LUNCH

Lunch at Villa Lena will be a convivial affair. The perfect intermittence to be enjoyed in-between one of the workshops or simply as a break from lounging by the pool amid the rustic Tuscan landscape, the menu will include smaller plates such as arancini with saffron, prosciutto and scamorza, and verdure dell’orto, a selection of pickled vegetables from the Villa Lena garden. To follow, fresh pastas will include rigatoni with cherry tomato passata and basil, linguine, with clams, garlic and bottarga and pici cacio e pepe.

DINNER

As night draws in, guests gather for a convivial dining experience showcasing the unique charm of Villa Lena. Available a la carte or as a four-course set menu, start with small dishes including mussels with chili, cilantro and Thai basil or fried green tomatoes with aioli, followed by pastas including tagliatelle with white ragout or penne with tomato and burrata. Larger dishes will include slow-cooked lamb shoulder with garden herb salad and roast potatoes and the pesce di giorno, fish of the day with wilted kale and white beans. To finish chocolate tart with Villa Lena olive oil and Maldon salt is the perfect end to a delicious meal.

WINE LIST

The Villa Lena wine list is made up of wines mostly sourced from Tuscany and the surrounding regions, with producers specialising in low intervention wine making. Try something from organic vineyard Do.t.e, from winemaker Filippo Calabresi, who creates ‘down to earth’ wines, with an experimental approach that results in wines that portray a unique interpretation of Tuscany’s terroir, or sample one of Ampeleia’s creations, a wine estate originating from the 1960’s that champions biodiversity and the local tradition of planning multiple grape varieties in each plot.
