Nugolo in Sant'Ambrogio is like a farmer’s market inside a greenhouse—the space overflows with plant life, sparkly lights, and glass jars of homemade tomato sauce and chutneys. The menu ventures off from the Tuscan norm, with dishes like their bouquet-inspired celery root carpaccio over a bed of perfectly spiced red onion creme and served with pomegranate and crunchy hazelnuts. Don’t miss their satisfying menu staple, the chitarra Nugolo pasta starter made with a fragrant and silky tomato pomorola sauce sourced from the owner’s garden and sprinkled with salty ricotta. And the decadent tarte tatin paired with sour cream will have you breaking any promise you’ve ever made to skip dessert. Another bonus is a well-curated wine list made up of hard-to-find small Italian producers.
