What follows is a sample of  a seasonal menu. Our kitchen is inspired by our local ingredients and the seasons.  Dishes on our menu change weekly, and sometimes daily.

In addition to the listed menu, there are always special dishes on offer.  Our recipes are in the tradition of cucina casareccia- or Italian "farmhouse" cooking -  and have been collected over years of living and traveling in many regions of Italy.  We offer the traditional dishes we have been taught in tiny restaurant and home kitchens.

Pizza can be one of the most elegant one-plate meals.  Tuscan pizza features a very thin crust made from flour, yeast, and salt.  We are proud to serve our pizza as it was taught to us at the Osteria  del Circolo Ricreativo in Ponte agli Stolli, Chianti.


        the osteria pane e salute gardens



Several years ago, we formally developed our own restaurant gardens at our property in the country.  While we are still working with our local farm partners, we have taken this opportunity to grow specific Italian varieties of lettuces, vegetables, and herbs for our menu.  We have also built a winter garden as well so that we may offer our own fresh greens and root vegetables through the winter season.
