Piazza della Repubblica, 7, 50123
Alle Murate is both a restaurant and xa museum.
Residing in the historical Palazzo della Arte dei Giudici e Notai – palace of judges and notaries – the restaurant’s frescoes include the earliest recorded depiction of Dante and Boccaccio. History buffs will be delighted to learn that the palace’s Roman foundations can be viewed in the basement. Offering traditional Tuscan dishes, including Pappardelle with Chianina beef ragout and T-bone steak, Giovanna Iorio prefers the title of ‘cook’ to ‘head chef’. There are many creative dishes on the menu, such as celery soup with pineapple and scallops, or stone bass fillet with red beetroots and stewed savoy cabbage with capers. The restaurant’s cellar includes wines from smaller producers in addition to great Italian and French labels. Gothic candleholders, exposed brickwork and white linens create a romantic atmosphere. For a private tour of the palace or to organize a private event, contact Restaurant Manager Silvia Del Priore.
