The city of Florence is rich in history, art, and culture, but also good food.


A good way to discover Florentine culture can be to taste the most authentic dishes of its culinary tradition: the specialties that you can find at Barbara's table are delicate and tasty, but also rustic and refined.


Our Cesarina loves to bring friends and family together in her garden, or around the fireplace, in the colder months. Her menus are always enriched with good Chianti.

Barbara was a fabulous host for my friends and I. Her home was absolutely stunning and so inviting. She graciously greeted us with a champagne toast and prepared a delicious traditional Florence home cooked meal. The ambiance was perfect in her beautiful yard. It made for a perfect night in Florence!
