Our cooking philosophy is based on the search of the perfect connection and harmony between the flavors of our land and the best labels of Evo oil. Enjoy the atmosphere and the panorama of a charming location on the hills of Florence, for an important occasion or a special evening, for a corporate dinner or a particular event in an elegant and reserved context.
One of the characteristics that distinguishes us in the use of EVO oil.
In addition to the Bio one that we produced in the Borgo i Vicelli farm , you can find over 100 labels from all over Italy, for this reason oil becomes the main element of each dish and protagonist of the cuisine of Al 588, winner of the Best Oil restaurant award 2019 for the guide Flos Olei.
" Oil is not a condiment but a real ingredient that makes the difference in every dish "
The restaurant is located in the old country chic tavern of Borgo i Vicelli and accommodates up to a maximum of 35 people.
In summer and in fine weather, it is possible to dine poolside or under the loggia of the manor house, which has been renovated with floor-to-ceiling windows and heating to offer the possibility of dining outside even in the mid-season .
We enjoy specialties that follow the rhythm of the seasons and the principles of zero-kilometer cuisine with many products from our organic garden. The wines are selected by sommelier Andrea Armas chosen exclusively from the best small productions of Tuscan wineries.
