We were fortunate enough to find this amazing B&B when planning our wedding! So many good things to say...first, the food that Carlo cooks was by far the best food we've ever eaten! When we arrived to check into the hotel, Carlo was making fresh pasta and the kitchen smelled amazing!
Carlo and his wife catered our rehearsal and wedding dinner and we could not have dreamed of two better meals. Honestly, we think these were probably the best two meals of our lives. Carlo cooks using produce from La Lodola's own gardens--ripe tomatoes, beautiful squash, sweet basil...the list goes on and on. Because he gets inspiration from what is ripe in the garden the menu changes daily. We loved the fact that we didn't know what was for dinner until we saw what was written up on the chalkboard. The one night we went to town for dinner, we regretted it immediately and ended up coming back to La Lodola for dessert because Carlo is THAT good.
We also had half of our wedding guests stay here, and everyone raved about it! Very charming, peaceful rooms with beautiful views of the countryside, plus a nice pool area to lounge around. The breakfast area is a little stone nave that is shaded by a trellace made of grapevines. Every day that we stayed here, we woke up to a beautifully arranged breakfast the highlights of which included a breakfast cake and fresh fruits (many grown by Carlo).
We loved our time at La Lodola and would return in a heartbeat! Thank you to Carlo, Manuela and Mario...you made this a trip of our lives!
We can't wait to visit La Lodola again when we're next in Tuscany!!!
