Typical Tuscan dishes

prepared from locally sourced, farm-to-table ingredients, to enjoy in serene and welcoming surroundings.

Come and experience the true taste of Tuscany at the restaurant Le Pietre Vive, nestled in the charming valley of the river Arbia, which Dante tells us ran red with blood in the year 1260 after the famous Battle of Montaperti, whose site is now home to this charming Tuscan farm house. This setting provides not only a peaceful air of timeless tranquillity just a few kilometres from the historical town of Siena but is an authentic culinary paradise, tucked as it is between the famous Chianti region and the great wine producing regions of Montalcino and Montepulciano, whose reds and Brunellos are well represented on a wine list which features some of the very best regional wines, including organically produced and natural wines.

The food showcases a similar philosophy, presenting in traditional dishes of the local Sienese culinary culture the very best local ingredients from great Florentine steaks from the local Chianina cattle and the delicious local Pecorino cheeses and speciality cured meats through the finest, freshest farm produce to local delicacies such as the saffron produced here on the farm which can be enjoyed in savory dishes like the fresh Tortelli with Ricotta and Montaperti saffron or in amazing homemade desserts such as Panna Cotta with Le Pietre Vive saffron.

And everything from the Monte Amiata Chestnut tagliatelle to truffles from the nearby woods is 100% Tuscan.
