Il Palagio at Four Seasons Firenze | Florence, Italy | Dinner last night at Il Palagio by Four Seasons Florence with Rubin, was just P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N. I would call it comfortably elegant, a true gourmet experience for all senses. From the moment you walk into the Palazzo della Gherardesca, you get a sense of place, a sanctuary of sophistication and high class. Located in Borgo Pinti, only 10 minutes away from our hotel the Villa San Michele. This Michelin-starred restaurant by Executive Chef Vito Mollica and his professional team, captures the magic of Florence – authentic Italian cuisine, superb wines and an exquisite indoor-outdoor setting. Exceptional local offerings, food that’s meant to be savoured with our equally outstanding wine list – more than 400 exquisite wines, including 50 served by the glass. Inventive and authentic, stylish but relaxed, Il Palagio offers one of the most memorable dining experiences and settings of all the restaurants in Florence.
