Built in 1929, the Lovett Barn's stalls no longer house rows of dairy cows. What remains of the old farm structure's interior forms booths and seating arrangements in the appropriately named La Stalla, the Italian eatery that now inhabits the space. Rather than wipe out all vestiges of the edifice's origins, the owners celebrate its rustic charm by decorating it with period paintings and artifacts from its previous incarnation, as well as by occasionally mooing at their visitors.
Of course, the chefs also serve delicious Italian food to boot, focusing on a family-style approach that's reminiscent of the culinary philosophy prevalent in the Tuscan countryside. They decorate dozens of kinds of pasta in light sauces, bread and pan-fry chicken and veal, and sauté giant shrimp with butter and garlic. They also serve special meals in their intimate wine room, including chef-chosen courses that, in good Italian tradition, pair perfectly with celebratory bottles of wine.
