At Ristorante Francy, located inside the Hotel Montecatini Palace & Spa, tradition meets modernity.
On its à la carte menu you will find Italian culinary tradition with an international haute cuisine twist, from Chianina beef tartare with Himalayan salt to salt cod cappellacci ravioli with a Livorno style ragù. Dishes which change each month, in line with the seasonality and availability of their ingredients, always fresh, and purchased from local producers wherever possible.
Inside, you'll find sophisticated grey and cream tones, with large windows bringing light and beautiful views. In the warmer months, you can enjoy the unique pleasure of dining outdoors, under the hi-tech gazebo, which provides shelter from the sun without restricting the wonderful summer breeze, amidst the water jets and clever lighting that illuminates the hotel by night.
