“the best of today's Toscana cuicine..”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Combine local produce and wild herbs with a creative and skilled Sienese chef who honors the traditions of centuries old recipes, with new twists, beautiful presentations; and you will find yourself at this wonderful boutique hotel, Tenuta di Ricavo, situated in a private hamlet which has been converted into rooms and gardens surrounded by hundreds of acres of forest,streams and rolling hills. In the years following WW2 Tuscany has undergone many culinary changes in order to continue to tempt and impress visitors from worldwide. Many kitchens have lost their way, but not so here,the food is perfection. Try the breaded lamb, don't miss the nettle sauce, and trust any and all of the root veggies...desserts are light and full of surprises, the starters are masterful, don't leave out a course!
