Portrait Michelin Starred Chef Gaetano Trovato and Restaurant Arnolfo

Food lovers should not miss Arnolfo, one of the best restaurants in Tuscany.
Gaetano Trovato


Gaetano and Giovanni, the owners of Ristorante Arnolfo in Colle Val D'Elsa, are two brothers who originally have their roots in Sicily and come from a typical large family, where mother Concetta was a housewife and their father was a farmer who said "Reaffirm our mother is a great cook both." From
there, always use regional products harvested and according to the season. Love comes to "good food".

The gourmet palate is tickled at the restaurant Arnolfo, here there is a painted sign "at home" due to the individual service and he openness of the owner. The restaurant Arnolfo is in a palazzo from the 16th Century. Lovingly restored, it offers simplicity in furnishings and the attention to the smallest detail. It reflects a balanced mix of antique furniture and handcrafted Baccarat chandeliers with a few selected images of modern art. The tables are stocked with fine white porcelain, which is supplemented with simple crystal glasses. Colle, where the restaurant is, is a town of crystal production in Tuscany.

Giovanni Trovato is the sommelier and maitre at Arnolfo and with his attention to detail, nothing escapes. He has personally selected 13,000 bottles precious wine from all over the world. The wine list is one of the best in Tuscany.

The restaurant was founded in 1982 by Gaetano. It has been awarded two Michelin stars, it is a member of Relais & Chateaux and is a must for any traveler who visits Colle Val d'Elsa, a small medieval town near Siena. Arnolfo's name is derived from the famous sculptor and architect of the 12th Century: Arnolfo di Cambio, who was born here. Gaetano places extreme value on rigorous product quality and the suppliers are small farmers from the surrounding area.

If you look out the windows of the dining room, the view opens on a typical unspoilt Tuscan countryside. In summer, dinner is taken on the terrace, it is idyllic.
