traditional local cuisine and a
selection of excellent Tuscan wines
The "La Stanza del Duca" restaurant in Il Borghetto is a private club that aims to introduce our guests to traditional local cuisine and a selection of excellent Tuscan wines.
The “Stanza del Duca” is our pride and joy because it is our meeting place where we can share, during our tasty Tuscan dinners, all our passion for good food and good wine.
Here we cook like in a classic Tuscan home with the dishes that our Mamma Silvana had always prepared for us, drawing on traditional recipes with her special personal touch dictated by the passion of conviviality, wellbeing and healthy eating and by using the ingredients that have always belonged to our land and to our roots.
Two expert cooks help our mother Silvana in the kitchen. They have been helping mum Silvana in the preparation of her delicacies for years, working closely with her they have acquired the secrets of her cooking and for this they are excellent interpreters of her dishes, offering all the taste of our home cooking even in her absence.
Our Tuscan dinners are an homage to the home-style cooking of Mamma Silvana, based on typical Tuscan ingredients: seasonal vegetables, artisan cheeses, fresh eggs and meat from the territory.
We offer a fixed menu that changes every night consisting of a mixed Tuscan appetizer, a pasta dish, a second course of meat and vegetables and finally a delicious dessert.
For all our guests who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet , or have to comply with restrictions due to food allergies, we are also able to serve tasty and scrumptious dishes that meet your needs, since all the traditional Tuscan recipes can easily be reshaped into different versions while keeping all the flavor of the region intact.
But no Tuscan dinner is ever complete unless accompanied by an excellent wine. Our wine list offers the best selection of Tuscan and local wines. We dedicate every winter to visiting the cellars with the aim of finding and offering small and excellent less-known local producers.
However, our extensive and interesting selection of wines does not lack the finest labels, from the Super Tuscan of the coast to the Chianti Classico area, ranging from the Brunello and Nobile to the Crete Senesi and then returning to San Gimignano with its spectacular Vernaccia among other splendid wines selected by Sandra, our twenty-year sommelier, and by Nicola, with his infinite knowledge and passion.
It will be a pleasure to present the wines of our intimate but well-stocked cellar to you and help you select the best wine to pair with the dishes of the day. During our Tuscan dinners we and our guests feel a bit like a big family in which we passionately narrate the story of the territory through wine for an unforgettable gastronomic experience that involves all the senses.
A Slow Dinner experience in which you take the time to be together and enjoy every taste as if it were a journey through this beloved land.
