We have a small but well-curated wine list featuring local Tuscan wines from both family-run wineries and internationally renowned Tuscan winemakers. Our menus showcase a creative dialogue between the chefs on our international chef-in-residence programme and our head chef Enrico who’s cooking is steeped in the age-old traditions of Tuscany. Enrico’s training in Michelin starred restaurants in Rome and Florence brings a sophisticated edge to his dishes. A farmer at heart, his food celebrates the simplicity of the amazing fresh ingredients that are available in Italy throughout the year. His approach offers a surprising and exciting twist to the culinary heritage of the region and its best known dishes, from Pappa al Pomodoro to Bistecca Fiorentina.

Whether you have chosen a half-board rate option with set menu dining, or drop in one night to enjoy our a la carte menu, you can enjoy mouthwatering specials which change day to day making the most of what’s fresh in the garden during your stay. We have plenty of vegetarian and vegan options available, as well as a yummy kids menu.

BREAKFAST

Breakfast is included with your room rate and served continental style, with a broad range of dishes to suit all tastes and diets. There are mouthwatering specials to pick from including our Tuscan style avocado toast and pancakes served with honey from the estate.

LUNCH

For lunch, our à la carte menu can just as easily be enjoyed in the restaurant as from your sun lounger by the pool or on the terrace. Choose from a selection of fresh and healthy salads, handmade pastas and showstoppers such as tagliata. Like all our menus, lunch is based on the seasonal harvest of the estate and celebrates the wonderful local producers we are privilaged to work with.

Our dinner menu changes daily, drawing on what’s in season and what we have collected from our gardens that very morning. Enjoy the hassle-free nature of half-board dining or select whatever takes your fancy from the a la carte menu which features a wide range of popular dishes celebrating seasonal local produce and the culinary traditions of the region, with a contemporary twist to suit all ages, tastes and dietary requirements. Tuesday nights are Pizza Night and not to be missed – our in-house pizzaiolo serves up the tasty classics as well as wild and wonderful combinations using whatever’s fresh from the gardens that day.
