The restaurant seems to originate from a completely different century, but in fact was only established in 1999. And guess what? It is family-run!
It was started by Grazia and Carlo, whose traditional know-how is perfectly reflected in their strict organic regime: everything is cooked on wood fires; jams, bread, pasta and desserts are all home-made; the cold cuts are produced from home-grown pigs cross-bred with Cinta Senese. Today the farm and restaurant are run by the couple’s five children (Massimiliano, Cristina, Simone, Aurora and Nicola) who boast a professional kitchen, wine cellar cared for by the house sommelier Ais and an infinity of new ideas that are constantly being developed.
Gli Attortellati is a “zero metres” restaurant. As soon as you step out into the carpark you can see the enormous vegetable garden that is the prime source of a daily supply of ingredients, from vegetables to aromatic herbs. Just beyond are the animal breeding areas and the orchard. All products that can then be found on the country home-laid tables.
Another particularity is the layout of the menu: a sort of Maremma-style all you can eat made up of nine dishes: four starters, two pasta dishes, one main course with side and dessert.
Price: € 30.00 per person, drinks excluded.
