EXQUISITELY PREPARED TUSCAN FOOD WORTHY
OF BEING PAIRED WITH THE FRUIT FROM
SEVEN CENTURIES OF WINEMAKING
For more than 700 years, the name Frescobaldi has been synonymous with outstanding Italian wine.
With 30 generations dedicated to winemaking, much was at stake when the Frescobaldi family decided to open a eponymous restaurant in the heart of Florence.
Dei Frescobaldi Ristorante and Wine Bar is on a quiet corner of the Piazza della Signoria -- the cradle of the Florentine Republic and home of both the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi, where the greatest Renaissance art in the world is displayed.
Standing on so much history -- both family history from the vineyards and Florentine history in the fabled plaza -- dei Frescabaldi risked collapsing under the weight of great expectations.
Throughout the world, there are great wine bars and great restaurants.
Rarely do the two meet.
Dei Frescobaldi manages to exceed both by the glass and plate, while also serving the best premium olive oil in Italy.
