About LA LEGGENDA DEI FRATI

Benvenuti alla “LEGGENDA DEI FRATI”



La Leggenda narra che ad Abbadia Isola, in provincia di Siena in Toscana, una lontana notte di luglio, tre frati raccolsero i migliori germogli del loro orto ed i migliori frutti delle loro vigne e prepararono nella grande cucina un pranzo fatto con i migliori tesori della loro terra, e ne mangiarono e ne bevvero cosi tanto che iniziarono a cantare e ballare senza sosta fino a notte fonda. Gli altri fratelli, non riuscendo né a dormire né a fermarli, decisero di chiuderli nella stanza più alta della torre dell’Abbazia, ma i tre non si fermarono mai e andarono avanti a ballare e cantare per giorni e notti intere. Ancora oggi, nell’antico convento, il giorno 11 luglio, come allora, è possibile sentire gli echi schiamazzanti dei tre frati fantasma ancora inebriati dai frutti della loro terra: erbe, olio, pane e Vino. Il Ristorante “ La leggenda dei Frati “ dedica il suo nome a questo racconto. Originariamente questo Ristorante nasce all’interno della vecchia abbazia di Abbadia Isola a Siena,luogo che è stato per me e mia moglie, conosciuta sui banchi della scuola alberghiera, un primo centro di ricerca che ha permesso di raccogliere e sperimentare il vasto ricettario del territorio, diventando in breve tempo laboratorio culinario e di sperimentazione della nuova gastronomia toscana. Oggi la “nuova” Leggenda dei Frati si trova nel giardino di Villa Bardini, in quella che era la scuderia dell’antica dimora, abitata nel secolo scorso dal collezionista d’arte Stefano Bardini dalla cui terrazza poteva abbracciare la Città con un unico sguardo:Benvenuti a Firenze, Benvenuti a casa nostra ! Filippo Saporito e Ombretta Giovannini.

We had a leisurely lunch on a beautiful spring day, and everything about the experience was superb, not least the visit from the chef to our table and the superb service from the attentive staff. We chose to order à la carte, instead of the dégustation for the table, and were surprised to receive two amuse-bouche “courses,” as well as several samplings of sweet and savory desserts.

I was expecting better quality food. So basically part of the appetizer was falafel! Badly made falafel and I’m originally from the Middle East. Then we got this cream of padano cream that was so underseasoned. Tasted like nothing. Pasta with rabbit was ok but normal trattoria quality. Lamb was good. Then a weird palette cleanser had disgusting shape and texture like uncooked eggs. Dessert was basically a simple biscuit with fresh Berries and mediocre sorbet. Totally underwhelmed.

L’ambiente è molto impersonale, con un arredamento che non si lega con il bellissimo palazzo con vista sulla città. I piatti seppur buoni non ci hanno emozionato, perlomeno non giustificano il prezzo e la stella michlein

Ristorante meraviglioso sotto tutto i punti di vista: cibo incredibile, ben equilibrato e dal sapore ricercato (consiglio fortemente il risotto con zucca, pecorino, aringa e cicoria), il personale è pronto a soddisfare ogni bisogno del cliente, estremamente educato, gentile e servizievole. Se si vuole passare una serata romantica lasciandosi coccolare dallo chef e i suoi collaboratori, consiglierei senza ombra di dubbio di trascorrere una serata in questo magnifico ristorante.

Grazie Mille for the best lunch I have had in Europe, ever. The service was brilliant, the food was such a wonderful celebration of tuscany and the season. And the restaurant is beautiful. A mix of old world and modern clean lines. Even the pottery plates/bowls were perfectly chosen. I will recommend to anyone. Molto molto bene. Xoxo

We had a truly outstanding meal. The chicken liver parfait - one of my favorite dishes - was the best I've had. The service was attentive and friendly. The wines were delicious. An uplifting experience! Thank you.
