Dining!


Eat at our  table means to  enjoy a natural  cuisine, according to the natural balance between earth and the season.

 

Eating at our table means tasting a cuisine that respects our balance and that of our land, rediscovering the simple beauty of our traditions, a world where there was no excess and hurry, but tasting and feeling, savor the precious harvest that the season gave: vegetables, legumes, cereals and a balanced use of meat, remembering that for our grandparents it was a precious concession of the day of celebration!

All this to give you colors, aromas and flavors, passion and simplicity, the joy of meeting in the evening around our table to share dinner and to tell each other.

 

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 Tuscany vegetable and legumes soups, homemade pasta with hand-rolled pastry made into tagliatelle, pici, ravioli or lasagna, meat cooked in the old wood oven or in the garden barbecue seasoned with aromatic herbs from the surrounding countryside, home made cakes and desserts.

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