Special (Birthday) Dinner in Tuscany

Hi, My parents and their friends are headed to Italy for a couple of weeks and will be staying in a villa in Asciano on the day my father hits the big 6-0. They looked into hiring a private chef to cook a special dinner, but it was either way out of their price range or no one was available. Anyone have any suggestions on a really special restaurant in that general area, near Siena, San Gimignano, Asciano. Price isn't too much of an issue, but i'd say somewhere over the 500$ mark (for 4) might be pushing it.

I'd like to find them something really special, since I won't be there to celebrate.

  1. Da Miretta is at Pievina (sometimes called La Pievina), on the main road between Asciano and Siena, ...its great, also in florence a must is zibibbo

    1. la querece in levane is fabulous,its near montevarchi its the real deal..virtually zero touristas yea , great tuscan eats

      1. La Tenda Rosa is a very special place but it's NW of Florence by about 20 minutes

        1. Villa San Michele in Fiesole comes to mind. I don't know about their prices, but it might be worth looking into. The place is really gorgeous.
