Genuine Tuscan Cooking

La Selvella provides its guests with a hearty breakfast using their own free-range eggs, homemade cakes and biscuits, as well as a large selection of local cured meats, a variety of bread, fruit juices and yoghurt.
For dinner La Selvella offers a fixed menu of Tuscan dishes using organic homegrown vegetables, cereals and legumes mostly coming from our own
permaculture vegetable garden. Homemade pasta and a selection of locally raised meat all cooked with large doses of care and passion. We wish to pass on to our guests our love and respect for this land which plays an essential role in our life and cuisine.
