Description
A must visit, former owners and founders return to Rye. Florentine chef Franco and Jen take you straight back to a day in Tuscany. Whether you want a moment to relax or stay and linger, they welcome you to their home and kitchen. Recipes past down generations from the pages of an old family book to savour and enjoy. Wine is as important as food here and there is an extensive list of Tuscan region wines. Lion Street is tucked away leading to St Mary's Church in the heart of Rye.
