A self confessed Foodie and bon viveur, there is no doubt that I have been lucky enough to discover and return year after year, to some of the most wonderful restaurants, in Argentario. Consider this to be my hommage as it were to the local culinary delights and my personal little black book of restaurants, delis etc.




Da Sandra, Magliano

Da Sandra is something of an institution set in the very heart, of the picturesque town of Magliano. Just a short drive from Santo Stefano, and through the rolling Tuscan countryside following signs for Magliano, one will eventually behold the walls of the fortress, usually illuminated with that soft almost pink lighting, one seems to only get in Italy. Da Sandra is one of those gems, you would like to keep secret, but can't help but recommend it year after year to family and friends. Named after the infamous Sandra, the wife of the owner and chef behind the incredible food, Da Sandra has been around for as long as I can remember, and has always remained a real treat for my family. Indeed either for big birthday celebrations or a dinner out of season, when the town is more sleepy, there is something so soothing about going to Da Sandra. Read more

Il Frantoio, Capalbio

Right in the very heart of the picturesque, mediaeval town of Capalbio lies the infamous Frantoio, something of a cultural hub, overlooking the main Piazetta. What was once the town’s olive mill has transformed and been lovingly restored into an upmarket Trattoria, serving up some of the best Bloody Mary’s in town not to mention the most delicious Tuscan piatti, using only the freshest of locally sourced produce. The bar is a nod to a downtown New York bar with a great atmosphere, music, cocktails and aperitivi; this is certainly a punto di ritrovo for people in the know. Read more

Convento Padri Passionisti - Monte Argentario.jpg

La Sorgente, Argentario

When one is tired of the sun and the sea, its nice to head to the refreshing heights of Monte Argentario, taking in the beautiful, sparkling view of the Cala Galera bellow and walking around the beautiful church, which belongs to the Convento Padri Passionisti. In the middle of woodland, you will find a simple, rustic outdoor restaurant, where you can sample the finest parpadelle al cingiarle, sagra style. It’s not chic by any standards, but it is family orientated and authentic.
