Yesterday evening I had the pleeasure to visit this marvelous place for dinner. Rita made the most wonderful dishes out of natural Tuscan raw materials. We had the fish meny and enjoyed every part of it along with a young Chianti and some Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Dario was very service minded and made our visit one to remember for long. He explained the menu well made a perfect atmosphere in this beautiful restaurant. If you are close to Montemagno, I recommend calling the restaurant to make a reservation, which should be done at least one day in advance.

A cosy and romantic place to relax and taste fine macrobiotic food made with the best Italian ingredients according to the time of the year. Just picked from the garden or arrived from an organic farmer nearby.
Home made naturally leavened focaccia, chickpeas' pâté, creamy vegetable soup, pumpkin and porcini risotto, tasty and crunchy mix of grains, vegetables and legumes and at the end a delicious autumn fruit crumble ... and do not forget the organic tuscan red wine of Sorelle Palazzi, Terricciola
As far as there are only very few places we felt to be a special guest of Dario and Rita where both our bodies and souls were regenerated.
Thank you again! I'll be back for the cooking classes in the next weeks.

It is not often, of ever, that I can dine with one person cooking just for me and one attending to only my well being and serving the food. The setting, in the newly restored house in the midst of the Medieval village of Montemagno, is a rare one.
You need to reserve in advance (no walk in), and you must select either a vegan or a fish/seafood menu; you want meat you need to dine somewhere else.
The cook (Rita) really knows her craft. Both menus are worth considering (I did return to try the other one!). Dario both serves the food, and excels in explaining what he serves (and why). Also English if needed, which is not at all to be taken for granted in rural Tuscany.
