Il Santo Bevitore

Top choice tuscan in Oltrarno

Reserve or arrive right on 7.30pm to snag the last table at this ever-popular address, an ode to stylish dining where gastronomes eat by candlelight in a vaulted, whitewashed, bottle-lined interior. The menu is a creative reinvention of seasonal classics: risotto with monkfish, red turnip and fennel; ribollita (bean, vegetable and bread soup) with kale; or chicken liver terrine with brioche and a Vin Santo reduction.
