Ristorante Mater

Nature. This is what is at the heart of everything that Mater does, it is its ethos and its lifeblood. Located right in the heart of the Casentinesi Forests National Park, the scents and views of the forest influence everything from the decor to the cuisine created by Chef Filippo Baroni, really making you feel that you are dining in the middle of this slice of Tuscan nature.

JRE JRE-Jeunes Restaurateurs

For a young chef, Filippo Baroni has certainly achieved a lot and his work has become well known in the Tuscan region and further afield. Born in 1982, Filippo attended catering school in Chianciano Terme before opening the “I Tre Baroni” project of hotels and restaurants with his two brothers. Once these were up and running he achieved his dream in 2017 of opening Mater, alongside his wife, Marta Bidi.

Ristorante Mater

Using nature as the main source ingredients for all dishes served at Mater, Filippo Baroni has created a unique way of turning the simplest ingredients into something special. With the stunning Casentinesi Forests National Park as a backdrop, stepping into Mater is like stepping into another world that is in complete harmony with its surroundings.

Mater's cuisine

The Mater Restaurant is a place to take back your time. Nature as an ingredient. A simple cuisine that tastes like forest, wild herbs and seasonality. Our cuisine is the result of the place where we live: mountain cuisine, wild herbs, woods, game. But it is also a continuous search for an atavistic taste that has crossed modernity and the avant-gardes and reaches today, marked by a rule handed down to us by the monks.

Moggiona surroundings

The Mater is located inside the National Park of the Casentinesi Forests, a stone's throw from the monastery and hermitage of the Camaldolese monks. The Casentino is a valley in province of Arezzo, in the Apennines Tosco-Romagnolo. Must see: Poppi castle and the hamlet, the Sanctuary of La Verna.

TASTE: Nature as our main ingredient in every season: following the ancient tradition, from the wild herbs to the local products

Hotel Borgo | Tre Baroni
