Osteria i Riffaioli

simonetta and the host silvio

Osteria i Riffaioli

The tavern, "i Riffaioli" born from a great passion:
that Silvio the host and his wife Simonetta for the products
and the recipes of the Tuscan tradition.
The passion for a poor cooking learned from the grandmothers,
handed down in family for generations.
A kitchen attentive to local products, with meat and vegetables selected,
with the fish, personally chosen by the host from the local market.
This passion has created a real Tavern, where those who enter
can try cheese, salami and homemade desserts or stop off
to taste quality wine with all the calm that serves...
