Thereafter, we made our way to the upstairs dining room where we were all seated at a large table.   Pounds of various types of beef were displayed on a table in front of the grills.  Fresh raw vegetables, Tuscan bread and olive oil for dipping, along with wine and water, were already on our table when we sat down.
