Beccofino is fresh seafood, elegant wines and a sophisticated atmosphere.
Finely sliced shrimp swirled over a tomato and pesto sauce, a tower of octopus and cuttlefish rising above seasoned olive oil or ravioli stuffed with codfish are some of the tempting first courses. For a second, try the filet mignon grilled with orange grinds or the sea bass with potato, onion and zucchini mash.
The list of Beccofino wines does more than compliment your meal. Over fifty blends (luckily you can order by the glass) are served with the utmost gusto and can be enjoyed more exclusively along with lighter dishes and appetizers at the wine bar.
New music compositions, including jazz and some house, including some of the best CD collections from restaurants and hotels around Europe, add yet another flavor to an unforgettable night.
Note to traditionalists:
If traditional Tuscan fare or hearty portions is what you’re after, try La Giostra on Borgo Pinti.
