Via Umberto I - Montisi - Siena

Cooking is a way of eating, eating is a way of loving.

From the meeting with local producers we select the raw materials every day, we love to respect the natural succession of the seasons and, where possible, we choose to use organic products. Ritorno di Fiamma is nestled within the walls of Montisi (Siena) and offers refined food and wine specialties.

The value of good food.

Hospitality, local taste and shared passion

The value of a good cuisine is the sum of great raw materials  combined with the dedication and love lavished in preparing them.

The perfect union between feeling and taste.

Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you are destined for. But do not hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you are old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you have gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to make you rich. Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey. Without her, you would not have set out. She has nothing left to give you now. And if you find her poor, Ithaka won't have fooled you. Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, you will have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.

Extract of the poetry "Itaca", by Costantino Kavafis

My very kind guests, the phrase you will read before entering my restaurant "Ritorno di Fiamma", I hope it will convey the meaning, the measure, the passion with which we have thought and prepared our dishes for you, playing with the imagination between Tuscan tradition and innovation. I dedicate and share all this with my son Lapo who accompanies me at all times of the day helping me in the inspiration and creation of the dishes.
