Simple good local fare: Needs outside space

We went for dinner before opera and had a good standard evening meal. All staff were friendly and helpful. Generally smart environment with sound but uninspiring food. Reasonably priced and located right next to the Puccini festival opera. No outside space to dine. Go early!

Wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere. The service was, as expected from a restaurant in the area. I highly recommend the Pizza "La Boheme".

Went here before the Puccini opera, while everything was on time the food was nothing special. The staff was friendly.

I have been here many times with family and friends and I have never been disappointed. Both restaurant and pizzeria offer a variety of fancy uncommon dishes both from the sea and meat. Don't miss the wholemeal flour pizza. Cozy and nice staff too.

There's not a great choice if you are going to eat in Torre del Lago near the lake before the opera (at the Puccini Festival). Diesis is a friendly place, BUT it looks out over a car park and there is nowhere to eat outside. The food is only average at best and the menu limited. Pizza looked great but... More

It was an excellent choice. I ordered a salad,... More

Came across this absolute gem of a restaurant during a week stay in Florence. We headed to the coast for the day and visited Torre de Lago, we stopped for lunch in Diesis and I fell in love with this restaurant. My husband and I had the grilled fish and seafood which was delicious, our 5 year old son didn't... More
