Dining on the terrace in the greenery in Tuscany at Villa le Barone

When you wish for a romantic Tuscan dinner, when you wish to be surrounded by cicadas’ and birds ‘songs, when the weather is warm or mild, where best to dine than on a terrace in the Tuscan countryside? This is what Villa le Barone offers you …

Daylight is fading, you have just returned from a trip in Chianti or a visit in Siena or Florence. You have enjoyed a “prosecco” on one of Villa le Barone’s gardens and now you move to the dining terrace, surrounded by hydrangeas, by a box hedge over which you see the Chianti hills and by other Mediterranean plants. In springtime you will smell the nearby lime tree. Giulia or Elena take you to your table, a candle is lit for a romantic dinner that you will leisurely enjoy …. On the menu, you choose your “primo”: homemade gnocchis or raviolis, ribollita, crespelle… as well as your “secondo”: tagliata, bistecca fiorentina, chicken with lemon… and while your order is prepared for you, you go to the appetizing “antipasti table” where you will find various salads, crostini’s, bruschetta… only fresh and healthy ingredients … but your job is not finished, you also have to choose in the great wine list a wonderful Chianti Classico or a Chianti Riserva to accompany your typical Tuscan dinner. Of course there is also a choice of Italian cheeses, in particular the pecorino and a choice of deserts: Sherbets, also homemade, with season fruits!
