The pici are a southern Tuscan pasta dish, greatly popular and appreciated. The picio is one piece of pasta, pici is the plural in Italian language. But surely here in Seggiano you’ll be provided with dishes full of many pieces of pici! And it will be possible to taste them with the hyper classic aglione, a sort of local garlic and tomato; or with a rich meat sauce, a ragù; with the briciole, crumbs of bread. It’s impossible to mistake the choice, as all these sauces are equally delightful!

Grilled meat is on the menu as second course, with other traditional recipes as tripe and beans in tomato sauce.
