Someone could argue that prime season for Italian ingredients is early Summer... I do not completely disagree with that; since I was I kid I have always enjoyed the bountiful of vegetables and fruit that our family farm would produce that time of the year. Not many things can compete with a fresh summer dinner in Tuscany: if you have been there you know what I am talking about, if you have friends that traveled there I am sure they have not shut up about it since.
Something magical though happens when winter comes around, and farm life comes to a stand still: everybody gathers in front of the fireplace, which in Tuscan farms is also the stove, meals and stories are shared and bonds are strengthen.
Farmers become hunters for the season, they roam their fields in camouflage every day almost as if they were on a recon mission. They study the landscape, keep track of trees and wildlife... At times trees are old and die, they become wood for the fireplace. At times a boar or a hare gets into the wrong trail, and they become dinner.
Join us at The Tuscan Gun for a true celebration of Fiesole, its hunters and some of the most traditional fall dishes.

As always, given the nature of our events and the small size of our room, tickets are transferrable but not refundable. Please double check your calendar before pulling the trigger!
Our shop is not a restaurant but rather a communal dining room. We do not fire our orders based on your arrival time, we do not use heating lamps and we get sad when our food gets cold because a guest is late. Pretend you are coming to dinner at grandma… mine used to smack me if I was late for Sunday supper. We won’t get physical, we will just start without you around 7.15.
We will offer a selection of Prosecco, Red and White wine, Beer and Digestif by the glass or by the bottle.
If you have been saving a bottle of Brunello for a special occasion feel free to bring it, we charge a $15 corking fee with a maximum of 1 bottle for every two people.
Taxes and Fees are included in this purchase.
Alcohol and Gratuity are not included.
