RISTORANTE LA CANTINA DA CAINO IN MONSUMMANO TERME, TUSCANY.

La Cantina Da Caino is one of my mother in law’s favorite restaurant in this part of Tuscany. Naturally over the years it has also become one of our favorite so much that we always look forward to eating here once or twice during our visits back to Italy.

Their indoor is warm and woody with a countryside vibe. Their outdoor is cozy and inviting especially during summer months. We often enjoy dinner al fresco because kids can play around as they wait for their pizza to be served. Food is delicious and their service has always been pleasant. My favorite is their juicy and tender mixed grilled platter. If you are pescatarian, do not hesitate to try their spaghetti with clams. Read more
