“Exquisite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I went to La Reggia in Fiesole for a dinner. They served zucchini fritatas with truffle shavings and I must say I could have eaten at least three more servings.

The staff was a bit of chaotic but the food was really great.

“Stunning view, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful view over Florence, wonderful food and great service. Takes a walk to get there, but it is worth the effort!
Favorite primi dishes: fantastic porchini mushroom risotto and the perfect nettle and sage ravioli! After that we had real good secondi dishes: Filetto with green pepper and filetto with bacon and grapes. Great experience. Get there early or make a reservation.

“Unbelievable! So good i went twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is possibly the best view from any restaurant in Florence. That aside the food is amazing and the service is second to none. Take a walk to the top of the hill and eat at this very special place. I wont say more as i dont want to ruin for you all. Simple incredible

“Not to miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

If you visit Fiesole and don't eat here just shoot yourself in the foot, the pain will be less than skipping the best restaurant in town. A truly memorable meal from start to finish. The prices could be doubled and still be a bargain, but with that said the bill was one of the fairest seen in this region. Do not pass on dessert, it's one to remember.

“Sunny lunch in Fiesole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We came across this restaurant by chance and were tempted in by the menu and the superb location which gave us a table in the sun looking over Florence. The crostini and the pasta (ravioli with nettle and sage butter sauce and taglierini with zucchini and pigeon) were superb. We had a half bottle of sumptuous Bolgheri wine and goat's cheese with mostarda and honey. The side salad was ordinary but the rest was excellent. Well worth a visit.
