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.

"Benvenuti a casa nostra !"

We were very welcomed by the staff. The food and wine pairing was more the perfect. Usage of ingredients to gourmet was fantastic. Moreover, plating itself was art.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here. It began with a friendly greeting when we arrived. As we settled at our table the chef came to welcome us personally - a lovely touch. Our meal was everything its Michelin star promised. The food was creative without being too clever and the flavours worked wonderfully well. The staff were solicitous and made us feel like very special guests. A wonderful treat at the end of the meal - an elevator ride to the top of the building for a breathtaking view over Florence. We will be back.

Gli accostamenti aspirano a essere originali, ma spesso a scapito del risultato finale. Pensando a Viva (Milano) o Agli amici (Udine), c'è ancora parecchia strada da fare per trovare il giusto accordo tra innovazione e piacevolezza degli accostamenti, che non deve mai essere dimenticata. Il servizio e il panorama sono impeccabili. Il bagno andrebbe rifatto e separato tra uomini e donne. Sconsiglierei l'uso dell'aceto da supermercato: quello vero di Modena viaggia decisamente su un altro pianeta.

We’ve had 7 course menu. Chef was very nice, the team too. Pre-dessert would like to be changed for some other food, not sweet...

Absolutely perfect, down to the detail - a wonderful, unforgettable night. The service was impeccable, anticipating our every need and offering excellent advice. The dishes (we had the 7-course tasting menu) were imaginative, delicious, filling and perfectly timed. We were then taken to a nice surprise at the end of the evening - truly going the extra mile to make the experience special - can't miss it! We were sent home with delicious petit-fours which had to wait till the following day as we were completely (and happily) full. We've been to a couple of Michelin star restaurants in Florence and this one is by far our favorite - if you're looking for a special meal this is the place to go.

Après avoir visité le site internet, on a qu'une seule envie - de s'y rendre pour déguster un excellent repas dans un cadre magnifique. Or la réalité est plus que décevante ! On vous installe sur une terrasse qui a tout pour plaire mais très rapidement on est dérangé par une musique style LOUNGE-BAR très forte et complètement déplacée pour un restaurant censé "gastronomique". Quand on fait la remarque, on nous répond: " On est désolé que vous n'aimez pas notre musique." Deuxième surprise sont les moustiques qui vous dévorent littéralement. Aucune prévention n'est pas mise en place. Après plusieurs remarques on vous apporte un brin de citronnelle. La plus grande déception reste le repas luis même. Nous avons pris un menu dégustation de 7 plats or aucun n'était mangeable !!!! Les plats étaient déséquilibrés, trop salés et/ou sucrés sans intérêt . Je me demande comment est possible de rater sept plats sur sept. Le service non plus n'est pas à la hauteur, nous devons nous servir nous même du vin et de l'eau. A EVITER !!!

It was slightly disaapointing that since one of didn’t eat meat - the restaurant has “forced” the other party not to eat meat as well. For me it was slightly unheard of that when 2 persons order a tasting menu - they must adhere to each other’s eating restrictions. A bit dissapointing.
