Relaxing after a stiff climb to find it.

The restaurant is a long way up the hill in Fiesole but worth the walk/climb except for those that suffer from health issues. The service was great and you would find it hard to get a better panaromic view of Florence from a small restaurant. The food was classical and excellent and the wines well... read more

Stumbled past this place whilst walking to the Panorama on my birthday. The terrace looked so inviting and beautiful we tried to go in but were told to come back at 12:30 when they open! (It was 12). Sat in the terrace with the most beautiful views of Florence, shared a meat plate and received free bruschetta which was delicious,... More

By far, the best restaurant and food on our whole trip to Italy. It's worth the trek up the hill. Service was 5 star.

We pre-booked a table to celebrate my daughter’s 21st Birthday on 14th June Expectations were therefore high but knew from previous Trip Advisor reviews it was going to be brilliant. The location and astonishing views over Florence from our table were truly fabulous. Danni was our waiter for the entire evening who made sure our every dining need was met…….serving us with extremely high...

After two weeks in Italy, we happened upon this restaurant while walking around Fiesole. Every plate we had was scrumptious and the wine we ordered the best we had in Italy. The eating experience was totally worth the bill.

You could be forgiven for passing this little restaurant by while you huff and puff your way up to the panorama in Fiesole as it is just off the beaten path and very discreet. But you would be missing out on a fantastic dining experience. We sat at one of the tables outside, which affords a breathtaking view of Florence... More

A pleasant uphill walk from the square will take you to this wonderful location overlooking Florence. Just order the Crescent pear and pecorino pasta with rochefort and poppy seeds 12.00 € and you will be in heaven. The Fantasy of desserts is enough for 4 people. Enjoy!

Amazing location and spectacular view. Be sure to reserve a table enough in advance for having dinner outside (best view). Quality food and with great presentation. Friendly and professional service. Right price for what you get . Definitively recommended!!

Discovered quite by chance as we walked past it on the steep climb up... 'Can this be as good as it looks?', we thought. It was. Attentive, friendly but relaxed service, giving the impression that these guys were proud of the restaurant and looking forward to you eating and enjoying yourself. The view is unbelievable and the wine and food... More
