Special (Birthday) Dinner in Tuscany

jk1234 Sep 17, 2007 06:47 AM

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.

    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.

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