For the freshest flavors, Il Palagio sources seasonal ingredients from artisan producers throughout Tuscany.

The restaurant occupies the former stable block at the Renaissance Palazzo della Gherardesca and boasts distinctive period vaulted ceiling and columns. The interior is embellished with pale silver and rose accents. Generous French doors open onto a summer terrace and offer scenic views of the Four Seasons’ private garden. Executive Chef Vito Mollica offers mouthwatering tasting menus, harmonized with exquisite wine pairings. Vito Mollica’s unique creations include violets with Moscato wine vinegar dressing, glazed sweetbreads and black cabbage flan. And choose from desserts such as the delectable chocolate and hazelnut cylinder with caramel ice cream and an espresso sabayon. In the heart of Il Palagio, guests will find the Winery Room with around 400 bottles on display. Select from a menu of small dishes designed to complement exquisite vintages, which can be tasted by the glass.
