La Villa restaurant
L’Andana has its own restaurant called La Villa. The kitchen has the cosy, informal atmosphere of a domestic kitchen and leads to an intimate dining room with a pretty stone fireplace and from there to a superb veranda overlooking the park, the chapel and the crystal-clear water of a romantic swimming pool nestling among cypresses and maritime pines.
Breakfast at L’Andana is an experience that none can forget. The cast iron ovens in the kitchen turn out each morning freshly baked doughnuts, orange flower brioches, currant buns and cheese-cake. Other specialities includes slices of Tuscan cinta ham, tasty mozzarella cheeses and vegetables in season. Home-made yogurt, jam and marmalade are a must, as are fresh eggs prepared in a variety of different ways. Just choose your favourite and the chef will cook the dish in front of you so that you can enjoy it in all its energy-giving splendour.
La Villa also serves delicious lunches and dinners, from a menu that varies with the season. The dishes are prepared by the same chefs as those at La Trattoria Enrico Bartolini. They all reflect genuine local traditions, where the delicate tastes of food from the sea flank stronger ones from the land: risotto with peas, streaky bacon and pecorino cheese is followed by anglerfish and courgette flower tortello, stewed octopus and Borlotti beans, and ossobuco with potatoes and celery. The desserts are shamelessly scrumptious and combine different consistencies and temperatures, such as melted chocolate and pistachio ice-cream or warm granny Smith’s apple and sorbet tart.
LA VILLA restaurant is open daily.
Lunch is served from 12.30 to 2.30pm
