The restaurant is very light and spacious and boasts a superb kitchen.
Management is in the hands of the Societá Golf Forentia, owned by the Scotto di Perotolo family. They are assisted by chef, Stefano Mangini, and the ever courteous Sarah. The family is from Campania originally, and their passion is to combine the traditional tastes of Campania and Tuscany into exciting dishes. They are of course accompanied by quality wines. They provide a flexible all-day service to accommodate the needs of golfers. During the summer, an open-air grill around the poolside on Thursday evenings has become a “must.” Guests who come to golf at Ugolino retain a warm and lasting memory of the restaurant.
The clubhouse of Ugolino is an example of the futuristic or art deco style of architecture that was prevalent in the 1930s. The architect was Ghirardo Bosio, a noted city planner of the fascist period. It is a listed building, protected by the Florentine Institute Responsible for Cultural Heritage. The building sits strategically on top of a hill surrounded by meadowlands, filled with cypresses and pines. All 18 holes are laid out in a circle around the clubhouse.
The building itself is a three-story construction. The ground floor has management offices and locker rooms. The first floor is dedicated to a spacious bar, a restaurant, and a lounge. Surrounding this floor is a huge terrace giving marvelous panoramic views of the hilly countryside. The second floor has a card room, a billiard room, and a terrace which overlooks the eighteenth green.
