Philosophy


Our restaurant philosophy can be expressed in a few simple principles. The search for quality ingredients, for example, with a predilection for local producers, especially those who tirelessly promote and protect precious culinary traditions. Next, we offer genuine, authentic flavors: this is why a few years ago we started growing ourselves the fruit and vegetables needed for our guests, in our large vegetable garden along the banks of the Arno. A farm to table restaurant, yet open to the world with curious fusions of flavor. Our kitchen honors the Tuscan traditions and the dishes of our culture while exploring new flavors and inspirations, always faithful to the seasons and territory. Our menu changes monthly based on our garden’s seasonal bounty. Our offerings always include some flavors of Medicean origin, such as Duck with Orange or other specialties inspired by the court of Caterina de 'Medici, in the 16th century. And, don’t forget that our dishes are accompanied by our Extra Virgin Olive Oil and our wines, perfect pairings to enhance the flavors of our table.





The products of our land


Our products are genuine and territorial. We try to interpret the tradition without distorting it, so that it is a profound expression of a territory rich in history and agricultural vocation. Among the products we are most proud of is our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced from local cultivars such as Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino, from cold extraction. Tuscan with that spicy note that characterizes it, it is the perfect ally for many of our dishes. Next to the oil could not miss the wine: in our paper it is possible to find the wines of our Estate, produced in the vineyards surrounding the Villa. But also the references of producer friends, especially from Tuscany, but not only.
