However little pocketed alleyways had restaurants with candlelit tables filled with hungry Italians and tourists alike. I was pretty spent so I found an osteria which serves simpler food and asked if I could get a tuscany sampler to go. I am sure it is not normal to get food to go but the young woman speaking ...
