Traveling to Tuscany almost always involves several gastronomic adventures as it very well should. Whatever the reason for making the Mugello valley your ‘home away from home‘ as a vacation destination, of course wonderful cuisine should be top on your list. The famous potato tortelli with homemade ragu and much more. Since we are food obsessed here at Villa Campestri olive oil resort, we wanted to share our top spots for a nice meal.

Our olive-oil menu features delights such as the famous tortelli di patate del mugello (pasta filled with potato covered in a ragu sauce) and olive-oil ice cream. We also offer special packages including dinner or lunch with wine to match that will entice any gourmet lover.

2. Tirabaralla osteria

{Borgo San Lorenzo – Viale IV Novembre, 16/20, 50032 Borgo San Lorenzo, 10 km away from Villa Campestri}. This is a rustic osteria serving up traditional dishes from the local area and is one of our favorites for dinner in the area. Try their cured meats & cheeses and wonderful pasta with traditional ragu sauce.

{Località Traversa (Passo della Futa), 50033 Firenzuola Tuscany – 36 km away}. A really goos restaurant in the Firenzuola area of the Mugello valley.
