As soon as we arrived in Seggiano, we knew Antico Borgo was the place to partake of lunch. The blissful setting in Piazza Umberto guaranteed a relaxing repast.
Within the renovated building, dating back to 1878, there are three apartments offering bed and breakfast accommodation. The Taverna is on the ground floor and the interior is astounding. Carved entirely out of stone on which the town rests, there are several rooms, all softly lit to evoke an intimate atmosphere.
A stairway leads down, presumably to a storage area and there is another room dedicated to the tasting of Seggianese olive oil.
We dined alfresco under the curious gaze of a handsome observer from a first floor balcony.
The menu enticed us with typical Tuscan dishes, spoilt for choice we selected Pici con Ragu and Bistecca Maiale.
I think our onlooker would have liked to share the succulent pork steak.
