La Grotta hosts you in an authentic and charming sixteenth century building, directly opposite the Church of San Biagio, one of the best examples of Tuscan Renaissance architecture.
La Grotta strives to offer a perfect balance between traditional Tuscan cuisine and modern gastronomy - its aim is to blend the authenticity of the region with innovation while, at the same time, respecting the centuries-old traditions.
The menu is focused on local recipes but broadens them to create new combinations to tempt your palate.


The dishes at La Grotta take you on a journey which explores the ingredients, traditions and seasons of the area. The result is a magical blend which constantly surprises our diners. This is the art of eating well.
La Grotta's chef focuses on the quality of the ingredients, rather than on the complexity of the dishes. The wine list offers a vast range of locally-produced bottles alongside a wide choice of international labels, all of which will assist you on your gastronomic journey.
