Cucina San Francesco
For an elegant dinner that won’t break the bank, head to Cucina San Francesco a sophisticated hilltop restaurant that pulls from an onsite vegetable garden to create fresh interpretations of local dishes. Tucked inside Cappuccini, a resort and spa housed in a restored monastery, the restaurant has exposed beams, traditional furnishings, and a panoramic view of Franciacorta, so you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. The food is equally transportive: The seasonal four-course traditional menu, featuring specialties like veal steak with tuna sauce and local anchovies, mincemeat-stuffed pasta with butter and sage, slow-cooked guinea-fowl (similar to a pheasant, but less gamey) with vegetables and polenta, and almond crumble cake with fior di latte ice cream, costs 47 euros ( approx. $55 USD) per person.
