We are happy to welcome you to Ristorante IL MARZOCCO. This restaurant came about because of our passion for food.  Above all else we wanted to create what we felt was the perfect restaurant and wine bar.

Located in the medieval hill-top town of Larciano Castello, the restaurant is in the shadow of a 700 year fortress, while overlooking the beautiful Valley of Nievole. Here you will find great food accompanied by a beautiful and relaxing ambiance; perfect for intimate, candle-lit dinners or a memorable meal with family and friends.

Our Restaurant

Elegance, good taste and intimacy…

Our dining areas are located over two floors and in the summer months we have several outdoor eating areas. The rooms are tastefully and modestly decorated, the outdoor patios have stunning vistas.

The Kitchen

Our focus is on giving a voice to all the flavours that make-up the Tuscan cuisine. Pastas are made from scratch, olive oils, cured meats and raw ingredients are sourced from local suppliers.

What we find in the market influences the daily menu variations and priority is always given to what is in season.

While Il Marzocco started off with a strong focus on meat dishes sourced by a local butcher and continues to serve Fiorentina steaks and fillets; Our attention as of late has shifted towards the sea. Fish allows for greater creativity in the kitchen and more opportunity to mix and match flavours; after all there is only one or two ways to prepare a great steak.

Our Cellar

In 2006 Ylenia realized her dream of becoming a sommelier. For the past 6 years, when she has not been working in the restaurant, she has been touring small vineyards across Italy looking for niche producers with great wines.

The result of this labour of love is a fully stocked cantina with hidden gems from across all of Italy.

With over 150 different labels in stock, Ylenia takes great pride in her ability to pair wines with customers’ meals, budgets and mood.

Put yourself in her hands and you will not be disappointed with the results.
