AL 43 IS OPEN
Tuesday / Sunday
from 12:30pm – 2:00pm for lunch
and 7:30pm – 9:30pm for dinner
Whether our guests choose to dine inside surrounded by works of contemporary art, or outside overlooking the Tuscan hills, every detail of our farmhouse restaurant has been created to deliver a friendly and sophisticated experience with specially prepared, gourmet cuisine. With a maximum of just 20 guests in order to ensure comfortable, personal attention, we are proud to deliver traditional Tuscan hospitality at its finest.
In 2018, AL 43 embarked upon a new mission to deliver the traditional flavours of Tuscan cuisine in a refined, sophisticated and exciting menu; taking the freshest of local ingredients and combining them with a twist to create gourmet food of the highest quality.
This new direction was received so well that our agriristorante was awarded a Michelin star in its first year; a recognition that was reconfirmed in 2020.
"We wanted to create a totally new, regenerating experience. The ingredients are the absolute stars: they are all produced locally, absolutely fresh and totally genuine. Our recipes bring out the very best of Tuscan flavours with a hint of the unexpected"

Tuscany cuisine offers a wealth of unmistakeable flavours and aromas, and at Locanda dell’Artista we take great pride in harvesting many of these from our own kitchen garden. From late spring to autumn, many of the delicious vegetables, summer fruits and herbs that are used to create our restaurant dishes come each day from the garden.
Our ‘Garden Of Delicacies’ is just a few steps away from the restaurant and seeing the ingredients on the menu being picked before our guests’ eyes is a true delight. Whether from our garden, or from home-grown, local suppliers we demand the finest produce which is showcased in the quality of our food.
The millennia old gastronomic traditions and unspoiled countryside of Tuscany make for a land of wines par excellence. Tuscany is jeweled with splendid medieval castles, historic villas, vineyards and farmhouses, all set in idyllic landscapes thus delighting the most sophisticated visitor.
