RESTAURANTS & BAR
UNA Restaurant: The UNA Restaurant serves Tuscan specialties and dishes from the Mugello area, with freshly made pasta and local ingredients. A well-stocked cellar which satisfies even the most demanding palates and the most important occasions. The restaurant is in the main part of the resort and has an adjoining outdoor terrace with a view of the lake of Cignano and the practice field. Tuscan cuisine makes use of simple and genuine ingredients such as bread, olive oil, vegetables, meat from local farms and home made pasta. The splendor and eccentricity of the Renaissance courts have added to this a variety of more elaborate dishes which also satisfy more demanding palates. Our chef suggests a menu in which ingredients in season are used, with “theme” evenings and a variety of culinary events inspired by a choice of wines or locally found ingredients (wild mushrooms, truffles and chestnuts) as well as food from other regions. The chef suggests a menu of Tuscan specialties (hors d’oeuvres of cold meats and canapés, stuffed pasta from the Mugello, sliced rare beef steak with baby salad and Parmesan cheese).
