Tuscan cuisine is famous for traditional recipes such as "crostini di fegatini" (chicken-liver canapés), "affettati misti" (mixed cold cuts platters), delicious first courses such as "pappa al pomodoro" (a hearty tomato-bread soup), "ribollita" (the iconic "reboiled" soup), and the most widely known classic: "bistecca alla Fiorentina" (Florentine-style steak).
As Tuscany's capital, Florence truly embodies the richness of its gourmet food and wine heritage, which is also expressed through prized red wines such as Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino
At our restaurant Capriccio you can taste some of the Tuscan specialities revisited in a creative style and great desserts to finish your meal; everything served away from hustle and bustle tourist's spots. A 3 courses meal cost €38 per person
