La Leggenda dei Frati (Fine Dining)

La Leggenda dei Frati (The Legend of the Friars) was born originally in the abbey of Abbadia Isola in Siena. According to the legend one night in July three friars collected the best shoots from their garden and ate and drank enough to start singing and dancing without break. Even today, in the ancient convent, on 11 July it is possible to hear the echoes of the friars intoxicated by the fruits of their land.

Abbadia Isola was for the managers of the restaurant,  Filippo Saporito and Ombretta Giovannini, a center of research and experimentation on Tuscan gastronomy. Today La Leggenda dei Frati is located in the garden of Villa Bardini in the old stables of the home of the art collector Stefano Bardini, today’s museum is linked to the restaurant from whose terrace you can embrace the city in one glance.
