Company and caring
Spending time in company is essential: relaxed times with good food and a glass of wine. It’s a simple pleasure that’s enjoyed even more when shared with others.
That’s the concept behind the friends and family table, which summarizes the idea of conviviality for Ruffino.
Designed to sit large groups, the long table works well for sharing food and wine experiences with new friends.
Menus and the cellar
Choose dishes from the menu or opt for seasonal delights, based on fresh market produce.
The all-Ruffino wine list allows diners to choose by the glass or a bottle. You can also explore our cellars and select an old vintage or special format. All dishes are served with our extra-virgin olive oil.
The “Le Tre Rane” legend
Legend has it that Le Tre Rane was the name of the inn that Leonardo da Vinci opened with his friend Sandro Botticelli on Florence’s Ponte Vecchio.
The idea proved too modern for the time, meaning that the eatery was short-lived.
Tenute Ruffino named the restaurant “Le Tre Rane” to embrace this legend and concept of cooking, serving innovative Tuscan dishes that encapsulate beauty and goodness, heightening the taste of being together in a setting not unlike a farmer’s home centuries ago.
