommended by Massimo. The service is excellent! Dinner after eight on the patio in summer is surprisingly cool and delightful. On our first night, a crew from England were filming a TV show with couples that make visits to restaurants in Europe. They discuss the restaurant, menu, food preparation, and wines as they select their meal. However, they couldn't tell us the name of the show. It was interesting to observe the filming as we enjoyed our dinner at a table nearby. We shared the Chianina beef, Bistecca alla Fiorentina, served with Tuscan white beans, green beans, and my favorite "potatoes pie". Ask if it is available when you dine there. Don't miss the desserts! During our stay, we were able to try almost all of the varied menu with no disappointments! The porcini mushroom dumplings with truffle sauce and cheese cream is also one of my favorites! If you are anywhere near Bettolle, make a reservation for dinner for a memorable evening of great food and wine!
