The cuisine at each of Monteverdi’s dining venues reflects Executive Chef Giancarla Bodoni’s steadfast commitment to a zero kilometer philosophy. Ever-changing menus incorporate the season’s freshest produce sourced daily from Monteverdi’s gardens and Tuscany’s finest organic farms.
Bodoni came to Monteverdi three years ago after more than two decades at the helm of her celebrated Miami restaurant, Escopazzo, the first certified organic Italian restaurant in the United States. She has been named “Best Organic Chef” by the Miami New Times, and a “Critic’s Choice” honoree by Food & Wine.
Oreade is Monteverdi’s award-winning fine dining restaurant. Named after the mythological nymphs who frolicked in the nearby forests, Oreade was crowned “Best Hotel Restaurant” by Mr & Mrs Smith in 2015 and 2016. Breakfast and dinner are served in its intimate, rustic setting – the environment aligned ideally with the cuisine.
The Enoteca, meanwhile, is the premiere location for lunch and wine tasting. Outdoor tables overlook the piazza, the 14th-century church of Sant’ Andrea, Monte Cetona, and the expansive hills and valleys of the Val d’Orcia.
Inside, a state-of-the-art wine dispensing system is filled with rare and famous vintages from the surrounding Tuscan region. Thanks to Bodoni’s close relationships with many of Tuscany’s finest vintners, the wine list features the region’s best producers of Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Super Tuscans and other renowned wines throughout Italy and Sicily.
In the expansive Monteverdi Lounge and Terrace Bar, an elegant Fazioli grand piano greets guests, as does an enormous wood-burning fireplace, while sumptuously textured sofas and chairs line the room, inviting a glass of wine with friends new and old alike. The relaxed vibe of the Monteverdi Lounge spills out onto the generous, adjoining stone terrace – the ideal spot to experience the incomparable Tuscan sunset while enjoying an aperitif.
And finally, there is the intimate Library Bar, inviting guests to linger on its picture-perfect terrace, or cozy up inside for conversation, contemplation, or to flip through pages of a myriad of books.
