La Leggenda dei Frati was originally born in the Abbey of Abbadia Isola in Siena and it takes its name from the legend linked to this place: one night in July, three friars gathered the best sprouts from their garden and ate and drank so much that they started singing and dancing non-stop. Even today, in the ancient convent, on July 11, you can still hear the echoes of the friars inebriated by the fruits of their land. Abbadia Isola was for us a center of research and experimentation about the Tuscan gastronomy, today La Leggenda dei Frati is located in the garden of Villa Bardini in the old stables of the residence of art collector Stefano Bardini, today a museum linked to the restaurant from whose terrace we embrace the city in a single glance. Welcome to Florence, welcome to our home!
