Outside the city of Sesto towards the hills, Ulivo Rosso is one of the nicest places to run away from the Italian hot summery temperatures. In the middle of the country side, surrounded by olive trees, the food is excellent as well as the service. Do not miss the chance to enjoy their fish soup, or the deep fried calamari... More

The Ulivo Rosso restaurant is a nice place where to have excellent traditional food in a modern gourmet re-elaboration. During the summer the external terrace gives an additional romantic touch.

We had dinner at the Ulivo Rosso while staying in the guest house of the same name (but not connected) upstairs for 3 nights during our recent visit to the Florence area. If you are Italian or speak Italian, this place will be perfect for you. If not, it will still be great, but it will require some work to... More

I went here with my girlfriend who is from Florence and so it was with some anticipation that I drove up into the hills behind Florence to try the famous Florentine Blue Steak. To say I was impressed is an understatement. The starters were gorgeous and very generous in their portions. When the main course arrived it was so big... More

I really enjoyed dining at this place yesterday evening! The food was just great, we got one appetizer and one first course each. All dishes were prepared with great knowhow and great care - they looked fantastic and tasted awesome :) The red wine we chose from the menu was also really good. Prices I'd say mid- to mid-high, but... More

We were a group of 6, 4 adults and 2 kids. Kids had pizza but the drinks they ordered came late . We ordered antipasti, mine was a bread with very salty mortadella and cream cheese. The second course was a mix of three pasta dishes. To say the least the fish tasted of meat and the pasta was undercooked.... More

We ordered only the pizza and were not disappointed...fresh veges on top. Delicious crusty, rich cheese. It was so close to our B&B, I wish we had found it sooner in our trip!
