Caino Montemerano Ristorante

Caino Montemerano Ristorante

Brief History

It was 1971 when Angela and Carisio, known as Caino, opened a wine shop where they could stuff cold meats, cheeses and some cold preparations.

Since then, much has been done and today is counted among the best in Italy, renowned both at home and abroad.

The seasons with their colors, scents and flavors, their shapes, are the protagonists of Valeria Piccini's cuisine, an immediate cuisine with strong tastes that taste of Maremma. From this magical land and from this enogastronomic experience you can be tempted and that is why the same oil served at the tables coming from the family production can be purchased at the wine shop along with other specialties.

A few kilometers from the thermal baths of Saturnia, Montemerano was a happy oasis in the communal period.

It is difficult to imagine Cain in a place other than Montemerano, a splendid medieval village, on top of a hill in the municipality of Manciano.

The furnishing is elegant, sober, extremely accurate in detail The fireplace, the linen curtains and soft lighting create a comfortable environment. A few tables, only nine, where just over 20 people can be seated, set with precious tablecloths, strictly white dishes, crystal glasses and silver cutlery.

It is in this frame that Valeria expresses itself through its unmistakable recipes.
Starting from tradition, it surpasses it without ever forgetting it. Her dishes reflect her: succulent, with clear and precise flavors, played on contrasts of aromas, textures and temperatures. The result must be a real joy for all the senses, where taste is fundamental and only later comes the aesthetic aspect, which is always taken care of.

However Valeria does not jealously preserve her secrets in the kitchen, but dispenses advice; he is demanding with his staff, but also maternal and understanding . The menu usually changes once a month, depending on the season.
