Wonderful setting, great food

A wonderful view overlooking Florence. Certainly worth the walk to it. Take bus #7 from San Marco square for 1.9 euros to Fiesole. The museum and Roman/Etruscan ruins are certainly worth a visit. A five - ten minute walk up the road in front of the church. Service and food were outstanding... read more

Stunning view over all of the Fiorentine Valley with food to match. Our favorite so far after 3 weeks in Florence. Scrumptious soufflé appetizers, porcini mushroom or zucchini. And all four pastas were excellent with the favorite being the pici with speck, saffron , and zucchini . Well worth the 5 minute walk up the hill from the piazza.

Everything about this place is truly incredible. Sure, driving here was a challenge. Walking up the steep hill was interesting. But none of that matters when you are seated with a view of the city you just finished exploring. We had emailed ahead of time to confirm they could prepare a gluten free meal for my wife. They responded quickly... More

Amazing views from the top of the hill, we had two large tables on the outside terrace. I would recommend getting a table there if possible rather than inside if only for the view. Staff were friendly and looked after us. Was no issue for them catering for our party of 15. Really good wine selection. Best Resturant in fiesole... More

The restaurant is just 10 mins drive from town. It located in the peak and u may enjoy the full view of Florence. The service is very good and make us feel very relax. Food is excellent, specially bistecca. We will absolutely back next time in Florence.

You have to walk up a steep hill to get to this place. The location is quiet and has an amazing view over Florence. We turned up on a Monday evening without booking and were just able to get a place (as we were early) - inside with a great view over Florence. The food was just great - all... More

A wonderful evening was had at this gorgeously charming restaurant on the Fiesole hillside, with a viewpoint terrace just a few yards away for fantastic views out over Florence. Excellent food, amazing wine, not amazingly cheap, but still very reasonable for the quality. Book in advance is recommended, gets very busy! (We arrived in the afternoon in person, and booked...

In a very quiet location and with an amazing view over Florence. The food is great, both for the taste and the look, the staff is very present and welcoming and all of this for a really reasonable price. I would greatly recommend this restaurant and definitely go back if I get the chance!!

First of all be prepared to walk UPHILL and it is s steep hill! But you will be well rewarded by both the food and the view. No wonder this is consistently rated one of the best restaurants around Florence.

A good restaurant with great service and fair traditional food. Marvellous view, a bit of uphill walk but worth it.
