Casual dinner in Chuisi?

katesalter Apr 30, 2010 11:53 AM

We are planning a wedding at a villa in Chuisi, but we need an off-site restaurant for a causual dinner a few nights prior to the wedding. We would like a place that can handle about 30 people. No more than 20 euro with a glass of wine.

Thank you,

    have you asked the folks renting you the villa?
    20 euros sounds (including or excluding the wine?) doesnt sound very rich for Italy these days

      Really? The Solita Zuppa seems to be doable for 20 euro without wine?

      Dinner at the villa is 30 euro a night with wine, so we are hoping for a more casual option for one dinner a few days prior to the wedding...

        On our recent trip, it seemed to me that our very cheapest meals (m talking naples and rome, not Chiusi) for two were around 40-42 E. That likely would have been with shared dishes or say a pizza, a pasta dish and a veg or two primi and a shared second course, and and with a carafe of house wine. and a bottle of water.

        Im not saying its not doable only that it is on the inexpensive side. I agree that the online menu of Osteria Solita Zuppe seems to work with your price range if you skip dessert http://www.lasolitazuppa.it/index.php...

        Best wishes and hope that you get concrete good suggestions!

          I have seen more than one review of La Solita Zuppa that said that they are extremely rude and may even refuse to serve you if you do not go the whole three-courses route.

          Your best bet is to call the place and ask if they can do it.
