A truly lovely way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon in Florence. Initial welcome was somewhat disjointed as we were greeted and left standing while 2 staff assisted another table with coats. But service from that point was impeccable. Alessandro, our main server, was particularly...More

Hidden in the back streets of Florence is a fabulous restaurant. We had the tasting menu of 9 courses with wine tasting. If you want to be spoiled, don't mind splashing out then it is worth the visit. Dress up & enjoy the evening.

La Leggenda dei Frati restaurant is located within the museum complex of Villa Bardini in Florence. The 1600s Villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden with agricultural items, ancient olive trees and fruit trees. Here the vegetable garden available to the restaurant, including fountains and waterfalls, a rare example of English style garden, overlooks the city offering an incredible landscape of Florence. In the main porch the elegantly decorated room of the restaurant merges with the cultural side of the museum hosting the works of art of the Galleria Continua of San Gimignano. So the guests will get a complete multi-sensory and cultural experience, emphasizing, together with the excellence of the art, that of the food. The Leggenda dei Frati cooking is innovative, although steeped in the culinary culture of the territory, with particular attention to the research of raw materials and respect for them
