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 Ristorante 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.
