Italian Food Menus
Antipasti - Italian Starters

The Italian Restaurant Menus Collection
from Maremma, Italy

This "Antipasti" - Italian Starters - menu is the first in a series of Italian food menus from Maremma in Italy: undiscovered rural Tuscany whose thick woodlands sweep all the way down to the turquoise and emerald green sea. A special land, home to simple, but wonderful seasonal food.

 

In each of these pages you will find the Italian menus grouped together according to the type of dish during the meal - primi piatti, secondi piatti, contorni etc - or restaurant house menu - "Menu della Casa", or the tasting menu of many Italian dishes - the "Menu Degustazione".

This first antipasti menu is from the Palmieri Ristorante Pizzeria Lanternina 2 in Pratoranieri, Follonica.
