Dining

A true taste of Tuscany

With the freshest produce in the finest location, dining with us is the perfect way to appreciate the true magic behind Italian cuisine.
Whether you’re sampling local wild boar, savouring our smoked rabbit lasagnetta or sipping Tuscan wine, gastronomes are spoilt for choice with our varied and unique culinary options. From the 15th-century arches of La Loggia to our avant-garde take on beloved dishes, both tradition and modernity inform our gastronomy. It doesn’t hurt that our hotel overlooks Florence’s most coveted view—the panoramic vista is as stunning as any painting hanging in the Uffizi gallery.

La Loggia Restaurant

La Loggia Restaurant

At La Loggia, the menu both respects and reinterprets Tuscan gastronomy. Executive Chef Alessandro Cozzolino' dishes, including Chianina beef fagottino, amberjack ceviche and charcoal bell peppers risotto, feature daring modern twists and unique ingredient combinations. The result? A one-of-a-kind flavour sensation that takes you both back in time and hurtling into the future.

The stunning decor echoes this ethos, boasting a melange of contemporary and renaissance design. Perched high in the Florence hills, our magical setting—which benefits from a gentle breeze—also has its fair share of history. A former monastery and now one of the most scenic restaurants in Florence, we’re proud of the stories that live on here.

Opening times:
Lunch: 13:00 – 14:30, Dinner: 19:00 - 22:00

    Creative Origins

    Chef Alessandro Cozzolino

    My story is a personal project. It is not based on techniques, but rather on emotions.

    Originally from Caserta in southern Italy, Alessandro Cozzolino trained internationally with Michelin-starred chefs. Through each new experience he has relied on two qualities: passion and dedication. Combining his intuition with personal taste and well-honed skills, the result is a careful curation of dishes that wow on every mouthful.

      LEONARDO’S TABLE

      Leonardo da Vinci embodied “unquenchable curiosity and feverishly inventive imagination.” With our own predilection for culinary curiosity, we’ve crafted a special menu dedicated to the polymath. After all, his history is also our history—he tested his flying machine on the hills of Monte Ceceri just above our hotel grounds.

      Inspired by his “Codice Atlantico”, each dish reveals a part of Florence’s culture. The meal will be accompanied by Leonardo himself, who will reveal tales about the Renaissance, Leonardo, and his culinary inventions.
