AMAZING!

The staff were so attentive and courteous the whole time we were there. The food was absolutely delicious and there dessert of Mascarpone cheese cream with coffee-flavoured thin biscuits and chocolate is the best dessert I have had in Italy. You are truly missing out if you do not go!

We took an afternoon trip out of Florence to visit Fiesole and had lunch here. Wow!! We've been coming to Florence for 30 years and this was one of the finest meals we've ever had. The wine list has anything you could want, we settled on a bottle of Tignanello, because we love the wine and had never seen it... More

Food ok but steak was served cold (had probably been standing unheated in the kitchen). Had to send it back. No apologies offered. Paccheri were fine, mixed salad too. Ravioli with ricotta also good. Potatoes snatched away without comment whilst steak was being reheated. New fork grabbed at eating end from a nearby table with no awareness of hygiene. Norah... More

Looks like others have had similar excellent experiences... We spent a day in Florence having taken the train from Rome. Went to this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend who has eaten all over the world (and then some) and said this was one of the best places he's been. We took a cab up to Fiesole--about 15 minutes... More

On a tip from a friend we trekked out to La Reggia for dinner. The views were fantastic but easily topped by the food and service. Make sure to arrive early but time your stay to include sunset and views of the city at night. Great picture opportunities. Don't miss out on the Florentine staple, the most massive Steak you...

On our last day in Florence, we came here, mostly for the view, and had a great lunch with a bottle of reasonably priced wine. I had the baccalao, and my wife the filet. All very good. Service exceptional!

Just the right combination. Incredible view. Terrific service. Simply amazing food. All without pretense. It's got a great dynamic, very lively and comfortable. Highly recommend for a most special dinner.

Excellent culinary experience. Everything tried during lunch was perfectly done. The service was also superb, like they wanted to ensure your visit there will be memorable. One of the best restaurants I have been in my business travels. It is not very expensive either.

The place and people working there are very very nice and , expecially with foreign people. Great choice of wine. Food quality is great and quite different from typical Tuscany food you can find nearly anywhere in Florence.
