Via dei Conti 8r
I first read about Beatrice Segoni during the exhibition of Pontormo at the Palazzo Strozzi in March 2014. Beatrice was one of the great chefs in the book of Pontormo’s Table created by Italian Food Journalist Annamaria Tossani. I soon learnt that she worked with Italian master chef Gianfranco Vissani for more than three years.
At the time the book Pontormo’s Table was published Beatrice was the head chef at Hotel Lungarno’s J – Restaurant on Borgo San Jacopo. Followed by a short time at Convivium Firenze to finally arrive at Konnubio.
Konnubio’s perfect setting of contemporary and traditional style makes you immediately feel at home. The professional friendly staff are attentive and accommodating.
For lunch I chose the fish tasting starter, first course and second course. The fresh tuna was top quality, the hand made small gnocchi was too perfection and the monkfish was outstanding.
Mario had the Seitan Carpaccio and Diego enjoyed spaghetti Ragu’. You can find a large selection of Vegan and gluten free products. The wine list is also excellent. All round I will certainly be adding this restaurant to my list of Florentine favourites.
