We happened to find ourselves next door doing laundry and sat down a for a wait. The charming young couple fed us and explained all the delicious locally produced cheeses, meats, beers and wines.

Coming back tomorrow morning for panini to fuel us on our explorations!

Not really a restaurant, a tiny grocery store really, but a terrific place to pick up picnic food. The owner carefully sources what he sells and will happily tell you about the place 40 miles away where he buys his prosciutto. He also makes his own salsas that are great accompaniments to bread and cheese. He stocks four of five local wines that are priced around 10 euros a bottle. Nice place.

After 10 days of indulging on heavy meat & pasta dishes, my husband and I fancied a light dinner for a change. We read the good reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try and it was an absolutely right decision. It is outside the wall, away from the central, kind of facing the garden. We had salads and brechette, they were simple but delicious, all fresh made to order. We also had two glasses of white wine and they were fantastic. The owener is so nice and friendly, we really enjoyed the little chat with him. He has good knowledge of his goods and the local products . He brought us some gorgeous cheese to sample and they were companied with two types of jams, garlic and rosemary, sounds unusual but it was just amazing, perfect. We had absolutely great night there, we were so relaxed and the foods was lovely. The bill came in the end and it was so cheap, unbelievable. I highly recommend this place.

My mother and I recently spent a night in San Quirico as part of our camino along the via Francigena. After a long day of walking we happened to stumble across La Bottega di Porta Nuova. We were extremely warmly welcomed by the shop's owner Fabrizio. We stayed for a drink - my mother had an organic ('bio' in Italian) apple juice which she said was delicious and I enjoyed an organic red wine recommended by Fabrizio. Fabrizio brought out a delicious selection of local cheeses (with the most delicious fig and hazelnut jam!) and hams for us to try. Fabrizio's friendly personality and passion for organic, locally produced Italian food was infectious. Can't recommend a visit more highly. We wish Fabrizio every success with his venture. It deserves to succeed!
