Dining!


Eat at our  table means to  enjoy a natural  cuisine, according to the natural balance between earth, season and our body.
The fruits of our garden grow and develop according to the slow rhythm of nature, from a land worked with passion and following permaculture principles.

 

You will find the scents of our land and our traditions, the scent of an old kitchen where there wasn't speed and haste but the time to taste and  feel, waiting to savor the valuable crop that the season offered: vegetables, grains, legumes along with a balanced use of the meat, reminding us that for our grandparents was a valuable grant of the day of celebration!

All this is our way to give you colors, scents and flavors, passion and simplicity, silence, thoughts, and why not, to feel that we are nature and natural  is the way to eat!

For you to enjoy a wide variety of Tuscan cuisine, every evening you can taste different recipes prepared mainly using organic products from the farm or selected from local producers.

Among other things on our table you will find vegetable and bean soups, grains served in imaginative and colorful ways, homemade pasta with hand-rolled pastry made into tagliatelle, pici, ravioli or lasagna, pizzas and bread becoming prominent in rich and fancy bruschetta dishes, meat cooked in the old wood oven, seasoned with aromatic herbs from the surrounding countryside.

The evening meal can be served inside, before the fireplace or, during hot summer nights , outside under the wide porch.

 

Menù is composed of an appetizer, to welcome you to our table! After we have one first course, a main course with vegetable side dish and dessert.

The price of the dinner is € 23. Water, 1/4 wine and coffee (or our wild fennel tea) are included.
