MY KITCHEN, MY SOUL

After 25 years working in kitchens all over the world, finally I stopped in this little paradise called Chianti, here I have crowned the dream to cook in a small cozy restaurant, in a timeless setting. This restaurant is my idea of hospitality and cuisine. The herbs and the vegetable garden that I take care personally, the finest ingredients purchased from small suppliers, are the base to build my recipes. Last but not least is the great stimulus in research and evolution of my kitchen that give my guests. Le Contrade‘s restaurant is all about that. Bread, pasta, pastry, digestive elixirs and many other small details are handmade by us. It’s our pleasure to meet your request for a special event, a desire, a food philosophy or a food intolerance. Most of ingredients have organic origin, in our menu you can find fish dishes, vegetarian and vegan dishes, classic and imaginative dishes. Our wine list is not huge (strays a bit from Tuscany), It is designed to accompany our dishes.
