Ristorante I Tre Pini Florence


Fratelli Saraceni Santus



I Tre Pini







Villa Alinari, established in the 14th century, is set in the enchanting hills of Chianti, between magnificent thick stone walls and large wooden doors.

It was originally a villa and a farmhouse belonging to, among others, Lorenzo De’ Medici. It then became an osteria and a post house where travelers would stop to rest and change their horses before continuing along the road known as “The Wine Road” of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini.

Careful and sensitive restoration work has now turned it into the elegant restaurant, I Tre Pini… with the aim to continue the rustic and refined cuisine of the Tuscan Renaissance.


Traditional home cooking is the heart of I Tre Pini, which aims to enhance the quality and freshness of its dishes reminding us of flavors long forgotten.

The specialties are prepared with great care by passionate, expert hands that include all the love for cooking and tradition of the area into each dish.

Everything is seasonal at the Inn as we buy greens and vegetables from our local producers. Each ingredient is produced and bought seasonally so that it can be highly appreciated and above all, help the local and rural economy of our “neighbors”.

Welcome to Ristorante I Tre Pini in Villa Alinari.


“Behind the old wooden door…our family secrets for Tuscan excellence.”

Our mission is to serve others as we would want to be served ourselves. Our vision of simple luxury, local experience and hospitality has come to touch the souls of people all over the world.

The secret of the Saraceni group isn’t simply about what can be seen or touched, it’s intangible, it’s about what can be felt and experienced.

Two generations of the Saraceni family have grown their business from a single restaurant in the heart of the Tuscan hills into a world renowned hospitality brand recognized all over the world for its distinguished and historical venues, its embracing service and its exclusive high quality dishes based on family recipes brought to an international challenge.

…a family dream became reality.

“Traditional Tuscan cuisine, wholesome dishes and ingredients from our land.
 Founded and managed by our family of four generations, we follow a philosophy of quality and tradition.”


The Saraceni Group

Wine, Restaurants & Hospitality.

Made in Italy. Enjoyed Worldwide.

Since the beginning, the Saraceni family wanted to include several unique activities and products to their company that shared their core values and passions: “high quality, strong ties with the territory and professional reliability”. This lead to the creation of what is now an inspiring group of food, beverage and hospitality services.

The Saraceni Group is therefore composed by, alongside the production of wines, renowned and exclusive restaurants including, Ristorante I Tre Pini and the famous, Villa Machiavelli in Chianti Classico, one of the most historical winery/restaurants in Italy.

Soon new brands and family estates will join the group to perpetuate and share our family values.

Information and schedule about the Tuscan Cooking Course below:

Visit to the S. Ambrogio Market

S. Ambrogio Market is situated in the large 1860’s building in Piazza Ghiberti where it is surrounded by many additional stalls outside. Here you will find a full array of fresh foodstuffs to create a real Italian table, from pasta to meat and fish to, of course, lots of fresh vegetables.

Many Florentine’s come to this market weekly to gather the items they need for a healthy and traditional week of meals. You will also find a variety of clothing and general household goods.

Welcome drink at the Restaurant

Arrival and welcome drink Fragolino at the restaurant Tre Pini. Libero, the chef-owner, will present the program of the morning and split the group into two parts which alternate in the following activities.

Pasta in Tuscan Cuisine

The first cooking activity we will concentrate on the main speciality of Italian and Tuscan cuisine, home made pasta (tagliatelle, tagliolini, tortelli with in-season fillings, pappardelle).

Rural Tuscan Soup and starters

The cooking course of specialities from Tuscan will, of course, teach you how to prepare our delicious rural soups – as the tasty Ribollita or Pappa al pomodoro, using the precious Tuscan extra virgin olive oil and several special ingredients as Mediterranean vegetables.

Discover the secret recipe of the famous Panzanella. Learn how to cook delicious sauces with wild boar, early vegetables and chiantigiana sauce!

Prepare tasty starters as Tuscan croutons and our tomato bruschetta and Lardo with cavolo nero bruschetta.

Traditional Tuscan Cake

On the last cooking activities of our Tuscan cooking course, the “icing on the cake”, we will have fun creating typical cakes of the traditional Chianti cuisine as the typical Cantucci (a kind of biscuit) served with vin santo (holy wine).

Mise en place and wine selection
