We arrived at Borgo di Cortefreda for two nights stay at the resort. After check-in we were greeted at the pool with wine and an invitation for a private wine tasting. While enjoying a fantastic afternoon in the wine room we discussed a restarunat for our 4oth annivarsary dinner. Our host insisted that dinner that night at Ristorante Cortefrda would be our best choice.
It was an understatement! We arrived at 8:00 PM to find that the "wine room" had been decorated in candles, a special table for 4 ( traveling with friends) Italian music and an atmosphere I could not have planned. We dined on a superb meal of fresh veal, pasta, salad, wines and finished off with homemade desert and after dinner wine.
My wife insists that it was the most romantic and fantastic dinner we ever had. We spent 3 weeks in Italy with a private chef at our villa for a week and nothing compared to dinner and night at Ristorante Cortefreda. We are planning a return in 2014!

We arrived without a reservation for 4 adults and a toddler. They immediately said no problem and set us up with a table in the bar area and the service was very attentive. The food was very good, great value for money and lovely surroundings. We had a lovely last night of our holiday. :-)

My wife and I stayed at this lovely hotel in Tavarnelle. We ate in the restaurant a couple of times whilst here and as with last year really enjoyed the food. The menu is exciting/interesting with local produce sourced and used. Also like others we had a cookery lesson with Luca, thanks Luca it was really educational and enjoyable. You will not be disappointed if you eat here. There is also an extensive wine list, some unusual wines and a lot from small growers.

We have had several meals at the restaurant this year and last and enjoyed them all. Also Max (who looks after the extensive wine cellar) is extremely friendly and helpful. He has a great knowledge of the local wines, and I understand will soon be opening an online ordering service for his national and international clientele. Thanks Max.
