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.
