Homemade Italian Cuisine

It’s not a true stay at Casetta until you dine with us. Meals, carefully made by our own in-house cook Angela, are meant to be shared, enjoyed with good company and even better with wine. Angela will take care of all your indulgences, from breakfast – fresh juice, yoghurt, fruit, muesli, homemade bread and jams, coffees, espresso, eggs prepared to your order, fresh berries, until dinner al fresco Tuscan style. Make sure you don’t leave without having a pizza evening under the stars with Gabriele our pizzaiolo. All you have to do is let us know what time you’d like it.

If you care for a picnic in the country, we would happily pack a basket, with schiacciata, pecorino cheese, prosciutto crudo, salami, olives, nuts, seasonal fruits, and Italian wines.

Don’t Resist, Just Give In From Xenia

Let me give you some advice. Don’t even try to diet in Italy (unfortunately I am proof of that). However eating healthy is still top of mind since all our dishes are homemade and use the best seasonal produce and local ingredients.

Special Requests We’ve got you covered

We have created dinner parties ranging from four people to one hundred. And we don’t forget the live music. Just bring yourself, your guests, your Tik Tok dance moves, and an appetite! Chef Jeff is our culinary mastermind and secret weapon for creating not just dinner but a complete dining experience for our guests. You may wonder why it’s so quiet as everyone will be busy eating!

Our traditional wood fire pizza oven is a family favorite. Kids and adults love to roll and knead the dough (pro-tip: a great stress reliever) and customise their own pizza with ingredients that have journeyed less than ten km.

Pasta is like oxygen for Italians. We need it to survive. Since you are part of our inner circle now, we may consider sharing our very simple but delicious recipe for hand-made pasta complemented with a savoury sauce of your choice like fungi, seasonal truffle, ragù or maybe fresh tomatoes and loads of garlic. Did someone say gluten-free? Vegan? No Problem!

Delicious Tuscan dinners are prepared using seasonal vegetables from the garden and local produce.

Olio Di Oliva Liquid Gold

Casetta is surrounded by more than a thousand olive trees which are used to produce the highly coveted extra virgin olive oil that you will sample in our cooking. The olives are harvested every autumn, usually in October and cold pressed immediately within 10 hours of picking at our local frantoio. The resulting oil is then independently assessed to assure the premium quality our clients and guests have come to expect.

Wine & Cocktails What in the world is a Roveta Dodici?

Xenia will take your passport away if you do not have a glass of wine (or two) while enjoying the sweeping vistas of the peaceful countryside. You can chill out pool side, while sipping Casetta’s signature cocktail, the Roveta Dodici, made with muddled raspberries and local vodka. You cannot get this drink anywhere else, except in one secret village, at one secret bar with a secret password – only for Casetta guests. We’ll tip you off if you promise not to tell. It’s our secret.

Since wine does flow like water in Tuscany, we always have several varieties on hand to open. Full honesty bar available whenever you like. No special occasion required.
