  • Villa Bordoni Restaurant, [5]. Part of the hotel by the same name, the Villa Bordoni restaurant is located on a beautiful hill above the town of Greve in Chianti, overlooking the Greve valley and the terraced olive groves and vineyards surrounding it. In the Summer, it is possible to dine outdoors in the villa's Italian garden, enjoying the surrounding scenery and its romantic sunsets.

The restaurant itself is made up of two intimate rooms which open onto the Italian garden, and in cooler months the ancient fireplace is lit to make a crackling fire, thus adding to the romantic ambiance. Food is strictly Italian with a strong emphasis on the quality of the ingredients. The wine cellar, which is carved directly out of the bedrock upon which the Villa stands, offers approximately 250 wine labels. Many hard-to-find vintages and Tuscan wine icons such as Querciabella, Fontodi, La Massa and Poggio Scalette are present in the list of reds, whereas amongst the whites there is a strong preference for the northern regions of Alto Adige and Friuli.
