We pride ourselves in finding all the places that local Italians would go avoiding the tourist traps! Here is a short list of some of our favourites, but a full list will be given if you decide to take part in a TTH adventure!
We would recommend eating outside the city walls to avoid the more touristy options. All the suggestions below are within a short drive of the tennis club in beautiful Tuscan settings.
Cantina di Alfredo
Via di Colognara 32, Colognara di Compito, near San Ginese
