La Torre di Gargonza Restaurant – Monte San Savino
La Torre di Gargonza is a restaurant in Monte San Savino and it is still family owned and managed by Neri Guicciardini and Susi Brogi our chef.
The La Torre di Gargonza Restaurant is the crown jewel of Castello di Gargonza, open for guests of our bed and breakfast, Castello’s vacation apartments as well as external clients. The restaurant is located just outside the Gargonza city walls, near the swimming pool, where one can enjoy the views of Gargonza’s woods and Val di Chiana. The setting is truly stunning: an internal dining hall that accommodates 50/65 persons within an antique tractor shed, while the outdoor terrace accommodates up to 170 guests and boasts breathtaking views.
The cuisine consists of authentic traditional Tuscan dishes made with simple, genuine ingredients chosen personally by chef Susi Brogi among those available fresh each season. The pasta is home made, the Chianina meat is cooked over embers, the wines (over 60 labels) are from the region, including Chianti Classico, Colli Senesi, Montalcino, Montepulciano and are stored within the wine cellar. Since 2008, the restaurant is certified from the Italian Gluten Free Association. We prepare gluten free bread and schiacciata and serve gluten free pasta for our gluten free friends.
