The tradition of Tuscan cuisine complemented by a fine selection of wines
L’Antica Trattoria is located in Piazza Arnolfo di Cambio, in the very heart of Colle di Val d'Elsa, between Siena and Florence. It is a magical place, where flavours and scents evoke an authentic Tuscan character, further enhanced by the cuisine and the vast selection of accompanying wines.
While the cuisine offered by the Paradisi family is indeed linked to the most ancient Tuscan tradition, it is revisited with a touch of creativity and innovation. This, and the seasonal and fresh catch fish dishes, make everything even more appealing. The "ribollita" bean and vegetable soup, tripe and beef tagliata thus unveil ancient and bucolic emotions, and the braised rabbit pappardelle bring to mind a calling for the wild, the emblem of a Val d'Elsa that revolves around an untamed domestic environment that smells of crostini, Cinta Senese cured meats, and bacon.
As for the wine cellar, one immediately senses that oenological wisdom has been constantly put to use through all the bottles recommended, uncorked and savoured over the years.
All this is surrounded by a special atmosphere, where the guest becomes involved in a friendly culinary complicity.
