Description: The Windmill Restaurant, a place known and appreciated since the forties for its cuisine inspired by the most authentic Tuscan tradition, takes its name from the Windmill of the village, recently restored, where even today, the farm grinds organic grain to get the flour used in the production of pasta, cakes and sweets. In the countryside, in perfect harmony with the environment, the restaurant offers a wide and shaded terrace overlooking a landscape full of charm; one of the hills surrounding Florence. The choice of a soft traditional furnishings, blended with the decorations contrasting the ceilings and the pavement made from disused barrels now centenarian, reflect the sensitivity to the most authentic tradition. In the kitchen they are used raw materials, always fresh and genuine, closely linked to the territory and the change of the seasons; the strict interpretation of Tuscan cuisine are combined with some "pearls" of traditional Italian cuisine. The warm and relaxing atmosphere combined with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff will accompany you to your table, making it really special. Banquets and Conferences The location of the farm, secluded and peaceful, allows it use by alternating between cheerful ceremonies to scholarly congresses. If you think of a very special ceremony that will remain forever in my mind and heart, in the melting atmosphere of the rolling hills of Chianti, we will be happy to arrange an unforgettable event. We will organize everything so that you can relax and fully enjoy your holiday. With your suggestions, we will prepare buffets and banquets for any occasion and requirements (typically Tuscany, game, international, Liguria, and around) and, if you wish, we will be prepared for everything. Try to imagine a carriage eighteenth century along an avenue of cypresses that leads to the church where he will pronounce the fateful yes.

Sergio and Sonia head the wonderful team at Trattoria Mulino a Vento that offers classic Tuscan cuisine in a beautiful picturesque setting overlooking the rolling hills of Tuscany. We enjoyed 4 nights of exceptional dinners ranging from a perfectly cooked Bisteca Fiorentina to regional classics like Cinghiale Rustica over homemade pasta to delicious desserts including a vanilla panacotta with housemade chocolate sauce with olive oil. Not to be missed are the incredible wines produced at Fattoria Lavacchio vineyard including a spectacular chianti reserva as well as an award winning Vin Santo served with classic almost biscotti for dipping. Sergio and Sonia make sure that every guest at Mulino a Vento is well fed and leave with a sense of family and authenticity.

We ate here several times over the course of a week as it was the only restaurant near the agriturismo where we stayed. We had several less than honest experiences with one of the waitresses there--Sonya. Once we ordered a light dinner and explained that we weren't very hungry. She suggested that we might try a particular dish for an appetizer, ok we said, and she brought us two dishes instead of one. It was brushetta, why would we need two orders? Another night we ordered one glass of wine and she billed us for a bottle. When the bill came, we told her we didn't order a bottle. She apologized but refused to give us a credit for the difference between the price of a glass and that of a bottle. Instead she just said we could take the remains of the $60 bottle of wine with us. The food here is pretty good, but we were so turned off by these experiences, that we drove down the mountain, into Sieci for dinner the remaining nights we were there. We have been to Europe and Italy several times before and this is the only time we've ever felt scammed.
