Sit at your table, in the heart of the historic center of Florence, and get ready to experience a sensory journey in taste and authenticity. Welcome to Benedicta Restaurant, the restaurant at Rivoli Boutique Hotel, an intimate and cozy temple of typical Tuscan cuisine, where the unique and unmistakable flavor of simplicity is exalted every day. The popular and at the same time philosophical soul of the city, which is revealed in recipes such as the bistecca alla fiorentina and ribollita, which are revisited by our chef in a contemporary key, with international, eclectic and personal touches.
Every dish served at the Benedicta Restaurant bears Chef Luciano Ioppoli’s signature, who, together with his children, has elaborated recipes capable of awakening the senses. From meat to fish, passing through truffles, thinking of delighting the palate of children with simple and genuine preparations, welcoming all specific requests with tailor-made elaborations: Gluten free (ask your waiter), vegetarian and vegan dishes. Dinner becomes an exclusive little luxury, an unforgettable experience for explorers of taste.
The menu follows the seasons and evokes their passing, combining fresh food with wines carefully chosen for their contrast or enhancement of the dishes. During the summer the restaurant opens to the outdoors into the lush secret garden, while all year round it is pleasant to sit inside a modern and refined setting. Ancient brick vaults meet contemporary architectural elements, creating a welcoming and casually elegant atmosphere.
Luciano, Andrea, Benedetta and Francesco (ISA Sommelier) are waiting to accompany you in a sensory experience in the excellence of Italian and Tuscan culinary arts. Beef tartare, tenderloin with pink peppercorn and Blu del Monviso sauce, saffron risotto with whipped codfish and liquorice powder as well as other cult dishes are awaiting you to throw wide the doors to an as yet unexplored region of pleasure and well-being.
