Do not miss the pici, a kind of handmade spaghetti, served with a meat sauce, which once were prepared by farmers who could not afford eating meat very often.

Do not forget cantuccini, which are almond biscuits and crogetti, typical Carnival sweets.

With the pici we recommend you to taste a good red wine, Rosso di Montepulciano DOC, that goes well with the starters too.
