Festival patrons have a wide range of dining options at the NGF. Food stands catering to all dietary requirements can be found across the gardens of the Palazzo Corsini, and luxury hampers are available to order for those wishing to picnic in the grounds. We are also introducing the Nugolo Restaurant in the magnificent setting of the Palazzo Corsini’s Limonaia.

IL RISTORANTE NUGOLO

Guests can reserve a table at Nugolo restaurant every night of the festival.

This wonderful addition to our programme is the creation of Nerina Martinelli, a young Florentine chef and entrepreneur. The NGF is delighted to welcome Nerina and her team of new generation talents. The kitchens will be headed by Nugolo Chef Simone Caponnetto, sous-chef Antonio Badalamenti, and Chef Ambra Papa who has been specially invited for the festival. The New Generation Festival is very excited to be hosting Nugolo which will be relocating from its site on via della Mattonaia in Sant’ Ambrogio to the Corsini Gardens for the duration of our festival.

To guarantee your place at Nugolo we recommend you reserve on the booking section of our website. Click Buy Tickets above to book.
