Dining at Villa Lena

Indulge in a culinary journey like no other at our farm-to-table restaurant nestled in the Tuscan hills.

Our creative menu offers a contemporary approach to Italian culinary heritage, celebrating seasonal flavors and ingredients picked directly from our organic orto and sourced from local suppliers. Panoramic views, picture-perfect sunsets, and our orange-hued villa create the perfect setting for you to enjoy the company of your friends and family, whether you’re staying with us or just dropping in for the evening to celebrate a special occasion.


Osteria San Michele offers farm-to-table menus starring the seasonal produce harvested from our biodynamic vegetable garden. From organic greens and tomatoes to fragrant truffles to unforgettable olive oil, wine, and honey, much of what you’ll taste at our restaurant comes from Villa Lena’s rich grounds. Anything we don’t make ourselves is sourced from trusted local collaborators. Half-board booking options offer our famous breakfast buffet and delicious, hassle-free dining each night with a set four-course menu — or you can choose to dine a la carte when it suits.


The Two Bars

The bar at Osteria San Michele is the perfect spot to explore our exciting list of low-intervention wines from Tuscany and surrounding regions, as well as our signature Villa Lena cocktails. For a refreshing spritz or aperitivo, make the most of our pool bar, basking in the evening sun with a selection of antipasti.

The Orto

Known as the orto, our fantastic organic vegetable garden spreads over two bountiful hectares of the Villa Lena estate. Farmer Gigi’s annual cycle of produce provides our restaurant with the fresh, sun-drenched fruits, veggies, and herbs that determine our seasonally-led menus. Our orto is run on organic, biodynamic, and closed-loop principles, meaning we recycle all nutrients and organic matter back into the soil they grew in.
