Good local food

Very Italian! Very much for meat eaters. Friendly staff. Excellent wine which was very cheap. No English menu (we were in Italy) but very helpful staff who interpreted. Good if you are prepared to experiment.

We seek out Perseus (now apparently named Fiesolano) every time we travel to Italy. Tucked in the center of Fiesole's quaint town square, this ristorante serves quite possibly the best cut of meat in Italy - la bistecca fiorentina. Cooked rare, perfectly seared/seasoned, and coupled with una bottiglia di Brunello di Montalcino, the meal last night was an unforgettable experience.... More

I highly recommend this restaurant: - for starter: Filetto di Manzo alla tartara (steak tartar) amazing - the waiter prepares the dish in front of you - main course: La Bistecca Alla Fiorntina - it's a T bone steak of 1.2 Kg (including the bone) for 2 people - dessert: a baked pear in wine sauce All was great!

We saw this restaurant on Travel channel, Florence episode with Andrew Zimmern. And a big bold guy on the episode waited on our table! We are not a big meat eater, but eating local food is a big part of traveling different country! So we did, and we were so glad that we did. As our waiter recommended, we ordered... More

We went to the restaurant with great excitement according to some reviews. Our experience was horrible from our waiter to the food. I have had florentine steak several times since we have been here and I know it is rare but the steak was tough. Our waiter was rude. My friend had the chicken and it was overlooked and very...

We decided to try this restaurant as we read it was good and also very close to our hotel. We have managed to get a table without reservation - lucky us as later it was fully booked. I've noticed the very nice decoration and the plates were from Poland - I know them well. The bread and the vegetables as... More

We made a reservation, party of four for 7:30 on a Friday night. Perfect time as our waiter had time to help us with our selections. Two ordered the florentine steak and two ordered different chicken dishes, sling with roasted potatoes and grilled veggies. There was a huge bottle of chianti on the table and they charge you according to... More

Phenomenal steak with great atmosphere. Among the best steak Florentine you will ever have. Blackened on the outside and rare on the inside the steak is outstanding. Charming atmosphere and good service. A cab ride from the center but well worth the visit.
