I had to ask, macchia is local dialect for cinghiale.  Maybe since the hunting society is known as ‘The Friends of the Macchia’  the dishes called ‘Macchia’ are wild boar actually killed by the members of the society and the other cinghiale is commercially produced?  Not sure.  Anyway, we all had steak.  First an antipasta platter to start.

The large spicy tomato one was the best.  The darker piece of meat is cinghiale prosciutto.

This cute dog that the couple from Florence who joined us at our table brought along.  He was very well behaved and was rewarded with our left over steak bones.
