An organic restaurant in the centre of Florence, a stone’s throw from the Cathedral, Il Desco Bistrot provides natural cuisine with fresh, quality Tuscan products, grown on our family farm in the Florentine hills, Podere La Croce.
The farm-to-table cuisine of this Florentine bistro provides seasonal menus for all kind of palates, with tasty recipes also for vegetarians and celiacs.
Il Desco Bistrot of Florence welcomes you from 12.00 p.m. to 10 p.m. into a homely environment with a cosy and intimate atmosphere where every dish is prepared with passion.
Choosing ingredients and creating menus together with Shams and our chef is my passion. Seeing our project becoming a reality and growing with our team is satisfying beyond words!
I manage the Bistro with Giulia and I love choosing the wines that will work with simple recipes and ingredients from our region, following the course of the seasons and authentic flavours.
Every time you go organic, you are guaranteed to have a product that has been made respecting nature and animals. I am in charge of the family farm La Croce, in order to provide fresh and natural products every day that respects the cycle of nature and enhances the tasty recipes by Il Desco!
I select quality ingredients first which I then use to create healthy and tasty recipes with Francesco Bernetti and Enrico Lo Presti. Our organic cuisine doesn’t skimp on taste and we are always experimenting.
I’ve always been a sommelier, I love my job and that’s why I’m expecting you! You just need to concentrate on the joy of tasting our recipes and wines and we’ll take care of the rest!
In order to allow our customers to fully experience the joy of our bistro two things are needed: good background music and the preparation of tasty and beautiful dishes…the latter is my task!
Passion and fun are the necessary ingredients required to do my job in the best way and at Il Desco fun is guaranteed!
Professionalism and a sunny disposition are our trademark when it comes to service. Recipes, wines, staff, everything reflects an atmosphere of simplicity, but with good taste!
