Ristorante Enoteca in Montecatini Terme
The business started in 1967 as a wine cellar and tasting area. In 1984 it became a restaurant, under the name of Ristorante Enoteca Giovanni.
Giovanni welcomes his guests either as a Chef and a Sommelier, because, as he says… “Today a restaurant where the owner is not directly involved in the kitchen work will not play a major role in its activity”.
The menu includes food from the land and the sea, and both of them share the same priorities. Ingredients are selected day by day, thanks to Giovanni’s personal presence on the local market. As he puts it… “The geographical area where we are located is particularly rich in fresh, first grade ingredients, either fish or meat“. The hills all around Montecatini offer wonderful mushrooms, and nearby San Miniato is an inexaustible “mine” of one of the most appreciated products of the Italian cuisine in the world: truffles.
