The word Tuscan is been thrown around a lot;next to Atkins, it's probably the most abused culinary term. But Pepolino has fair claim to actually being a Tuscan restaurant, since the proprietors cut their eyeteeth at Florence's renowned Cibreo, and certain key dishes reflect it. Instead of butter or olive oil you get a spreadable tomato flan flavored with basil, and nothing in town quite matches the perfection of the cheese and spinach ravioli, glossed with butter and walnuts; or tagliata, a sliced steak served with greenery; or inzimino, a dense calamari sludge not for the squeamish.
