In the splendid garden of Villa Bardini, rich in olive groves, ancient orchards, fountains and waterfalls, you can also find the restaurant La Leggenda Dei Frati.
It is located inside the main portico, in what used to be the stables of the ancient residence and where the art collector Stefano Bardini lived in the last century.
From the Villa’s terrace you can embrace the city with a single gaze, the view strays towards the Arno river running between the so close roofs of the centre of Florence before you lay your eyes on the architectural perfection of Ponte Vecchio.
In the evening, when in the warmer months you can dine on the terrace, it almost seens you can touch the Dome and the Vasari Corridor of the Uffizi Gallery.

The beauty of Villa Bardini combines perfectly with the cuisine of La Leggenda Dei Frati; an innovative, simple and ethical cuisine which pays attention to the choice of ingredients while at the same time being steeped in the gastronomic culture of Tuscany.
A multisensorial and cultural experience……simply complete. Welcome to Florence!!!
The experience begins at Sant’Ambrogio open-air market with the purchase of carefully selected ingredients by the Chef, then continues in the restaurant kitchen with the study and preparation of the menu which will allow you to wheedle out the secrets of the traditional and innovative Tuscan haute cuisine.
