La Bottega

La Dolce Vita in three acts – that’s what awaits you in this restaurant beautifully located on the banks of the Arno river. Start your evening by taking a seat in the cosy wine lounge with its open fire before heading over to the main dining area. Its elegant shades of grey, stone walls in subtle pastels and dark wooden floor make for an inviting, warm atmosphere as Michelin-starred chef Antonello Sardi works his magic in the open kitchen. Championing a farm-to-table concept, he uses seasonal produce from the restaurant’s own farm and combines it with best meat from local butchers and fish fresh from the Mediterranean Sea to create Tuscan classics of the highest culinary level. Don’t miss the signature dish of homemade cappelletti with pigeon, butter and thyme that Sardi is famed for throughout the region and which earned him the Michelin star. Locals flock here at lunchtime just to have a massive plate filled with the delicate pieces of pasta art. After your meal, the outdoor terrace is the place to be. Watch people saunter past while you enjoy a cup of buon caffè – it’s stylish Italian lifestyle at its very best.
