When we asked some of our Travel Consultants about their best luxury travel dining experiences, Jacqueline Smith told us that her lunch at the beautiful L’Incontro Restaurant at the Hotel Savoy, a Rocco Forte Hotel in Florence, was a really lovely experience. For starters it has a wonderful location overlooking the Piazza della Republica – an elegant square in the centre of the city, edged with restaurants and cafes – where you can dine al fresco in the warmer months. The restaurant’s menu is created by Two Michelin Star Chef, Fulvio Pierangelini, so you are in for a treat and the ambience is a delightful blend of relaxed sophistication. Plenty of Italian flavour infuses dishes such as Marinated Fresh Mozzarella and Tomatoes to start, pasta courses including Lasagna with 'Chianina' Beef Ragout, mains of Sea Bass with Sautéed Artichokes and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Potatoes, and naughty but nice desserts including Tiramisù. Service is fantastic and even though the venue is popular, you won’t feel like you are being rushed; just free to enjoy the real sense you get of being in Italy amongst the locals, with friends and families meeting for lunch around you. Jacqueline says, “L’Incontro is perfect for whiling away a couple of hours with some great food, plenty of Prosecco and lots of people watching, but as it’s always reassuringly busy you should definitely pre-book a table through Elegant Resorts.”
