Lonely Planet review

Set under the vaulted ceilings of a medieval palazzo, your feast begins with the art on the walls, including the earliest known portraits of Dante and Boccaccio. Then there’s the food – a contemporary take on Tuscan cuisine with a feisty southern Italian kick, such as the sea bass in ginger sauce and buttery salt cod with spinach. Chefs beaver away behind glass, and remnants of Roman Florence lurk in the cellar. Wine – an insatiable passion of charismatic owner Umberto Montan – is yet another draw.
