Perfect food, location and service!

Wonderful view on Florence, excellent food and wine, very friendly service. Even on a sunday lunch with huge tables of Florentine families, you won't feel like an average tourist but like a regular customer that everyone from the cook to the boss wants to please.

This restaurant has been recommended by our Italian tour guide. It's in Fiesole on the top of a hill. To get there you need bus 7 from San Marco square 1.20 euro and then walk up a steep hill behind the church. It is so worth it. The views are fantastic, the food and wine amazing and stuff very friendly.... More

We went this evening and shared an exquisite meal. Beautiful views over Frienze made the climb up the hill more than worth it. The staff were friendly and helpful. A great selection of wines. And evening finished with my better half accepting my proposal of marriage. A wonderful place to share this moment together

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, great wine selection, and a view that is... 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...
